It is the time of year for camping out. A few weeks ago some quilting friends went on a road trip into Colorado in a motor home. We went to the Wray Quilt show and visited two fabric shops. Jim Cramer drove the group in the motor home. It was a fun trip as he cooked for the ladies on the grill in a park.

Years ago Harry was in a cowboy accident with a horse in Wyoming and had broken his knee and was off work for a while. Mable Deaver who owned the local café told me I could take her motor home and drive him to Nebraska. I did and we came home for a week or so. We also traveled some with Norma and Gerold Bodeman in their camper.

It was fun to take a one day trip to Wray. When we got tired of walking we could go back to the motor home, relax with tea or take a bathroom break.

Thanks for the experience, Cramers!
