About ramblinmanjimj

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jim Jaillet was born in Gardner, Massachusetts on December 5, 1940 and, like a true Sagittarius he says he is "addicted to the life of a traveler." He built his first "RV" in the form of a converted International Panel Truck in 1962. Painted a beautiful metallic green with "The Weekend Wanderer" in a gold color, it was the first of many RVs he has owned over the years. He has been RVing full-time since he retired in 1995 and he says he somewhat resembles that old Johnny Cash song "I've been everywhere, man!" He hopes to be the first 100-year-old RVer!

My New Hobby…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. While here I’ll perform routine maintenance and cleaning of both the motorhome and Bronco.

Mary had surgery on her right shoulder April 15th.

I want to assist her during recovery however I can. I assisted her with her left shoulder surgery in 2009. Whenever it’s convenient and I know that she is comfortable, I’ll make my future travel plans at that time.

 

My new hobby…

My RVing lifestyle is changing. I started RVing part-time in 1964. In 1995 I started the full-time RVing lifestyle. In all those years. I have been to a great deal of the North American Continent. I’ve made six circumnavigations of the United States…the last one was a two-year affair during 2012 and 2013. I’ve seen many things and have met many interesting people.

During my time on the east coast in 2013, I told my son in Connecticut, I would not be returning. I no longer wish to experience the excessive heat and humidity to be found there during the summer. I’m planning to complete my remaining years west of the Rocky Mountains…staying as best as I can in 65-75 degree temperatures and taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership…primarily in the states of California, Oregon and Washington. This means running in familiar territory that I’ve been before and that means less exploring and more time on my hands. What to do with this extra time?

Three months ago today I was in Yuma, Arizona. I purchased a Hohner Special 20 Harmonica and since that time I’ve been studying and practicing about an hour almost every day bringing music into my life. I chose the harmonica because it’s small and requires no maintenance or lyrics to learn.

 

The Special 20 is a professional-grade diatonic harmonica…

I’m finding the hardest thing to do is to constantly play clean separate notes. I’m told the more I practice…this more proficient I’ll play.

I signed up for lessons on the Internet and now its just a matter of more practicing. I’ve accumulated more 250 songs online which I’m now practicing.

 

Mary stopped by the motorhome the other day while I was practicing and took this photo…

Below are  some samples of my still beginner-level songs which I’ve recorded over the last couple of weeks. For this blog entry, I will play only the first verse of any song. Since I’m still a beginner, there maybe a slight little glitch here and there. I hope you enjoy them…just click an arrow on the left…

 

 

 

Amazing Grace…

 

Blue Danube Waltz…

 

Edelweiss…

 

Galway Bay…

 

I Believe…

 

I’m Dreaming of  A White Christmas…

 

I Love You For Sentimental Reasons…

 

Kentucky Waltz…

 

Molly Malone…

 

Music Of The Night…

 

My Country Tis Of Thee…

 

O Christmas Tree…

 

O Shenandoah…

 

Ode To Joy…

 

Oh What A Beautiful Morning…

 

Pagan Love Song…

 

Red River Valley…

 

Silent Night…

 

Streets Of Laredo…

 

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious…

 

Taps…

 

The Bells Of Saint Mary…

 

Vaya Con Dios…

 

Walking In A Winter Wonderland…

 

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling…

 

When The Saints Go Marching In…

 

Without A Song..

 

You Always Hurt The One you love…

 

You Are My Sunshine…

 

You Are So Beautiful…

 

 

 I hope you enjoyed the sounds.

Photography Assignment #5

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. While here I’ll perform routine maintenance and cleaning of both the motorhome and Bronco.

Mary had surgery on her right shoulder April 15th.

I want to assist her during recovery however I can. I assisted her with her left shoulder surgery in 2009. Whenever it’s convenient and I know that she is comfortable, I’ll make my future travel plans at that time.

While hanging out here, I thought I’d post some earlier entries about things and places near here in Murphys, California. I first published this blog November 18, 2011…

 

 

The 15 minute photography assignment series…take 15 hopefully interesting/unusual photos within a circle radius of 100 feet…regardless of my location. To record images that most other folks who are not into photography never see. With only 15 minutes…there is not a lot of time to contemplate composure, lighting and focus…all hand-held…which means…no tripods allowed. A challenge to my photography skills.

All of my photos are close to all natural. No doctoring in photo image manipulation programs…other than minor cropping and fill-light/contrast adjustments in Picasa 3. However today I really push Picasa 3 because I wanted to create some unusual abstracts. You may click upon the photos to see them in a larger view.

The location is Murphys, California on November 17, 2011.

 

Yesterday I decided to further challenge myself…all 15 photos to be taken exclusively on the interior of the motorhome. Here are the photos…

It’s kind of unusual for me to have a lot of free time on my hands. I know I’m retired, but generally I’m on the go, places to see, people to meet, cleaning, preventative maintenance on both of our vehicles, a good book to read, etc… So, in the future, when I find myself in this mode…when finding something to write about for a daily Blog entry…that problem has been solved. I’ll just assign myself another 15 minute photography assignment and viola!…another blog entry.

I just love being a photographer and a full-time RVer. What a lucky guy I am

A most enjoyable 15 minutes!

There are literally hundreds of photographs waiting to be taken within the range of a circle of 100 feet radius. They’re everywhere…they’re everywhere! And lucky me…I get to see them whenever I desire!

No matter where I travel with the RV and Bronco…this statement essentially remains true.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Central America Trip #102

Recently I’ve been running blogs about my 2004 Central America trip. While here, I’m intending to continue those postings while also alternating with this area blogs.

Today, I’m taking you back to my…

2004 Central America trip…

This trip ended up being 343 days and 16,000+ miles through the back-country of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. 11 rigs started the trip, within a week we broke into three smaller groups for ease of traveling. Only myself and one other rig went the full, pre-planned route. All the others dropped out for various reasons. All returned safely to the United States. I’m planning to show these photos, more or less, 10 a day, whenever I’m not doing something else deserving a blog entry. FINALLY, it must be remembered these photos are prior to my switching to digital in 2006. The films were developed during our trip and the lack of quality control sometimes is plainly evident.

 

Today…Mexico (north-bound) 27…

 

We are still in Leon…

Three days ago I didn’t know I would be doing this. It all began while Mary was away babysitting her two grandsons…my chores were essentially done…and I had a lot of time on my hands. So I ventured out into Mary’s yard with my self-assignment of…take 15 photos in 15 minutes within a circle radius of 100 feet.

Today is my third day with the same assignment. This time all the photos were taken of/on my 1986 Ford Bronco II. I think these photos do a good job of illustrating how a photographer sees things that people who are not into photography miss as they walk through the world.

Reflections have always been a favorite subject of photographers…and I found a bunch. I urge you to click upon these 15 photos that I took in 15 minutes so that you may see them in their larger view…
