The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.

 

 

 

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 September 2, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 75 miles from Grand Rapids to Bemidji, Minnesota.

 

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

 

The day started with a misting rain…

Labor Day Weekend Sunday Morning traffic was light…

Arriving at Bemidji, we stopped at Paul Bunyan Park along the shore of Lake Bemidji. Since we are tourists, we just had to take photos with Paul and Babe…

Just before arriving in Bemidji, we crossed a small creek with a sign that indicated it was the Mississippi River. Then I remembered it starts up here in Northern Minnesota. Here is the Mississippi River as it flows in to Lake Bemidji, about 50 miles south of its origination point…

Nearby there’s a tourist information center with reclaimed marshlands…

013

 

 

 

 

 

We walked around downtown Bemidji scouting both the Elks and American Legion…neither of which had a parking lot and were closed. The museum was also closed. We doubled-back about three miles and parked at a very Friendly Eagles Airee #351 where they provided both an electrical hookup and a free Wi-Fi signal…

Here’s the usual dinette photo…

At the Eagles we participated in a spaghetti dinner benefit for a young man with heavy-duty medical problems. Thank you Eagles Airee for allowing us a very pleasant visit!

 

 

First it’s too hot and then it’s too cold. Yesterday morning was in the low 50’s. Cold enough that with a brisk wind, I had to wear my sweats and down vest while walking around Bemidji! Today is forecast to be 72 degrees. At 5:30 AM this morning it was 55 degrees with 71% humidity. I’ll be so glad to leave the high humidity behind me!

 

 

As a side note…Bemidji is the birthplace of Jane Russell. If you have forgotten who she was…here’s a Wikipedia link to refresh your memory… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Russell

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying friendly Eagles Airees is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 85 miles from Superior, Wisconsin to Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

 

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

 

The day started with a beautiful sunrise at Superior, Wisconsin as seen from my dinette seat in the motorhome…

Being a Labor Day Weekend Saturday, the traffic along Route 2 was heavier than usual…

011

 

 

 

 

 

We wanted to park in the center of Grand Rapids, but they do not allow overnight parking on any city streets. So, being a Wells Fargo customer, I asked the manager if we could park in his lot as he was closing at noon and he said okay…

018

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…not much to look at…but it’s free!!!

Looking towards the rear of the motorhome a flag is located over the rear entrance to the American Legion…

024

 

 

 

 

 

Looking forward the building on the left of the alley is the backside of the VFW…

021

 

 

While Mary wandered through some of the local shops, I spent the afternoon reading.

 

 

 

 

 

To leave, I have to maneuver the motorhome through this alley. If I coat the sides of the motorhome with Vaseline, I might just make it…

026

 

 

Too hot again yesterday with temperatures in the mid 80’s and 72% humidity.

 

 

A late afternoon thunderstorm lowered the temperature somewhat. At 5:30 AM this morning it was 64 degrees with 76% humidity. I received a comment that one person is getting tired of my use of the word YUK to describe my feelings about the weather. How about YUKITTY?  🙂

 

 

As a side note…Grand Rapids is the birthplace of Judy Garland. If you have forgotten who she was…here’s a Wikipedia link to refresh your memory… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_garland

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying friendly VFW Posts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Just outside of Ashland we stopped to visit the Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center which depicts life in this part of the country. You can read about this place by clicking this link… http://nglvc.org/

In Superior we stopped at the Richard Bong Veterans Historical Center. Richard Bong was born and raised just a few miles east of Superior in Poplar, Wisconsin which we passed through yesterday. He is America’s all time air ace. In World War II he flew 207 missions in 157 days and recorded 40 kills. As a test pilot for the new jet-powered P-38, he crashed and died at the age of 24.

One Year Ago Today…

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.
To view past blogs, scroll to the bottom of this page and use the menu.
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 Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.

 

 

One year ago today was the last time Mary posted a blog entry on this blog-site. There are number of reasons associated with this statement. Home and rental properties maintenance, family and unfortunately medical issues.

 

Sadly about six weeks ago Mary was diagnosed with colon cancer and has been struggling since her chemo treatments began about six weeks ago.

 

Recently I emailed her regarding this date’s significance wondering if she might want to put together a blog posting so that her followers might wonder why she has been absent for so long.

