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 Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.
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 about 80 miles from Ivoryton, Connecticut to the Outdoor World Campground at Sturbridge, Massachusetts. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails Resort system of which I am a member, so I get to stay here at no cost for this week.
Mary is back at her home in California tending to some personal business. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 23rd.
I’m expecting to be here for about week and to spend most of my time hunkered down inside the motorhome riding out a forecasted heat wave. For the next six days the temperatures are supposed to be mid-90’s with similar humidity. YUK!!!
In the below Google Earth image my location is marked by the yellow dot…

When I arrived yesterday at 11:00 AM it was already 90 degrees and 87% humidity.
I settled into the worst part of the park which is where the sewer hookups are located away from the lake. The excessive heat has a tendency to increase odors from the black water (toilet) tank and I want to give that tank a good cleaning while I’m here this week.
Unfortunately in this part of the campground the sites are close together…
And the usual view from the dinette window photo…
The temperature when I arose at 5:00 AM was 73 degrees with 87% humidity. By around 8:00 AM I’ll close the windows and turn on the air-conditioning. Good thing I like to read because that’s what I’ll spend most of my day doing.
Which reminds me of a saying I created…
“Why are a good book and an RV much alike? Because they both can take you to wonderful places. The RV takes you there physically and the book takes you there mentally. 🙂
I’ll have more of this campground photos as the week progresses.
Enjoying air-conditioning in my motorhome is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!
