Camping again

We are back at Carlyle again. This is sounding like a broken record. Just the usual, bike riding and Kayaking, relaxing and enjoying retirement.

Carlyle Lake, IL

Back again at the lake. We have a lakefront site. A little rain yesterday and last night, beautiful today. 

We took the Kayak out today and could not get it to go straight. We were all over the lake. When we got back I found we put the seats in backwards which made the rudders in the front. No wonder we had problems. Maybe another try tomorrow.

We did a little bike riding today too. A very nice day.

Our second day in the boat was much better. Today we just took it easy, no boat riding. The weather is great and we are having a good time. 

We moved to another site so we could stay longer, this on was not on the lake but it had full hook ups. 
We enjoyed this trip as usual.

We are looking forward to our next trip, coming up soon.

Hoby's Happy Hippy Hoedown

We just returned from Rend Lake, near Sesser, IL. We were invited to attend this event at the Shagbark Group campsite at North Sandusky Campground. This event was put on by Hoby Melton and his family. And it was a great event. There were several Scamps, one Casita, 4 Aliners, two motor homes and two travel trailers.

Hoby and his family had scheduled several events: Texas Hold'em, Tech Talk, Yoga, Art, Crafts, Movie night, Talent Show, Bingo, Hikes. Plus lots of food and drink was involved: Hot Dogs, chips, wine tasting, beer, grilled cheese, waffles, chili dump, pot luck, popcorn, etc.

We hope this becomes an annual event, we would love to go again. Thanks again to Hoby and his awesome family!
