My kids love to watch Survivor. One of their favorites is Erik Reichenbach from Survivor Fans vs. Favorites because he is from Michigan. Actually he is from a town not far from here. It is known that he worked at Screams ice cream store in Hell, Michigan. Today we went there to rent a canoe to take a trip upon several local lakes. The kids were so excited that we were going there to take our canoe trip and asked if we would see Eric. I said I was unsure if he still worked there. We did not see him there and the kids were a little bummed.
After we left Hell. We went back home and decided to meet my mom and my niece and nephew at a local farm market that has a straw maze the kids love to play in. While the kids were playing my husband I were sitting near by watching and I saw a guy walk in with a bright orange Hell, Michigan T-shirt. Lo and behold it was Erik Reichenbach. So the kids would get to meet him afterall. When I told my son he was there and he was sure I was just trying to tease him.
The kids were so excited. He was very nice to talk to with them and take a picture . He and my son sat and talked awhile before he left. I know it made his day.
