Back from a 2-week MO - MI - MO trip. Was hoping for a nice fall color tour but overall the MI weather was crappy - pretty much rained a little each day, some more than others. It became more about people - we visited my parents, my son/girlfriend, two different couples that we've known for years, an old high school friend, and sister/brother in law. This was a "work while traveling" experiment that went mostly ok. We moved more often than I'd like, trying to fit everything/everyone in. I worked in 3 different libraries, a co-working office, other people's houses, and a little in the van. We spent 5 nights in campgrounds ranging from $5 city park overnighters to $35 MI state parks. Overall, weather aside, it was a good trip with lots of tasty meals and beverages. My thoughts about this rig have changed. Initially I wanted a weekender/stealth camper. But two things happened: I learned I don't sleep well in stealth mode (basically the more windows we plug up the worse I sleep), and my job changed to be more flexible. Two weeks was a bit long - it was only really tolerable because we spent so much time at family. MsBoyink would sleep inside their house, I did better back in the van. So now I'm thinking this is a 5-7 day rig and we'll try to find one place to be during that time. Less moving will help keep up the work schedule. But to be somewhere longer I'll probably need to carry a bit more stuff, so I'm thinking of adding the half-a-Ranger trailer into the mix, using it to haul bikes & kayaks + related gear, plus a screen tent, etc to use at the campground. It's going to take some mods, but should be doable. Along the AuSable river in Ludington State Park: Lake Michigan at Ludington State Park The Au Sable with a hint of sun that quickly went away: DeZwaan windmill in Holland, MI. I lived within 5 miles of this for 40+ years and only just now went inside.
