...in Davison, MI until October 14. After another great Montana Owners Club Rally that included lots of rain, we allowed the wet, cool weather to follow us home. Yup, we've got rain and cool weather turning cold tomorrow. We then leave for a two week journey to Silver Springs, FL, where we will be until April 1. We plan on driving home between Thanksgiving and Christmas, leaving the Montana in FL. What a concept - driving south for the winter and not towing through the ice and snow of early January. First time in years we have done this. Our campground celebrates Halloween early and large. On the 7th, we will be joined by our daughter Richelle and her family so we will be able to watch them in a costume parade and trick or treating. Sounds like this will be a fun weekend. Tomorrow we hope to see our grandson, Devin, leading the Brighton High School defense in another victory. Thank you God - Life it good!

We are in Goshen, IN at the Montana Owners' Club Fall Rally. The people are great. We have seen some old friends and met many new ones. About 1/3 of all attendees this year are "newbies," new to the Rally. After yesterday's factory tour and Montana's showing us their new models and some prototypes, we were seriously considering getting a new rig. Soon after we got back to the rig, reality set back in and we are once again content in our home away from home. Wednesday is the day we leave the rally and head back to Michigan. We will be camped in our home park in Davison, MI for a couple of weeks and then leaving for Florida probably about October 14 or 15. We will slowly wend our way down planning on arriving at our winter destination, Wilderness RV Resort in Silver Springs, FL on November 1. We will then drive back to MI without the Monty and spend Thanksgiving and Christmas at home near our family and return to FL right after Christmas. That is the rough plan right now, anyway. We may even meet my sister, Judy, on our way down. Trying to make it happen. That would turn a wonderful trip into a great journey!

We finally are about to set out again in the Montana. Monday, we take it out of storage and set up in our Home Park in Davison, MI, and get it loaded. We have to do this because we have no place to park it at our condo. We will then leave Tuesday or Wednesday for Goshen, IN and our annual Montana Owners' Rally. We are really looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting new ones with similar interests (Montanas). Then we return to Davison for two weeks and then our annual Southbound Tour begins. We will be staying in one location in Florida this year for the first time in a long time. We will be in Silver Springs, in Central Florida. We will be taking about two weeks to travel from Michigan to Florida and are not sure which route we will take - probably put the Ford truck in Cruise Control and see where it takes us.
