Unique And Efficient, But…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Fort Townsend State Park in Port Townsend, Washington. I’ll be departing from here later this morning.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m several blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode within a couple of weeks.)

 

Today’s subject jumps back in to real-time to yesterday for one day. Unique And Efficient, But…

I wouldn’t want to live in it full-time! But it suits the needs of Paul and Terri just fine!

 

This blog entry is about my next-campsite neighbors, Paul and Terri from Tacoma, Washington and their unique RV. Paul is retired U.S. Army and a very talented handyman. They have had this rig since 2013 and traveled all over the western United States…

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

Their tow vehicle is the world’s only Ford Bronco 3. Ford Motor Company never made one. It’s actually a 1991 Ford Explorer that once had four doors…

Paul also custom-built the storage area…

Paul created their unique RV using a fold-up motorcycle trailer as a base. He told me the whole thing is held together by about eight bolts. When at home, he disassembles the unit, folds the trailer in half and stores it in the corner of his garage…

Pretty neat…

Their license frame says it all…

Paul told me he got some of his modification ideas from this website…

It’s always fun to run across unique things as I travel. Paul and Terri have created a most interesting and unique RV…something you don’t get to see every day. Safe travels, Paul and Terri. Thanks for sharing your unique RV with us!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

 

While the rest of the nation bakes under high temperatures, this is why I am where I am! At Mary’s home in California, the next seven-day forecast is for 101+ temperatures!

Yesterday was cloudy/sunny and 64 degrees. Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 69 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!

A week ago Monday I arrived in Bremerton, Washington for what ended up to be a four-day visit. It allowed me to visit with my friends, Sandy and Charlie Brown, three different times while there. I met Sandy and her husband Ted in Yuma, Arizona back in the days when they were RVing. The below photo was taken in December, 2006. Ted passed away in 2014…

I met Charlie Brown when he was adopted by Ted and Sandy in January, 2007…

 

 

 

 

Fast forward to 2016. Sandy (no last name being provided because she is now a single woman), came to visit me in the motorhome upon my arrival…

Sandy drove me around town to see some of the local attractions. While we were out, Charlie Brown guarded her car. Charlie is now nine years old…

Sandy was 70 years and two-days old when I took this photo. Looking good for an older lady!  :)…

Thanks for a nice visit Sandy.

A One Night Visit With The Bedingers – Southworth, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Fort Townsend State Park in Port Townsend, Washington. I’ll be departing from here this coming Sunday.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m several blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode within a couple of weeks.)

 

A week ago Sunday I enjoyed a one night visit with the Bedingers in Southworth, Washington. Who are the Bedingers, you ask? The are the family that bought my famous motorhome in which I made my 2004 Mexico/Central America trip. They bought the motorhome in 2009 with the admonition…if you are ever in our area, give us a call and stop by. That’s just what I did.

Back on this past June 16th, I unexpectedly came across Ned with his new motorhome at Ocean Shores, Washington. You can read about that encounter and about the ultimate fate of the motorhome they bought from me in 2009, by clicking this link…

Ned and Miles love to cook. I was treated to a great baked salmon, broccoli, corn and yogurt fruit salad meal…
