We Were Warned By Paul Harvey Back In 1965…

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.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 26th.

 

 

This is the sixth video which I guess is becoming a series about how politicians are destroying our beautiful country… in this case…big government.

 

 

One of the great things of being older like myself, is many years ago I got to listen on the radio to a very astute radio host… Paul Harvey. He had a very deliberate voice and an intriguing delivery style which really held your attention. He called his program… The Rest Of the Story. His messages were usually thought-provoking. I remember enjoying them greatly.

 

If you do not know or forget who Paul Harvey was… here’s a Wikipedia link to help you understand… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Harvey

 

 

In 1965 he warned us what would happen to our beautiful country if we continue on the same downhill path… once again, very thought-provoking.

 

Please remember his message was recorded 54 years ago and in my humble opinion, I believe we have been on a very downhill slippery slope for about the last 100 years. It’s truly sad to witness the decaying of our beautiful country.

 

Here’s the video presentation…

I hope you enjoyed the video.

Forecast for today is sunny and 74 degrees.

 

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Santa Rosa Lake State Park – Day 4

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is currently parked at Santa Rosa Lake State Park, about 125 miles east of Albuquerque.

==========================================

2011-2013 – 6th Circumnavigation Of The USA…Update #4

This Blog posting…which I will post from time-to-time…will be used to present my/our travels on this almost two-year circumnavigation of the United States…my 6th…Mary’s 2nd. During these circumnavigations, I try to travel on roads I’ve not seen before…I’m about 90% successful in that regard.

The only things I know about our potential destinations during this upcoming adventure is that I/we plan to spend a good portion of 2012 exploring the State of New Mexico. In 2013 we’re planning to attend my oldest grand-daughter’s high school graduation in June in southeastern Connecticut. Other than that…we’ll just have to find out one-day-at-a-time where our fates will send us.

The trip began from Murphys, California on November 29, 2011 with 35,956.5 miles on the motorhome odometer. In addition to showing the route taken, I intend to also document where I/we parked during this journey. My guess is that within the about next 700+ days we will park in about 250+ different places.

Here’s the map so far which you may click on to see in a larger view…
