RV Adventures: A trip to the Upper Peninsula, Michigan Day 1

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

This morning we left early to get on the road to our first campground in Grayling, Michigan. It is located about 45 miles from Traverse City.

“Miss Daisy” is packed and ready to go!

Our dog, Matilda, went on this trip with us. She still is very scared of riding in the RV. We tried calming chews, a thunder coat, individually and together, but those solutions did not help her anxiety. We talked to our veterinarian and she now has a prescription that we give her at least 2 hours before we get on the road. So we got up at 3:00 AM to give her the prescribed dose and then tried to get a few hours of additional sleep before our departure at 6:00. We actually left our home at 6:15ish! Not bad!

Our drive was uneventful! We arrived at Headwaters Campground without any delays! We enjoyed walking around the area and it felt good to stretch our legs. Matilda was especially happy that the RV was stopped and we weren’t going anywhere! It was a nice campground. We noticed that most of the campgrounds in the lower and upper peninsula were closing at various times in October.

This evening was spent resting for our big day tomorrow where we will be exploring Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore.
