Yesterday I drove the motorhome 113 miles from Nicolaus to Murphys, California. I’m now at Mary’s home and am scheduled to depart September 29th. While here, I’ll do routine maintenance to both vehicles.



In a number of past blog posting, I have indicated that I watch YouTube videos while eating my breakfast. I do so because I am intrigued by the vastness of the subjects. Today’s posting is an example…

Have you ever wondered about where and how  rubber tires come from? No, neither have I. As a life-long traveler I’ve logged many a thousands of miles upon rubber tires. Hence, I found the below video most interesting. Can I do anything about it short of never buying a rubber tire again? Nope, not in today’s life style. Rubber tires make the world go around… excuse the pun!  🙂




Nonetheless, I found the below video most interesting It runs 28:25 minutes….







I hope you enjoyed the video!

Forecast for today is sunny and 79 degrees. To danged hot!

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
