The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Turtle Beach RV Resort in Manteca, California. I’m scheduled to depart here April 17th.

 

 

 

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.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 68 miles from Malta to Chinook, Montana.

 

 

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

 

 

Mid-morning it looked like we were going to get involved with a thunderstorm, but it never did develop…

Arriving at Chinook, we parked in a small lot across an alley adjacent to VFW Auxiliary Post 4620, which was closed…

Once we got set up, we walked a couple of blocks to the Blaine County Museum. I just love the old black and white photographs and color paintings in these museums which show what life was like in days long ago and never to return.. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Yesterday was an okay weather day. High 70’s, cloudy with humidity. Today’s forecast is 82 and sunny.

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 97 miles from Culbertson to Glasgow, Montana.

 

 

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

 

 

With less than a mile behind us, we ran into a major road rebuilding of Highway 2 that ran about 10 miles…

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

This entry was posted September 4, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 117 miles from Crookston, Minnesota to Devils Lake, North Dakota.

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

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…

 

 

 

 

 

Highway 2 traffic continues to be light…

DSC05702

 

 

 

 

 

Places like these are seen occasionally along the way…

DSC05701

 

 

 

 

 

Just east of Devils Lake we gassed up and I saw my first flex-fuel pump…

DSC05704

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a closer look at the five fuel selections that are available…

DSC05705

 

 

At this same station we propaned-up for only $1.39 a gallon. It’s been a long time since I’ve run across propane so reasonably priced!

 

 

 

 

 

I have a good friend named Randy Vining. He didn’t tell me he owns an oil company…  🙂

DSC05706

 

 

I do not want to call Devils Lake an unattractive place…I’ll simply say I cannot understand why anyone would knowingly live here.

 

 

 

 

 

The Elks Club was closed, so we swung by the VFW which has a very small parking lot, so we parked on railroad property across the street…

DSC05707

 

 

 

 

 

Mary wanted to visit the only museum in town…the old Post Office Museum, which we got to by walking a portion of the two blocks away in this alley…

DSC05708

 

 

The museum was a guided tour which I found very boring. Anything worth photographing was either under glass or shiny plastic making for difficult reflections. The heat and humidity were too much for me, so I left Mary to complete her tour of the museum and I retreated to the VFW air-conditioned lounge for a couple of cold Miller Lites. Mary finally joined me. We decided the better place to park for the night was back at the Elks Club.

 

 

 

 

 

Upon arrival there we found out the Elks Club is not open on Tuesday. The nice folks at the next door Nite Owl Lounge told us we could park there for the night and even provided us with an electrical outlet so we could run our air-conditioning without having to run our generator…

DSC05713

 

 

While the motorhome cooled down, we went into the Nite Owl lounge for about an hour for a couple more cold ones. We had a nice conversation with the owner Mary Lou.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…

Not everyplace we visit is a Shangrila!

 

 

You can read about Devils Lake by clicking this Wikipedia link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devils_Lake,_North_Dakota

 

 

Yesterday was a lousy weather day. 87 degrees with high humidity. Today’s forecast is for 79 degrees. Next two-day forecast is 92 and 94 degrees. YUKKITTY!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying electrical plug-ins so we can have air-conditioning on a hot day is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The area is thinly populated. We passed through only a few small towns like this one..

We arrived just before noon in Crookston and parked alongside the railroad tracks behind the VFW…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.

 

 

 

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 1, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 85 miles from Superior, Wisconsin to Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

 

 

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

 

 

The day started with a beautiful sunrise at Superior, Wisconsin as seen from my dinette seat in the motorhome…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

Being a Labor Day Weekend Saturday, the traffic along Route 2 was heavier than usual…

011

 

 

 

 

 

We wanted to park in the center of Grand Rapids, but they do not allow overnight parking on any city streets. So, being a Wells Fargo customer, I asked the manager if we could park in his lot as he was closing at noon and he said okay…

018

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…not much to look at…but it’s free!!!

014

 

 

 

 

 

Looking towards the rear of the motorhome a flag is located over the rear entrance to the American Legion…

024

 

 

 

 

 

Looking forward the building on the left of the alley is the backside of the VFW…

021

 

 

While Mary wandered through some of the local shops, I spent the afternoon reading.

 

 

 

 

 

To leave, I have to maneuver the motorhome through this alley. If I coat the sides of the motorhome with Vaseline, I might just make it…

026

 

 

Too hot again yesterday with temperatures in the mid 80’s and 72% humidity.

 

 

A late afternoon thunderstorm lowered the temperature somewhat. At 5:30 AM this morning it was 64 degrees with 76% humidity. I received a comment that one person is getting tired of my use of the word YUK to describe my feelings about the weather. How about YUKITTY?  🙂

 

 

As a side note…Grand Rapids is the birthplace of Judy Garland. If you have forgotten who she was…here’s a Wikipedia link to refresh your memory… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_garland

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

 

 

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

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!

Hurley, Wisconsin (GA594)

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.
To view past blogs, scroll to the bottom of this page and use the menu.
I’m currently in my 24th 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 Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 19th.

 

 

 

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 August 29, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 85 miles from Iron Mountain, Michigan to Hurley, Wisconsin.

 

 

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West. Because this is a very thinly populated area, the traffic was very light…

Arriving in Hurley, Wisconsin, we parked at VFW Post #1580. The place was closed and no one showed up during our stay…

Directly across the street, we visited the Hurley Iron County Museum. Here are some of the photos that I took…

Mary bought three rugs from the ladies in the weaving room. Here’s the museum’s official website link… http://ironcountymuseum.org/

 

 

Yesterday was another horrendous weather day…94 degrees with high humidity. Another scorcher is forecast for today.. 86 degrees with a real feel of 95. At 5:00 AM this morning it was 68 degrees with 76% humidity. Good temperature…lousy humidity. YUK!

 

 

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.
