Our big trip isn't so big compared to some ;-) Heading from our place in SW Michigan to Northern Central lower MI (North Higgins Lake) for a work conferance/vacation 4 nights in late June. From there We are heading over to Traverse City State park for 4 nights. Just got back from SE Kentucky for a mission trip, but the camper didn't go... Our big trip this year is Florida, but its a time share, so no camper. Hoping to squeeze in a Cedar Point this season, and plan a lot of 3 day weekends with the camper, but none planned out of state at this point...

Be careful at Higgins. I'm not sure about the north side, but the south side has a lot of issues with swimmer's itch (look it up, yuck). Most lakes in Michigan can have this issue at one point or another, but Higgins seems to be the worst year after year. This is a shame as I am told it's a great place to camp.

The last I read, the powers that be have a plan to deal with it. Since they absolutely refuse to use any chemical whatsoever, their plan will take three years and might not be that effective.

So, be sure to ask when you get there if there have been any outbreaks (if you intend to swim).

What do you have planned?
While in Memphis check out Sun Studios where Elvis recorded his first albums and where the Million Dollar Quartet jam session took place.

I'm leaving my home base on 5-15 for Panama City, FL where I will be camp hosting at St. Andrews State Park for 4 months. Then back to the home base in central Alabama until the 2015 Petit le Mans at Road Atlanta 9-29 to 10-4. Then back to home base until 12-18 when it is go visit Mickey time for Christmas. This will be my first time at Ft. Wilderness and with the grandchildren there at the same time it should be great fun. Then back to the home base.

Going to be a busy year, but that's good.

Were leaving MB to see Memphis (Elvis too) and see the Mud River Park, then stop by Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, then up to Colorado City, CO to visit the outlaws for awhile and check out Colorado Springs. After that were doing Mt Rushmore and eventually making it back home from there. There are several stops/tourist type attractions along the way we'll hit along our travels just havent finalized the little stops yet. Unfortunalty our little Jayco wont be in tow for this trip due to my alotted vaction days and the fuel costs assosciated.
