Ford Escape - Towing Issues

I wish I knew the answer that question.  More than anything I wish I could believe that I could answer it definitively with a resounding, “Yes!” Why Did My Axle Fall Off? I really wish that the axle falling off as I posted on Ford Escape Problems Even Worse Now was not due to the negligence of […]

Ford Escape - Towing Issues, Setbacks

It’s raining now, but it’s a nice, soft and gentle rain.  Other than the sounds of the drops on my roof, the campground is quiet.  After the Ford Escape drama yesterday, I am safe in my motorhome, I assume my car will be fixed and I have a free rental car in the meantime. I fully understand and appreciate how […]

Ford Escape - Towing Issues, RVing

Today, while turning a corner, I heard a jolting noise and the car stopped – just past the intersection, but still blocking other traffic trying to turn.  My first thought was “Oh, oh, I had hoped my transmission problem was fixed, but apparently it’s rearing it’s ugly head again!” Just last night I received an email […]

Michigan

The main local attraction I wanted to see while staying at Brimley State Park was the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan’s oldest city.  I had heard about this and thought it sounded interesting, but especially after seeing so many of these huge ships go by at various places I’ve been, I wanted to […]

Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island

July 22, 2011 I knew the main attraction for me while staying at Straits State Park was going to be the Grand Hotel.  I held out for as long as I could because I wanted to be totally immersed in the experience, so I made sure I had toured Mackinac Island by foot, bike and carriage before venturing […]

When I first arrived at Straits State Park and started exploring around my new home territory, I drove by the St. Ignace Deer Ranch.  Since deer are my all-time favorite animals, I wasn’t about to pass up this chance to get up close and personal with these beautiful and gentle creatures. My timing was especially […]

Mackinac Island, Michigan

While you can visit Fort Mackinac as a separate deal, I made this a stop at the end of the Mackinac Island Carriage Tour.  It was a perfect top-off of a great day on historic Mackinac Island! From the moment I was greeted by this beautiful Victorian lady, I could pretend I was being swept […]

Mackinac Island, Michigan

Wings of Mackinac is a stop I’m glad I made while on the Mackinac Island Carriage Tour. How could I pass up such a charming entrance and welcoming turtle? And it is like entering a miniature magical world filled with fairies, flowers and flittering friends – meet some below… Being so close to these gentle […]

Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, Michigan

July 18, 2011 During my first trip to Mackinac Island, I walked around till my feet hurt, then biked around till my butt hurt, so this time when I went back, I opted to let the horses of Mackinac Island Carriage Tours cart me around for a while… Your carriage awaits M’lady! It was especially great […]

Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, Michigan

July 16, 2011 When I first got to my homebase at Straits State Park, I gushed in my post “I’m Going to the Island” that I just couldn’t wait to get to Mackinac Island.  I could justify waiting for my tour of the Grand Hotel because there was something exquisitely delicious in just a little longer delay in […]
