On the road again headed NE to High Cliffs State Park, to meet up with friends, Mike & Sue, that we knew when we all lived near Marquette, MI. in 1972-1974. Mike & Sue are Camp Hosts at High Cliffs State Park for two months, found this out on Facebook, small world. We had a spot next to them, it was like Mutt & Jeff, our 22' RV and their 36' RV. Mike and Sue are "Full Time" RV'ers, so that explains the 36' Class A motorhome. We stayed at High Cliff two days and played a lot of Bridge (afternoon and evening). We have not played bridge for about 26 years, thus we forgot, err I should say I forgot how to play, not that I knew that much 26 years ago. But we got back in the groove and had a good time playing till the late hours of the night.

We got back to our campsites eager to play Bridge, but couldn't find our RV's keys. We knew Ellie's keys were in the RV. We looked all over the car we all traveled in for our tour around the park. We retraced our steps, drove around the park again. Ellie climbed all the way up the observation tower. We were about to call a locksmith when we found the keys. They had fallen in the pocket of the seatbelt in the back seat. Thank you, God! So grateful to find the keys. So LESSON NO. 2: both of us should carry our keys. Whew, so could play Bridge again! That evening we went to The Big Shanghai Buffet in Menasha, Wisconsin and, of course ate and ate. Total bill for the 4 of us was $37.56 (pre tip).
On Sunday a couple stopped by our site and asked to see our Roadtrek. We are happy to be ambassadors for Roadtrek.
We stayed at Koehler-Andrea State Park on Thursday night. The moon was full. We enjoyed walking on the beautiful sandy beach. On our way home on Friday we stopped at Ellie's sister, Bev and her husband, Tom's home near Milwaukee. We had a great visit. Glad to hear about their trip to Europe and family. We got home about 4:45 pm, in time to get the mail from the Post Office. Another successful trip, a bit shorter than the first one, only 843 miles.
Thus far we have been averaging 20.941 MPG and have put on a total of 2309 miles.
