The rig was returned to us Monday at the usual time: 2:15pm. Everything was finally complete, and we made the decision to head north. Our next campground was only 65 miles north, and free camping or not, we needed a change of scenery. The weather on Monday was iffy, with scattered T-storms and weather advisories. We decided to take our chances, so, by 2:30pm, we were on the road. It was a straight shot, IN Hwy 13 changed to MI Hwy 131, and, by 4:00pm, we were parked outside of Kalamazoo, MI. We went through some rain showers, but didn't see any movement in the clouds - there had been a tornado warning posted. That is one thing we don't want to tangle with!

We are now at the American Campground, northwest of Kalamazoo. Beautiful park, with two small lakes, and several pairs of geese with goslings. I scrounged some wood (maple I think) yesterday, and will attempt to turn a pen either tomorrow afternoon or Saturday. Lots of maple trees around here. We have found that it is noticeably cooler here than Indiana, even though we didn't travel that far. Seventy degrees feels more like sixty.

We're heading to the Tulip Festival tomorrow, so stay tuned for some flower pictures!
