Darke Side of the Moon

We travelled to Greenville, Ohio to join the Darke Side of the Moon Solar Eclipse 2024. The local Airstream club organized 160 Airstreams to gather at the Darke County Fairgrounds. We joined the Wisc-UP group to watch the event together.

Kelly did his best to capture images with his iPhone and with his Celestron C90mm Spotting Scope (a gift from Greg Noble) and our 10 year old Canon Alpha A6000 camera. It was hard to get the focus perfect, but I think there are a couple of good pictures. It was amazing how dark it got; pictures and video do not do it justice. It was really cool.

Door County & Rally

In July, we traveled to Door County Wisconsin and went to the Door County Airstream Rally.

We met Terry and Kirk on our way to the Rally in Shawano Wisconsin. We stayed at Fawn Lake Campground for 3 nights. The group dinner at Classic’s Restaurant and Lounge; a cool place with classic rock as their theem.

While on a beer run, Terry and Kelly stopped at Twig’s Beverage and Museum; super cool place where they make and bottle old fashion soda.

We had lunch at Stubborn Brothers Brewery located in an old theater and enjoyed a beer flight. The beer was so good we bought some 32 ounce cans and Kelly filled his growler.

Terry and Pam visited Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant & Butik where they have goats on the roof keeping the grass roof in shape.

Next, we attended the Door County Airstream Rally in Sturgeon Bay, WI. We met up with a bunch of old friends, including the entire Robertson’s family from Kansas! Great time!

After the rally, Terry and Kirk headed home. Pam and Kelly headed to Hy-land Court RV Park in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin. We rode our bikes to the Ferry and went to Washington Island. There, we biked over 30 miles and visited a Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm, Moutain Park Lookout Tower, Jacobsen Museum, Jackson Harbor Soup for beer and chips before heading back to the ferry. Great time on the island.

Next, we headed to Sheboygan, Wisconsin and stayed at Kohler-Andrae State Park for a few days. We visited the Kohler showroom for ideas. Enjoyed lunch at the American Club’s Horse & Plow Pub where Kelly had a flight of Bacon. Yes, 4 different styles of thick cut bacon – Wow!

TCPC Airstream

Today, we arrived at an all Airstream Campground. Tennessee Cumberland Plateau Campground (TCPC) which only allows Airstreams. We scored a fully developed site (17) with a shelter and nice deck. The site just sold today for $46,000. The HOA are around $2,000 per year.

On our first night, they held their first “Happy Hour” in the woods. A fun time – see our You Tube video.

Airstream Upgrades

Over the past couple of months, we upgraded a few items. These are detailed on our equipment pages:

We changed our dinette table to a smaller oak table that allows for seating along the back.

New Table

We doubled our battery capacity and added 600 watts of solar on the roof. Our inverter is now 3000 watts so we are ready to go off grid for weeks at a time.

Ride1Up eBikes.

We added these 2 bikes so we can easily get around camp grounds and cities where we visit.
