Currently in Houghton Lake MI (Low 42 Sunny Currently 54)
Heading to Sault Ste Marie MI (Currently 55 Mostly Sunny High 72) 

We got our door ding fixed, which we will blog about later, and we left the Elkhart Campground and headed to the Houghton Lake Travel Park in Houghton Lake Michigan. We are digging the cooler temperatures, it was actually chilly overnight. Really appreciated the fireplace this morning.

It was 227 or so miles, a little longer than we like but we are anxious to get to the Soo.  We had dueling GPS devices again and we chose poorly. We ended up with about 250 miles, 4 hours 40 minutes with road construction, an accident, and 2 stops to stretch legs etc. We were kind of bellyaching about the extra time and confusion when we came upon probably the worst wreck we have ever seen. It was just before one of the road construction areas and the driver of the car apparently did not heed the signs and slammed into the back of a semi at a very high rate of speed. We later learned it was a fatality accident. Puts everything into perspective when things like this happen.

We are OK with our door ding that only cost us 1 day on the Upper Peninsula. It did cost us 3 days near the Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan but now we have something to see the next time. This is kinda the route we took, doubt it could be recreated on a map.

We stayed hooked up since we are leaving today for the Soo. We did take advantage of full hookups since we will be water and electric for the next 6 nights. Should be interesting as it will be like camping for us, 30amp and no sewer.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
