Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 29 (GA541)

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 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

 

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 July 6, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California readying for a family reunion. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

In three recent days, I introduced to you the Village of Essex less than five miles from my son’s home.

 

 

In those entries I’ve started showing images taken at the Connecticut River Museum located in Essex. In the next several Blog entries I’ll share more photos with you.

 

 

Today I want to discuss the Connecticut River itself…

 

 

At 407 miles, it’s the longest river in New England. Starting at the New Hampshire/Canada border it flows into Long Island Sound. You can read all about the Connecticut River by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Essex is only six miles from the sound. The below image marks Essex with the yellow arrow. The upper bridge is Interstate Highway 95 and the lower bridge is a long-standing railroad bridge…

Mary is back at  her home in California readying for a family reunion. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

Yesterday I braved the morning heat and humidity to walk down the hill the about 1/2 mile to watch the Ivoryton July 4th Parade. Ivoryton has a population of 2,864. The combined population of the Villages of Essex, Centerbrook and Ivoryton is about 6,500…

After the parade I had to walk the about 1/2 mile back up the hill to my son’s home. By time I arrived I was really huffing and puffing. The heat and humidity is really getting to me this year. I’m in the “M” in humid in the below image…

650x366_07031902_hd21

 

 

Upon arrival I fired up the motorhome’s air-conditioning system. While waiting for it to cool down I went into my son’s home for about a half-hour during which time I told him I expect this will be my last RV trip to the east coast because I can no longer handle the excessive heat and humidity.

 

 

Shortly thereafter he and his family went to visit his wife’s family and I spent the day hibernating in the air-conditioned motorhome reading and watching a movie. More heat and humidity is in the forecast. At 6:00 AM this morning it was 78 degrees with 90% humidity! YUK!

 

 

Enjoying parades is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

It has another claim to fame…

 

 

Essex is one of the few American towns to ever be attacked by a foreign power; this occurred on April 8, 1814, and the economic losses were among the largest sustained by the United States during the War of 1812. Twenty eight vessels, with a total value estimated to be close to $200,000 (at a time when a very large two-story home in Essex would have been worth no more than $1,000), were destroyed by the British. One historian has called it the “Pearl Harbor” of that war.

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!

Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 23 (GA535)

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 Palm Desert, California. I’ll depart from 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 June 30, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California readying for a family reunion. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

My Verizon account recycles on July 5th and I’m closing in on my GB limit so photos will be few until then.

 

 

This past Friday made three weeks since I arrived and time to dump waste tanks and refill the fresh water tank. RVing in the east is not as friendly as the west. Once you cross the Mississippi River it gets much more populated, the roads get narrower and there are many more vehicles to contend with. Another item is fewer convenient RV dump stations. Here in my son’s area I have to go to the Deep River Sewerage Treatment Plant to dump the waste tanks….

Enjoying a motorhome with empty waste tanks is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
