Vicksburg, Mississippi Day 4 (GA455)

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 Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Conner, Washington. I’ll depart here tomorrow.

 

 

 

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 April 9, 2013…

Note: I’m now expecting to arrive in Memphis around April 14th…. about 250 miles north of Vicksburg. Mary has made her flight reservations. She’ll meet me in Memphis on April 16th.

The motorhome is parked at Moose Lodge #1581. I expect to depart here on Friday

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about seven miles to a one-of-a-kind museum…the USS Cairo is located within the boundaries of the Vicksburg National Military Park. I visited the park in 2007 but just had to revisit the Cairo. Here’s the official website link…

USS Cairo – Vicksburg, Mississippi

The motorhome is currently parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. My current departure date is scheduled for December 1st.

During this time I’ll be attending to my cataract surgery, cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to the motorhome and Bronco in addition to assisting Mary with her activities. None of these items are particularly exciting to write about…so…instead I’ll be showing Picasa Web Albums from our 682 day, 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States. It was Mary’s second circumnavigation and the sixth for myself.

Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily. So come back tomorrow.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Cairo

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

My cataract surgery is scheduled for October 9th at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California.

Yesterday was a sunny day and 82 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 88 degrees.
