We had a trade show here in town and Lake Haven is the perfect spot to park while touring the city and the surrounding area.
They are about a mile off the expressway so it’s fairly quiet. A mile away from a really nice Kroger grocery store, GREAT chinese take-out (Hong Kong) and CVS Pharmacy.
In the years that we’ve been coming here theirs barely been any kids staying here. So the park stays quiet. Our 43 foot motorcoach can fit easily with our tow. And this year when we arrived, they had paved some of the streets. So they are improving the park. One of the improvements I know they could improve upon is their WiFi. They do have park wide WiFi but it is slow and can be spotty. Hopefully when we come back, which we will, that will be improved too.
They do have some seasonal/long term residents but on the upside they keep their sites neat and are very friendly. We met some wonderful people in the park while flying around. Don, Gayle and their puppy recognized our coach from following our blog and said Hi. Nice people and one of the longer term residents of the park.
So if you ever see us somewhere, please stop us and introduce yourselves.
So our trade show was just 8 miles or so straight up the road to the convention center and it couldn’t be any easier for us and our trade show. You know, we used to have to fly to these things. Stay in hotels. Eat out all the time. I know…say it isn’t so. But people still do that believe it or not.
Not us…Now we just hop in the motorhome, load up the cats and go. It’s so nice coming home to your own bed, eating your own food and having your whole furry family with you while toiling away all day at the show. It makes things so much nicer and more relaxed.
When we arrived at the show we noticed that one company actually had a Prevost wrapped in their company logo and they were parked across the street from the show. This acted as their “suite” for big wigs that needed a place to meet. David of course took this opportunity to fly his quadcopter and get some great shots right their in the parking lot. (A quick up and down as he knows the owner and wanted to do it for him.)

At the show David did find some new FPV (first person view) glasses from Epson.

The Church Next Door And David Flying The Quadcopter
I have a feeling a pair of these may be in our future.
While back at Lake Haven Retreat David flew the quadcopter several times around the park getting some great shots of the park. Below is a quick video that he shot around the park. Hope you enjoy it.
Tomorrow we’re moving north to Michigan to explore that whole area. Any suggestions would be nice as we have never been there before.
