While we were there, Caitlin and Dawn befriended and rescued an elusive stray cat that had been hanging around for about a week. The poor thing was very thin and flea-bitten, but she was sweet as could be once she realized we weren’t going to hurt her. Within a few days of bringing her to the Humane Society of Midland County, she had adoption applications on her ready to give her a new home!
Sugar Springs is a beautiful quiet community centered around 2 lakes and includes some private features such as a golf course, campground, airstrip, and trail system. While we were there Dave had the opportunity to do some flying and Tom was able to join him with a drone! Take a look at the gallery for more pictures! We stayed in sugar springs for a week relaxing and getting our feet (or should I say “wheels”) under us after all the work getting out of our house. We want to send a BIG thank you to Dave and Ellen, for allowing us to stay on your property for a few days. The peace and tranquility was just what the doctor ordered! Plus, it allowed us some time to get to know our “new” fifth wheel (see right).
We took all the wheels off to inspect the brakes and hubs. We will be needing some new brake magnets, but the Never-Lube hubs on our Doubletree/DRV looked okay. We ordered a spare hub just in case.
The weekend we were there happened to be the campground’s Halloween weekend, and we got to hand out candy to the trick or treating kids all dressed up. Most of them collected bucket loads of candy! Why didn’t we go to campgrounds for trick or treating as kids??
Farm Days of Fall
Luckily, our dear friends Tim and Aleta have this cute, quiet farm that we were invited to park on for our wedding recovery. Did we mention she has two horses?? Caitlin was in horse heaven! And so was Aleta; it’s always more fun to have a riding partner!
It was so good to be back in the saddle for both of them!
