Dec 7, 2016 - From Michigan to Uranus

Jun 9, 2006 - Boiling Spring Campground

We findly got back on the road. The first night we stayed in a out of the way campground,called Boiling Spring.

Sure enough on a curve we meet a car and he had to backup and off the road so I could get by, the entrance to the campground was marked by a small sign, there was little more than a cow path with some gravel and the first part was a little steep, about a quarter of a mile back in there you come to the camp host trailer and a nice...
