Mackinac Island, Mi

We had fun a couple weeks back when we spent two nights in Mackinaw City, Mi. We took a day trip via ferry to Mackinac Island (pronounced Mackinaw). For those who have never been, Mackinac Island has banned motorized vehicle for more than a century and remains a living Victorian community. Only bikes/horses/carriages. And the ferry/Island is very pet friendly. Breezi was welcomed at all but the Grand Hotel. She sat with us while dining on one of the restaurant patios. Next time, we would like to camp (this time we stayed at a hotel)

Jayco Made Carriage!

We took a horse and carriage tour on Mackinac Island. We rode a smaller carriage, then transfered to the larger JAYCO made 28 passenger carriage! They were special made for Mackinac Island by Jayco a few years back

Great photo and even greater bit of Jayco trivia--who'd a thunk it!

Looks like you had fun on Mackinac Island. The island is much better than the city, although they have definately improved the city in the last 10 years by adding the large shopping court. We try to get the kids to the island every couple of years on our way to the Upper. If you decide to camp in the area try Wilderness State Park just west of Mackinaw City. There is also a KOA near there that I've heard good things about. Avoid Mackinaw Mill Creek campground as the sites are tiny and it is very crowded.

Back on the Road

After a month in Milwaukee, we're packed up and back on the road and heading home! My auntie had a fantastic 100th bday party last week. The rv park at the fairgrounds turned out to be a nice home for the month.

We made it to the Omaha area. Unfortunately we will spend the morning at a dealer having warranty work done on our Equalizer Hitch. The bracket on the tongue shifted somehow and the bracket bent and cracked. It happened when me made a turn into the campground.

Here is a kewl pic of a yellow flower.... can you see the beetle and the bee?

Glad to hear you haven' a good time. We just got home from northern Indiana (Jayco factory.... John still doesn't remember you ) so am winding down. We're home for the winter and looking forward to travels next season.

Hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip!
