Lacey, Washington – Day 2 (GA610)

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 in Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart here June 2nd.



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 October 4, 2013…



The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #94 in Lacey, Washington. I’ll depart later this morning.


I lived in this area from 1980 – 1995. Yesterday I visited with some old friends.


I enjoy stopping in unannounced…you know sort of a surprise…just walk through the door and say hello…


First was Keri Kauffman who was my hair stylist for many years…

Sometimes they surprise me by not being where they are supposed to be. At Public Access Thurston County Television (from 1992 – 1995, I hosted 95 TV programs here), I stopped to see Deb Vinsel the manager there for many years. She wasn’t there because she had a doctor’s appointment and they were not quite sure of her return time. So I passed about one hour with Robert (center) and Vicki (right) whom I had not met before. They were intrigued with my lifestyle, Blog and YouTube Videos. If you would like to see my YouTube Videos, click this link…






Susan Willis, (left) whom I knew back then came in about 10 minutes before I departed…







I had said my good-byes and actually reached my Bronco, when I heard HEY!!! It was Deb, so I got to chat with her for a few minutes…




Which made me late leaving for my lunch appointment with my ex-attorney and friend Shawn Newman. He was running on a tight schedule and combined with a mix-up on my part about the location of the restaurant where we were supposed to meet for lunch, I missed him by five minutes. I did not have his cell phone number, so back I went to the motorhome for lunch. Shawn and I chatted later in the day…see you next year!






Larry Seaberg stopped in at 1:00 PM. His wife Jan had other things to attend to…







At 2:30 PM, I drove the Bronco the about the two miles to visit with Jim and Joan Belluomini. They are now living in their 22 foot RoadTrek RV full-time and have been RVing since 1958…



It was nice to see my old friends all apparently well and doing well!


Yesterday’s high temperature was 58 degrees with partly cloudy/sunny skies. At 5:00 AM when I arose thus morning it was 40 degrees! Brrr! Time to put on some miles heading south!


Last night I watched another old movie from the 1930’s. This time it was 1932 – Tarzan, The Ape Man starring Johnny Weissmuller. Another classic!


Enjoying old friends 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!
