My day started earlier than normal. The Traditional service at the North Liberty United Methodist Church is held at 8 am. The church is about 6 miles from the campground. This meant I had to get up about 6:30 in order to get ready for church. There weren't but about 25 people there, but I was told that they usually have many more.

We had purchased a kit to "hook" around the awning arm to apply tension so the wind will not mess up the awning, however since our awning is so high, the rope is too short. We just hammered the really big nails we have into the ground and wrapped the lines of the drop shade around them, now if it starts to ...
