When Tom and I decided to get married in 1978, we arranged for our parents to meet on a camping trip at Hocking Hills State Park in Southeast Ohio. The event took place around August 11th, 1978, just one month before the wedding. Both the Browns and the Kintners enjoyed the hiking on the many trails of Hocking Hills. I dug out some pictures of this great event:
We were so thrilled about Hocking Hills that in February, 1979, we went back for a winter visit in Tom’s parent’s VW camping bus! To this day it is one of the coldest winters that we ever remember, as illustrated in the pictures we took. Every stream and every waterfall was frozen solid, but we slept snugly in the VW van and have cherished the memories ever since.
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
