'We belong to the Little Dixie Dampers Association and to the state and national association. Ne have camped all over Vlissdouri and we have gone to ,wo nationals and a lot of egional meetings. You meet so many nice people camping," he added. Marshall also enjoys tinkering with antique clocks. I have a couple of old, old ones," he said.
