Thanks to Dave & Tina and Jim & Michele for sponsoring another great Shipshewana Rally. Murphy; how many coaches were in attendance ?
If you didn't come you also missed out on George Halls most excellent chicken and Rolands Arcade night.
And a shout out to our friends Paul B and Mike M for getting our water pump problem solved. Thank you.

Yes it happened, I was again a witness, but not many pictures,
Close your eyes and imagine, pine trees between all gravel sites, full hook-ups, quiet, great weather, lots of Birds chirping in the pines, horses plowing the near-by fields, beautiful curious horses (looking for carrots) visiting us near the surrounding fences, free ice cream, very relaxing, very peaceful.
Amish breakfast, or bread & pie is the best, dinner out is great and reasonable.
Fresh farm eggs, produce, jam and fruit at road side stands.
Thanks go to the Styf's & Walter's for posting about six years ago,
"We are at the North Amish Cabin Campground anyone want to join us".
Usually the attendance is 30/40 Birds, this year about 33 beautiful Wanderlodges.
Different this year was many of the regular attendees are traveling, but the sites were back filled with about 50% new owners or previous owners that have never attended this rally. So, lots of just sitting around talking and getting antiquated. The surplus and RV salvage hunters arrived days ahead and carried loads of treasure, before the rally started, some still stayed behind to route their summer travels North through Michigan, the Great Lakes areas and the surrounding Midwest States.
Many thanks to George Hall for dragging his smoker along and cooking dozens of chickens, thanks to Karen and Jim G. for waking us up each morning with fresh donuts to go along with Sammy's fresh coffee, ( camp mgr)
If you did not attend you missed a great time, reservations are being made for 2020.
So make plans and bring a camera, you will not be disappointed.
