Maron Campground - Labor Day 2008!

The unofficial end of summer “Labor Day” generally brings the gang together again to enjoy each others company and companionship, along with the celebration of “THE CAPTIAN’S” birthday. Labor Day 2008 was enjoyed by everyone at the Maron campground. Most of us are college football fans, especially Michigan State. We had one exception in the group this year. We connected the Captain’s flat panel TV to the satellite dish to watch football games from the campground. Sure looks like ruff’n it to me!

Fred and Linda arrive with the Pop-UP camper. Next year they may have a new trailer. Linda can only hope! Bil and Dorothy’s coach with the Jeep Liberty as the tow vehicle packed in campsite II. The gang sitting around the campfire watching one of the football games on TV.

The Captain’s coach on campsite III. You can also see the flat panel TV in the picnic table. Troy (KC8TVH) and Susan joined in on the festivities.

What a great weekend for camping. The weather couldn't have been better! Everyone watching the dinner cook on the open fire.

Nothing like a good fire to start preparing the next meal. Bob and Bil discussing if the Tripod used for cooking can be resident on 40 meters.

Maggie and Sammy snuggle up for some attention and love The Captain reading the “words of wisdom” from his birthday cards.

Mom and Sally enjoying the campfire. It’s been a custom for a number of years to celebrate the “Captain’s” birthday with the passing around of the “Boons farm” wine. Well if you can call it wine. Bil generally supplies the libations and by then end of the night its generally gone! Troy even got into the spirit this year.
