Terri and I made it up to the Mackinaw Bridge for the weekend. We stayed just north of the bridge in St. Ignace at the Kewadin Casino. We usually do not come up here this time of year. The Mackinaw area is a very popular place in the middle of summer. We had a difficult time finding any spots to stay this weekend. We have never camped at this casino before. It isn’t much of a campground. If you are looking for a place where the family can sit around a …

It has been a very long and cold winter. The snow here in Michigan just doesn’t seem to want to go away. Now that April is here and May is just around the corner I am hoping that Spring will soon be arriving (But I am not going to hold my breath!) We were itching get away, so even though it is not very warm out yet we decided to get the RV out and head up to Manistee, MI for a little R&R. Not very many people here at the …

We are up in the Traverse City State Park once again this year. This time we chose to use this campground as a home base while we traveled north for a color tour.

We had a wonderful trip and ended up at the Odawa Casino to enjoy the buffet they put out for us to over-indulge ourselves with. Sunday it rained all day. You would think …

We are currently up at the Little River Casino in Manistee, Michigan. We come up here more for a place to relax than a place to lose our cash. Don’t get me wrong I have been known to drop a bill or two into a slot machine on occasion. In fact I just walked out with $198.00 dollars that took me around ten minutes or so to coax out of the noisy video gambling box. After that we made our way over to the casino ticket counter to inquire about …

Terri and I have ended our little vacation at Holiday Park Campground in Traverse City, Michigan to meet up with some of our camping friends for the Memorial Day weekend. While here we took a trip back to the Underground Cheesecake Company and also toured Building 50. We stopped at the Turtle Creek Casino to try our luck.  I lost all my cash, while Terri increased her’s by 675%. At the casino we ran into my daughter-in-law’s parents, Kevin & Dianne. Last night all met at Boone’s Long Lake Inn for …
