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’ll depart here later this morning.
About a week ago the Bronco started running a little warmer than usual. Fortunately I was still in Yuma where I had access to my favorite mechanic. Since then I have replaced the oxygen sensor, water pump, fan and radiator….all factory original from 33 years ago! Simply amazing.
After that length of service, I have no grudges about spending a few bucks to replace them. Vehicles are simply nothing more than electrical and mechanical devices. They work hard and occasionally a part needs to be replaced. I do so with happily hoping I’ll get another 33 years of service.
Hmmmm… let’s see, if that happens I’ll be 111 years old! 🙂
Here’s a few photos….

Here’s Polo’s phone number in case you are in Yuma and need a good mechanic…

Polo doing his thing…

I hope you enjoyed the photos.
Forecast for today is sunny and 78 degrees.
Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
