Aug 3, 2019 - On the Road again!

It was a close call, but we actually left home on August 1st as planned. Between work (that four letter word), our parents, and issues with getting the RV inspected (as in six new tires needed), we really thought we'd have to delay the trip. But, we scrambled and managed to leave when planned. The first day, we (Bob) drove 374 miles! We arrived at Shenango River Lake around 6:30 p.m. but, it was worth the drive. This is a wonderful corps of engineers park in Pennsylvania about four miles from Youngstown, Ohio, in Sharon, PA. We've stayed...

Apr 18, 2019 - Mike and his Roots

We can tell we are back into the Great Lakes region, with major weather systems moving through, one after another. We woke up before the rain began, but by the time we checked our mail and had breakfast a quick and heavy downpour had rolled through. With a pause in the rain, Mike ran out and disconnected everything, so we could finish breakfast in a relaxed mode and not long after we were off. The GPS always gives you a choice of multiple ways to drive and originally we were looking at the quickest way to Frankenmuth, but since the weather...

Winter In Phoenix

Aug 24, 2017 - Total (almost) Eclipse of the Sun

Greetings from Frankenmuth, Michigan! After our fun filled weekend in Port Sanilac attending the vintage RV/Trailer/Boat rally we needed a little “down time” to rest, relax and catch up. That was the major reason we came here but also to find a place to watch the eclipse away from the craziness that all the news was reporting. One of our fellow vintage friends told us about this town and a nice campground that is owned by the local Lutheran church…..St. Lorenz campground is beautiful and close to the town. Frankenmuth was founded in 1845...

Jun 28, 2017 - St. Ignace to Frankenmuth and visit with Tawnie

We left this morning around 8:10, heading to Frankenmuth, Michigan. We drove over the huge Mackinac Bridge. The toll was $10. Even though we are small for an RV, the width caused us to pay the RV price as opposed to $4 for a van. We decided to take the back roads instead of the interstate as it was very windy, so we drive slower. We went through the Ausable state forest which was in the Clinton Township. There was even an Ausable River like at home. The roads were good most of the time. Part of the time, they rolled up and down repeatedly....

Jul 22, 2016 - Frankenmuth

We have enjoyed visiting with family and exploring Frankenmurth. Nice boat ride out to the bay with my cousin on her boat Leslie's Inheritance. Time with cousins that I have not seen in a very long time. Heading north tomorrow for a few days, then Ann Arbor on the weekend before pointing the rig south and west toward home. Our route from Niagara Falls area to Michigan took us across western Ontario and to the shore of Lake Huron. We stayed at a huge campground that in reality was a trailer park and spot for seasonal campers. They did not...

Jun 25, 2016 - Flint, MI

Today we visited Flint, MI - The birthplace of General Motors, and the home of Buick. We went to the Sloan Museum, which is at Applewood, The C.S. Mott Estate. It just so happened that today was the 44th Annual Sloan Museum Auto Fair. WOW, hundreds of antique automobiles were on display. Not just cars, but also motorcycles, tractors, fire trucks, and police cars. One special vehicle of note was a 1940 Buick Pickup. Only 4 of these pickup trucks were made and all were kept and used for utility service at the Buick plant. This was the largest...

Today we are camped about 15 miles south of Saginaw, MI near the small town of Frankenmuth. Frankenmuth is known as Little Bavaria.

They have provided walking paths and plenty of benches under beautiful shade trees so people can sit and visit and enjoy the hospitality of the town....

2016 RV Trip

Aug 18, 2015 - Frankenmuth, MI

Aug 18 - We are In no hurry to get up this morning. After eating breakfast at the hotel we walked down town in search of the Bavarian Belle River boat. This 1 hr boat trip down the Cass River gave us a lot of information about the town and surrounding area. The 1 hr cost $12 per person. Susan saw chocolate covered bacon in a cupcake store and bought it to try. No, it was terrible!! Lunch was at the Bavarian Inn where I had the small Caparese Salad. After lunch we walked back to the hotel to get the car as it was too far to walk to Bronners...

Early to rise today as we have along way to drive. Leaving at 7:30am Susan and Julie did all the driving as I was tired from the day before and no sleep. We are traveling North on I 75 with our 1st stop exit 186 at McDonald's for coffee in Cincinnati, Oh. A site to behold was when we opened the door of the ladies room at McDonalds there stood a lady with her pants pulled down, bent over, her underwear showing, adjusting a bandage on her leg. OH Please!!! Continuing north on I 75 we stopped for gas in Pequa, Oh and paid $2.85 per gal. along...

From Alpena to Frankenmuth we traveled longer than we have for a while with a 3 hour drive. We've been enjoying our shorter drive days as we've toured Michigan, as it's much more relaxing. We drove through a lot of farm land on the way to I-75 and then turned south. We're staying in Birch Run which is a town just outside Frankenmuth, which is a VERY touristy stop. We found a very quiet yet large RV park with grass at all the sites. Although we've enjoyed our trip, this year we've spent more time in real campgrounds with lots of kids and WAY...

Jul 16, 2014 - Frankenmuth, MI

We arrived in Frankenmuth on Friday, July 11th and stayed here 6 nights at the Jellystone RV Park. It is an ideal location because it is very near to all the places we wanted to go. Sandy, Clarence, Doug and I went to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. It is just a quarter of a mile down the road from the campground. It is the largest Christmas store in the world. It was founded in 1945 by Wally Bronner and is open 361 days a year and has over 2 million visitors annually. The Alpine design building is the size of 5 1/2 football fields on 27...
