Chehalis To Lacey, Washington

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

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 49 miles from Chehalis to Lacey, Washington.

 

Upon arrival, I parked at Cabela’s Sporting Goods. It’s a nice clean, safe and quiet location. I’ll leave here tomorrow morning after visiting friends in the area.

I Visit A Blank Rock… (GA96)

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 Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I’ll depart here later this morning.

 

 

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.

 

 

 

This entry was posted April 30, 2012…

 

 

 

 

I’m currently in Albuquerque, New Mexico awaiting Mary’s arrival on Tuesday, May 1st.

 

 

Prior to my arrival about a week ago, I did my usual Internet search of places I might like to visit while in an area. I’m particularly drawn to unique places and things.

 

 

Having lived in Washington State…the location of Microsoft headquarters…and being somewhat of a computer nerd…this thing sounded like a quick and easy thing to do. On my first day in Albuquerque while driving around scoping out the city…I found myself going right by the location.

 

 

But I already knew it was gone…recently stolen! You can read all about the theft by clicking this link…

Here’s what was stolen…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But I still wanted to see the location of this unique place so I stopped by 199 California Street and took this photo…

 

 

You can see where the plaque used to be. Nonetheless…it was interesting to see the place where Microsoft began.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a 1978 photo of the Microsoft staff. Would you have invested your money with this group???

 

 

The photo comes from the below link about the history of Microsoft…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Microsoft

 

 

As a full-time RVer I enjoy visiting historic places.

 

 

 

 

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…!!!

Mary did not post a blog this date.

 

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Yesterday was mostly cloudy and 72 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 66 degrees.

A few days ago I went to the above named museum. During my working years, I was associated with the Nuclear industry for 20+ years.

 

 

Here’s the museum’s official website link…

Here are some photos that I took…

 

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the front plaza is a Terrier Missile launcher. The U.S.S. Boston CAG-1, was the World’s first-guided missile heavy cruiser and the first ship to carry the Terrier Missiles. I was stationed aboard the Boston from 1959 to 1962 as a Radarman.

 

 

I found this 50 second YouTube video of a news report of the U.S.S. Boston firing its missiles. Click this link to see the video…

In the below photo are replicas of two famous atomic bombs. The green one was known as Little Boy and dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. The yellow one was known as Fat Man and dropped on Nagasaki, Japan on August 9, 1945…

For a number of years I was an Industrial Radiographer (an X-Ray technician using radioactive isotopes as the radiation source). The below photo shows a meter similar to the ones I used to use to monitor the associated radiation levels of our work area…

 

 

 

 

 

This next photo is a model of a commercial reactor used as a power source to generate electricity…

 

 

 

 

 

The below photo is a diagram of the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Station in Maryland. It’s one of the seven Nuclear reactors on which I worked during their construction…

In my many years on the road I’ve managed to get to a few garages along the way…but none as clean as this one.

 

 

My first stop when arriving in Albuquerque, New Mexico a few days ago was at Advantage Automotive. The motorhome had an ABS light that would not go out after starting the engine and this is the only Workhorse Chassis repair facility in the Albuquerque area.

 

 

Not only is the shop clean, but they are also very knowledgeable and nice people. A rare combination to find in an automotive garage.

 

 

Let me show you this place…

James, the owner, worked on the motorhome personally…

 

 

 

 

 

Sharon and her husband John ( not shown) will greet you when you arrive…

 

 

According to their business card…

Complete Auto, R.V. & Truck repair. Specializing in Air Conditioning, Electrical and fuel Injection Systems Diagnosis and Repair.

 

 

They are conveniently located at 511 Piasano, NE, near the intersection of I-40 and Juan Tabo. Their telephone number is (505) 298-4996.

 

 

Here’s their website link…

If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you’ll know I rarely recommend anything. I only do it when someone or something is exceptional.

 

 

If you should happen to need servicing on your vehicles while in the Albuquerque area…I highly recommend them to you!

A few days ago I passed through Belen, New Mexico. I had read that everything in this city revolved around the railroad. So I parked the motorhome nearby to the Harvey House Museum in the old station. There are actually three stories here…the railroad, the Harvey House and the Belen Model Railroad Club. The city name in Spanish means Bethlehem.

 

 

Rather than me try to explain the history here…it’s easier if you will click the below links and read for yourself…

http://www.donaanacountyhistsoc.org/HistoricalReview/ThreeHistoricalReview2011.pdf

http://www.belenharveyhouse.com/BMRC/index.htm

 

 

Once again I was faced with difficult photography conditions…rather dimly lit interiors and brilliant sunshine showing through the large windows in the background. Nonetheless, forward I went…

 

 

Shortly after my arrival I was fortunate enough to meet up with Maurine McMillan. She’s been at the museum for 20 years and now serves as the Director of a staff of 14 volunteers…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She was very knowledgeable and told me all about the history of the railroad, station, museum, the Harvey Girls and the Belen Model Railroad Club.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some photos that I took while there…

There’s no way that I can show in the above photos the details of the model railroad club’s layout. Only an in-person visit can allow for the full appreciation of their efforts.

 

 

To appreciate how big the railroad is here, I’m presenting three Google Earth images.

 

 

 

 

 

The first one show the full railroad yard and how it relates to the city…

 

 

 

 

 

Then a closer look. Can you count how many sets of railroad tracks there are? I can’t…

 

 

 

 

 

And then a view looking down on the building that serves as a station, museum and home to the Belen Model Railroad Club…

 

 

Another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle is visiting unique and interesting places. Belen certainly qualifies for that category!

A few days ago while I was in Socorro, New Mexico I visited this 57,331 acre wildlife refuge which straddles the Rio Grande River. Bosque del Apache in Spanish means woods of the Apache.

 

 

Trying to photograph wildlife without a long-range telephoto lens or a tripod is difficult at best.  Combined with a brilliant overhead sun making the seeing of the LCD screen on my camera added to the difficulty. No wonder they are called point and shoot cameras.  Nonetheless I did mange to get some half-way decent photos…

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!
