Yesterday I drove the motorhome 117 miles from Chehalis, Washington to Woodburn, Oregon. I’ll depart here later this morning.

 

Upon arrival I parked at the very friendly Eagles Club #3284 in Woodburn, Oregon. I’ve parked here several times in the past. They have a 30 amp electrical hookup.

Retire With Full Pay For Life…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I’ll depart here later this morning.

 

 

I received this in an email yesterday and agreed with it so much, I decided to put it as a blog post….

 

 

 

 

RETIRE WITH FULL PAY FOR LIFE

 

So many members of Congress are retiring in hopes of “locking-in” their future retirement payments. Currently their monthly retirement checks are equal to their monthly salaries. They hope to freeze their retirement as it stands. I’m with Trump on this one. Trump is asking everyone to forward this Email to a minimum of 20 people and to ask each one of them to do likewise.

This makes too much sense not to be passed on. In 3 days, most people in the United States will have the message.

 

This is why the idea should be passed around, regardless of Political Party

 

 

Trump Rule’s Congressional Reform Act Of 2018: 

1– No Tenure / No Pension.  A Congressman / Woman, collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.  No more perks go with them.

2– Congressman / Woman ( past, present & future ) participate in social security.  All funds in the Congressional Retirement Fund move to the Social Security System immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security System, and Congress participates with the American People.  It may not be used for any other purposes.

3– Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4– Congress will no longer vote themselves pay increases. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%

5– Congress loses their current Healthcare System and participates in the same Healthcare System as the American people.

6– Congress must equally abide by all the laws, they impose on the American people.

7– All contracts with past and present Congressman / Woman are void The American people did not make these contracts with Congressmen / Women.

The Congress made all these contracts for themselves.  Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their terms, then go home and go back to work, and not get all kinds of freebies!

No wonder they’re fighting THIS TOOTH AND NAIL!

If each person contacts a minimum of 20 people,  It will only take 3 days for most people in the United States to receive this message. It’s time for us to take action now!

 

 

How do you feel about this topic????

 

 

 

If you agree with this message, I encourage you to share it with your friends.

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the message.

 

 

 

I hope you will enjoy the future blog postings.

Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 69 degrees.

Just for the record… I do not purposefully hunt these types of videos. They randomly present themselves as I watch general YouTube videos while eating my breakfast.

 

This is the 16th video which I guess is becoming a series about how politicians are destroying our beautiful country. In this case… politicians in general.

 

The video published four days ago runs 44:29 minutes.

 

I watched it all. If you miss Paul Harvey like millions of others, including myself, you will watch the entire video. Is he the last real news commentator that would could believe was telling us the truth? Today’s world sure could use another Paul Harvey!!!!

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 135 miles from Monroe to Chehalis, Washington. I’m scheduled to depart here September 20th.

 

The drive included lots of traffic, lots of 18 wheelers, lots of rain, lots of wind and lots of idiotic drivers.

All in all, a tiring drive!

 

I’m at Thousand Trails Chehalis RV Resort.

 

I’ve been here several times before.

Here’s the ranger station and check-in…

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 135 miles from Chehalis to Monroe, Washington.

 

Upon arrival I parked the motorhome at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort along the bank of the Skykomish River. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here.

Corpus Christi, Texas Day 1 (GA367)

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.
I’m currently in my 23rd 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.

 

 

 

 

This entry was posted January 14, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 50 miles from Kingsville to Corpus Christi, Texas.

 

 

We are parked at the Eagles Club #2249 where we spent the night.

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

011

 

 

When we arrived at 11:30 AM, we thought we’d get settled in and then drive around a bit to get the lay of the land. However fate had different plans for us. If you look closely at the above photo on the far right in the background you will see a trailer from which emerged Larry Mills. Larry informed us he was the security guard, trustee, bar manager and additional host of other titles. He has been a member of this club since 1982, winters here and summers at his home in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

 

 

 

 

 

The Eagles Club is closed on the weekend, but Larry asked if we’d like a tour of the facilities and of course we said yes. As he opened the door, he asked “Would you like a beer?” Mary and I do not usually drink at noontime, but soon found ourselves sitting at the bar…

010

 

 

At the bar, Larry drink his Miller Lite while Mary and I drank our normal drinks…mine being Canadian Mist and water.

 

 

Larry proved quickly proved to be a very congenial and very funny fellow and we were soon laughing up a storm. To give you an example of his humor, when I asked if he was married, he replied…”No, I’m divorced…my wife ran off with the gardener and I thought she didn’t like Chinese food.” Think about it for a moment…

 

 

 

 

 

This is the lounge as seen from the bar…

007

 

 

 

 

 

Larry told us the hall has one of the largest dance floors in South Texas…

008

 

 

Since Mary and Larry are both originally from Michigan, that only added to the camaraderie. To make a long story short, we sat and chatted with much laughter for the next two hours…after which I was no longer in condition to drive, so we adorned to the motorhome for the remainder of the day.

 

 

 

 

 

This Eagles Club actually has provisions for RV’s including 30 amp electrical service, so we are very comfortable here and will likely stay for 3-4 days. Here’s the view from the dinette window with Larry’s trailer in the background…

Enjoying meeting interesting and funny people is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!!!
