Yeah, my "camping" started when I was five when my grandparents who raised my sister and I went with my Dad to Denver from Michigan in one of those old green Airstream type trailers for six months for Daddy to take fire fighter training at the air base there. He was fire chief in Oscoda, Michigan, Wurthsmith AFB for years. We started taking two week vacations every August in that old trailer in the UP for years till Granny got tired of the set up and they purchased a cabin, really decrepit with a wood cook stove and outhouse complete with bears, at Indian Lake near Manistique. After I moved here to Oklahoma in 67 and married we camped with the kids, ended up with five. We used our fiver for job site living too. DH brick mason for over 50 years now. At 72 he still runs a crew so we can afford to travel some. SS just pays an existence and no more. With all those kids and being self employed, no health insurance or public assistance back then, there was nothing left for retirement savings. No sob story, just fact of life you deal with. So far our health is good and as long as we can climb in the camper and drive safely we'll keep moving. Game plan is to work 4 months March thru June then off to kids in Grand Junction, Colorado and other parts July and August. Back home September thru December and then down to my brothers place in central Florida between Tampa and Orlando January and February. But then the best laid plans of nice and men.......remains to be seen how that lane flies. Sorry, long winded. All Star game kinda boring. DH and I big Thunder fans. At least enjoy then when they come to play, as a TEAM, not so much other times. LOL
Old but not dead yet!
