A sad day

Today was a very sad day for me. A very good friend of mine passed away today. A man who has been in my life since before I was born. Him and his wife are my parents neighbors. He was a man who didn't judge, but took you as you were for who you were. He taught me many things in life. He taught me to shoot a bow, and thanks to him I went to competition and was third in the state for a year. He bought me my bow that I used in competition. He took me up north with him and his mom.he helped instill in me a love for the outdoors and camping. He was more than a friend, he was my buddy, my mentor, my friend. I have no regrets, only sadness, I spoke with him on the phone a week ago, and he told me he was ready and he wanted to go. I told him, I respected that, but to know that I loved him, for all he had done. You will forever be in my heart, Rest in peace, my friend!

Reservations are made!

Well, the reservations have been made, not exactly where I wanted them, but they are made. Hubby vetoed going across the UP because he is afraid the gas prices are going to be to high, which he probably has a valid point. however, that being said. We are camping at Brimley State Park for our whole vacation this year. I still hope to meet my friend from the Retirement Chronicles, (he said we can drive over that way for a day trip, just not take the camper that far), and my friend from Yooper Yarns, (we need to scope out her campground) and maybe even Sault Boat Watcher. On a happy note, we are finally able to go on the Pictured Rocks cruise, which I have been wanting to do since I was a child. wooo hooo. Some great friends will be camping with us this year, and we are going to go to the Soo Locks Engineer's Day while we are there!
