Aug 12, 2019 - Wakefield Sunday River

We are in a convenient RV park run by the city of Wakefield. Our spot is OK but the spot 48 would have been better. I spoke to the camp manager before we came and this is where he put us. We are across from the shower house and the morning we are leaving there are city work trucks blocking us - they moved. So the facilities are well kept and the campground is occupied by some long timers. Coming in we missed the turn to the park as there is the name Sunday River on it as well, got turned around OK and I'm glad I printed the layout as the...

Aug 14, 2018 - Time to Leave the Keweenaw

Our stay on the Keweenaw Peninsula came to an end on Tuesday. Our route follows US 41 which begins in Copper Harbor. There’s a road sign in town that indicates Miami, the southern terminus, is 1990 miles. If it were a little later in the year, it might be a good idea to head to the other end of the highway. Instead we’ll be traveling west to Minnesota and the North Shore of Lake Superior. When I planned this trip back in March and April, I had booked RV parks for all but this week. We were going to go to the Apostle Islands, but I couldn’t...

Aug 28, 2014 - Wakefield, MI

We left around 9:00 this morning having no idea where we would stay. We crossed the bridge turned west and went about 25 per cent of the way across along the shores of Lake Michigan. We then headed north to get on Highway 28 and then west along the shores of Lake Superior. It was very sunny and the roads were great although speed limit was 55 mpr. We normally only drive around 62 anyway so it was not a big deal. This was suppose to be a scenic route but once again the scenery was trees and more trees with small glimpses of the lake. The...

Jun 11, 2014 - Wakefield, MI - The Largest Ski Run In the Western Hemisphere

(Ron Writing) We had a another busy and fun day. This morning we went to see the largest ski run, and the only ski flying run in the Western Hemisphere. Ski Flying is sort of like Ski Jumping on steroids. There are just a few of the most elite ski jumpers in the world that are able to participate in this sport. Copper Peak was built in the 1970’s but was de-sanctioned for ski flying in the 1990’s. By then the competitors' jumps had improved so much that this facility did not provide a long enough landing zone area. There were also changes...

Jun 30, 2011 - Back in the U.S.

Today we continued west on Canada's route 17 to Sault Ste. Marie. There we crossed back into the U.S. over the waterway and locks between of Lake Superior and Lake Huron. We waited more than 1/2 hour to get through customs, most of time waiting on the bridge over the canal and locks. In Michigan we went west on highway 28, we stopped and walked on the beach and relaxed for a while near Munising. A couple hours later we again took a break and walked a ways to see Agate Falls. We drove a little over 400 miles and stopped about 7:00 PM today...
