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.
The motorhome is parked at Camping USA in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts where tomorrow I’ll be presenting a seminar on full-time RVing. I plan to depart after the seminar.
Mary is back at her home in California tending to some personal business. She has made her plane reservations and will fly to meet me in Boston, Massachusetts next Tuesday.
For the longest time it’s been too hot…now it’s too cold! The day before it was 83 degrees with 90+ percent humidity. Yesterday the high temperature was only 63 degrees with 80+ percent humidity. Seems like just about all of 2013 has been this way. How nice it would be to have a partly cloudy/sunny day, temperature at 69 degrees, low humidity with a gentle breeze!
When I arose at 5:00 AM this morning it was 62 degrees with 98% humidity. YUK!
Yesterday, the folks at Camping USA told me the oldest post office in the United States was just up the street…less than a five-minute walk…so I went to investigate. Talking to Bill Flynn, the Postmaster and only employee (who did not want to be in any photos) was that this is the oldest United States Post Office in a continuous location. It was established at this location in 1861. Elmwood is a part of today’s East Bridgewater…
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…
The building was built by Levi Churchill to be a general store in 1829. Levi resided on the second floor…
The Post Office is in a small corner of the building and is located behind the flag. Because of the poor economy, the remainder of the building is empty…
According to Bill, the darker post office boxes were installed in 1861…
Bill showed me this old photo taken long before the handicap access was required. He believes the photo to be 60-70 years old…
