Greetings from NW Ohio...it's late October, and the trees / foliage are changing to beautiful colors. My TR6 "crew" (wife Rhoda and dog Happy ) and I like to get in a final mission before putting Tillie away for the winter.
One of our favorite destinations this time of year is "Hidden Lake Gardens" in Tipton,Michigan...only about 60 miles from our home base. In 1926, Adrian, Mich. businessman Henry Fee bought "Hidden Lake" and the surrounding 200 acres as a retirement home. He soon decided the land would best be used as a plant /shrub nursery. In 1945, Mr. Fee donated the land to Michigan State University to be used for the public benefit. Today the original 200 acres has expanded to 755 acres, with more than 6 miles of paved one - way roads and 10 miles of hiking paths. Several endowments ensure future generations will enjoy Mr. Fee's vision.
Wife Rhoda and dog Happy...note the dog drool down the passenger door !
Happy wearing his flight "Doogles"
Unfortunately he doesn't like wearing them when not in motion!
Please try not to focus on my lovely wife and note the GoPro camera mounted on the windshield. :-)
I keep working with my GoPro and a recently acquired remote microphone for a better combination of video and sound. Here are 5 short clips from our ride on the 15 mph one - way roads in the Gardens. Please excuse the "cockpit chatter", there was just too much to comment on!
Ok, so I made a mistake on this video clip...everything is fast forward and no sound, but it's a fun 14 seconds ride!
Well gentle readers, since it's almost November, and Miss Tillie is in the garage being prepared for her winter nap. I hope you all have a great Nov. and Dec. season.
Best Wishes, Jim and the "Crew"
