Recon complete MM. Doc gave me the lead and I found this on the website:
"Hidden Hill Campground was founded in 1969 by Harrison resident, Bob McRay. Bob’s granddaughter named the campground “Hidden Hill Campground” because there was a hill between M-61 and the main camping area. There have been four (4) previous owners before the Lehman’s. Joe & Shari Lehman purchased the campground on May 12, 2021 and have re-named it to include “Family.” "

So I guess I can leave my camo paint at home, mystery solved.

Jeff and Wildflower aren't the only ones in full prep mode. I (we) haven't done any distance driving in decades so the other day I started cleaning out/up the truck by doing a full and careful vacuuming, then wiping down all the dust and dirt off the interior surface, also swept out the bed and cleaned out the toolbox (sort of). I have never been much of a detailer since I was in my 20's, but it needs it. All the dusty dirt roan muddy stuff adds up. Today we have the boys, so I thought just washing the floor mats was something I could do while also refereeing 'disagreements'. As soon as I started, the youngest walks over "what cha doin'?" , "washing matts", "can I help?", "sure!". ;D


 


Next thing you know, the second one comes over, "Watcha Doin?"  ;D....... Next thing you know......


 

So I just took photos like a dutiful grandpa. As long as they were on a roll, we scrubbed out the truck bed, cleaned all the glass, and put rain-x on the windshield (haven't done that in decades). I couldn't get the 3rd one to come out of the house, he hates bugs.
 Yesterday when it was raining I worked on carefully putting my wardrobe ensemble together. :D :D (i.e. throwing stuff in a suitcase, and "Honey, where are my jeans without the hole in the crotch?")
 So we are getting ready for the drive starting with (hopefully) an early start on Wednesday.

Thanks Jeff, That did it! Ironically after looking at several thousand of your photos (really, no kidding) The one thing I was missing was ( I think) the most recent. Got them all now.
 Can't wait, really, I can't wait. This is a long time coming for us. I had hoped to make it last year as part of my 'newly retired' status gift to me, but that surely didn't go as any of us planned. ;D I am glad we can sort of 'fix that' now, but am very much bummed about the border still being closed as I wanted to hook up with some of our buddies in slightly colder climes.

I will not be cleaning my truck.  I will drive it home on Sunday and not even disconnect the camper.  Unload all the stuff that I don't need, like kids and wife and all their stuff.  I will likely have to do a little laundry and then throw some more clothes in the camper and head north on Monday.  I'm happy the weather looks like I'll be able to wear some long pants.  Should take me about 10 hours, but with stops maybe 10.5.

Well, you have 2 years to plan. Start going over the route carefully and look for family you can tolerate and old buddies along the way. ;D :D

Last year they switched the fair to the week before rather than the week of the pigroast. This years pig was purchased at the 4H auction last night by our meat packer. We couldn't get one from our fair until this year because of timing. Now we can!

Nancy and I will not be attending due to a schedule conflict.  I have Church Association quarterly events Tuesday and Thursday of that week.  We would be rushed and stressed to get up there, even if we flew.  I have certainly enjoyed all the ones that we have attended and I'm sure this one will be one of the finest.  John Hogue
