Some Spring Cleaning…

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I’ll depart here tomorrow morning.


Normally my visits with Mary in April and November run about 14-17 days. Because of her current medical situation she has asked my to limit my visit this time.


Also normally I do my spring cleaning at Mary’s house because it’s so convenient to do so. Because of my limited stay this time I got my Bronco thoroughly serviced and did the heavy-duty and unusually inconvenient cleaning done. Defrosted freezer, cleaned refrigerator and hand-scrubbed the linoleum floor.


In addition Mary took a couple of photos of me scrubbing the roof of the motorhome. When I leave tomorrow, I’ll make my usual stop at the 49er Truck Stop Truck/RV Wash.. They used to manually scrub the roof but no longer provide that service, Insurance, OSHA regs, ???


It had been several years and the roof was getting quite dirty. Here are Mary’s photos…

It was sunny and 81 degrees while I was up there…really hot! I’m no longer used to working that hard. It’s not as clean as new, but at least it looks somewhat better for my efforts…



I’ll continue my spring cleaning at my next destination of Thousand Trails RV Resort in Nicolaus, California.



I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 69 degrees.

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

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!
