Shafer's Show and Tell
On Friday July 25 we moved our motorhome from Maumee State Park to Delta, Ohio for the annual “show and tell “at Shafer’s, the dealer where we bought our motorhome in 2006. On the way we had to stop at Freightliner in Toledo for a recall. They took care of us in an efficient manner. We arrived in Delta in the early afternoon, and many coaches followed. We counted 9 in total, so we had a nice crowd.
Shafer RV was having an open house on Saturday and Sunday. Our Winnebago club is sponsored by the dealer, and in return we help them out with serving the refreshment and sharing our experiences with future Winnebago owners. The ice cream machine is always a hit.
We volunteered to be wagon masters for this weekend, and we had some additional duties. We drove to Archbold to find a farm stand and bought 65 ears of fresh corn. We did not have the right equipment to cook this in the usual manner. Thanks to Diane and Chuck, the corn was done right on time and delicious, but it caused some stress. We cooked lots of baked potatoes, and as is tradition, the Shafer family provided us with the steaks. We had a great dinner.
At night we sat around the motorhomes and exchanged stories all about our travels.
On Sunday afternoon we all left after a great weekend get together.
