The annual move to the Southwest

With winter rapidly approaching we vacated our summer digs in Leelanau County, Michigan and fled to the Southwest for the winter. We left "The Farm" on September 20 and traveled through Michigan's Upper Peninsula,

stopping for the first night in Escanaba at the home of our good friends, Dan & Pat Martenson. Pat as usual treated us to a first rate dinner complete with apple pie, my favorite.

We left Escanaba very early the next morning and headed for our RV dealer in Appleton, Wisconsin where we had an appointment for some minor RV repairs. We spent the next four days in Appleton, our old home town, visiting friends & family and checking in with our family physician for annual physicals. I had my three year colonoscopy scheduled for friday the 24th and everything, literally, came out ok.
On Saturday the 25th we continued traveling west across Wisconsin and Minnesota overnighting in Albert Lea, MN. On subsequent days we overnighted in Council Bluffs, IA; North Platte, NE; Laramie, WY; Evanston, WY and Cedar City, UT arriving in Pahrump, NV on Friday, October first for a two month stay here at The Nevada Treasure RV Resort.

We happily settled into the very same site, 9-4, that we had last spring. We love this park for its beauty and many amenities and were pleasantly surprised to find that they had lowered the monthly rate.
Life is good. Happy happy, joy, joy.
