Once I hit the road, a very peaceful feeling settled over me and I was tempted to keep going on forever. I didn't though. But ever since I went to Girl Scout Camp at Clear Lake after fifth grade, I have always been overwhelmed by the incredible beauty of the outdoors, and how invigorating and comforting to spend extended time in nature. I was amazed that the counselors got to spend all summer at a place like that. I attended church camp for several years and the summer after my junior year, worked at our church camp, Pilgrim Heights. We tent camped with our kids and friends in the early years of our marriage and as we got older, switched to something with a real bed. Some of our happiest times were in those campers. "Re-creation" has real meaning spent outdoors.
Agatha started without the charger but there is still a problem with some kind of relay (technical talk) that hopefully will be addressed by the dealer in May. I have to have her back in June for the Frannie Shoemaker Campground Mystery tour with the Serro Scotty organization, a group out of Michigan of vintage camper enthusiasts. I am really looking forward to that. We will be visiting five campgrounds in Minnesota and Iowa that are sites for the Frannie books.
