Yesterday I drove the motorhome 139 miles from Seaside, Oregon to Lacey, Washington.

 

Upon arrival, I parked at Cabela’s Sporting Goods. It’s a nice clean, safe and quiet location. I’ll leave here tomorrow morning after visiting friends in the area today.

Lacey, Washington – Day 2 (GA610)

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

The motorhome is parked in Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart here June 2nd.

 

 

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 October 4, 2013…

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #94 in Lacey, Washington. I’ll depart later this morning.

 

I lived in this area from 1980 – 1995. Yesterday I visited with some old friends.

 

I enjoy stopping in unannounced…you know sort of a surprise…just walk through the door and say hello…

 

First was Keri Kauffman who was my hair stylist for many years…

Sometimes they surprise me by not being where they are supposed to be. At Public Access Thurston County Television (from 1992 – 1995, I hosted 95 TV programs here), I stopped to see Deb Vinsel the manager there for many years. She wasn’t there because she had a doctor’s appointment and they were not quite sure of her return time. So I passed about one hour with Robert (center) and Vicki (right) whom I had not met before. They were intrigued with my lifestyle, Blog and YouTube Videos. If you would like to see my YouTube Videos, click this link… http://www.youtube.com/user/JimJ1579/videos

 

 

 

 

 

Susan Willis, (left) whom I knew back then came in about 10 minutes before I departed…

I had said my good-byes and actually reached my Bronco, when I heard HEY!!! It was Deb, so I got to chat with her for a few minutes…

DSC07155

 

 

Which made me late leaving for my lunch appointment with my ex-attorney and friend Shawn Newman. He was running on a tight schedule and combined with a mix-up on my part about the location of the restaurant where we were supposed to meet for lunch, I missed him by five minutes. I did not have his cell phone number, so back I went to the motorhome for lunch. Shawn and I chatted later in the day…see you next year!

 

 

 

 

 

Larry Seaberg stopped in at 1:00 PM. His wife Jan had other things to attend to…

At 2:30 PM, I drove the Bronco the about the two miles to visit with Jim and Joan Belluomini. They are now living in their 22 foot RoadTrek RV full-time and have been RVing since 1958…

DSC07160

 

It was nice to see my old friends all apparently well and doing well!

 

Yesterday’s high temperature was 58 degrees with partly cloudy/sunny skies. At 5:00 AM when I arose thus morning it was 40 degrees! Brrr! Time to put on some miles heading south!

 

Last night I watched another old movie from the 1930’s. This time it was 1932 – Tarzan, The Ape Man starring Johnny Weissmuller. Another classic!

 

Enjoying old friends is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

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 August 16, 2013…

 

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 105 miles from Norwalk, Ohio to Grosse Ile, Michigan. Grosse Ile is an island located in the Detroit River about 20 miles south of Detroit. We are here to visit with my long-time friends Art & Sue Lambart. It was Art who got me started in photography back in 1974. Here are some photos that I took…

Yesterday morning I discovered the battery in the Bronco had gone dead. A cable between the motorhome does a number of jobs including keeping the Bronco battery charged…

012

 

 

 

 

 

I spent about three hours trying to resolve the problem to no avail. I have had no training for automotive electrics, so this morning I’ll take it to a shop recommended by my friend Art. Once the problem is resolved we’ll continue our journey, now heading north towards the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where Mary lived for the first 14 years of her life. We’ll visit some of her relatives and friends while there.

 

 

 

 

 

Here we are reliving the old days. Mary is enjoying a sip of Art’s 40-year-old Pinch Scotch…

Art has been a competition shooter for most of his life and once was the Michigan State Champion for hand guns. He showed us a recent target shot with one hand at 50 yards with a 45 caliber hand gun. Remarkable shooting for a 70-year-old man…

Oakland, New Jersey Day 1 (GA508)

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I’m planning to depart November 26th.

