Lapeer, MI

We're once again taking advantage of courtesy parking, in a quiet driveway just north of I-69. We pulled in about 11 pm last night and quickly plugged in before sacking out.

Now that the thunderstorms and cold front have passed through, the weather is absolutely the peak of June perfection. Sunny, crystal clear, dry, breezy and about 78 degrees. It was a pleasure to sit on the front bed and catch up on email and other business, while enjoying the panoramic view through Vintage Thunder's front windows.

Our courtesy parking hosts, Carol and Bradley, have taken the day off to show us around town. There's a beautiful little lake near here, Lake Nippissing (?), and we had dinner at its edge. Now I am back in the trailer posting to you.

A few stats from the recent Homecoming event:
