A Walk And Then Shop

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s rental property in Wimer, Oregon.

Change of plans…

2015 is proving to be an overwhelming year for Mary. Her to-do plate is overflowing. Among the many things requiring her time is the completion of construction of a rental property in Wimer (13 miles north of Rogue River), Oregon.

Mary arrived here two days ago here for a few days of hands-on involvement, then will return home to continue dealing with her over-flowing plate.

I’m here until Wednesday after which I’ll head for the Oregon Pacific Coast for about a six-week visit and then into the State of Washington for the summer. My primary goals are to stay in 65-75 degree weather and take maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership.

We are now hoping for Mary to rejoin me on the road sometime after July 4th. Our planned trip to Yellowstone National Park and Wyoming will hopefully now occur after the Labor Day holiday.

Yesterday…in the morning we took about a 30 minute walk around some of Mary’s 7 acres. Here are a few photos that I took…

Mary has several hundred feet of Evans Creek waterfront, which is a tributary of the Rogue River, flowing through her property…





















After the walk we drove 32 miles to Home Depot in Medford, Oregon. We spent four hours shopping for light fixtures and hardwood flooring. Because of my USS Boston cap we got her a 10% military discount which amounted to nearly $500. See Mary smile 🙂

We hauled the lighting fixtures back in Mary’s car…flooring to be delivered in a week…





We’ll head back to Home Depot for more shopping later this morning.

More Monterey, California photos soon.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Yesterday was cloudy and 73 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy with showers and 60 degrees.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

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!
