Clarksville, Tennessee – Day 2

The motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #4895. Heavy rains are forecast for today so we are now planning to depart tomorrow.

Yesterday I spent part of the morning researching our future possible routes and things to see and do as we continue our travels towards New England. Then I took Mary to the recycle center so she coud continue saving the earth. On the way back to the motorhome we stopped at a used bookstore and found they were having a going-out-of-business sale. I bought 23 books for $.50 each. Such a deal!

In the afternoon Mary had a professional massage and says she had a good night’s sleep and is feeling somewhat better this morning. She and I continue to deal with aches and pains from the May 27th accident of last year.

After her massage we went to the Custom House Museum and Cultural Center. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures 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!

Albuquerque, New Mexico – Day 1

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 50 miles from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, New Mexico. The motorhome is now parked at the Sandia Casino about 10 miles north of Albuquerque. I usually do not park at casinos, but I’ve met up with some friends who are here.

I was in Albuquerque for about three weeks earlier this past spring. There are somethings that can only be found in Albuquerque in New Mexico such as a Costco, a Workhorse Chassis Dealer for the motorhome and the only good used book store in the state. I expect to be in the area for a few days.

There are better than 100 RV’s parked here because of the annual balloon fiesta. Here are some views from the parking lot…

I always like to show the view from the dinette window. My friend Randy’s trailer is on the left and his friend Laurie’s is on the right…

Stepping outside on the passenger side you can see the casino in the background…

A 180 degree panorama of that side…

A view to the rear shows the Sandia Mountains in the background…

The balloon fiesta headquarters are a few miles south of the casino and since the fiesta ends today, they had some fireworks last night to celebrate the ending. My camera has a fireworks setting but I’m still so new to my camera I couldn’t remember how to find it, so I shot the following photos in the night setting. In addition you should really use a tripod for fireworks but I was too lazy to get it out. These photos are hand-held. This is the first time I’ve shot fireworks with my new camera…

Enjoying good friends and fireworks is another joy of a full-time RVer!
