In with the new!

My wonderful husband had his hands full this week, removing this old behemoth

from the “black hole”

and putting the new Onan 6.5 gas (being converted to propane) generator where the tool box used to ride.

The parts for the conversion arrived yesterday, so I suppose that’s coming up soon on the agenda.

This week was homecoming at Sedgwick, so we watched the parade on Friday afternoon. It’s a small school, so it was a pretty short parade, but I caught a couple of our personal highlights.

The football game, along with coronation of the homecoming king and queen, was Friday night. The women were lovely, the guys were studly and the game? Well, the game, from the Sedgwick standpoint, was a dud. I don’t think I’ve ever been to such a high scoring football game, though. 74-46! Something was going on all the time, usually leading to a score. There’s always next year, I guess.

Yesterday was an example that there is always something to see in Kansas. We had to choose which to attend and we chose a vintage trailer show at Dexter, KS. There were also a couple older RVs, very similar to some we had earlier. One was a yellow GMC motorhome from 1973. We had one that the previous owner had named the ‘Nanner Hilton, for obvious reasons.

We’ve never had one of these Glamper campers but we certainly enjoyed looking at what other people have done to them. I think there were 15 towables and motorhomes, so I’ll just show some of my favorites.

Our friends Gene and Linda Stratton have a vintage camper they call Louise, which had her maiden voyage to Golden Bell a year ago in the summer. They were at another similar show in Abilene, KS yesterday, but I missed seeing Louise. Linda has fixed the inside in such a cute way. It would be a fun vacation spot.

We’ve had word that changes are happening in the Golden Bell RV park, big changes! The Bluebird bus that was donated to the camp years ago and has been a thorn in the side of park hosts for a good while was moved out this week! Next on the agenda, we understand, is dirt work and tree work to allow easier maneuvering for today’s big rigs. We’ll be eager to see the final product once the team is done.
