Fort Pulaski – Cockspur Island, Georgia

The motorhome is parked the Thousand Trails RV Resort located in Bow, a few miles north of Burlington, Washington. I’ve been here several times in past years. I’ll depart here tomorrow.

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. Recently we acknowledged that her meeting up with me in September, just is not going to happen.   😦

I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in November. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!

On July 12th, I blogged about the great Civil War photo book I found in a Goodwill store. If you missed that posting, here’s the link…http://wp.me/pDCku-ckv

I’ve really enjoyed reading this book reminding me of the many places I’ve been that played an important role in the Civil War. I’ve decided it would be a great time to re-visit some of the places and share them with you. If I’m writing a blog entry about a place, means I read about it in this great Civil War photo book with nearly 4,000 photographs and I have been there! I’ll continue these Blog postings until I’ve until I do them all in my collection.

Today’s subject: Andersonville National Historic Site – Georgia…

If you do not know the story of Andersonville…you need to click the below links. It was a horrible place and I remember vividly my visit there as the most emotional-raising place I have ever visited, including Pearl Harbor! At least at Pearl Harbor, the 2,896 deaths were during battle. More than 13,000 died at Andersonville…while prisoners of war!

Even as I write this…I feel those emotions returning inside me.

America The Beautiful

The terrible accident we survived happened five months ago today, May 27th.

About 10 days ago I got to feeling well enough to finally stop wearing my elastic chest bandage, taking ibuprofen and icing my chest twice daily. My right rib cage remains slightly swollen and somewhat tender to the touch. I need to maintain a constant  awareness not to physically over exert myself. I remain with a constant mild burning sensation in my right rib cage area. I’m wondering when, if ever, it will finally leave me.

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues. Some believed to be related to after effects of the accident.

If you missed the Blog entry about the accident, here’s the link. If you want to understand the full scope of the accident you’ll need to read the Blog entries for the following several days…

In the meantime, I’m in my second day here at Sumner Lake State Park in New Mexico.

We have a brief cold front moving though the area. Yesterday’s high temperature was only 48 degrees so I stayed inside most of the day playing with the computer and came up with this 1:58 minute video. It was 30 degrees at 5:00 AM this morning.

The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. 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 and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine.

Summerton, South Carolina

Jim says:

Yesterday I drove about 150 miles from Statesboro, Georgia to my friend’s Bob and Judy’s in Summerton, South Carolina. To testify as to the back roads on which I drove during the last three days…in over 500 miles I did not see a WalMart…how about that?

Picture
I drove yesterday’s about 150 miles all on U.S. Highway 301.

Here I am safely parked in Bob and Judy”s yard.

I’m plugged into electricity and expect to be here another week. Weather today was lower 80’s, overcast, light rain and lower humidity. The Weather Wimp (that’s me) was a lot happier than yesterday.

Statesboro, Georgia

Jim says:

Sunny weather, good roads with little traffic, great music, plus I was in the mood to drive…so I cranked out 250 miles yesterday and arrived safely in Statesboro, Georgia. A lot of miles for me to drive in one day. The only option was to stop and bake in the 90 degree with 80% humidity. The Weather Wimp (that’s me) says “YUK”.

Here’s some photos from yesterday’s travels…

I’ve got about 150 miles to go to get to my next destination of Summerton, South Carolina which I expect to do today.
