Waiting for my trailer to be built so I sat this weekend out. That being said, I went to the RV Hall of Fame Museum in Indiana.
You want to talk about some cool stuff, saw the first Coachmen trailer, Jayco pop-up and a whole lot of cool early 50`s and 60 `s trailers and motorhomes. I would suggest anyone that can get by there do so. It is well worth your time.

You are right about the scenery. We tend to be more nice lake and beach people rather than the mountains. We usually make one trip a year to the Rockies. I get to see them traveling with work so I like to go somewhere different when we camp. We probably all take what we have in our own backyards for granted a little I imagine. I would just like 2 more months of summer :-)

I, too, am waiting for my new trailer to be built, but we rarely get out this weekend anyway. My wife and I are teachers, so we usually try to get in a last hurrah at the beach before we go back in August. Labor Day weekend is just too busy a time of year for us to get away. Another week or two, however, and weekends are fair game again!

We driveway camped this Labor Day - didn't want to dodge all the traffic. Had a lot of fun - we just pretended the house wasn't there. And Wolverine - thanks for the tip on the RV Hall of Fame. We'll try to see it next time we're out that way. BTW, have you ever been to the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit ? There used to be the wooden trailer camper Henry custom built for his friend Charles Lindbergh in there somewhere. Pretty cool, too.

Tinlizzie, I am an hour away from Henry Ford Museum and have never went. Not big on the city....the big city.
I did see the first motorhome that was built of a model T however. Let me tell you, it was primitive.
