There comes a time in every full-time RVer's life when he/she must give in to the revenges of age, claim a spot on this planet and hang his hat there.
The physical demands and the cost of travel have finally convinced us that we must now bite the bullet and stay here in Leelanau County, Michigan year around on the Schlueter family cherry farm. Teddy's brother, John owns the farm but has his own home and as the farmhouse was standing vacant since the passing of Teddy's parents, John has given us a life lease on it in lieu of Teddy's share of the farm. We have named the house "The Farm" and I am changing the title of our blog to "On The Farm With Larry & Teddy" to be more indicative of our current life style. In the past three summers we have had some badly needed major upgrades done and are now finally finished with the remodeling. I really enjoy being here and am thinking that I might even enjoy looking out at the snow covered fields this winter, knowing that I don't actually have to go outdoors to shovel snow as John will plow us out and I don't have a job to go to anyway. So Teddy and I will just stay indoors, drink hot chocolate, read books and watch the birds on the feeders.
We have made many lifelong friends during our six years if RVing and treasure their friendship. We are hopeful that some them as well as our Wisconsin friends might, visit us here on "The Farm" winter and/or summer. There are many things to see and do here in the Grand Traverse region of Michigan and it is truly one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
