Exploring Pitcairn Island By Drone…

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.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

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 Thousand Trails Soledad Canyon RV Resort in Acton, California. I’m scheduled to depart April 2nd.



I have been publishing a travel blog for more than ten years. I’ve used this platform to document my extensive travels of the North American Continent ever since I took up photography in 1974.


Unfortunately, I was not into photography when I was in the United States Navy more than 50 years ago, so I have no photographic records of those travels to a number of countries.


Years ago, I invented the question…  Why is an RV and a good book much alike?

Answer: They both take you to wonderful places. The RV takes you physically and a good book takes you mentally.


My favorite book(s) of all time is The Bounty Trilogy which you can read about by clicking this link…

Bounty Trilogy


The Bounty Trilogy consists of three parts…

1) Mutiny on the Bounty … The story of the actual mutiny which occurred in 1779.

2) Men against the sea … The story of Captain Bligh and the men forced to leave the Bounty.

3) Pitcairn Island … The story of the mutineers final landing-place where they burned the Bounty.


Pitcairn Island is located in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean. Here’s a great link describing it as…

One of the hardest places to get to on Earth…

Over the past few years I’ve looked at a number of websites about Pitcairn Islands. At my advanced age it’s unlikely I’ll ever get there. If you have not been there, you likely not end going there either.


A couple of days ago I ran across the below delightful 36:08 minute video. I so enjoyed it, I decided to share it with you. I encourage you to view it full screen…











 Forecast for today is partly sunny and 58 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of California. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


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!
