Jul 20, 2015 - July 20, 2015 - Fourth Stop - Harrison, MI

Our trip from Angola, MI to Harrison, MI was uneventful except for the crummy roads. Just about as bad as the roads in New England. US 127 was better than the Michigan Interstates. The Countryside Campground is quite nice and we are in a grassy area with only one other trailer. Many of the sites appear to be seasonal and after the weekend, are empty. Thunderstorm just ended and the rain was really heavy, but not much wind. Tomorrow we arrive at the Mackinaw Mill Creek Campground and will stay for 5 nights. A short day of about 140 miles.

Stopped at another visitor center in Mackinaw City. Would love to stay here longer to take a glass bottom boat tour of shipwrecks and ride the ferry to Mackinac Island but when Allen has a destination in mind we don't get off track too much so we continued south. I'm buying postcards and not mailing them. The kids are going to get all the postcards all at one...

The owner was dressed in outdoor lightweight gear from head to toe. There was no skin exposed to the elements. The outside temps were in the high 80's and the humidity was opressive. It made us a little nervous about possible...

Jul 10, 2006 - July 8-10 Harrison, MI

The First Day We got off to a slow start due to visiting, disorganization and missing parts. We were finally moving at 11:00 am only to discover that we had left the auxilliary brake for the jeep behind. So, we had to disconnect the Jeep and drive back to the Apt. to get the brake. The good news is "We found Janet's missing sun glasses on the garage floor next to the brake." An uneventful six hours of driving and 353 miles carried us to the Hidden Hill Campground. The site was perfectly level. It is a nice friendly place. We drove by Dad's...
