A Couple of Workin' Stiffs!


Well, it was certainly a crazy, hectic month! There was alot going on in the park, especially since school is out for the summer. We have themed weekends and decorations, crafts and movie are all geared to the theme. It's wonderful to watch the families out around the lake, the kids jumping and having fun in the water. As we take our evening walk around the park, families are sitting around campfires roasting marshmallows and enjoying each other and the lovely weather. The only bad thing we've found is that these same people are up cooking BACON the next morning while we're headed in to work!

Jeremy and two of his friends came over to visit us for a few days and stayed in one of the cabins we have here at the campground. It was so good to see him and spend some family time. We did have some great excitement the evening he arrived. We had all just left to go out for dinner when a storm came up. It ended up being what the weather folks called a derecho. Came up fast and furious. We had gone about 3 miles when traffic stopped and we realized folks in front of us were turning around. Lots of trees were down across the road, so we turned around and headed back to the campground. While we had put in all of our awnings, the small awning over the door was ripped completely off the coach and dropped at the foot of the steps! After we cleaned that up we all piled into the coach and we fixed hamburgers at home. The storm was so bad that the campground lost power for 12 hours. We were lucky, though as some folks hundreds of miles around were without power for up to 2 weeks. We had people staying in the campground in tents with small air conditioners in them! The weather was really hot and humid during this time as well.

We finally got the awning fixed but had to make two trips up near Columbus, OH (about 225 miles one way) to the closest Fleetwood dealer.

Our good friends, Bob and Elsie, pulled in to the site next to us for a 2-week stay. Ooh, are we gonna have some fun!
