I Have A Visitor…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My scheduled departure date is Friday, February 13th.

Mary continues to be overwhelmed with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’ve come to Las Vegas, Nevada several times over the years and have quite thoroughly explored the area. Rather than go back to these various places and re-create the wheel, (unless I do something different and unusual) I’m electing to republish some of my earlier blog entries…or discuss a different topic.

My view to the eastern horizon here is blocked by RV’s and trees…so I can’t see the pre-sunrises like I could in Yuma, Arizona, However, yesterday morning I saw some pretty high clouds reflecting the upcoming sun…

At 1:00 PM, Mary’s oldest daughter, Kristanne came to visit me. She has lived in Henderson just south of Las Vegas for almost five years. She insisted on buying lunch and since she is not familiar with this part of Las Vegas, I suggested Mary’s and my favorite buffet place just a couple of miles away…The Golden Corral…

DSC04816

The place was really crowded on a Saturday afternoon, but we still enjoyed some good food. We enjoyed a very pleasant time and just before she left she gave me a Valentine’s gift…

In addition to being attractive like her mom…she is also very intelligent like her mom. Thanks, for coming by, Kristanne…I enjoyed our time together.

As an aside, when we left for the restaurant at 1:15, it was 76 degrees outside and 81 inside the motorhome. On February 7th, I actually ran the motorhome air conditioner until about 5:00 PM. Las Vegas has been in a stretch for several days now where the daily temperatures have been running 10-15 degrees above average. Just fine with me!  Although, yesterday was just a tad too warm for me. I’ve mentioned in other Blog entries that Mary calls me The Weather Wimp! When the temperature gets below 65 or above 75…I start to complain! Yesterday is a good example.  🙂

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a sunny/cloudy and 77 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 73 degrees.

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

A Brief Overview Of A Ramblin’ Mans Life…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My scheduled departure date is Friday, February 13th.

Mary continues to be overwhelmed with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’ve come to Las Vegas, Nevada several times over the years and have quite thoroughly explored the area. Rather than go back to these various places and re-create the wheel, (unless I do something different and unusual) I’m electing to republish some of my earlier blog entries…or discuss a different topic.

Yesterday I published a Blog entry about my son and the bad weather to which he was returning… http://wp.me/pDCku-bCP

It got me thinking about why I left the northeastern United States and continue my Ramblin’ Mans lifestyle. So here’s a brief recap of my almost 75 years of life and 50+ years of camping and RVing…starting at the beginning…

I never had a chance…by that I mean I was born December 5, 1940 in Gardner, Massachusetts. Right smack in the middle of the Sagittarius sign. If you study the character traits of that sign you will find that a primary trait is that they…Love To Travel!

img070a

I lived in Massachusetts until I went to US Navy Boot Camp late 1958.

Here’s a photo at age 18 just after arriving home from boot camp…

img102

Most of my 3.5 years in the US Navy was as a Radarman on the USS Boston CAG-1, the World’s first heavy guided missile cruiser…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Boston_%28CA-69%29

That’s when my traveling life really began. I made cruises to the North Atlantic, Mediterranean Sea and the Caribbean Sea visiting a number of different countries. The below photo was taken in Amsterdam, Holland for the cruise book in 1961 when I was 20 years old…

Sailor HJ Jaillet 1961

I began my RVing/Camping life in 1964 when I bought an old International bread truck and converted it into a camper. I had it painted a beautiful metallic green with golden scribe letters that said…The Weekend Wanderer. Unfortunately, no photos remain of that camper. I had it several years and really cannot remember quite when or to whom I eventually sold it. In 1970 I bought a motorcycle and it became my camper. The next photo is what it looked liked in 1977 went I took it to Newfoundland, Canada for a three-week vacation…

img197

I traveled extensively all over the east coast and went absolutely everywhere…going to the good places several times over. Needing new horizons I decided to move to the west coast (California). My motorcycle was in the moving van with my household furnishings. I drove in my 1977 Toyota Celica with my tent…

img122

It took me three months to make it to California. See the below image. Most folks would have gone more or less in a straight line (yellow line). But not me. Leaving northern New Jersey where I was living at the time in 1979, I drove to visit some good friends near Detroit, Michigan, then north into Canada to the head of the Canadian Rockies..Banff and Lake Louise. Then I stared zig-zaging south down the Rocky Mountain chain. Every time I found a route over the Rockies, I took it, then crossed at the next available crossover all the way south to the Grand Canyon (red line) and then into southern California…

I took a year off from work, then ended up taking a job near Olympia, Washington in 1980. By that time I had acquired a tent trailer, but that was not suitable in the wet northwest environment…so I bought a used 11 foot travel trailer which I had for several years. In 1988 I bought a new 18 foot travel trailer which I towed with a Chevy Suburban.

I traveled extensively in the Pacific Northwest. In 1995 as I was approaching the age of 55…I made a rather relatively quick decision to retire and begin the full-time RVing lifestyle and headed south for the winter. Since that time my primary goal has been to stay in temperatures from 65 to 75 degrees all year long, as much as possible. Mary calls me The Weather Wimp! When it gets over 75 or under 65…I start complaining!

The next photo is of my 18 foot travel trailer and Chevy Suburban on a beach in Baja, California Sur where I spent 6 months during the winter of 1998-99. The poor photo quality comes having the film developed in Mexico…

Can't get much closer to the water than that!