 

 

 

 

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 1, 2013…

 

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 100 miles from Allentown, Pennsylvania to Oakland, New Jersey. Most of the drive was on Interstate Highways 78 and 287 with LOTS of traffic and MANY 18-wheelers. While the speed limit was 65…most vehicles zipped along at 75-80 miles per hour. It’s a downright dangerous situation and very stressful driving. Unfortunately when you are in this part of the United States the other roadways are very narrow, congested and very slow going. My driving technique is to stay to the right, maintain about a 60 mile per hour speed and hopefully avoid any problems.

 

 

We are parked in a beautiful park-like setting at Elks Club #2167. Here are some of the photos that I took when we arrived in the blistering heat…

We have a peek-a-boo view of the Ramapo River through the windshield…

and the usual dinette window photo…

About 4:00 PM we were joined by my friends Jim and Ginny Palumbo whom I have known since 1976. They live about a five-minute drive away. We went to an Italian restaurant for supper…

011

 

 

 

 

 

Where I had pasta and meatballs. One good thing about being back East is one can get delicious Italian food…

013

 

 

 

 

 

About 5:30 this morning I took a walk around the grounds…while it was cooler..and took a few more photos. Mary really likes this place. This Elks Club is essentially closed for lack of membership. That’s really sad because it’s such a pretty place. So, it’s also quite quiet and peaceful here considering we are in such a heavily populated area.

Mary flies out of Newark Airport on Wednesday to return home to California for about a six-week stay and I’ll depart Thursday morning heading for my son’s home in Connecticut. Mary has a tentative return-to-me date of July 16th.

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday was another scorcher and it’s supposed to that way again today. Here’s a photo I took at 5:30 AM yesterday morning…

Here’s an image from accuweather.com showing the heat and unhealthy air quality advisory for today. I’ve placed a red dot at our approximate location in Oakland, New Jersey…

And we are still about three weeks away from the official start of Summer!

 

 

Like yesterday, I hereby declare YUK, YUK and YUK for the current weather!

Heron Lake State Park – New Mexico Day 42 (GA190)

 Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’m currently scheduled to depart here October 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.

 

 

In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!</div?

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

This entry was posted July 31, 2012…
The motorhome is still parked at Heron Lake State Park about 20 miles south of Chama, New Mexico while I am recovering from my May 27th accident.

 

 

More good news regarding my recovery. Yesterday, for the second day in a row, I managed to go without my elastic chest bandage for six hours. I continue taking Ibuprofen, icing my ribcage area 2-3 times a day. The doctors told me to expect 6-12 weeks for recovery. The accident occurred nine weeks and two days ago. Can you tell I’m ready for the recovery to be finished and be back on the road again?

 

 

A few days ago my friend Randy Vining arrived with a mini-caravan of four RV’s. Because one of the rigs is a 40 footer, they parked at a campground about three miles from mine. At 7:00 PM last evening, I went over to participate in a birthday celebration for Randy. In addition to his travel companions, we were joined by three volunteer staff people from the state park. Randy is a philosopher, poet and gadabout.

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

Their camping area…

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve known Randy since 1997. All the others there have known him less than a year. In addition I’m the only that has been to his hometown, a small hamlet named Sonheimer in very northeast Louisiana…

 

 

 

 

 

Laurie, a talented musician and songwriter gave us a mini-concert…

 

 

 

 

 

Randy said we all had to tell when we met him for the first time…

 

 

 

 

 

Laurie wrote a song specifically for Randy’s birthday. Here Randy holds the lyrics for her as she sings…

 

 

 

 

 

Randy wouldn’t tell us his age, but we’re guessing he’s at least 21…

 

 

 

 

 

The celebration included cake and ice cream and one large candle…

 

 

 

 

 

Here Randy shows a gift of a crystal from his friend Ginger…

 

 

 

 

 

Being an ex-Baptist Minister, Randy has an effervescent personality and he’s usually at the center of things. It takes little coaxing to get him to stand and an enthusiastically present one of his poems…

 

 

It was an enjoyable two-hour gathering on a delightful summer evening.

 

 

Meeting and enjoying new people along the road of life is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
