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 Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’m scheduled to depart here May 9th.
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 90 miles from Leavenworth to Monroe, Washington.
We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.
Here are some of the photos that I took along the way…

Shortly after our arrival, my good friend for 62 years, Al Penta who lives about one mile away, stopped by for a visit. We spent an enjoyable two hours catching up on the happenings of the last two years since we were last here…
Mary has pressing business awaiting at her home in California. Tomorrow I’ll drive her in the Bronco to SeaTac Airport where she’ll catch a fight home. After dropping her off, I’ll go to the Seattle VA Hospital for an eye exam and my annual physical…which I missed last year. I’ll remain here for a few more days having some work done on the Bronco and hopefully the motorhome by my friend and mechanic, Kenny. Once the work is completed, I’ll head for Mary’s home in California.
Yesterday was a cloudy and cold day with some showers. High temperature for the day was 57.
Forecast high temperature for today is 61 degrees and sunny with a shower.
Enjoying Thousand Trails RV Resorts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
