Several years ago we were in our favorite campground, weathering a deluge, sitting in our cabin cruiser (outdrive blew up on day #1 of the outing), on the trailer, parked by our drenched tent. The neighbors arrived earlier in a Winnebago with no exhaust and plenty of green stuff growing on most of the exterior, opended the awning and dispersed the contents of an unsuccesful lawn sale about the area.

So far not a top 10 outing, huh?

You guessed it, crash and down comes the Winnebago's moldy 20 year old awning.

So the next morning the neighbors climb up on the RV and used ROCKS from the fire pit to hold the torn edge of the awning back on top of the roof...

We left before the headaches were handed out .

This past June, while volunteering as the campground host, I was walking through the campground and this is what I found.

I like it - very good use of resources. Make your living and relax all in one vehicle.

I didn't actually see this one, but my friend did. A couple & their kids came to Warren Dunes in Michigan with their pop-up. As all of you know, it's great entertainment to watch other people set up, so my friends had their chairs pointed in the direction of the most recent victims of entertainment. After getting all situated & set up, the couple sent their kids off to the lake & decided to have some time alone (if you know what I mean). A few minutes later, the entire pop-up tipped over (they forgot to put the legs down) and the couple came rolling out the bed end stark naked! They ran back in the camper, got dressed, and packed back up & left (I assume they got the kids back!). I think that's the funniest camping story I've ever heard!

Talking Mh At The Boat Launch

Got to Horney Hollow Camp ground just in time to see the MH backing

up to the launch ramp with a fully equipped medium sized fishing boat. From

the look of it a fairly new set-up.

As I watched I thought to my-self, he's backing kind of far down the ramp.

Just about then the MH stopped and the avid fisherperson emerged, walked

back to the hitch and proceeded to un-hook!!! Left the Boat and trailer

sitting on the ramp, got back in the MH and parked it. Returned to the boat,

dropped the motor, started up and went off across the lake for an afternoon

of peaceful fishing, with the trailer firmly attached.

Several hours later he returned and the procedure was reversed!!!

After talking with several regulars at the CG, we found out that this was a

common occurance whenever said Fisherperson was in attendance....

Mistral Blue,

I will remember this one the next time I do something really stupid! I won't feel so bad. Too funny! Did the guy audition for the movie RV?
