2011-2013 – 6th Circumnavigation Of The USA…Update #1 (GA12)

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 Palm Springs RV resort at Palm Desert, California. I expect to depart February 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.

 

 

 

This entry was posted February 6, 2012…

 

 

This Blog posting…which I will post from time-to-time…will be used to present my/our travels on this almost two-year circumnavigation of the United States…my 6th. During these circumnavigations, I try to travel on roads I’ve not seen before…I’m about 90% successful in that regard.

 

 

The only things I know about our potential destinations during this upcoming adventure is that I/we plan to spend a good portion of 2012 exploring the State of New Mexico. In 2013 we’re planning to attend my oldest grand-daughter’s high school graduation in June in southeastern Connecticut. Other than that…we’ll just have to find out one-day-at-a-time where our fates will send us.

 

 

The trip began from Murphys, California on November 29, 2011 with 35,956.5 miles on the motorhome odometer. In addition to showing the route taken, I intend to also document where I/we parked during this journey. My guess is that within the about next 700+ days we will park in about 250+ different places. Here’s the map so far which you may click on to see in a larger view…

We arrived here yesterday for a ten-day stay, during which time we’ll visit friends in the area.

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a Google Earth image of the resort…

This is not a real-time image. If you look closely on the lower left you can see the image was made June 24, 1992, The units on the left and center are permanent mobile homes. Streets H, I and J are vacant because it’s June. Right now they are mostly full of RV’s like ours. We’re in site I-23 as indicated by the red “X”.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a photo of our site…

 

 

 

 

 

Looking north on I street you can see us as the fourth unit on the left…

 

 

 

After we got settled in, we took a walk around the park to acquaint ourselves with the place. They have a nice book-exchange library so we spent some time finding new books to read. Which then led us to inventorying our current book stash. Mary and I are both avid readers so we have a lot of books ready for exchanging as well as waiting to be read. Mary out-stashes me by a factor of 2 to 1.

 

 

Later in the afternoon we went to the post office to pick up the tabs for the motorhome which had been forwarded to us. Then a visit to my home VFW Post #7968 for a cool beer. In the evening we went to my home Moose Lodge #2039 for a meal.

 

 

 

The park is nice and clean with lots of amenities and activities. It’s also very conveniently located only about one mile from downtown Apache Junction. There are many parks like this one in the Apache Junction area. Many folks spend their entire winter in one warm and sunny location.

The normal daily rate here is $34 a day. Because it is owned by Encore which also owns Thousand Trails RV Resorts of which we are members…we get to stay here for only $3.00 a day. Such a deal!

Yesterday we transited the about 175 miles from Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument to Apache Junction, Arizona….which is about 25 miles east of Phoenix.

 

 

Along the way as we traveled north on Arizona Highway 85 and about 30 miles from Mexico we came across a United States Border Patrol checkpoint.

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About another 30 miles north we came across a second checkpoint…

 

 

 

We passed through both checkpoints with no problems.

 

 

We decided to press on to Apache Junction where we are parked behind Moose Lodge #2039. This in my home Moose Lodge where I joined a number of years ago. I seldom get back here. Last time was two years ago…

 

 

 

 

 

Last night’s sunset wasn’t as pretty as some we have seen recently…

 

 

 

Today we will enter the Golden Sun RV Resort for a ten-day stay during which time we will visit friends in the area.

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Yesterday was partly sunny and 73 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 66 degrees.

Yesterday Mary and I took the Bronco on the Puerto Blanco Drive. It’s 37 miles long, however since 2006, only the north section of the Puerto Blanco Drive has been open to the public, as far as mile 5 (Pinkley Peak, site of a new picnic area) – just past the turn off to Red Tanks Tinaja. The remainder is closed to vehicle traffic ‘indefinitely’ according to the NPS, because of concerns about drug trafficking and illegal cross-border immigration. In addition we took a one mile hike into the desert to view the Red Tank Tinjua…a natural desert rock that collects rainwater. Our outing lasted 2.5 hours.

Yesterday Mary and I took the Bronco on the Ajo Mountain Loop Drive. It’s a 21 mile graded, one-way dirt road. It winds and dips over a route that blends with the primitive nature of the landscape. The visitors center gave us a guide for the drive that features 18 stopping points where you can learn about the desert environment in that area. The drive took us four hours to accomplish with numerous stops to take photographs.

Sand Creek Beach Campground At Salton Sea, California

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 38 miles from Salton to Palm Desert, California where I’m parked at Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort. I expect to be here at least two weeks.

 

I spent the previous night at Sand Creek Beach Campground along the eastern shore of the Salton Sea. The X in the below Google earth image shows the location. California Highway 111 lies atop the San Andreas Fault…

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.
