6/20/13 Thursday at Stockbridge, MI (Heartland Woods RV Resort-RPI-$10/night)
Nice restful time today. I finished “Song of Solomon” by Toni Morrison. Great read, and set in Michigan, largely. Here is where I learned what Michi Gami (Michigan) means: Great Water for the Algonquin Indians. I spent until lunch time working on the blog. John took a walk around the campground. As I returned to Miss Zanzibar, I got talking with the Winnebago owner near us. Since I was headed for lunch at home, I asked if we could get together afterward. Sure, he said.
So we spent the whole afternoon sharing RV info with Bob and Margarite. They are Canadian citizens and US permanent residents (legal resident aliens). Bob worked in Canada (Ontario) until his 40’s when his company sent him to their US office, in Ohio, then Baltimore, then in Alabama, where they have a house. So they have taxes to pay in both Canada and the US. I asked why they chose to stay here, now that he has recently retired. He said because they can go where it’s warm. They’re exploring the US, as we are (starting with the East Coast), then they’re not sure where they’ll settle down. He’s done lots of good things for his 2004 RV: reverse osmosis (of the water), central vacuum, installed laminate flooring and a Wilson Booster that is much better than ours. Sigh, more things for our Dream List.
Came home for supper and relaxing. This time I read and John watched TV reruns.
