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’ll depart here 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.
Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 45 miles from Bark River to Iron Mountain, Michigan. Mary lived in this area at about the age of ten.
Along the way we stopped at the home of the world’s largest pasty. You can read all about this place by clicking this link… http://pastys.com/
Here are some of the photos that I took…

They are big…
Here’s what they look like inside. Full of beef, potatoes and onion…
Seasoned lightly with salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ketchup are they are ready to be eaten…
In Iron Mountain the afternoon temperature hit 91 degrees…feel like 96. We found a shady spot to hide under for a couple of hours. We read while the air conditioner brought the 94 degrees inside the motorhome to a livable 80 degrees…
About 5:00 PM, We moved to Elks Lodge #700 which was closed, but we parked there for the night any ways…
Here’s the usual dinette window photo…
Today we hope to get our motorhome to Bronco electrical problems resolved. Then visit a couple of old Mary’s haunts, do laundry, then move on down the road.
Another scorcher is forecast for today.. 92 degrees with a real feel of 102. At 4:00 AM it was 80 degrees with 64% humidity. YUK!
Enjoying visiting places where you lived years ago is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
The red dot on the below map shows our approximate location in the State of Michigan. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…
