Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 73

The motorhome is still parked at Heron Lake State Park about 20 miles south of Chama, New Mexico.

I’ve been here for several weeks now and have photographed everything worth seeing within a 30 mile radius. I’m still not feeling that well that I care to drive lots of miles in search of photographs. The doctors told rest should be my #1 function.

Lake Heron has an amazing number of widely varied sunrises, sunsets and cloud formations. I’ve got some really neat photos to share. I’ve already taken them and will portion them out over the next several days.

 While they are similar because of the momentary setting…they are all very different and unique. I hope you will open each one and enjoy their uniqueness. I particularly like to enjoy the colors and the shapes. Just like staring at a fire from moment to moment…you never see quite the same thing…

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…

Enjoying beautiful sunsets is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!

While I’m recovering, Mary remains at her home in California tending to doctor’s appointments, her rentals and other miscellaneous business.

Was James Dean An RVer?

We’re still at the Golden Sun RV Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona where we will remain hanging out and visiting with friends. See my Blog entry for more information about this place… http://wp.me/pDCku-3wM

Yesterday was laundry day in preparation for our planned departure tomorrow. Today we’ll grocery shop and visit another of Mary’s cousins.

In the meantime..I thought you might enjoy this interesting RV story…

Bear Gulch Trail

Yesterday…on our final full day at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe,Washington…Mary and I took an afternoon walk on Bear Gulch Trail which runs along a ridge above the campground. It was a delightful day to take some photos. You may click on them to see an enlarged view…

In case you are wondering…no…we did not see any bears.

Chinabago…

As we…the United States of America continue to send all of our jobs and money to China…we’re also sending them something else of ours…the RVing lifestyle. Just yesterday my Blog posting identified how motorhomes in the U.S. are smaller and less flashy than just a few years ago.

Here’s the link from China Times…

Makes me wonder when this country is going to wake up. Must we wait until there are no more jobs and all are homeless?

The United States is such a beautiful country. It’s truly sad what the politicians have done to it! 😦

I Visit “THE” Information Man Of…

the RVing World! If it has to do with RVing…Chuck Woodbury knows about it.

Yesterday I drove the one hour drive from my current camping spot in Monroe to meet Chuck Woodbury at his office in Edmunds, Washington. Chuck and I have chatted via email a few times in the last couple of years…but had not previously had a chance for a face-to-face meeting. Both of us have been RVing for many years…but have not managed to cross paths in all that time.

Chuck Woodbury is the editor of this, now electronic, weekly RVing newsletter which he has been writing for nearly ten years. In addition, Chuch writes several other RVing Blogs and runs the RV Bookstore…specializing, naturally, in books about the RVing lifestyle.

Here’s Chuck’s biography as taken from his newsletter…

——————————————————————–

About the RVtravel.com editor
Chuck Woodbury has explored America by RV for nearly three decades. In the ’90s he published the quirky travel newspaper Out West about his adventures, and he was an “on the road” writer for the New York Times Syndicate. Nowadays, he lives near Seattle where he drinks massive amounts of coffee and travels often in his motorhome and sometimes by plane when vast expanses of saltwater would turn his RV into a leaky submarine. He is the host of the Better Business Bureau DVD “Buying a Recreational Vehicle,” the definitive guide to purchasing an RV the right way.

———————————————————————–

We had a very enjoyable 2.5 hour visit comparing our RVing lifestyle experiences.

In the past I had queried Chuck about having my books in his RV bookstore and he was truthful…telling me my books were concerned with such a very small niche market…that he couldn’t handle them. I had absolutely no problems and understood fully.

So…while during my visit with him…I was greatly surprised when he suggested that we do a video interview and that he would use portions of it to promote my books in his weekly newsletter.

Here are some photos I took during my visit…

His “office” is in a warehouse in a nice business complex…

Here is the office…video studio and a portion of his storeroom…

Looking from the back of the storeroom towards the front door…

Finally, Chuch setting up the video camera for my interview…

Chuck told me that he has 21,000 regular subscribers to his newsletter and that it receives about 60,000 page hits a week!

If you are an RVer and are not reading his weekly newletter…you should be! If you are not an RVer…but have RVing friends…you need to tell them about Chuck and his weekly newsletter. Better yet send them a link so that can see and read it for themselves.

Here’s the link to Chuck’s latest newsletter…
