——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’m scheduled to depart here May 9th.

 

 

 

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 September 18, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 84 miles from Libby, Montana to Sandpoint, Idaho,

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

 

The traffic continued light along Highway 2…

About nine miles north of Libby, we stopped to see the Kootenai (KOOT-nee) Swinging Bridge and Falls. The 1994 movie ‘The Wild River’ starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon was filmed here. As we started down the trail, we got this peek-a-boo view of the falls…

A little further on we crossed this walkway built by the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad…

So that folks wouldn’t get run over by this train…

Then down 64 steps to continue on the trail…

Until we came to this fork in the trail. We decided to take the longer path to the left to the swinging bridge first…

A few minutes later we got our first glimpse of the swinging bridge…

We got there a few minutes later…

The bridge was built by the U.S. Forest Service to give them access to forest fires on the other side of the river…

It really does swing when walked upon…

This river remains as the largest un-damed river in Montana.

 

 

Being mid-Septenber, one can only imagine what this must be like in late March when the snows start to melt. You can read all about this place by clicking this link… http://www.libbymt.com/areaattractions/kootenaifalls.htm

 

 

 

 

 

Continuing on, the traffic remained light as we entered Idaho and the Pacific Time Zone…

We stopped in the City of Bonners Ferry and went to the Boundary County Museum. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Continuing on, we ended up at Sandpoint, Idaho where we parked overnight at VFW Post #2453 and they provided an electrical hookup…

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…

Yesterday was the second decent weather day we’ve experienced in a long time, High temperature under sunny then cloudy skies only got to 71 with lower humidity. It rained for about four hours during the night.

 

 

Forecast high temperature for today is 67 degrees with scattered showers. Yes! Mucho Bettero!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying friendly VFW Posts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Danbury, Connecticut (GA514)

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I’m planning to depart November 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.

This entry was posted June 7, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at the Connecticut Welcome Center. I’ll depart later this morning and arrive at my son’s home later this afternoon.

 

 

Mary is in Las Vegas, Nevada for her grandson’s high school graduation. Today’s forecast is for 107 degrees, the next two days is 109 and 105. Glad I’m not there!

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 80 miles from Oakland, New Jersey to Danbury, Connecticut. I thought I would enjoy a nice back-country road drive by starting out on U.S. Highway 202. After only a few miles I encountered this bridge with an opening of 9’7″…the motorhome height is 11’2″…no way Jose’!…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

Having no other choice I took a left turn hoping to find a way around it, I went only a short way only to encounter a bridge at 11’0″…Hmmm. Low bridges are a problem in this part of the world!

 

 

 

 

 

So I back-tracked about three miles and much to my dismay ended up on Interstate Highway 287 North. I was amazed at the poor condition of the roadway. Many potholes and poor patch jobs made for a bone-jarring ride in many places. Just because you are on an Interstate Highway does not mean clear sailing. It took me about 30 minutes to get through this slow-up…

Caused by an accident on the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge which crosses the Hudson River. I could not determine the problem, but the opposite direction traffic was completely blocked and backed-up for more than five miles…

Two Unusual Happenings Yesterday…

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 Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I expect to leave tomorrow.

 

 

I’ve been coming to Mary’s home for ten years. Usually a couple of times a year for a 2-3 week visit. I’m always here during the Thanksgiving period.

 

For the very first time, yesterday I saw these very pretty birds. I looked for them online and believe them to be Western Bluebirds…

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the second unusual happening was the arrival of my new AND VERY FIRST, smartphone. It’s the Moto G5plus…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mary bought one a few months ago and I got to play with it for a couple of hours on Thanksgiving Day. It’s the top-rated smartphone under $300, which for my use will work just fine. My current flip-phone is now 3.5 years old. Other than replacing the battery, I’ve not had any problems with it. But hey, how long can it be before it quits? I got a nice Black Friday Amazon price of $199.

 

It arrived about 11:30 AM yesterday. I spent the afternoon getting acquainted with it. It’s quite the amazing and interesting device. I’m pleased to say it’s a lot less complicated than I envisioned.

 

This morning I’ll head to the Verizon store to get a Sim Card and arrange to transfer contacts info.

 

The real reason I waited so long is because I wanted to be sure smartphones were not just a another fad!  🙂

 

It’s not my nature to rush into things. Being an ex-engineer, I’ll be busy during the next month learning how to run the dang thing. Fortunately, all I have is time!  🙂

 

In case you are interested, there are MANY videos about this device on YouTube. This link says 194,000 results…

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=moto+g5+plus+videos

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

 

Forecast for today is cloudy and 64 degrees.

LUNCH IN ALGODONES

This is a sign you can understand in any language and not one we see much. Algodones, Mexico, about five miles West of Yuma  is reputed to have the highest density of dentists, pharmacies, doctors and opticians in a four block area,  than any similar four block area  in the world.

Hawkers reach out and offer to guide you to a dentist, doctor, etc.  every step of the way. Not that you need guidance, every other sign is for one or the other.  For most of them you don’t need an appointment. We arrived at 9:00 a.m. to be first in the door to Denny Salinas’ office, except, he was no longer at the same address as our last visit in 2009.  A young woman named Bettina walked us several blocks away to his fancy new digs. We learned you now need an appointment. But, as a former  customer,  he took a look at a problem I was having with an implant he did and fitted me in for ex-rays and a diagnosis.

We walked around town to look around. People, many recognizable “snowbirds”, were sitting in a busy square sunning themselves and  listening to a very good musician play several types of flute. Hauntingly beautiful sounds I recognized from Peruvian culture.

His partner was selling  his very popular CD’s. I could have stayed an listened for an hour.

The spray can artists were also working the square. They can do amazing things with spray paint and a piece of paper, rubbing the paint on then quickly drying it with a hair dryer. Jim cautioned this guy waving  a cigarette near the painters  but he laughed and defied the notion that a cigarette around all of those chemicals was in danger of exploding or starting a fire.  Popular pieces are the television dishes snowbirds have on their RV’s. In fact, Algodones depends so much on Canadian and American tourists they have a closed-street block party in December welcoming snowbirds  back to Algodones.

In our motor home we don’t have room to buy “stuff” but I like to look, anyway. People buy cheap drugs and liquor here as well. I got a bottle of vodka.

We like an open restaurant, hole-in-the wall type, that starts you off with three  kinds of salsa  a red, a green, both hot and home-made. Then avocado salsa,  sour cream, limes,  and chips.  A plate with tomatoes, onion, cilantro and shredded cabbage.  They cook their meats on a charcoal grill in front of their place. I tell you that because I haven’t a clue what the name of the place is if you go.

The food is always good and cheap, $5 for a whole chicken with rice and beans. Jim took a small portion. I ordered four tacos forgetting that they fill them really full of meat. Our two meals with Tecates cost us $13.00. The Tecate is good with a squeeze of lime in it. I never have this much fun when I go to my dentist in Murphys, doncha know!

Jim likes to go early so we get back across the border before the crowds line up. We didn’t make it. I didn’t mind at all talking to other folks in line. It was about a twenty-minute wait before we went through the friendly immigration inspection.

Something new since our last visit, for $5 you can be driven over in the yellow cart  and skip the line. The drug sniffing dog sniffs the cart and all the cars, too.
