ouchI’m not sure if, 2 days after shoulder surgery, I would have been advised to go on a weekend camping trip, but since I had my cooling wrap, a full bottle of “Aleve”, Kim kept me well hydrated with sodas and non alcoholic G&T’s, and my reclining lawn chair, that’s what we did.

We went to Muskegon, MI, to the Hoffmaster State Park to a vintage trailer gathering, pulling the Spartan with the Diamond T.  It was well attended, with perhaps 85 vintage campers.  Everything from Airstreams to Spartans, with what seemed like more Shastas than I’ve seen in one place.  It was fun.

The Spartan and truck were a big hit during Saturdays open house.  We’d intended to count the number of visitors through the trailer, but quickly decided it wasn’t going to be practical.  According to the event host, Brandon Morrison (from whom we had just bought the Del-Ray camper), the park rangers said 500 cars visited for the open  house.  That seems about right.

It was a fun weekend, if a little cool by the lakeshore.  A welcome change from this weekend last year, when it was over 100 degrees and humid.

Were gearing up for our cross-country jaunt the end of this month on the Lincoln Highway with the Tin Can Tourists, to Kearny (pronounced “Carney”) Nebraska, we can only hope the cool weather continues into July in the entire Midwest!
