Blog Highlights

A few months ago, when talking to (texting) Matt, a young friend of mine, he said, “Oh yeah I forgot about the blog! I will check it out.” The blog already had over 150 entries. I’m not sure how much he read, because I didn’t hear from him again. I think it was overwhelming to... Continue Reading →

Ontonagon Township Park

Ontonagon Township Park is a very nice campground right on Lake Superior. Nice sites with electric, clean sites and a nice shower facility. From here are easy day trips into Porcupine Mountains State Park. Jen and I went to Presque Isle to look at the falls. It’s a nice hike with a lot of steps.... Continue Reading →

Indian Lake State Park

Camped at Indian Lake State Park just outside of Manistique Michigan and were treated with a beautiful sky. This park is near Kitch-iti-Kipi (The Big Spring). The spring is really interesting and worth a visit. We are at the south campground. The north campground is closed due to lack of personnel. The campground sites are... Continue Reading →

The Holzhaufen

You may ask what a Holzhaufen has to do with an RV trip. We learned about the Holzhaufen when we were staying at a Harvest Hosts location: the Alaska Botanical Garden in Anchorage. The connection may be a little loose, but there it is. On display at the botanical garden was a round wood pile... Continue Reading →

It’s kind of weird to drive by interesting things and keep on going. For instance, we drove by the Andersonville prison and I had... Continue Reading →

100 Ticks

I'll take no-see-ums over ticks any day. Two days in Michigan and I already had 6 ticks on me. We spend the past two months in Florida battling no-see-ums. No-see-ums are a nuisance but ticks give me the heebie-jeebies  Since returning to Michigan we have found 100 ticks found either on me, Jen, the... Continue Reading →

Day 317: Bokeelia, FL Sunny, breezy, hot. The lovebugs are in season. We took our one last boat ride. Tom already had his fishing pole packed up, so it was just a ride to look around. We saw two small pods of dolphins! One pod was zooming in the water, fishing, I assume. The other... Continue Reading →

Day 316: Bokeelia, FL Cloudy, looks like rain. Had a nice Mother’s Day chat with all four kids! They are looking good. All are still working, two from the home, and two in the military. We started seriously preparing for departure. I did some floor washing and some furniture moving. Tom spent a lot of... Continue Reading →
