Browning, Montana

The motorhome is now parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort along the bank of the Skykomish River in Monroe, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. My scheduled departure date is September 23rd.

I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in mid-October. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!

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…Browning, Montana…

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

A No And A Possible Maybe…

Within the last month I blogged about re-reading a book that I had read many years ago…Blue Highways by William Least Heat-Moon. If you have not read it, it’s about a one-year trip he took in the latter 1970’s. After separating from his wife and losing his job as an English teacher in a small college in Missouri because of a faltering economy, in a basic small Ford Van, he built a wooden bunk, loading the unit with minimal supplies and headed off alone on a 13,000 mile circular trip around the United States. The story documents the places he visited and people he met along the way. It’s become a quasi-classic.

Like most authors who achieve some positive results, he set about seeking a sequel(s). I must say he publishes big books. They are 6×9 inches and about 500 pages.

His second book is about an in-depth look at Chase County, Kansas…supposedly the geographical center-point of the United States. I tried to read it…got about 50 pages in…and just gave up…something I rarely do to a book…but I just do not do well with boring…even in a book. I need to mention that being of a Native American decent and an English teacher…gives him a somewhat awkward style of writing…at least for me. So, his second book…PrarieErth gets a big NO from me.

His third book River Horse gets the Possible Maybe. This books documents his four-month crossing of the interior of the United States…by boat. Unlike his Blue Highways trip…this time he has several different travel companions during the course of the trip. I”m into this book about 100 pages and so far haven’t quit…although I’m finding it struggling at times.

I’m not sure why it is…but sequels never seem to be as good as the originals. According to the books covers all three of his books were on the New York Times best-sellers list. Perhaps you might enjoy reading his books…maybe it’s just me. I just believe I shouldn’t have to struggle with a book. So my Possible Maybe for this book means it’s just possible and maybe that I might not quit and actually finish this book.

Here’s another of my sayings…”Why are a good book and an RV alike?…Because they both can take you to wonderful places!”

RV Trip Favorite Photos #332-343

Jim says:

While Mary and I are taking care of business here at her home…there is little “new stuff” to Blog about daily. So I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite photos from our recent 298 day, 16,000+ mile RV trip around the United States.

Since scenery and people snapshot-type photos require little special photography skills…and being limited by the abilities of my digital camera…I none the less took some photos that I really liked. They are presented in no special order of favoritism. If you desire to see more associated photos and information about this area, you will need to find this date in the archive files of this Blog.

Today’s photos were taken at Mystic Seaport, Connecticut on August 12, 2010……

Alligator Annie’s Son’s Swamp and Marsh Tour

Jim says: Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day with a temperature of 63 degrees. A perfect day to take a swamp and marsh tour…and that’s just what we did!

2.5 hours through picturesque swamps and marshes of the Mandalay National Wildlife Refuge and Bayou Black complete with lots of wildlife. Our tour guide told us that because of the unusually cold and rainy winter season in Louisiana, we might have trouble seeing any alligators. Nonetheless we did manage to see four!

To top off a great tour, some other folks on the tour (Jim & Joann Diethrich and family) invited Mary and I to join them at their table in the restaurant. They were really nice people and we enjoyed our conversations with them.
