Our stay in Macinaw City ended with 18 holes of golf on a course that was less challenging than what we had experienced in Lawsonia two weeks ago, but provided lots of opportunities for losing balls beneath the trees and brush. We had fun, but struggled to implement the lessons we thought we had learned at golf camp. We met a pro who said it took him 14 years of constant practice to master the game. Only nine more years to go!
Now we face a few days taking care of business. But before we got down to the business of traveling 250 miles to get our motor home chassis serviced, we had a wonderful visit from neighbors who noticed they were within a few miles of us visiting family. They stopped by with breakfast treats in hand and great conversation. We could have talked much longer, but they were headed home and we were supposed to be here at Spartan by 4pm. It rained almost the entire drive and when the sun came out we missed the pleasant temperatures of the UP. It is hot and humid here and spending tomorrow in the customer lounge will be less annoying when it's not nice outside.
We are surprised to see how many other motor coaches are also here at Spartan; some look a lot like us. We exchanged home tours with a neighbor whose coach is exactly as old and the same color as ours. They had a different floor plan and we each have made modifications that suit our needs. It made the familiar feel slightly unfamiliar.
We have to be up and out of bed by 7am for the tech to pick up our motor home and get started. Works starts early in the summer to escape the worst of the summer heat. Here's hoping that we can get in and out of the service bay in one day as scheduled and the technicians don't find a problem to fix.
