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.

This entry was posted July 22, 2013…

 

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 50 miles from Sturbridge to Sudbury, Massachusetts. It is parked at American Legion Post #191. I plan to leave here on Wednesday.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California tending to some personal business. She has made her plane reservations and will fly to meet me in Boston, Massachusetts on July 30th.

 

 

The heat wave is supposed to be over but you cannot prove it by me. Yesterday was 89 degrees in the shade with 50% humidity. It reached 95 degrees inside the motorhome yesterday afternoon.

This American Legion Post is located on a famous road..the Old Boston Post Road which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Post_Road

About one mile to the west is another famous place…Longfellow’s Wayside Inn. The oldest inn in the United States has been in continuous operation since 1716. It started as a two-room house in the early 1700’s. The pub has been in operation for almost 300 years and a 150 yard stretch of the original old Boston Post Road passes by the front step of the inn.

 

 

 

 

 

It was here in 1860 that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a series of poems entitled Tales of a Wayside Inn. Among those poems was…The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Palm Desert, California To Yuma, Arizona

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 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 155 miles from Palm Desert, California to Yuma, Arizona.

 

Most of the first one-half of the trip was on California Highway 111 along the eastern shore of the Salton Sea and directly atop the San Andreas Fault and 200 feet below sea level…

I enjoy this drive because there is very little traffic for about 30 miles along the shore of the Salton Sea…

When you get within about 75 miles of Mexico you start to see Border Patrol checkpoints. This first one stops vehicles heading north only…

Heading east on Interstate Highway 8 about 15 miles west of Yuma, Arizona you cross the six-mile wide Algodones Sand Dunes which you can read about by clicking this link…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algodones_Dunes

Upon arrival, I parked at my home American Legion Post #19. There’s a large parking area that can hold about a dozen-plus  RV;s. right now including myself there are six and I know a couple of the people here. I expect to be for only one or two nights…

 

 

 

 

As usual, the dinette photo window…

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is partly sunny and 72 degrees.

Allentown, Pennsylvania Day 3 (GA507)

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 23rd 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’m planning to depart November 26th.

 

 

 

 

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 May 31, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #367 in Allentown, Pennsylvania. We will depart later this morning.

 

 

Yesterday was Spoil Mary Day. She indicted she was in bad need on art fix…so I drove the Bronco the about three miles to the Allentown Art Museum of the Lehigh Valley. You can read about this museum by clicking their official website link…
http://www.allentownartmuseum.org/

Then we drove the about six blocks to downtown. We parked across the street from the Pennsylvania Power & Light building where I worked for about three years…36 years ago. It was built from 1926 to 1928. It has 23 stories and is 322 feet high. It’s the tallest building in Allentown. In 1930, the PPL Building was named the “best example of a modern office building” by Encyclopedia Britannica and also featured the world’s fastest elevator…

081

 

 

 

 

 

One block down Hamilton Boulevard to The Brew Works so Mary could get her craft beer. She had a Porter which she proclaimed the best she has ever tasted. So good in fact…she had two. Here she gives the place a “two fingers up” rating….also an indication she was on her second beer…

084

 

 

And I was forced to give the place a “two fingers down” rating because…

*It was to dark in the place to read a menu…

*The print on the menu was too small…

*The place was too noisy…

*Every song played on the music system I had never heard before…

*They had no Miller Lite Beer which I drink, so was forced to drink iced tea…

The result was one happy old chick and one grumpy old man…  🙂

Here are some photos from the Brew Works. A great place to take photos because of lots of reflections…

From there we went to an authentic Jamaican restaurant to eat. Mary loved the place and I gave it a “two fingers down” rating because the chicken had lots of small bones in it and they had neither Miller Lite Beer or iced tea. Oh well, it was Mary’s day anyways and she had a good time.

 

 

 

 

 

Along the way we saw the children playing in the water fountains…

093

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday was another scorcher and it’s supposed to be even hotter today at 91 and tomorrow at 92… with it really feeling to be 95 to 100 degrees. This is the sunrise taken at 5:30 AM…

003

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s an image from accuweather.com showing the heat and unhealthy air quality advisory. I’ve placed a green dot at the location of our destination for today in Oakland, New Jersey…

And we are still more than three weeks away from the official start of Summer!

 

 

Like yesterday, I hereby declare YUK, YUK and YUK for the current weather!

 

 

Enjoying interesting and air-conditioned museums is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

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.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Conner, Washington. I’ll depart here September 10th..

 

is losing all your friends.

 

Two days ago, I found out my good friend Colorado passed away about two weeks ago. He was found by a neighbor sitting in his chair alongside his motorhome. I spoke with him by phone only about a month ago and he mentioned no particular problems.

 

Although I had only known him two years, he had become my primary hang around with buddy in Yuma.

 

Here’s a link to a blog posting I wrote about him in 2017…

 

 

He was 77 years old. Same age as myself. Hmmm…

 

Rest in peace, amigo! I’ll miss you.  😦

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 66 degrees.

I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Bow, Washington. I’ll depart here July 23rd..

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 February 21, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #403 in Lake Arthur, Louisiana.

Yesterday we waited out the weather forecast of severe thunderstorms with large hail and significant risk of tornadoes. Fortunately, the tornado warnings ended at 7:00 PM with none occurring. We did receive some heavy rain squalls and some wind.

 

 

Every Thursday the American Legion members go into the post kitchen and cook up a meal. Yesterday it was Jambalaya and yummy…

We were told not to leave Lake Arthur until we experienced a Bloody Mary at the LA Bar. Mary drinks them, I do not. She said it was unusual and tasty…

A good portion of our day was spent reading our books. Our departure plans remain undecided at this time. Another enjoyable day in Louisiana!

 

 

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