East Bridgewater, Massachusetts Day 2 (GA561)

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 26, 2013…

 

 

 

 

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…

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 on July 30th.

 

 

The high temperature yesterday was only 82 degrees in the shade. However, the humidity was still in the mid 70%…another miserable day for me!

 

 

Here in New England, once you get off of the Interstate Highways (which I hate to drive on), the roads get narrow and jammed with traffic which makes for slow going…

So, why am I here? Well, my cousin Mike DiPaola works here and because he knew I was in the area, has invited me to do a seminar about Full-Time RVing which I’ll do this Saturday at 10:00 AM.

 

 

In other news…

Finally a break in the hot and humid weather! A forecasted three-day cold front has arrived! At 5:00 AM this morning it was only 65 degrees with 65% humidity. Yes! However on Sunday it appears the weather will go back into the mid to upper 80’s with high humidity once again. YUK AGAIN!

Gateway To Cape Cod Campground, Rochester, Massachusetts – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 25 miles from East Bridgewater to Rochester, Massachusetts to the Gateway to Cape Cod Campground. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails RV Resort system of which Mary and I are members.

This location marks the furthest point east the motorhome will travel during my 2011-2013 two-year circumnavigation of the United States. Mary and I thoroughly visited Cape Cod in 2010. I plan to depart here tomorrow.

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.

The weather continues lousy in New England. While the high temperatures have dissipated for the moment…the horrible humidity remains. This morning at 5:30 AM it was 90%, It’s raining right now with more on the way/ YUK!

In the below Google Earth image my location is shown by the yellow dot…

Regarding yesterday’s Full-Time RVing Seminar… Camping USA told me they have not held a seminar in mid-summer before. Because most folks were out RVing we only had 18 attending…

006

My cousin Mike took the above photo with my camera. My cousin Suzie who I have not seen for many years even made it with her husband, Lenny. My camera some how accidentally got in the watercolor mode…sorry about the harsh colors…

034

Despite the smaller turnout folks seemed to really enjoy it. I got this nice comment from my cousin Mike…

Thanks a lot for a very informative seminar. Nice to have an experienced RV’er with your 49 years of RV’ing, including 18 years as a full timer, offering advice. Well Done!! Happy Camping. Response was overwhelming for this seminar.
We will be talking about it for some time. Stay Safe!

Camping USA did a nice job washing the motorhome in the watercolor mode…

033

So, here’s my new camping spot…

036

And the usual dinette window photo…

With the horrible humidity, I had the A/C going immediately upon arrival.

Camping USA, East Bridgewater, Massachusetts – Day 3

The motorhome is parked at Camping USA in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts where today 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.

Another lousy day of weather yesterday. High of 67 degrees with 98% humidity while it rained for most of the day.

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…

I thought I’d show you a few photos of Camping USA…

In conjunction with my seminar, they are having a Christmas-In-July Sale and offering a substantial discount on parts for today only…

While here, I’ve had little opportunity to talk with my cousin Mike as he always has a telephone stuck in his ear. I’m told they are have the busiest summer ever…

While here, I had the technician clean and adjust the flame burners on the hot water heater…

and the refrigerator…

011In both units there was a layer of dust accumulated from some of the desert sand storms I’ve experienced id the southwest.

Presenting RVing seminars is another joy in my life of a full-time RVer!
