I Visit With Good Friends Bud Kuball And Julie Paradise…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. I’ll depart later this morning.

Mary continues to be occupied 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.

Yesterday I visited with my good friends…Bud Kuball and Julie Paradise who live here in Las Vegas.

I first met Bud Kuball in December, 2003 in Gila Bend, AZ where we had gathered to begin our 343 day, 16,000+ mile RV trip through Mexico and the seven countries of Central America. As things turned out Bud was the only person with his motorhome, beside myself, to go the full preplanned route and schedule. We returned to the United States at Douglas, AZ on December 9, 2004. Earlier in life Bud was a fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy. After leaving the service, he was a pilot for Trans-World Airlines for 36 years. Bud has lived in Las Vegas since 1982. Bud is now 85 years old and yesterday he went skiing! What a guy!

I first met Julie when she flew into Cancun, Mexico to join Bud for a visit. During the course of our journey, Julie flew down to visit Bud several times. In her earlier life Julie was a flight attendant for Trans-World Airlines for 40 years. In my Panama or Bust book there is a full-page photo of Julie dancing on a bar in Leon, Mexico… and here it is…


We enjoyed a nice three-hour visit during which they  treated me to a nice meal at the Outback Steak House.

Both of these fine people have become good friends despite the fact we seldom get to see each other. I was last in Las Vegas in January, 2011.


Yesterday was a sunny and 74 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 76 degrees.

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

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!
