Taos, New Mexico

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Soledad Canyon RV Resort in Acton, California. Mary is at home attending to personal matters. I am scheduled to arrive there on March 5th.

California has been in an extended drought, but this week back to back winter storms starting yesterday and ending Sunday will bring lots of much-needed rain to the area. I’m in a comfortable place to ride out the storms. I expect to leave here on Monday.

I’ve had a change of plans. Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year. It’s always been difficult getting to that VA Hospital, so I’ve made arrangements to change to a local VA Clinic in Sonora, California…about 25 miles from Mary’s home. My appointment to meet my new primary care doctor is on March 7th who will make the necessary arrangements to have my eye problem corrected.

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

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!

Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #262 in Fortuna, California. Mary is home attending to personal matters. I expect to depart here on Monday.

I’ve had a change of plans. Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year. It’s always been difficult getting to that VA Hospital, so yesterday I burned up a lot of my cell phone minutes making arrangements to change to a local VA Clinic in Sonora, California…about 25 miles from Mary’s home. I now have a March 7th appointment to meet my new primary care doctor there. He will get me to the eye people and I hoping that I might have my eye surgery before Mary leaves for her three-week trip with her grandson to Turkey on April 18th. I now have plans to arrive Mary’s home in 11 days on March 5th.

A note about today’s photo album. It contains 493 photos and will take about 18 minutes to view completely. I stayed at Heron Lake State Park for about three months nursing my painful injuries from the terrible accident of May 27, 2012. It’s a beautiful place and I saw many spectacular cloud formations, sunsets and sunrises…and, oh, the vast array of colors! Many were taken from the dinette window of the motorhome and some are in the watercolor mode. As always, all of the photos were taken in the hand-held mode. I hope you enjoy them near as much as I enjoyed taking them. If you missed the Blog entry about the accident, you can read about it by clicking this link…

Monroe, Washington – Day 3

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington.

Yesterday morning I drove Mary to Seatac Airport south of Seattle Washington, She has some important business that needs her attention at home back in California…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

With two people in the Bronco we were able to use the diamond lane and made it to the airport in 45 minutes. I then drove the 12 north to the VA Hospital where I had my first professional eye exam. I was told I have a cataract in my right eye and received a prescription to purchase prescription glasses. A couple of hours later my annual physical exam (which I missed last year because I was in New Mexico) went very well. No problems identified. Unable now to use the diamond lane, the ride back to the motorhome took 1.5 hours during the afternoon rush traffic. Makes me wonder why it’s called rush traffic!  🙂

Renewing my drivers license, and my VA exams accomplished completes two of the three reasons for returning to the Pacific Northwest. The third reason, having my friend and mechanic Kenny do some mechanical work on the Bronco and motorhome awaits completion. With heavy rain forecast for the weekend when we were supposed to get the work done, now may interfere with those plans. One Day At A Time is the order of the day!

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny cool day. High temperature for the day was 63.

Forecast high temperature for today is 57 degrees, cloudy with rain developing.
