We finally escaped Elkhart and made our way to Kalamazoo to Markin Glen Park.  We absolutely love this place.  Full hookups...plenty of space between sites, and concrete pad and patio.  All for around $26.00 a night!  I hesitate to share this info because I think it is one of the best kept secrets going as we rarely have an issue getting a site here and they only have 38.  I do know; however, they are full this weekend!

Today we will get on our bikes and check out the biking/hiking trails.  The weather for this upcoming week is supposed to be stellar!  Highs in the 70's to low 80's and plenty of sunshine.  Oh how I have missed the sunshine!

Now that we have had a chance to 'live' with our repair decisions, I have to say we are glad we did all we did.  The shower is roomy and looks so nice...loving the ice maker in the new frig....and don't know why we waited so long to upgrade the awning to 'push button' what a 'life changer'!  I know sounds silly, but not having to worry about staking the awning down....knowing we can 'roll it up' at any time with the simple push of a button.....AWESOME!

We will be here in Kalamazoo till Tuesday and then we will head over to Frankenmuth till time to head down to hear those wedding bells chime for my son and his bride!

  2. I have only had the push button in and out awnings, but I sometimes was longing the the tie down ones, as it appeared to me that they could be kept out in much stronger winds without damage. But on the other hand, I do like the one finger retrieval too:)

  3. I now have experienced both and I can tell you that the push button ease far out weighs the tie down. Many a time, Bill and I have been caught by an unexpected storm and knew even with tie downs the awning needed to come in and fast. So, there we are in the wind and rain, trying to bring the awning in as quickly as possible. NO FUN AT ALL! We have also been awakened at night and been out there at 2am bringing in the awning. Even though we always watch the weather sometimes it catches you off guard!
