We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 140 mile trip back to Elkhart, Indiana. Since Terry put away a lot of stuff inside the motorhome the night before, we had time to do everything else that needed done at a leisurely pace. Fisherman’s Landing in Muskegon, Michigan only has RV sites with […]

When we arrived at Elkhart Campground in early June we were told that a big RV rally was scheduled for the third week of August and the entire place was sold out. That wasn’t a problem for us because whenever were in this part of the country we always come up to Muskegon, Michigan to […]

Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, and knitting. You name it and she does it. So she was really looking forward to the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan this weekend. Allegan is about 90 miles from Elkhart Campground, and we got there about 11 a.m. We were only a few steps inside […]

We woke up to the sound of thunder yesterday morning, and a little after noon another storm rolled through Elkhart Campground, bringing more water to the already saturated ground. A week or so ago local farmers were worried that if they did not get some rain soon they might lose much of their corn crop. […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we have been getting a lot of rain here in northern Indiana. But even the weatherman on the 11 PM news on Monday didn’t know how much we were going to get. They were predicting up to three inches, but the storm was just getting started by then. Depending […]

How Hot Is It?

A heat wave has been baking the upper Midwest, with temperatures here in northern Indiana in the 90s. Every newscast is warning people to be sure to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid strenuous activity whenever possible. So how hot is it? Yesterday I saw two trees fighting over a dog. But don’t take […]

One of the things I’ve enjoyed at our site here at Elkhart Campground is that we are right next to the dog park, which means I get to meet a lot of friendly critters and get my puppy fix on a regular basis. Dogs and cats make fine pets for RVers, and we have known many […]

There Are Benefits

Let’s be honest, when it comes to friends, I’m pretty high maintenance. Especially if you know anything about maintaining anything mechanical. Just ask my buddy Greg White. Years ago his wife Jan mentioned that he could fix just about anything, and 24 hours later I had him standing in a pool of cold water on […]

Today’s blog is going to be more show than tell because I’ve got some really neat old RVs to show you today! The Northern Indiana Vintage Trailer Rally is going on here at Elkhart Campground, and yesterday Miss Terry and I, along with our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel, spent most of the afternoon wandering […]

With the big vintage RV rally here at Elkhart Campground this week, when our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel came to town there were no sites available. No problem, they found one at the Shipshewana North Park Campground, a short drive east of us in Shipshewana. For those not familiar with this part of northern […]
