We didn’t quite make it back from Traverse City yet. On the way home we decided to stop and spend a week or so at the Valley Plaza RV Resort in Midland, Michigan. This will put us close enough to commute to work, yet attempt to detract me from my endless list of Honey-Do things that I should be doing at home right now. My wife insists that this will be good therapy for me and my stress level.
So far the park has been very relaxing except for the occasional Train whistle at 2 AM in the morning and the constant roar of engines from the nearby expressway ramp. Other than that, I have had plenty of time to wind down. I will have to admit however; that on more than one occasion this week I did sneak home to complete a few odd jobs around the house. I guess if we are close enough to drive to work, we are not quite far enough from household chores.
Last night we finally managed to make time to soak in the hot tub for a bit. There we met a really nice couple who just like us love the RV lifestyle. We enjoyed chatting and swapping camping stories. They told us about plans they had for a trip to PEI (Prince Edward Island) in the near future. By the sounds of it, this would be a truly remarkable tour.
Today the weather is remarkable. The sun is shining, there is a slight fall breeze and the temperature is in the low 70s. It is a simply gorgeous day. We need to cherish these days for old-man winter is soon enough going to be knocking on the back door.
