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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I expect to leave here May 8th. While here, I’ll be doing routine maintenance, repairs and general cleaning.
Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.
In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!
So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 20 miles from Lake Caballo State Park to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico where I am parked at Moose Lodge #2050…
Along the way the ABS light on the motorhome dash came on. Grrr…
While not earthshaking it stills need to be looked at to find out what the problem is. In the afternoon I took it to a local garage recommended by the administrator of the Moose Lodge. Since they do not regularly work on motorhomes…they were unable to locate the computer port to diagnosis the problem. So I have a 9:00 AM appointment at the local Chevrolet dealership this morning. I hate going to dealerships because they rape you financially…but a person has got to do what a person has to do.

I expect to be in this area for several days. I’m less than 150 miles from Albuquerque where I’m hoping Mary will be flying in to meet me up with me once again in about 2-3 weeks. So I’m kind of pacing myself for that event.
TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! MARY WROTE A MANY GREAT BLOGS…SO WHENEVER SHE PUBLISHED A BLOG POSTING THE SAME DAY THAT I DID…YOU WILL BE ABLE TO READ HER BLOG BY CLICKING THE BELOW LINK! DO IT NOW…!!!

Yesterday was sunny and 82 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 90 degrees.
Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…
