    “Donald Trump is trying to transform the election from a referendum on his own abject performance to a contest centered on radical Democrats and unrest in the streets.”

    Professional writers are so much better than myself at expressing themselves and saying what I would like to say much more succinct. The first paragraph says exactly what I think. It always amazes me these days that his cult of trump does not see this and abandon him.

    A guy I know came up to me they other day and said “I do not know how the USA would survive if Joe Biden is elected”. While giving him a non-committal, placating sort of an answer that I was not that sure. However, all the time I was thinking that the exact opposite was true – If Trump gets elected I do not see how the USA will survive fully intact.

    This post will do nothing change minds or results but I have recorded my thoughts just to remind me that this is my thought for the moment.

  • Michigan Camping Sites

    I came across this really nifty camping site finder for northern Michigan and I thought I would pass it on and bookmark it here:

    Midweek camping is a just a click away

    With the click of a button, you can find midweek camping destinations still available Aug. 30-Sept. 3. This is perfect for last-minute planners or anyone wanting to add more adventure to their already-planned trip.

    As the busy holiday weekend approaches, there are still plenty of camping opportunities at many state parks and recreation areas! These are links for central Michigan and southern Michigan.

    I find the Twitter DNR site to be informative and within the tweet there are many other Michigan links.

  • Boondockers Welcome

    Some time ago we joined Boondockers Welcome ( https://www.boondockerswelcome.com/). So what exactly is BW? You can read a little about it below and if you go to the site above there is a nice video on the subject near the bottom of the website.

    Boondockers Welcome is built by RVers, for RVers. Our philosophy is that RVing brings out the best in people – being in new places, while sharing tight quarters next to complete strangers every day has a way of making people learn what is important in life and how making friends on the road is often the best part of the story.

    By definition, RVers love to travel, and want to do so comfortably and affordably. We know first hand that RVers will welcome each other to stay on their property only moments after having just met. Kindness and generosity abound. Boondockers Welcome is a venue where RVers can connect and welcome each other to camp on their property, with no expectations of being paid in anything more than gratitude and a pay-it-forward spirit.

    Hosting RVers is so easy and gratifying – there’s no need to clean the bathroom or make up the guest bed. And there are always exciting travel stories to be shared, so conversation, if you’re interested in it, is always easy and enjoyable.

    Join the growing community of Boondockers Welcome, either as a host, as a guest, or as both. See for yourself how much the journey is improved by the friends you make along the way.
