This park we're at now just outside of Bellevue MI has turned out to be really nice. It's really quiet although there has been a small plane overhead about once a day and there are trains but they're far enough away to be hardly noticeable. Plenty of shade too. And it's Passport America for up to 14 days (cash or check only and they don't take reservations). Only drawback is no sewer hookup (but they do have a 'honey wagon' and the fee is only a few dollars). It's connected to the Travel Trailer Club of the Midwest - have to look that one up. Staff (apparently 2 guys at the moment) is really laid back and friendly. Of course the season is winding down up here so things are getting slower.
Im really glad to know about this place! We’ve got kids in Lansing and that wouldn’t be too bad a drive. (We live in New Mexico, where you “run up to Albuquerque” to go to Sam’s and Trader Joe’s. (A 3 hr drive!)
Howdy y’all. Looked back a few pages and see that y’all are still talking up a storm on a daily basis! Hope everyone is doing well.
Well, I’ve found a new fun thing to do. A friend of mine and I are doing some music gigs / entertaining at RV parks now! We sang for crowds at River Ranch RV Park just outside Ruidoso Downs on 2 different weekends now. Have sound equipment, will travel!
Also, Kate and I sold the Tiffin coach a couple of years ago, bought a Crossroads Cruiser fiver (piece of junk), put it on consignment and will pick up our new 2018 Grand Design Reflection 303rls 5th wheel in Fort Worth on Tuesday. (NOT a piece of junk!)
25th anniversary coming up in 2020, so we are planning to go on a cruise to Alaska in May! Anyone who has done a cruise up there have any pointers or advice?
Mel (and Kate, who says “Hi!”
It’s great to hear from youse two. (Hi Kate!)
We are doing an Alaska cruise next July!!!!
We use Royal Caribbean lines. I suggest getting “my time dining”. It lets you choose your meal time every day, making it easier to schedule shore tours, etc.
And, it’s grand to hear that you are singing more now. Your listeners are soooo lucky!

Drawback to open time dinning is everyone does it. You may find a wait time at dinning room door. We always did late dinning to ensure we are back on board in plenty of time. We use Carnival and always had a great time. Book your excursion before you depart, otherwise the cheaper ones may be booked once on board.
Whale watching was good, the shorter (4hr) train ride was entertaining and fun. The longer trip was too long acording to friends that took it. Have fun. Remember you can turn in before it gets dark cause nights are really short.
We walked around a lot and even took a taxi to Walmart which turned into a sight seeing trip.

The Winnebago/Newmar thing could get interesting. If Winnebago lets them operate independently, things could be good. If they start meddling with their current operations, things could go downhill. Lots of "doom & gloom" over on the Newmar owner's forum right now though...

We are spending a few days in a national park about 30 miles south of Johnson City Tn. It’s called Rock creek recreational area. Beautiful old growth hardwoods, large level spaces, quiet, and plenty of trails for exercise.
