August 14, 2014 – A Day in Houghton, MI

Today was one of frustration …trying to figure out how to solve the mystery of my coach steps … which seem to have a mind of their own, extending (while driving down the road) and retracting (when trying to use them at a campground) at will with no realization of the potential consequences.

Aside from a shopping run to Wal-Mart and running a couple of other errands, we sat … although it was not all that bad given our beautiful campsite along the Portage Canal!

This evening we watched the sunset from our “patio”.