Christmas in Baja, Mexico…

My friends had motorhomes and a tow car so they could go 4-wheeling in the mountains. I was time for me to make a change in that direction. By that time I was reading all I could about Central America…knowing I just had to go there. I felt that there was a 50/50 chance the motorhome and tow car make not make it back from Central America…so in September 1999, I bought a 1983 23.5 foot Suncrest motorhome and a 1984 Ford Bronco II as a tow car. In the winter of 2000-01 I spent another six month Winter in Baja, Mexico.

In November, 2002 I made the final decision to go to Central America. I set aside more than a year for planning and departed on January 2, 2004 with a total of 11 rigs and 17 people…

#2

After 343 days and more than 16,000 miles (11,000+ on the motorhome and 5,000+ on the Bronco) …only two rigs and two people went the entire pre-planned route. All the others dropped out for various reasons…but all eventually returned to the United States safely.

We wandered a lot of back-country roads in Central America…

We crossed many bridges like this one during our trip.

The next photo taken on December 9, 2004 in Douglas, Arizona shows myself (right) and Bud Kuball safely arriving back in the United States…

#1156

Through a great coincidence…Bud lives here in Las Vegas and I’ll be visiting with him soon. In October, 2008 I met my now (part-time) traveling companion Mary Matzek and my life has not been the same since… 🙂 …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In July, 2009 we bought a new rig…a 2006 26 foot Fleetwood Terra Motorhome and 1986 Ford Bronco II tow car as seen in the heading of this Blog. Since 2008 we have wandered all over the United States making two circumnavigations (2010 and 2012-13).

In that time we’ve had some unique experiences. May 27th, 2012 we survived this terrible accident in Canyon de Chelly in remote northeastern Arizona where one person was killed and several other were severely injured. Mary and I still carry aches and pains from that experience…

DSC07201

In February 2013 we met the Mayor of Lake Charles, Louisiana while there for Mardi Gras. Mary and I are both of French heritage. We managed to find the French folks there and got an invite to ride on the Krewe de Cajun float during the Mardi Gras Parade. Instead of catching the beads…we were throwing them… 🙂

The below map identifies six extremities I have reached on the North American Continent. #1 by motorcycle, #2 by Toyota and #3, #4, #5 and #6 by motorhome. In case you are wondering why I’ve not done Alaska…it doesn’t call me.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS AND VIDEO.

My Son Performs In Las Vegas!

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My scheduled departure date is Friday, February 13th.

Mary continues to be overwhelmed with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’ve come to Las Vegas, Nevada several times over the years and have quite thoroughly explored the area. Rather than go back to these various places and re-create the wheel, (unless I do something different and unusual) I’m electing to republish some of my earlier blog entries…or discuss a different topic.

Five days ago I published a Blog entry about my son’s arrival here in las Vegas…http://wp.me/pDCku-bBT

His time here is the primary reason for my being in Las Vegas at this time. I last saw him in August, 2013 during my last circumnavigation of the United Sates (almost two years long and my sixth time around). I last saw him here in Las Vegas in February, 2011.

My only son Jim is now 50 years old. He’s been coming to Las Vegas for the annual World of Concrete Convention for better than 20 years. He was a featured speaker for about 10 of those years at the convention. He is currently the regional sales manager in the northeastern United States for a large concrete corporation.

During this visit he and I got to watch the Super Bowl together in his hotel suite. A nice happening!

In addition to his concrete career field, since a younger man in his late teens, he has become a base guitar player playing with several different bands over the years and playing at area county fairs and drinking establishments…Bars. 🙂 He also does lead and backup vocals.

He has been playing bass guitar for the Association Society of Concrete Contractors Band at this annual convention for about six years. This band only plays one evening a year…at the Kickoff Bash which happened last Monday evening. He emailed me this photo (not mine) that someone took of this group. He’s on the right playing the bass guitar…

unnamed1

Okay, he’s not a show headliner…his name is not on the marquee…but it still allows for pretty neat bragging rights! It’s not every Dad who can claim that his son has performed on the Vegas Strip! 🙂

In my year 2000 archives I found this photo of his annual July 4th Party,  in his backyard in Connecticut. He’s wearing a red shirt and playing his bass guitar…

img064

I’m not sure where he gets his musical talent from…certainly not me. A long time ago I had a guitar for about five years…and finally decided I have no musical talent and sold it hoping it would have a better life with a new owner.

Yesterday I drove him to the airport to catch his flight back home to sub-zero temperatures and 18 inches of snow…with another 18 inches expected next week. In addition to the excessive heat and humidity in the summer time, it’s another reason why I no longer live there! 🙂

The major downside of a Ramblin’ Mans life is not getting to see my family and my many friends on a regular and often basis. It’s just goes with the territory. Fortunately with today’s technology it’s easy to at least have somewhat regular communications.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

The Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas Sign…
(First published February 13, 2011)

Two days ago when Mary and I visited the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino, we drove about one mile further south on Las Vegas Boulevard, also known as “The Strip”, in order to view this famous sign…

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…

This is what to sign says as you are leaving town…

This sign has been welcoming visitors to Las Vegas, Nevada since 1959. There is also an identical sign on the Boulder Highway as you enter the area from the south.

Here’s a vegas.com website link about the sign…

Thousand Trails RV Resort – Las Vegas, Nevada

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My scheduled departure date is Friday, February 13th.

Mary continues to be overwhelmed with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

Mary and I are members in Thousand Trails RV Resorts…the largest RV Resort system in the nation…with over 80 locations. Because they are clean and safe places to park…we stay there whenever they are nearby to an area we want to visit…such as Las Vegas. Today I’m showing two Google Earth images. The first shows the location and its relativity to The Strip six miles distant…

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…
