That's good to hear, they're getting right to everything on mine also. I see you live in Michigan, since we are up this way, can you recommend sights to see or camps to stay in? We would love to see some of Michigan.

Maybe not all the way north, but would like to see some nice coastline and lakes.

Stay on the west side of the state. The coastline is Much better along that side. Many places to see and to stay. Lighthouses and museums along the way.

Absolutely, the west side has a great coast. There are many places to see. Close to Indiana is Southhaven and Saugatuck. Farther up Holland, Traverse City, Petoskey and Mackinaw City/Island. I am originally from Ohio and have just started exploring Michigan. It offers so much and has so much beauty, we have decided for the next couple of years we are going to concentrate on travelling here instead of going west and east as we have done in the past. The cities that I mentioned I have seen and can say they have a lot to do and are beautiful. I don't know how much color is changing north of here, but the fall is a great time to tour seeing all the colors. If you are a beer lover, there probably is no better single state in the union offering the number of quality craft beers/breweries that you'll find here. As far as campgrounds, I usually go by ratings on the web. If you go as far as Traverse City, we stayed at Timber Ridge and was really impressed with it. Any other questions, feel free to PM me or post.

Traverse Bay RV in Traverse City is a great park. Also Hearthside in Petosky is beautiful. If traveling to the bridge try Mackanaw Mill in Mackanaw City. Nice place and a nice view. If going further Anne Osborne in the Soo is a good place to watch the boats go by.
Lots of other spots that are fantastic.
