Gateway To Cape Cod Campground, Rochester, Massachusetts – Day 2

The motorhome is parked at the Gateway to Cape Cod Campground, at Rochester, Massachusetts. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails RV Resorts system of which Mary and I are members.

This location marks the furthest point east the motorhome will travel during my 2011-2013 two-year circumnavigation of the United States. Mary and I thoroughly visited Cape Cod in 2010. I plan to depart here later today.

Mary will fly in to meet me at Boston, Massachusetts tomorrow afternoon.

Yesterday was another lousy weather day. Gray, cloudy, overcast, spotty rain showers and the humidity stayed above 95% all day! With the horrible humidity, I’ve had the A/C running 24/7.

I took a few photos on my early morning walk yesterday…

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!

Gateway To Cape Cod Campground, Rochester, Massachusetts – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 25 miles from East Bridgewater to Rochester, Massachusetts to the Gateway to Cape Cod Campground. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails RV Resort system of which Mary and I are members.

This location marks the furthest point east the motorhome will travel during my 2011-2013 two-year circumnavigation of the United States. Mary and I thoroughly visited Cape Cod in 2010. I plan to depart here tomorrow.

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 next Tuesday.

The weather continues lousy in New England. While the high temperatures have dissipated for the moment…the horrible humidity remains. This morning at 5:30 AM it was 90%, It’s raining right now with more on the way/ YUK!

In the below Google Earth image my location is shown by the yellow dot…

Regarding yesterday’s Full-Time RVing Seminar… Camping USA told me they have not held a seminar in mid-summer before. Because most folks were out RVing we only had 18 attending…

My cousin Mike took the above photo with my camera. My cousin Suzie who I have not seen for many years even made it with her husband, Lenny. My camera some how accidentally got in the watercolor mode…sorry about the harsh colors…

Despite the smaller turnout folks seemed to really enjoy it. I got this nice comment from my cousin Mike…

Thanks a lot for a very informative seminar. Nice to have an experienced RV’er with your 49 years of RV’ing, including 18 years as a full timer, offering advice. Well Done!! Happy Camping. Response was overwhelming for this seminar.
We will be talking about it for some time. Stay Safe!

Camping USA did a nice job washing the motorhome in the watercolor mode…

So, here’s my new camping spot…

And the usual dinette window photo…

With the horrible humidity, I had the A/C going immediately upon arrival.

RV Trip Favorite Photos #260-266

Jim says:

While Mary and I are taking care of business here at her home…there is little “new stuff” to Blog about daily. So I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite photos from our recent 298 day, 16,000+ mile RV trip around the United States.

Since scenery and people snapshot-type photos require little special photography skills…and being limited by the abilities of my digital camera…I none the less took some photos that I really liked. They are presented in no special order of favoritism. If you desire to see more associated photos and information about this area, you will need to find this date in the archive files of this Blog.

Today’s photos were taken at Cape Cod, Massachusetts on June 22, 2010……

72 degrees and sunny. Scanned another 74 of Mary’s old family photos to digital format. Helped Mary’s son Doug (a carpenter) remodel large closet for better space efficiency. See before and after photos below. Hard to get good photos in such tight quarters.
