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 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I’ll planning to depart her June 11th.
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.
In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!
So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

In my many years on the road I’ve managed to get to a few garages along the way…but none as clean as this one.
My first stop when arriving in Albuquerque, New Mexico a few days ago was at Advantage Automotive. The motorhome had an ABS light that would not go out after starting the engine and this is the only Workhorse Chassis repair facility in the Albuquerque area.
Not only is the shop clean, but they are also very knowledgeable and nice people. A rare combination to find in an automotive garage.
Let me show you this place…
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…

James, the owner, worked on the motorhome personally…
Sharon and her husband John ( not shown) will greet you when you arrive…
According to their business card…

They are conveniently located at 511 Piasano, NE, near the intersection of I-40 and Juan Tabo. Their telephone number is (505) 298-4996.

If you are a regular follower of my Blog, you’ll know I rarely recommend anything. I only do it when someone or something is exceptional.
If you should happen to need servicing on your vehicles while in the Albuquerque area…I highly recommend them to you!

Yesterday was partly cloudy with occasional rain and 63 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with occasional rain and 63 degrees.
Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
