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 Soledad Canyon RV Resort at Acton, California. I’m expecting to depart here March 27th.
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 2012-2013, 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.

Yesterday Mary and I left the motorhome at the VFW parking lot in Sierra Vista, Arizona and visited the museum at Fort Huachaca (Wha-choo-ka) about 5 miles distant.
The fort was established in 1877 so the Army could protect settlers and those on their way to California from the Apache Indians. With the exception of a brief seven month shut-down, it has been in continuous operation since that time. It has been the home of the famous Indian Scouts and also the Buffalo Soldiers.
Here’s a Wikipedia link about the history of the fort…
The museum had lots of old photos, prints, paintings and statues. However, the museum was very dimly lit and the photography was difficult at best.
Here are some of the photos that I took…

Last evening we went into the VFW for their Friday night fish fry, While there we met both the manager and the commander. The manager told us they are…membership-wise..the largest VFW Post in Arizona and the third largest in the World! I guess it helps to be right night to a major military base. Also unusual about this Post was everyone was very friendly. A general rule of thumb is…the smaller the facility…the friendlier they are. Just goes to show there’s an exception to every rule!
This marks the end of our visit to Sierra Vista, Arizona. We’ll be moving along this morning.

Yesterday was mostly sunny and 84 degrees. Forecast for today is partly cloudy and 68 degrees.
Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
