Cactus In Yuma, Arizona

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.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.

 

 

I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!

 

 

Since I’ve been coming to the Yuma area for a number of years during the Winter, I’ve explored the area pretty thoroughly. Rather than re-visit each place again, I’ve decided to show photos I’ve taken in the past. All these places are within about a one-hour drive from Yuma.

 

 

This blog was first published in January, 2015…

 

 

 

Yesterday I blogged about the Territorial Prison Cemetery at Yuma, Arizona. Directly adjacent there are several interesting varieties of cactus…some reaching over 12 feet tall…

Cactus in Yuma, Arizona

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 Shady Acres Mobile Home and RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I expect to be here a while hiding out from the cold, wet weather. Average temperatures in January are high 69.6, low 47.6. In February, high 73.8, low 50.1. As nice as Yuma is, I wouldn’t want to be here in August.  🙂

 

Two days ago I blogged about the Territorial Prison Cemetery at Yuma, Arizona. Directly adjacent there are several interesting varieties of cactus…some reaching over 12 feet tall…

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 Yuma area blogs.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was sunny and 85 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 86 degrees. We are in a stretch for the next week or so with weather about 10-15 degrees above normal. Now it’s to dang hot!

Cactus in Yuma, Arizona

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California. Less than 1/2 mile away is the Colorado River and on the other side…the sunniest place on Earth…Yuma, Arizona. I’m here hanging out and enjoying the nice weather. I have several friends in the area. Mary is now expecting to rejoin me here in later January.

Yesterday I blogged about the Territorial Prison Cemetery at Yuma, Arizona. Directly adjacent there are several interesting varieties of cactus…some reaching over 12 feet tall…

Arizona Cactus

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California right across the Colorado River from Yuma, Arizona. I’m here with my friend Randy Vining and others…hanging out and enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is tending to business at home. She has made her flight reservations to rejoin me on January 28th.

Since I’ve been coming to the Yuma area for a number of years during the Winter, I’ve explored the area pretty thoroughly. Rather than re-visit each place again, I’ve decided to show photos I’ve taken in the past. All these places are within about a one-hour drive from Yuma.

Ajo Mountain Drive – Arizona

The motorhome is parked in Mary’s yard at her home at Murphys, California. My departure date to head South is now set for December 2nd. About one month later Mary will fly to meet me in Yuma, Arizona.

In the meantime, I’ll continue cleaning and doing minor work on both the motorhome and Bronco. After our 682 day journey, they were both ready for some attention.

Yesterday was a mostly sunny day at 72 degrees. The forecast calls for sunny weather in the 60’s and low 70’s through November 18th. Today is forecast sunny and 73 degrees.

A CHANGE…

I’ve decided that my current daily activities (cleaning the interior of the motorhome) are not really all that exciting to read or see. I’ve further decided to share with you some of the photos from our recent 682 days of circumnavigating the United States.

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

Ajo Mountain Drive

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS. UNLESS I DID SOMETHING UNIQUE OR UNUSUAL YESTERDAY, THE PHOTO ALBUM WILL CHANGE DAILY.

My miscellaneous chores list is now complete. The only thing awaiting my attention is more cleaning on the interior of the motorhome and to assist Mary with some of her house chores.

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