From Michigan Into Indiana

Sleeping Bear Dunes, MI
From the Bay County Fairgrounds, we headed back west to the shore of Lake Michigan at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Park), MI. We had reservations at Platte River Campground for an electric site. Generators aren't allowed in this campground, but most sites have electricity. This National Park is known best for the feature which the park is named, the perched sand dunes ...

Touring Michigan, Part One

Lake Superior, U.P, MI
The day before we were scheduled to leave Potawatami State Park, we got "busted" for running the generator, We got through the busy weekend with a full campground with no issues. But on Tuesday, when the campground was almost empty the ranger stopped to "talk" to me about running the generator. He was nice and understanding, especially after I pointed out that there were no signs stating no genera...

Touring Wisconsin

Our fist destination in Wisconsin was the Pine View Recreation Area operated by the US Army at Fort McCoy, near Sparta...

Visiting Minnesota and Iowa

Lake Superior North Shore Scenic Drive, MN
Wow! We've picked up the pace and have visited many places in these past couple of weeks! After the Corps of Engineer park near Minot, ND, we moved further east to Grand Forks AFB and stayed in their nice FamCamp (Family Campground). This is a quiet campground located in a back portion of the base. It's the kind of place we enjoy staying at. During our 3-day stay here, we visited the Ronald Reagan...

Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Site, ND

Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Museum
While visiting Malmstrom AFB, in Montana, I visited their on-base museum. Malmstrom AFB's mission is now only to maintain 150 Minuteman III missiles. When I first started in the US Air Force, my first assignment was to F.E. Warren AFB, whose only mission is also to maintain 150 Minuteman Missiles. I asked at the Malmstrom AFB base if there were any missile silos that were open for tours and I lear...
