Old Timer…

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.

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.



Aging is an interesting experience…


Now that I recently passed the average life expectancy of a white male in the United States of 77.8 years, I guess I’m a genuine old timer!


I’m finding each day beyond that time really interesting. Knowing that any moment I might be gone has increased my awareness of my surroundings and what I happen to be doing. It’s an experience I’m thoroughly enjoying and given the opportunity of going back to an earlier age, I would decline. I find myself extremely happy at my current age.


A couple of days ago I stumbled upon this video by Willie Nelson entitled Old Timer. Is there anyone that doesn’t enjoy the music of Wiilie Nelson? The lyrics of this pretty song are intriguing to me.


I really enjoyed it and hope you will as well…








By the way, Willie is currently 85 years old and still on the road doing concerts. He’s lived quite the life!


Hmmm… now that I think about it so have I!  Like Willie, I’m still on the road doing my thing!  🙂




I hope you enjoyed the video.


Forecast for today is mostly cloudy and 58 degrees.



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

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

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!
