After a quick run to the post office in Gillette yesterday we returned to the Cam-Plex, hooked our Ford Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and made ready to get out of Dodge… err Gillette. But first we had to have the requisite goodbye hugs from Greg and Jan, who were also hitting the […]

Getting Naked

We’ve never been to a nudist RV park and I’m pretty sure that’s just as well, because even I don’t like to see me au naturel. I’ve reached the point in life where the mirror is no longer my friend. But I still seem to spend a lot of time getting naked. Years ago my […]

By yesterday morning there were only a handful of RVs left at the Mercer County Fairgrounds, and several of those left by mid-day. Mike and Elaine Loscher were the first to pull out, headed for Elkhart, Indiana to get some service done on their Winnebago Class A motorhome. Soon after Mike and Elaine left, Ron […]

We have had a population explosion of mosquitoes here in Elkhart this summer. We’ve been coming here to Elkhart Campground for years, and I don’t ever remember them being so numerous or so hungry. I have heard about a million and one ways to keep the bloodthirsty little parasites at bay, and trust me, none […]