 

She asked if I could come up with something positive which is pretty hard to do with so much bad news. Here’s a small indication for one her more recent emails to me…

 

Cancer is basically a master of my time. It demands three procedures for infusion,  Infusion on Monday, disconnect   port on Wednesday,  blood test for the next one on Friday. That is three trips to the hospital, then a week of supposed comfort. for me, has not been. I’ve had maybe one day of comfort out of five, as chemo, a poison, affects everyone differently. They’ve tweaked and dialed down the amount of chemo first by 10% then by 25%. I’m now somewhat stable for 4 weeks where tumors have shrunk by 1/3 and I do not have as much pain. I’ve lost 7 pounds during this time and can’t seem to gain any weight. Other patients I’ve spoken too have the same problem. The hope is that after the four weeks, they can tell how aggressive the cancer is and then attack again.  I think that is about all I can convey.

8/27/19…
Dying does make one a bit nostalgic. I’m really on thin ice. Chemo, chemo, chemo every two weeks. They are waning me that it may not be shrinking the tumors because they mutate. Then, the last chance I have is the inhibitor. She has been reluctant to use it.  I guess I’ll find out in about two months. I’ll have a scan. I’m trying this week to get my newspaper features down from up above so I can have them  printed into a book. I’ll hire it done.  And, I have a gal coming after you leave on Wednesday. She will turn my place into an AirBnb and manage it. And, I will ask her if she will finish my genealogy for me. She is good at that as well. Then I will write my obituary and say, hey, I’ll make it to 79, maybe even 80. That is a perfectly reasonable old age to live to especially since my life has been so great. More than I ever expected.

 

 

 

 

 

NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS…

 

She is still with us. She’s a fighter and if anyone can beat this, she can! Despite the above messages, she remains upbeat most of the time.  All she can do is…just like the rest of us…is to…live her life One Day At A Time!

To end this message on a positive note, I thought I’d include some photos of her from happier times…

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And finally her 75th Birthday photo that I took for her…

 

 

 

 

I’m sure you will join me in wishing the very best of luck for her future well-being.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is sunny and 71 degrees.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.

 

 

This is the third video which I guess is becoming a series about how politicians are destroying our beautiful country…

 

The freedom to travel domestically will soon be challenged…

What’s that you say? Impossible, Incredible, Ridiculous, etc…

 

I love to travel our beautiful country. Always have and always will (maybe)… that is if what is discussed in this video comes about… you and I may not be able to do so.

 

You may agree or disagree, if nothing else what is discussed in this video is certainly food for thought!

 

 

 

 

 

If you believe there is the slightest chance this may happen, I encourage you to share it with your friends.

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the video.

Forecast for today is sunny and 72 degrees.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.

 

 

 

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 August 30, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 40 miles from  Hurley to Ashland, Wisconsin.

 

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

A Hurley, Wisconsin sunrise…

We decided to take a Lake Superior waterfront RV site at the Kreher RV Park in Ashland, Wisconsin where we are parked about 100 feet from the lake shore…

016

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…

009

 

 

 

 

 

And Lake Superior as seen through the motorhome windshield…

This map shows our route through Michigan and Wisconsin…

The calendar photo shows our waterfront site marked in yellow…

The city has a number of murals…

041

 

 

 

 

 

Ashland once had a large ore dock…

024

 

 

 

 

 

Which has recently been demolished and all that is left is the remains of the pier…

048

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a couple of photos taken at the nearby  waterfront…

043

 

 

 

 

 

045

 

 

 

 

 

At 2:00 PM, a violent thunderstorm erupted with winds in excess of 60 miles an hour. It blew really hard for a half-hour…

006

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s what the radar looked like during the storm. Ashland is in the darkest red…

011a

 

 

 

 

 

This photo looks at our RV park from the water. Our motorhome is the furthest on the right partially hidden by the playground equipment…

050

 

 

 

 

 

The final photo of the day occurred at 8:15 PM overlooking Lake Superior…

007

 

 

Yesterday was another horrendous weather day…86 degrees with a real feel of 95 and high humidity. After the storm blew through, the temperature dropped to a delightful 70 degrees with 72% humidity.

 

 

At 5:00 AM this morning it was 72 degrees with 82% humidity. Good temperature…lousy humidity! YUK!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying a Lake Superior waterfront RV site is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
