Clarksburg, West Virginia (GA495)

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

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’m scheduled to depart here November 7th.

 

 

 

 

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 May 19, 2013…

 

 

 

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 60 miles from Parkersburg to Clarksburg, West Virginia. 99% of the drive was on U.S. Highway 50. Basically a four lane, mostly straight east-bound with lots of ups and downs…

 

 

 

 

 

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…

As we go further east the cities are getting older and the streets narrower. They were not made for a wide-body motorhome. When I drove this street, I barely had room to get past the parked cars…

We parked in an alley next to VFW Post #573…

007

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the usual dinette photo…not exciting. I wondered how many years ago it was built…

After settling in, we went inside for lunch…

During lunch we asked the locals what’s to see and do in Clarksburg. They all replied…not much. It seems the VFW is the hot spot in town. So we decided to walk around a bit and discovered this was the birthplace of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson…a famous Confederate General who stood his ground like a stone wall…hence the name. He died at the Battle of Chancellorsville…

We will move along later this morning.

 

 

Enjoying very friendly VFW Posts is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

Things do not always work out as planned.

 

 

Yesterday I took Mary for a second  acupuncture appointment at 9:30 AM…that part worked out okay. When we returned to the motorhome at VFW Post #10567 at Southaven, Mississippi, I found a note on our door indicating I needed to come inside and talk to the Bartender. She informed me the city had called and said we had stayed too long and that we needed to leave…NOW…or they would be fined. Not wanting that to happen…we left.

 

 

A day earlier than I had planned, I ended up driving the motorhome the about 75 miles east to Thousand Trails Cherokee Landing RV Resort near Saulsbury, Tennessee. We are Thousand Trails members and you can read about this resort by clicking this link…

Through the windshield we have a peek-a-boo view of the small lake…

It’s pretty, peaceful and quiet here. Our current plans are to leave here on Monday. After a hectic week in the Memphis area, we need a bit of a rest.

 

 

Enjoying pretty, peaceful and quiet places is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Southaven, Mississippi Day 9 (GA469)

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 Monroe, Washington. I’m scheduled to depart September 28th.

 

 

 

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 23, 2013…

The motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi. The location is about 1/4 mile south of the Tennessee Border and about 10 miles south of the City of Memphis. We are now expecting to depart on Thursday.

 

 

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about 10 miles to downtown Memphis. First stop was at the famous Peabody Hotel. You can read all about this hotel and the equally famous Peabody Ducks by clicking This Wikipedia link…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peabody_Hotel

 

 

In general, photography conditions were terrible with harsh mid-day sun, dim lighting and deep shadows. Nonetheless here are some of the photos that I took yesterday…

The red carpet has been rolled out in readiness for the 11:00 AM March of the Peabody Ducks. They are brought down from their penthouse suite via elevator and march (actually it was more of a dash) on the red carpet to the fountain where they swim until 5:00 PM and then they are returned to their suite…

035

 

 

 

 

 

The Duckmaster explains the history and tradition of the duck march. You read of it in the above Wikipedia link…

036

 

 

 

 

 

I thought I made a video of this grand event…but when I went to look for it…it wasn’t there. Next time I’ll put on my glasses to make sure I properly push the start video button. Sorry about that! Anyways, here’s the five Mallard Ducks swimming in the fountain…

As I mentioned the ducks come down by elevator…

Mary had another neck painful day yesterday…so we decided to stay home. But she need to make copies of some legal paperwork…so we had to go out for that task.

 

 

First, we went through our closets to identify seldom worn or tight-fitting clothed for donation to Goodwill…

Upon returning and by the end of the day, Mary decided she wanted a second acupuncture treatment and phoned to make an appointment. That’s where we will be at 9:00 AM this morning. She’s hoping that will take care of her neck pain.

 

 

Enjoying seldom seen vehicles  is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Southaven, Mississippi Day 2 (GA462)

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 Monroe, Washington. I’m scheduled to depart September 24th.

 

 

 

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 16, 2013…

The motorhome is now parked at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi. The location is about 1/4 mile south of the Tennessee Border and about 10 miles south of the City of Memphis. We will stay here while we explore the Memphis area for the next several days.

 

 

Mary returns to me today. I’ll meet her at the airport at 6:00 PM.

 

 

Yesterday I ventured less than five miles into Tennessee. I went to the Memphis Visitors Center to pickup maps and brochures for things we may want to see and do while in the area. It’s interesting what happened. Crossing the state line and the slow southern way of life seem to disappear. Back into traffic and noise immediately. Hmmm….

 

 

The below Google Earth image shows my relative location to the Memphis area. The V is the location of VFW Post #10567 where I am currently parked. The red line indicates the Tennessee/Mississippi Border…

Shortly thereafter I was back in Mississippi and spent about three hours going to thrift and used book stores to replenish my dwindling supply of books. I saw something I have never seen before…a Goodwill Bookstore. It’s part of the Goodwill system…but at this store they sell only books. It was neat and clean and all the books are sorted by author which made it very pleasant to shop there. I bought several books…

I forgot to show you a photo I took while at the Delma Firmiss Hospitality Center at Lula, Mississippi a couple of nights ago. It was taken at midnight through the passenger-side windshield. I thought it made for a neat photo…

Today’s activities are expected to include…get a haircut…do laundry and pickup Mary.

 

 

Here’s (I guess) an interesting side note. The On The Road With Jim And Mary Blog has just passed the 2,000 followers mark. Current number is at 2,022. Thanks to all of you who follow along the road of life with us. We enjoy sharing our experiences with you vicariously.

 

 

Here’s another side note…
RVTravel.com publishes several Blogs that offer news, information and tips about the RVing World…all for free! In yesterday’s RV Daily Tips Issue 101, On The Road With Jim And Mary was identified as Website of the Day.

 

 

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