Oct 9, 2011 - Last Days in Clarkston

We had a fantastic time in Clarkston visiting the Pambid clan. We definitely kept busy on this trip, even though Aunt Carol had a cold and I (Marc) caught a cold. The last few days were spent: shopping at Whole Foods (you can have a glass of wine while shopping at this store), Great Lakes Mall, and Karl's Golf Shop (got some really cool new shoes); cruising the lake that Mark and Billie live on; nursing a cold while watching Nebraska come back and beat Ohio State; golfing at Pine Knob with Mark, and having a final dinner of Chinese food...

Great weather today, but I caught a cold that hit me in the afternoon. Finally had a Coney, which is one of the most popular Michigan foods. You can't go a mile thru a town without seeing a coney dog sign. Pete's coney's were excellent (steamed bun, mustard, chili, dog and perfectly chopped onions). Went to the Elk's for a good dinner.

As usual I was going 70 mph in the slow lane and getting passed by everyone...

Oct 3, 2011 - Holly-Clarkston, MI

Short drive into Michigan today. The KOA campground sounded good in the book, but this is probably the worst one we have been in, though there are nice trees and no highway noise. The sites are very unlevel (not a problem for our air leveling system though), extremely narrow road (I avoid any damage), no sewer hookups, no WIFI, and no cable. Fortunately I moved to the next site over so we could get satelite. It'll do for what we need. Went to a nice dinner at Red Knapp's in Clarkston with three of the relatives, excellent burger. We need to...
