Working On The Motorhome – Day 12

The motorhome is parked in Mary’s yard at her home at Murphys, California. My departure date to head South is now set for December 2nd. About one month later Mary will fly to meet me in Yuma, Arizona.

In the meantime, I’ll continue cleaning and doing minor work on both the motorhome and Bronco. After our 682 day journey, they were both ready for some attention.

Yesterday was a mostly sunny day at 62 degrees. The forecast calls for sunny weather in the 60’s and low 70’s through November 10th. Today is forecast sunny and 64 degrees.

Yesterday I took a break from cleaning and did some miscellaneous chores. First I assisted Mary with the repair of a Strongback Chair she really likes. Mary’s son Doug is a big guy and exceeds the chair’s weight rating, hence the need for a repair. Luckily we managed to get the damage repaired. Mary sewed while I held the awkward chair in positions that she was able to sew…

Then I updated our atlas with all Thousand Trails locations west of the Mississippi River. Mary and I are members of Thousand Trails and no longer expect to travel east of the Mississippi River…


The black dots makes it really easy to see at a glance where they are located…


Using the computer made finding their locations easy…


Finally I filled out my Health Care Agent and Living Will form. This identifies who can make health care decisions for me if I’m not able to do so. It also describes my desires of what I want done in certain medical situations. Need to be ready for the eventual day!

My miscellaneous chores list is now complete. The only thing awaiting my attention is more cleaning on the interior of the motorhome.

More cleaning today.

Since our accident about 1.5 years ago, I now suffer from diminished energy/stamina. I can now work only 2-3 hours a day before I get tired and have to quit. I know that these current Blog entries are not particularly exciting reading, but they do reflect the daily activities of a full-time RVer. Gotta stop and clean and work on the vehicles once in a while!

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

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
