Jun 9, 2014 - Ludington, MI

Next, before we stop in Petoskey for a month, is a short stop in Ludington, MI. Not much to report here, but Stephanie is adamant that the map in the blog shows it. While we were here, the folks felt like summer arrived, as the temperature was in the sixties. We felt like it was a grand winter day in AL, GA, or SC. Actually, Ludington is a quaint town on the shores of Lake Michigan and is kind of a summer haven with a grand marina and city park on the lake. A tidbit: the lake is 60 miles wide and the ferry takes 4 hours to cross to Manitowoc,...

Jun 29, 2013 - Ludington and ready for the cruise

Today we drove west, across country to Ludington, Mi, on the shores of Lake Michigan. Tomorrow morning we are booked on the SS Badger for our cruise across the lake to Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Tonight we are at Vacation Station, a very nice resort, with concrete pads and large sites. We have enjoyed a nice walk around the park and are now settling in to watch the NASCAR race in Kentucky, although I think there is a chance of a rain-out. the sun is shining bright tonight, after a cloudy day. A nice change from all the rain yesterday.

Jul 22, 2012 - Let's Go to Ludington

Move day today. We probably could have stayed a little longer in Muskegon and found things to do but we decided to move on north to Ludington. It was an easy drive of 49 miles and we even stopped at a rest stop. We were mostly killing time because the RV park we were going to has a 2 o’clock check-in time….way too late for us. When we arrived, the RV’s were lined out along the road waiting to check in. This is a really busy campground and it is huge. Families are out in droves around here for summer vacation. Joe stayed with the rig and I...

Sep 9, 2011 - Ludington to Wisconsin Dells

Thursday, Sept 8th - Today was a long day of travel. Lost time because of two of our exits being closed due to accidents on the QEW and then missed a turn onto another route.

Dinner in the hotel restaurant and then back to our rooms for some R&R to get ready for an early start tomorrow. Friday, Sept 9th- Had to be at the ferry docks for 8:00 so we met for our continental breakfast in the lobby at 7:00; had...

Aug 12, 2011 - Getting ready for the Cruise Ship to Wisconsin

Traveled off the beaten trail to Ludington, Michigan. Instead of following the Map-Quest route on the Interstate 75, we worked our way down the coast of Lake Michigan to Ludginton. It was a beautiful day again, stopped couple places along the way for lunch or other types of breaks. Cindy made friends with the "lake" gulls rather quickly after we had lunch in a beautiful city park on the way to Ludington, as you may see in the photos. Also officially affixed the "MI" sticker to the bumper of Lucy. We arrived about 4 PM, and into the heated...

Sep 20, 2010 - Ludington, MI

Our first night out we stayed in Ludington, Michigan. We are going to take a car ferry across Lake Michigan to Manitowoc, Wisconsin. They loaded a good many big rigs on the boat along with all the passenger cars and pickups. The vehicles are loaded into the belly of the beast. As luck would have it, the wind was blowing a pretty good clip during the 60 mile, 4 hour vogage making the Lake a bit rough. Many people on board were getting sick (Cheryl included). We decided after this ride that perhaps we might not want to take an ocean cruise...

Aug 8, 2010 - Poolside With a Nephew and Niece

We awoke on Sunday morning to a storm with thunder and lighting. It didn't last too long and we headed south to Caledonia, Michigan just outside of Grand Rapids. We're nicely parked near the barn in the back of Bob and Julie Spoolstra's home. They are our nephew and niece and returned about a year ago from six years as missionaries in Ecuador. We hadn't seen them since 2003. That meant a lot of enjoyable moments talking about what has happened in our lives, learning about their projects on their house and how our the economy is affecting...

WE WILL SPEND A FEW DAYS IN WISCONSIN AND THEN ITS TIME TO HEAD BACK TO INDIANA. I CANNOT STOP THINKING HOW LUCKY DAN AND I ARE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CAMP AROUND AMERICA.

Aug 11, 2007 - Ludington Wedneday August 8

We got to Ludington and went to the state park so we could visit the Big Sabal Point Lighthouse, believe it or not; we were turned away, no place to park the MH. They said the Lighthouse was about a two mile walk from the park, but we had to park in another area that was "ONLY" a mile from the park, uhh that would be 3 miles from the lighthouse, so guess what, you won't be seeing a picture on my updates of the Big Sabal Point Lighthouse. So, we parked just outside the park and climbed up on top of the MH and I took pictures of Lake Michigan...
