Camden, Tennessee (GA478)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd 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 Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart October 17th.

 

 

 

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.

This entry was posted May 2, 2013…

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 75 miles from Savannah to Camden, Tennessee.

 

 

Along the way we traveled on some narrow back roads…

Our first stop was at a rather unusual place…the Birdsong Marina, Campground and Pearl Farm/Museum. The next photo is of an aerial photo of the 58 acre complex…

And a photo of one of their advertisements…

Owners Bob and Judy Keast have two very complete websites. Here’s the link for the marina/campground…

Bob told us that this is the only freshwater pearl farm in North America. Here’s the link for the Pearl Farm/Museum…

Here are some of the photos that I took there…

Then on into Camden where we parked the motorhome at the back of Elks Club #2156…

and my usual dinette window photo…

I then unhooked the Bronco to drive the Bronco the about five miles to the Patsy Cline Crash Site Memorial location. Patsy Cline was a very famous country-western music singer who was only 30 years old when she died. You can read about her and the crash by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Once you reach the parking area you have to walk down an incline for about 300 yards. Mary wasn’t up to the return climb so she waited for me at the top…

In 2007 I passed through Patsy’s hometown of Winchester, Virginia and visited her two homes, the drugstore where she once worked and her grave site. You can see those photos by clicking this Picasa Web Album link…

Upon return to the Elks club we went inside and met a bunch of very friendly people. So much so that when we exited two hours later we declared Elks club #2156 in Camden, Tennessee…The Friendliest Elks Club In The United States!

 

 

We will move along further down the road later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying interesting places and museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Hillsboro To Seaside, Oregon

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 69 miles from Hillsboro to Seaside, Oregon.

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

I arrived at Thousand Trails Seaside RV Resort…

 

 

 

 

And the usual dinette window photo…

 

I’ve been here a number of times over the years. It’s one of my favorite parks in the system. I’m currently scheduled to depart here October 17th.

 

In yesterday’s blog, I discussed my intermittent low power problem on the motorhome. I believe this issue has finally been resolved. I’ll discuss this tomorrow.

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Forecast for today is partly sunny and 59 degrees.

Heron Lake State Park – Day 48 (GA196)

 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 Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart here October 26th.

 

 

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!</div?

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

This entry was posted August 6, 2012…

 

The motorhome is still parked at Heron Lake State Park about 20 miles south of Chama, New Mexico while I am recovering from my May 27th accident. To read about my recovery status, click this link… https://otrwjam.wordpress.com/medical-condition-status-page/

 

 

A few days back I drove the Bronco over to the south (bottom) to neighboring (lower left) El Vado Lake. My current campsite is shown by the “X”.

 

 

In the past few days, I’ve shown photos from nearby El Vado Lake. Today I’ll conclude from El Vado Lake with this series of a kyacker…

 

 

Here are some photos that I took…

Port Allen Lock, Louisiana

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Seaside RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. My current scheduled departure date is June 4th.

Mary returned from her trip to Turkey on May 5th. She now finds herself awash in personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc.. After a long discussion we have agreed she will now meet me July 26th in Bellingham, Washington. When we met in 2008 we both knew that she might run into situations like this and agreed that she would travel with me on a part-time basis. She has thanked me for not pressuring her to return at an earlier date. We all have to do, what we have to do in this world.

I have stayed at this resort several times before and have thoroughly explored the area as far as tourist attractions go. While I wait for Mary’s arrival, I occupy my time with some light routine maintenance, cleaning, reading, walking, computer work, listening to music, watching movies, visiting American Legion, VFW, Moose and Eagles Clubs, visiting friends along the way, etc..

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link… http://marinas.com/view/lock/361_Port_Allen_Canal_Lock_LA_United_States
