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.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click here
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort in Manteca, California. I’m scheduled to depart here April 17th.
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.
Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 82 miles from Chinook to Chester, Montana.
We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.
More of very light traffic…

About three weeks ago I identified I was having a problem with a dead battery in my towed Ford Bronco II. About two weeks ago I reported the problem had been fixed. Yesterday morning I discovered the Bronco battery was once again dead. The problem remains. While Mary did laundry yesterday I spent a couple of hours in the hot, broiling sun attempting to fix the problem. Almost, but not quite. Once again, beyond my expertise. I have a 10:00 AM appointment with a shop about 45 miles further down the road. Chester is a very small town with no auto electric repair services. While aggravating, on the road problems are usually resolved with some time and money. Fortunately, We have both.
We parked at the Chester City Park overnight…
Here’s the usual dinette window photo…
Yesterday was another lousy weather day. 83 degrees, sunny with high humidity. Next two-day forecast is 84 then 86 degrees! Yuckkitty!
We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.
Enjoying parking in city parks is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

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…
