We did some rethinking on where we were staying yesterday. In fact, we started looking at the maps we picked up at the Michigan Visitor Center and found more campground options closer to Adam. At Algonac State Park figured we were about an hour and a half away from Adam (in Ferndale, MI) and we wanted to be closer to him.
We found Haas Lake Park near New Hudson and gave them a call. They seemed a little high ($37/night) but if we stayed there, we could get a monthly rate of $624. That was within our budget and decided to go for it.
We packed up fairly quickly after watching a beautiful sunrise.
We like one near the semi-permanent campers. The lake is apparently a popular location for RV campers to rent spots for long term stays. That means some sites are 'improved' with porches, decks, fire pits and flower gardens.
We liked the fact the sites are fairly large with some grass.
We decided to go for a walk even though the temperature was about 39 degrees!
Another interesting feature of the campground is the neighbors. Along the property in one corner is a house with a turkey coop.
Once we got back to the Roadrunner, we saw that the wind had not let up much. But at least the sun was out. Later, we even had a couple of snow flakes...
We decided to run a few errands and found General RV about five miles down the road.
Question for our readers: Do you use a drop down hitch? Has it made a difference for you? Thanks in advance for replying.
We are not done shopping around yet. We may be able to get one cheaper elsewhere. Seemed pretty high at $139.
We did go to Home Depot and buy a couple of large washers to put over the rebar at the base of our flag stand. Should make it swivel with the wind easier. We also got a couple of small plants for the coach.
This time the sun set outside our front window--looking across the farm land adjacent to the campground.
Hope your weekend is going well and it is warm where you are! Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!
