May 24, 2014 - Montague

We held up here for a few days to do some wash and sleep in. Went to bed the first night at about 9:30 and didn't get up until 7:30 the next morning. Larry slept in until 9:30, 12 hours after he went to bed! We left the campground and headed for the nearest Best Buy. It's a good thing we got Geek Service for a year because we've used them a lot. And they are so helpful! I finally figured out how to get my pictures to show up, so if you haven't looked at them and got the write up, you might best go back. We managed to do a Walmart run, and...

Aug 13, 2013 - Day 1 Howard & Cheryl's Great Western Adventure

HOWARD AND CHERYL’S GREAT WESTERN ADVENTURE Tuesday 8/13/13 We left home about 9:30 a.m. and the first stop on our great adventure was to get fresh eggs at a chicken farm nearby. Exciting start, huh? Actually, we didn’t realize it but it probably WAS the most exciting thing to happen that day. We drove through southern Michigan, northern Indiana (Gary area) and Illinois then on to the beautiful state of Iowa the rest of the day. One other “exciting” thing happened that day. Norm and Melita, our neighbors who loaned us the teardrop trailer,...

Western Sojourn

Jun 5, 2013 - Grand Rapids MI

On m'a parlé des villages qui longent le lac Michigan du coté est, je fais donc une réservation a un parc VR a Montague... il est très rudimentaire mais très agréable et serein avec un beau lac et beaucoup d'arbres et de faune locale. Je prends une journée pour explorer les villages et petites villes le long du lac Michigan... Pas impressionné!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sauf la ville de Ludington qui offre plusieurs maisons intéressantes coté architecture. C'est d'ici que l'on peut prendre un traversier pur se rendre a Milwaukee WI... mais pur...

May 6, 2013 - Almost home going to LeClaire, IA. (Pickers place)

Hi everyone, Iowa is a long State to cross to the other side, we were traveling on Hwy. 80 but switched to Hwy 30 which is only a two lane but so much nicer with more to see and no semi's, which was nice because we ran into a couple storms. No Desert or Mountains, just kinda boring. When we got to Le Claire Iowa we stayed that night and went to see where they filmed "The American Pickers" One of our favorite shows. It was cool and we got to go in and look around the Shop and take pictures. We did not see Mike, Frank or Danielle, the stars...

May 2, 2013 - Stayed in Glenwood Springs Co last night, 18 deg. this morning

Hi everyone, Of Course I loved Las Vegas but it really has changed, stayed the night there. Went to take pictures of the pawn shop that the "Pawn Stars" film from. That was cool ! I don't think we have been to Vegas for about 10 years. Of Course, When I lived in Calif. went to Vegas a lot, like in the 1960's & 70's. That 's when it was really a great place to visit because you would see stars gambling in casino's or even on the streets but now everything and everyone is guarded. I will say the best way to visit is to fly in and have Hotel...

Apr 20, 2013 - Holbrook Az. to Needles Ca.

Left Holbrook Az. at 8:00 AM heading west on I40 toward Flagstaff Ariz. We went to Winslow Ariz. and stood on the corner and tried to remember the words to the song. The Mountains and scenery were beautiful coming through the mountains lots of sun and warmth. At one point it was 91-92 degree's. I Love it!!!!! After Flagstaff, We got back on Route 66 and came to a great little town called Williams Ariz. Had Lunch at Route 66 Cruizer's, which was very tasty, it was a 60's neat Cafe with a guy playing guitar and singing the 50's, 60's songs....

Jul 22, 2012 - Moving to township park nearby

Sunday, July 22, 2012 Montague, Michigan We continue to enjoy the milder weather here very much. While we were here at the city park, the weather cooled down into the 70s for several days after being 100 the first of the week. We enjoyed going down to Lake Michigan 3-4 times swimming in the lake. It is probably one of the first years the water has been warm enough to enjoy this early in the summer. One day took a driving tour up to Pentwater to see some friends from our Arizona home, and we also used our kayaks in the White River. Some of...

Jul 19, 2012 - West Michigan

Thursday, July 19 Trailway Campground, Montague, MI Our first real all day of rain since we left Arizona. It is a nice rain too and all of Michigan needs this! It has been in the 90s almost everyday in July so no one is complaining today! We needed this and maybe another one or two to get caught up on some things...it is too much fun going to the beach, kayaking and exploring! We are at the campground we enjoyed two years ago next to the Hart-Montague Bike Trail and very close to Lake Michigan. We have taken several bike rides, including a...
