Hey Debbie, thanks so much for sharing. I hope you don't mind but I thought I could clean up the color a bit. And the two of the Meadows, they form a panorama, so I stitched them together (sorry for the WIDE picture). Here are the retouched versions:

IIRC that's the only RV you ever drove any distance in.

Or was that the next one? I can't keep track of your RVs

If you look closely at site 915, you'll notice how the site was carved out of the woods, and that the pad is ashphalt and the overall site was quite small. Our MH was a 17.5' Class C - which IIRC, Class C's back then only went up to 23'. Notice the site marker is on the right side & set way back. Now they are on the left side & moved closer to the road. If you look real close at the picture of Meadow Trading, you can see the train track & in the left background, the movie theater.

Yes, but it can be done in most any photo editing program: Photoshop Elements, Paintshop, JASC, Gimp.

Debbie, if you'd like to have me correct your hi-rez versions of these pics I'd be glad to, just PM me.

Wow, you brought back sooooo many memories. That camper was very close to the size my grandmother had and took us to the Fort with when I was a kid. Oh, I miss that train.
