We left Marquette, MI and headed south over the Mackinaw Bridge. We stayed in Grand Rapids, MI for a couple of days and down to Elkhart, IN. After two weeks stay in Elkhart getting things done on the camper. We headed to the Amana Colonies in Iowa. You can read the history of the Amana Colonies here.
Since we are on the Rally Committee we arrived early to help set up. There were 3 other couples on the committee who arrived early. We did some shopping at Costco and Walmart with Judy and Bob. Judy, I will not mention how long it took to do ALL of the shopping.
Before the main Rally started several of us celebrated Ann’s birthday.
At the start of the rally after the BBQ, we had another birthday cake. It was a special birthday with great friends.
At the Amana Colonies we took a guided tour which included Tom Metz’s house, the local tin smith. His shop was in the basement and the first floor was set up as it was in the 1920s.
We then toured the different colonies.
That’s a Amana Radar Range. The Amana Colonies is where Amana Appliances started.
This is proof that “Life IS good on the Roan Road….”
