Sometimes you have such a great time with such great friends it's impossible to explain to others. This past weekend there was a Geocaching Event called Are You Geocacher Enough? A few friends had attended it last year and said it was a fun time so we decided to go this year. It was in Roscommon, MI which is almost 5 hours north of us. Fred took Friday off work and we headed up. From then till Sunday it was non stop fun. Even with a few major problems it couldn't stop our good time.
Here is our new tent all setup. It was our first time using this one and I have to say I'm very pleased with it. It rained hard several times and only 4 drops got in the tent from a lower vent we think which is totally acceptable.
Sunday a few got up and hit the trails again but we decided to get the stuff tore down and get ready for the long ride home. One bad thing about this campground was no shower so I was a special kind of stinky and couldn't wait for a shower. We hit the road home at about 2pm and the Nuvi said expect to be home 6:30pm.
4:30pm I heard Fred said Uh Oh. Which is never a good sign. Yep for the 3rd time since Christmas the truck broke down on the way home. This time it was the water pump. I got on the phone to locate friends and 2 groups were still behind us. Amber got on the phone to coordinate Tim showing up where we were. The other group showed up to coordinate running to the local store to get some parts. Tim showed up and he had all the tools we needed. We got moved to a safer location than along side the road and settled in for the repair. It took longer than it was supposed to but the fix was made and at 9pm we finally hit the road again. We made it home at midnight took showers and quickly passed out.
What I learned. Thank you is not a big enough word to express how much I appreciate the help my friends gave us. Friends is not a big enough word to describe the people I have in my life. There are no words in the English language to describe what I want to say. I swear I am the luckiest person alive!!!!!!
