Jun 26, 2015 - Camp Grayling, Michigan

We had not intended to stay in Grayling. I was hoping to get into a state park on Lake Michigan. However, I called too late to get anywhere in the area we were headed - hence Camp Grayling! Camp Grayling is the largest National Guard training camp in the U.S. It is huge. Grayling offers excellent fly fishing, kayaking, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. A "grayling" is actually a native fish though they are not found locally anymore. The last time we were in Michigan was when we were on the boat, coming down Lake Michigan. From the...

Aug 7, 2013 - Grayling, Michigan

Left: Van Riper State Park, Michigan Arrived: Hartwick Pine State Park, Michigan This morning we were the area of Michigan they call the Upper Pennisula and this evening we are in the area called the Lower Pennisula. What we have seen of Michigan is beautiful, lovely forests and both evergreen and decidious trees, some of the decidious trees are starting to turn already. To get to lower Michigan from upper Michigan you must drive over the MacKinaw bridge. The bridge is the third longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere and...

Oct 22, 2011 - After relaxing a few days, it's off to the reunion

Keith and Cathy were excellent hosts while we recharged our batteries, but today we are off the the reunion, back to paying for places to sleep. Best meal of the trip was still the steaks the first night at Keith's. Not too long a drive to the hotel outside of Novi where Tina went to high school. Got dressed up and out we went. Tina was disappointed that all the Facebook friends didn't show, but lots of people she knew were there and we spent much of the night there. One of her classmate brought her Damon Outlaw, the RV from Damon with the...

May 21, 2011 - Grayling, Michigan

We left Burlington this morning and rode hard to the US border. It’s May long weekend (as you all know) and so therefore we hit some awfully long line-ups at the border. Thankfully we have our Nexus cards, and rode right up to customs, with only about 10 cars ahead of us. The rest of the peons were lined up right across the bridge on the other side of Sarnia. The rest of the trip was hot and tiring, and we called it a day after 600 Km. We got a hotel room in Grayling, Michigan, and went out for supper. It’s 7:15 pm and 77 F here in Grayden....

Aug 22, 2008 - August 22nd & 23rd...one more day...HOME!

August 22nd…Friday. We were able to get a early start on the days’ drive; 9:30 a.m., which is early for us! We entered into the state of Minnesota a few minutes after getting onto I-90 east. Our GPS read 820 or so miles left of our journey. The scenery began to change, drastically. Corn began to grow everywhere. Milking cows were abundant. The dry grass of South Dakota’s landscape changed to green tree covered hills with large diary farms. Dark blue and silver silos were popping up everywhere. It reminded Bob & I of certain areas in...

Bonkoski’s Alaskan Trip Journal 2008 Sorry for the delay regarding this travel journal; we've been driving for over 11 days, and just arrived in Alaska, last evening; June 16th. We NOW HAVE INTERENT! Our Alaska family trip of a lifetime begins a day or so behind schedule; however, once we got going, all seemed to smooth itself out. Additionally, the further west we drive, the more interesting our photos and this journal will become! June 3rd, 8:00 a.m., was our scheduled time and date of departure. Our 40’ Alfa motorhome, with our tow...

Oct 7, 2007 - Home at Last

We arrived home safe and sound on Friday, Oct. 5, around 5 P.M. It is nice to be home, although I don't think either one of us was particularly antsy to get home. We are so comfortable at Tim's that is like being at home. I must admit that I was a bit nervous to actually hook up and get going because of the problem we had with the trailer brakes. Oops, I just realized that I forgot to write about that little problem in this journal. I'll keep it brief. Shortly after we got to Maine, Michael was doing little repairs on the trailer, and one...

Aug 18, 2007 - Camp Grayling, Michigan

Carla here--I thought I'd let you know that we're in northern Michigan enjoying the great, cool weather. It has been in the 70s during the day and the 50s at night. Last night is was in the 40s! Our campground is in the woods, close to Lake Margrethe (.1 of a mile). The kids and Pete are going canoeing today; I'm staying at the trailer to sew new window shades for the trailer. Next week we are going to canoe the many rivers around here and on Friday we're going to Mackinac Island for the fudge festival. Next Sunday we head back to the Indy...
