Tuesday August 2, 2011-Moving Day-Newberry KOA to Dan and Karen's house

We woke this morning with not too much to do to be ready to leave, since we hadn't gotten much out from moving yesterday. By the way, no one came into the site we left, but I didn't ask why. Perhaps they had to cancel late, after we had already moved. It doesn't really matter.

We decided to go down and eat one more breakfast here in the park. While there, we met another couple from New Jersey that were staying here in the park. We had a nice chat with them during breakfast and gave them some pointers of places to see while they are here. We went into the office and settled our bill with Scott the manager, and were soon at work finishing packing up. It started to rain pretty hard while I was walking the doggies and before I got all my outside things packed away I was pretty well soaked to the skin. It continued to rain on us off and on until we were almost to Dan and Karen's house in Limestone MI. We found their house with little problem and Dan directed me on backing in. It was good to finally meet them in person. They own a Heartland Landmark and had been at the rally in Goshen, so we had lots to talk about. We were soon hooked up and the rooms slid out, so it was like we were back at home again!

We went in and had a very nice visit with Dan and Karen and they later fixed some burgers for all of us. We had more visiting time with them and I went back home to check on the dogs and take a very short nap.

This evening, we drove over to Munising to pick up some pizzas and listen to some Appalachian music that was being performed by some local talent. Unfortunately, the concert was rained out almost as soon as it started, so we drove back to their home where Dan and Karen had some of their friends over and we went over and chatted with them for awhile. Karen fixed us some root beer floats, which were delicious, and after awhile, we all began to get tired and all went home. It was a very nice day with some good new friends.

This is Dan and Karen's house with our trailer parked in front of one of Dan's barns. This one has another truck inside it and his shop. The other barn, seen in the picture below, can be seen behind my truck. it contains more of Dan's equipment for working around his place. He build everything here and before I leave, I'll take some pictures of the rock formations that he built with rocks gathered up around here.

Here is our trailer and truck and Dan and Karen's Landmark trailer. Dan's truck is in the garage that is attached to the house. This is a very nice place that Dan has built and I am envious.

Here is Stella walking the dogs along the long driveway to their house. Dan told me its about 600 feet from the highway, and very well done. We are looking forward to a good time with them here.

So long.
