gone fishing

View from the hilltop

We spent the last week in Canada fishing and hiking. We met Stacy and Carrie there and had a ball. The bad thing was there was no internet but it was fun. We worked our way through Michigan staying in casino lots and Walmarts most of time. Driving across the Mackinac Bridge was a real treat in the MH for the first time. Pretty scary!! Stopped at the Soo Locks to watch the boats go through, then over the Soo Bridge into Canada. Fishing was not real great because of the weather changes but we caught enough to eat. The girls and we went for a 7 mile hike up a mountain to the "view from the hilltop". One day we went geo chaching, found 3 of the four we went after. Did a lot of hiking that day. Our little boat did a good job with the 4 horse motor we bought on the way up. Caught fish evey day, just not many. We had our mail sent there and had to stick around for it to get there. We were planning to leave on Saturday, the mail got there Monday about 2 PM. As soon as we got it we hit the road back to the States. Pulled into Troy, Ohio Wendesday afternoon. We will be here till time to go to the Escapees rv rally in Van Wert, Oh.
That's it for now.

Mowing the field.

This is a clock tower at Greenfield Village, the men ring the bell.

We're on the move again!! We had everything fixed on the coach that we had signed up for and took off for Michigan. Spent the first night in Cabela's parking lot, it's free!! Then we were off to Ypsilanti, Mi to a KOA camp ground. It was real nice but real expensive. Stayed there for 3 nights while we went to the Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. We spent from 9:30 till 5:00 walking and looking both days, boy were we tired. The bad news is my camera went haywire and I had to send it back to the company for repairs. I still my old camera so I can still take pictures. Friday we left for parts north. Stopped at a Flying J for the night. They have wifi here so I get things done that need to be done on the net. We are working our way to Canada as slowly as we can. Have to be there Aug 19 so we have a few days to hit some other sights. Going to stop at Mackinaw City and then Mackinac Island for a few days of sight seeing.

That's it for now
