Our location - Hopkins, MI

Hidden Ridge RV Resort


After a couple of nights in Indiana on our way north, we crossed over into Michigan on I-65. 

By the way, we have been successfully towing Tige and Sparky behind Red Rover through Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan.  Most, if not all, weigh stations have been closed.  But we have seen and have been passed by State Patrol vehicles with not a speck of interest in our "train." Let's hope it continues!

Hopkins, MI Entering Michigan.
Hopkins, MI Hidden Ridge RV Resort is one of the most amenity-rich parks we have visited.  It is only 3 years old.  That means the roads are paved, the pads are concrete, the electric power is perfect, the Wi-Fi is included in the rate, and the pool is sparkling!

Hopkins, MI The sites are all back-in sites.  They are good sized, The only negative is that about 2/3's of the sites are geared for passenger side back-in, a difficult maneuver for Red Rover. Hopkins, MI

Hopkins, MI The pool!. It was blistering hot on the day we arrived.  As soon as the rig was unhitched and the slides were out, we headed straight for this pool.  Our first swimming of the year.

Hopkins, MI One of the reasons we wanted to stop in this area of Michigan (near Grand Rapids), was to visit Tom Edmonds.  Tom and Mark served together in the same unit in Vietnam 40 years ago.
Hopkins, MI Tom and his family moved here recently from Northern Virginia where he was very involved in organizing get togethers for the "Blue Stars," their Army unit.

Hopkins MI "It's a small world after all...."

When we pulled into our site, we noticed a Travel Supreme that looked a lot like ours.

It turned out that it was the same Travel Supreme that was parked next to us at the Travel Supreme plant last year.

It is similar to ours in being a 2006 with similar floorplans.
Hopkins MI Ed and Mary Jo Andrews are full timers.  They still hang around Michigan because Ed still does some hay bailing.

We had a grand time swapping stories and fixes and changes we each had developed over the last year.
