Class Reunion of Another Kind!
We left Celina, Ohio, on Saturday morning and drove to Summit Lake State Park, near our former home of Mooreland, Indiana. We had pre-registered, so it was a quick stop at the office, then back to our favorite site A70. Water and electric only, but they have decent showerhouses and the sites are large with nice gravel pads and grass areas. It is large enough to set some things out and give the dogs a nice area in which to sun themselves.
Our friends, Dave and Mark, were parked across the street from us in their beautiful new Georgetown Class A, 38 foot. It is absolutely gorgeous and we were soon treated to a guided tour. It is a different floor plan from any I have seen and is very attractive. Their Airdale, Dylan, greeted us with a resounding bark.
We made some plans with the guys regarding the potluck on Sunday afternoon. We had previously invited a few friends from where we taught. Dave and I retired the same year and we miss seeing friends we had known for over 30 years. We had 19 that came for the fun and fellowship and no one left until the little black bugs started biting. Boy were they annoying. A few people followed us back to the campground and we were able to show them our "home" that we have traveled full time in for 3 years. I really appreciated those who were able to come and especially those who told me I was the reason they came. How special was that? It certainly made me feel as important to them as they are to me. The thought was passed around that we should make this an annual event and we should consider making a wider invitation to any who might be interested in attending and getting the word out earlier. I think that would be fun and I'm sure would be do-able.
One thing for sure . . . the food was wonderful and we had a nice variety. Thanks to everyone who attended.
Till next time. . .
