Best for this year was me, my 13 year old daughter (youngest), and our dog at the a Mahoning Drive Inn, in Pennsylvania. We had a great time for Christmas in July. No electric, so we brought an inverter and 4 car batteries wired in parallel for these lights and inflatables. We didn’t know it then, but that would end up being our dogs last camping trip.

Worst trip was a few weeks later in August. Started out great with me and 5 kids and perfect weather, but while packing up sunday, I slipped and cut my hand right thru nerves and tendons. Extensive surgery, Then to top it off, my bosses dad died later that day, and then next day we had to put the dog down immediately before the wake! Like literally got changed into my suit in the vet parking lot, then to the funeral home. Been out of work ever since, but going back finally next week.

I'm terrible at picking favorites - I loved all our trips this past year - our best year ever.

So I asked dh and I'll go with that...

The best was our spring trip to Michigan which included Tulip Time in Holland:

Sleeping Bear Dunes:

And Tahquamenon Falls in the UP:

It was not possible to pick a worst. It really was an exceptional year.

If you want to see where else we went click on the Trip Pics link in my signature.

Happy New Year to ALL!

Glad to see so many members enjoying our great state of Michigan! [emoticon]

Our best was camping at my sons private family campground that he built up in the northern Michigan woods. It is a full hookup campground for our families use that can accomodate 6 rigs up there if everybody attends at the same time! [emoticon]

Some of the family rigs.

My worst time was having to permanently park our trailer up there and not use it to travel any more. I am getting kind of old (almost 83) and although I have no problems driving as of now, I found it hard to do all the other things necessary to travel via RV. Bending over, hooking up, unhooking, setting up utilities, chairs, awning, etc. all became too much for these old bones so we decided to stop travelling and permanently park our rig to be used a our "summer place" now. That was a very hard decision for me and I still miss it very much.

Yeah, surprised the heck out of me. Just like kids, the moment I made contact and everyone realized what happens- all those old fogies scattered like Mom was coming!

We went through a similar thing (but not the campsite) on Lake Erie at Maumee Bay State Park. A nor'easter blew the water up throughout the park. On the way there the water was across the highway in a few spots.

Where were you camping on Lake Ontario? Looks beautiful!

Thanks! Association Island KOA Henderson Harbor, NY. I booked the same site again for next summer as I'm betting on the law of averages it will not happen on our next stay! [emoticon]

In September, we checked a lot of things off our Bucket Lists did a swoop through the SW states and visited Nat'l Parks, drove some of Rte 66, etc. Weirdest stops: Ed wanted to see Cadillac Ranch (buried cars) and I paid my respects at a memorial for 3 Storm Chasers in El Reno. Best: Bryce Canyon in the morning sunlight. Seeing California Condors at Marble Canyon. Worst? Nothing - it was a great trip!
