Bon Voyage


We head out on our first real road trip with the Castaway early Saturday morning. The excitement is building as we get ready to cast off. Ok, I know. That was a pretty bad pun.

We built our packing list for the trip and we have been refining it as we go. It has helped us to get the coach prepared for departure.

We expect to cross the border early afternoon on the Saturday. We will be spending one night at the Port Huron KOA before making our way to our final destination which is the Petoskey Motorcoach Resort in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

Although we are still very much newbies, we have learned to call ahead at the campgrounds to make sure our rig will fit.

We will have no issues at Petoskey. Their sites are very large and designed specifically for big rigs.

KOA sites? Well, let’s just say the ones we have used so far have turned out to be really tight for our coach.

Initially, our booking at the Port Huron KOA on the way up to Petoskey was a large super site. But then we changed our dates and we were assigned to a much smaller back-in site. We asked to be placed on a waiting list for an upgraded site. We called them up last night and success. We are back on a large super site, site 38.


On the way back, we are assigned a pull through site at the Port Huron KOA which looks to be fine for our coach. But, we will check that site out on our way up to Petoskey to make sure.

This will be our first border crossing with our coach and with our dog. Hopefully it all goes well.

Two more sleeps.
