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 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 July 23, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #191 in Sudbury, Massachusetts. I expect to depart here tomorrow.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California tending to some personal business. She has made her plane reservations and will fly to meet me in Boston, Massachusetts on July 30th.

 

 

The heat wave is supposed to be over but you cannot prove it by me. Yesterday was 89 degrees in the shade with 50% humidity. I ran the motorhome air-conditioner from about 1:00 – 9:00 PM.

 

 

Yesterday I visited the Minute Man National Park…in five stops. This park commemorates the opening battles of the American Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775. To refresh your memory of the events occurring on that date, I recommend you click this link… http://www.battleroad.org/history.html

 

 

I drove the Bronco the about 15 miles to the first stop which was at the headquarters of the park located in Lincoln, situated between Lexington and Concord. I viewed an excellent 25 minute multimedia presentation about the fateful day that began an eight-year war resulting in the birth of a new nation. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Then I drove about three miles east to the Lexington Green. No one knows who fired the shot where the first blood of the war resulted…

Then about four miles back west to the Paul Revere capture site. You can read the words of all three markers by clicking this link… http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WMA88_Paul_Revere_Capture_Site

This is the actual North Great Road also known as the Battle Road Trail, on which the British Troops and Patriot Minute Men walked upon. Note the concrete marker on the right…

036

 

 

 

 

 

Now barely readable because of being worn by the elements over the years…it reads…Boston Harbor 14M (meaning miles)…

037

049

 

 

 

 

 

Then about four more miles west to the final stop of the North Bridge. It was here the Patriots repulsed the British Troops and fired “the shot heard around the world”. The British advanced the bridge from this side of the Concord River, The Patriots were waiting for them on the other side of the bridge…

The park does a great job in presenting the details of April 19, 1775. It was a very emotional visit to walk on such hallowed ground. Here’s the Minute Man National Park official website link… http://www.nps.gov/mima/index.htm

 

 

Enjoying historical places is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

 

 

After sitting so long at my son’s home and then waiting out the week-long heat wave…I had grown tired of sitting around. It’s nice to be back on the move once again!

Even though it is not racing season, there are still horses here which we got to see yesterday morning. I took so many photos that I’ve decided to show the photos taken in the stable area today. Race track photos can be seen tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

The day started with a delightful sunrise…

The people walking the horses to cool down after an exercise run are called Hotwalkers. The people taking care of the horses are called Grooms. As a teenager back in New England I did both jobs over a three-year period part-time at Suffolk Downs in Massachusetts, Rockingham Park in New Hampshire and Lincoln Downs in Rhode Island. Wandering around the stable area brought back lots of long-ago memories…

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 60 miles from Bardstown to Lexington, Kentucky. We drove about 50 of those miles on the Blue Grass Parkway which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Along the way we stopped to get a first-hand look at one of Kentucky’s most famous products…Bourbon Whiskey. We visited the Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg. You can read about this place by clicking their official website link…

Mary joined us in the tasting room. I tasted none because I was driving and did not want it on my breath. Plus I didn’t want to hurt anyones feelings, but I really do not care for Bourbon. I’m a Canadian Mist man myself.  🙂

Back on the road we ended up at a place where we can get an up-close-and-personal look at another of Kentucky products…Horses! We are parked at the Keeneland Horse Racing Track at Lexington…

Here’s the dinette window photo…

Even though it is not racing season, there are still horses here which we’ll get to see this morning and you can read about them tomorrow! You can read about Keeneland by clicking their official website link…

Enjoying interesting places is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

In other news…

 

 

I bought our rear view camera systems for the motorhome in 2009. As with all electronics occasionally things act up and they do not work as they should. So was the case recently. Without going into the technical aspects, I’ll simply say 4uCam has great customer service and readily took care of my problem. If you are considering such a system, I highly recommend them to you. You can see their products on their website at http://4ucam.com/

Minute Man National Park – Lexington & Concord, Massachsetts

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’ve been here a number of times before, so I’ve thoroughly seen all of the local tourist attractions. So, now I’m just hanging out enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues delay plagued. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

A more relaxed mode…

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, I have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months I will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Today’s Subject…Minute Man National Park – Lexington & Concord, Massachusetts…

Keeneland Race Track – Lexington, Kentucky

The motorhome is currently parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. My current departure date is scheduled for December 1st.

During this time I’ll be attending to my cataract surgery, cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to the motorhome and Bronco in addition to assisting Mary with her activities. None of these items are particularly exciting to write about…so…instead I’ll be showing Picasa Web Albums from our 682 day, 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States. It was Mary’s second circumnavigation and the sixth for myself.

Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily. So come back tomorrow.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

The cataract surgery of my right eye was conducted on October 9th. It appears to have been successful and my last exam on October 24th had it at 20/25, down from 20/200 prior to the surgery. Surgery on my left eye is now scheduled for November 6th.

Yesterday was a partly sunny day and 65 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 68 degrees.
