Met up with RV Habitat friend at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

Last autumn, when Jimmy and I were volunteering for a Habitat for Humanity RV Care-a-Vanner build in Las Cruces, NM, one of the other workers was Bud Frankenberger of Benzonia, MI.

A great side benefit of our meandering RV lifestyle is that we get to make many twists and turns along our six-month journey. One of those delightful twists brought us near Bud, a former college literature professor and winter volunteer at Big Bend National Park.

When not volunteering for Habitat or the NPS, Bud lives in Lower Michigan within 10 miles of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. While it took a bit of maneuvering of schedules, Bud stopped by our Platt River campsite last night and we share a couple cold beers, swapped stories and deepened our friendship.

We hope to cross paths with Bud again in February at Big Bend.
