No Need For A Road Trip

Every summer, my Dad and three of his brothers get together for a trip.  Regardless of the destination, my Uncle Bob wants to drive his RV there.  As he himself will explain, RV does not stand for Recreational Vehicle as you might assume.  The R in this case is for Ridiculous.  It’s big and old and gets about 4 MPG.

This year, they are planning on heading to Taliesin, a Frank Lloyd Wright house near Madison, Wisconsin.  I don’t know why though; they could save about $1000 in gas by driving the RV to Grand Rapids instead and visiting the Meyer May House. It’s a Frank Lloyd Wright house that is currently owned by Steelcase.  Although they use it for private parties, there are also free tours.  I have been twice, and was impressed both times.  I mostly came away wishing that Steelcase would invite me to a party there. 

The tours are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10AM-2PM, and Sundays from 1PM-5PM.  Call (616) 246-4821 for more information. This is really not a great place for kids, or strollers so I recommend it as an adult activity.  It’s nice, and quiet, and you’ll leave there having learned a lot.  There is no RV parking though, so you may have to make other arrangements if that is your ride.

  1. If only you knew someone who could hook you up with a steelcase party. Someone who could be bribed with hummus and cookies…
