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.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

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 Thousand Trails RV resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.
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.
Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 85 miles from Superior, Wisconsin to Grand Rapids, Minnesota.
We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.
The day started with a beautiful sunrise at Superior, Wisconsin as seen from my dinette seat in the motorhome…
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…
Being a Labor Day Weekend Saturday, the traffic along Route 2 was heavier than usual…
We wanted to park in the center of Grand Rapids, but they do not allow overnight parking on any city streets. So, being a Wells Fargo customer, I asked the manager if we could park in his lot as he was closing at noon and he said okay…
Here’s the usual dinette window photo…not much to look at…but it’s free!!!
Looking towards the rear of the motorhome a flag is located over the rear entrance to the American Legion…
Looking forward the building on the left of the alley is the backside of the VFW…
While Mary wandered through some of the local shops, I spent the afternoon reading.
To leave, I have to maneuver the motorhome through this alley. If I coat the sides of the motorhome with Vaseline, I might just make it…
Too hot again yesterday with temperatures in the mid 80’s and 72% humidity.
A late afternoon thunderstorm lowered the temperature somewhat. At 5:30 AM this morning it was 64 degrees with 76% humidity. I received a comment that one person is getting tired of my use of the word YUK to describe my feelings about the weather. How about YUKITTY? 🙂
As a side note…Grand Rapids is the birthplace of Judy Garland. If you have forgotten who she was…here’s a Wikipedia link to refresh your memory… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_garland
We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.
Enjoying friendly VFW Posts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…
On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. 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, 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!
