Duffer

Day 9

1st Golf in Six Months

2:29pm:
I've just now returned from a round of golf. There has been no golfing for me since last May!

I played with my new Divkin golf club. Do you want to know my score? It's 111 for 18 holes!!

5:08pm:
Exhausted!
After my 2:29pm Blog post, I went to the nearby Von's grocery to pick up some needed things. On the way back to Scampy, I realized that I was sooooo tired. Actually, not tired. I had become exhausted! I'd run out of energy.

There is an upper parking lot at the nearby 24 Hour Fitness Club in the City of La Mesa. It's quiet up there in that lot. I just finished a nice nap there. I feel much better now.

6:09pm:
Dear Readers,
There have been a few comments recently here in my Blog, that question the value of my RVing experience as shared in my Blog during my early RVing years. These comments [All from one commenter] find it impossible to understand how things were with RVers way back then.

Back in February, 2003 when I first began RVing, there were no RVing Bloggers. The reason for this lack of Bloggers in the RVing world was because Google had only bought Blogger that very same month!

My self dedicated mission when I began my Blog in May, 2003, was to be of service to my fellow RVers. I accomplished this mission in two ways:
1. By answering how-to-do questions on the RV.NET Forum.
2. By sharing stuff about RVing in my Blog and my published stories.

I was out there RVing all over the Western United States and publishing what I was doing in my Blog. People wanted to be doing what I was doing.

That is why many RVers now claim that I was largely responsible for many of them becoming RVers. They learned about RVing from reading my Blog.

Examples:
➜ Back then, levelers for RVs were quite crude. I installed one of those early levelers on MsTioga and wrote about those levelers in my Blog [Link].

➜ Back then, most RVers had never even considered using solar panels on their RVs. I installed solar panels on MsTioga 's roof and wrote about that in my Blog as well. I also published a story about my solar electric system in MsTioga Magazine [Link].

I'm not looking for credit for what happened. Not looking for notoriety either. Just don't want folks taking pot-shots at me for what Readers write about me in their claims that they owe me for their getting to be RVers themselves.

Respectfully,
George



11:45pm:
La Mesa Nite Camp
After working out at the 24 Hour Fitness in the City of La Mesa, I made a Nite Camp here in La Mesa too.

The temperature here in La Mesa is 58℉. Compare that to the temperature up north in Beaverton, Oregon where we spent the Summer. It's 31℉ in Beaverton right now. Brrrr!

    1. R&B,

      I loved that little golf club!

      I chose for my club length to be the same as a 7-iron. This is a club length that is much easier to control, compared to driver.

      My club head is very easy to adjust to different angles. It goes from Putter to Sand Wedge!

  2. Wow. Good for you George! I am a terrible golfer. So bad, that I don't enjoy it. Best part of golfing was when the beer cart girl would show up.

    1. Hi Kevin,

      I understand how you feel. However, in every round of golf that I play, I have some shots that show me that someday I may be able to get my score down to the 80s.

      Every time that I go to hit the ball, I feel that it will be a perfect shot. I'm a very optimistic guy!

  3. I am one of those people inspired by your blog. When I found it, I started from the beginning and worked my way through your adventures to the point where you lost your son, then your friends in Mexico. You have gone through a lot and shared it all. Thanks for doing that. It was a long and very interesting novel, of sorts.

  4. George, I began reading your blog back in 2004, and learned so much from you. You did, indeed, inspire me to become a Vagabonder Supreme......just like you. Just prior to beginning our nomadic journey we had solar panels installed on our Class A motorhome, and love being able to boondock far from civilization. You were our inspiration, and you continue to inspire us even today!

  5. I have been with you from the beginning and even when you lost your laptop in Israel. Places like that and others I also have visited and always enjoyed your views and perspective on the land and the people. Also I am older than you George and just recently sold our RV but still stay in touch with those I have enjoyed on RV net and others..Best of luck to you George.

  6. Was interested in your golf club and did a search and couldn't find any info on it. Turns out you misspelled it. Its actually Divnick. I was afraid the company went under. Going to look into it, sounds like a great idea.

  7. I too have been inspired by you George. I have virtual coffee with you in my RV every morning. It's 56 here in Yuma this morning. Pass the donuts!! Steve
