Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.
Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.
Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 132 miles from Grosse Ile to Flint, Michigan.
In yesterday’s Blog entry I discussed an electrical problem I was having keeping the Bronco battery charged while driving down the highway. After further consideration I decided not to take it to an electrical shop because I’ve experienced occasional problems with a connector in the past…usually rectified by jiggling it. So, first stop yesterday was at an auto parts store where I bought a new connector. It’s kind of pain in the butt type of job, so I’ll replace it when the moment is right.
Second stop of the day was at America’s Discount Tires where I had the tires rotated and balanced on the Bronco. They accommodated me by doing the job without my having to unhook the Bronco from the motorhome…

Third stop of the day was to have an oil change done on the motorhome.
Fourth stop of the day was in Fraser to meet with an old friend Ray Ferullo whom I had not seen since I was 17 years old. We enjoyed a nice reunion at an Outback Steakhouse…
Continuing down the road we finally ended up at VFW Post #3027 in Flint, Michigan. We parked in the back of this friendly post where they even provided a 30 amp service electrical hookup…
Here’s the usual dinette window photo…
Since it was away from the road we enjoyed a restful night’s sleep. We’ll continue our northward journey later this morning.
Enjoying visiting with old friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…
