Iron Mountain, Michigan Day 2 (GA592)

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’ll depart here 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.

This entry was posted August 27, 2013…




The motorhome is still parked at Elks Lodge #700 in Iron Mountain, Michigan.



The saga of our electrical connections problem from the motorhome to the Bronco continues. First thing yesterday morning we arrived at Scotty’s electrical repair shop. Tony, the owner, told us the best he could do was an appointment at 3:00 PM. Since he’s the only guy in the area that does this kind of work, we reluctantly agreed.



From there we went to the East G Street location where Mary lived at about age ten. She said although the house looks nothing like she remembers it, it most likely is the one in which her family lived…

From there to grocery shopping…to gassing up the motorhome and filling up with fresh water…to doing laundry.



Then back to Scotty’s where he told me I had managed to wire both sides of the connection incorrectly. In an earlier Blog entry I’ve admitted, I’ve had no formal training in automotive electrics, plus without wiring diagrams or the proper test equipment…the odds were against me. Nonetheless, I thought I had been really careful taking the old assemblies apart and thought I put together the new assemblies in the same manner. Apparently not!



Having no other choice we left the Bronco and connector cable at Scotty’s. Tony told us that they might possibly be ready tomorrow (meaning today) afternoon or at the latest on Wednesday. Back we went in the motorhome with no Bronco attached to the Elks Club where we spent another night. So here we sit and wait. I expect we’ll do some more sight-seeing today while waiting for the repairs to be completed.



Yesterday was another horrendous weather day…96 degrees with high humidity. Another scorcher is forecast for today.. 88 degrees with a real feel of 102. At 5:00 AM this morning it was 75 degrees with 74% humidity. YUK!



Enjoying visiting places where you lived years ago is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 77 degrees.


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

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…


On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
