Goodbye to Elkhart and Great Friends . . .

Today was a travel day so I was up at 7 to start coffee and packing away things in the coach. About 7:30 I woke up Sweetie, and after her shower, we sat around and enjoyed our coffee for a while, before we got back to work getting things stowed away.

A little before 10 I cranked up the diesel and then Jan and I went outside say our goodbyes to Nick and Terry. It’s hard to believe we may not see them again until next March. What am I going to do when I need to fix something for someone?

After some tearful hugs, we finally pulled out of Elkhart Campground a little after 10 and headed south.

Our trip took us down US 31 to the loop around Indianapolis and then east on I-74 for a total of about 235 miles.

About 2:30 we stopped for diesel at a Pilot just outside Shelbyville, IN. It was probably the smoothest refuel I’ve ever had at a truck stop. I was in and out in just a little over 15 minutes for 120 gallons of diesel. Wish they were all like this.

We pulled in the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails about 3:30, and quickly checked in, found a nice site and got set up. We’re in one of the 44 full hookup sites, and although the park is heavily wooded, it’s open enough here so that we had no problem getting a satellite signal.

About 5 we headed back up I-74 about 25 miles to Greensburg, the closest town with a Wal-Mart. After eating dinner at a Frisch Big Boy, we picked up some things at Wal-Mart and headed back home. It started to rain while we were in Wal-Mart and was pouring down all the way back. I wasn’t looking forward to unloading the truck in the rain, but luckily it really slacked off by the time we got home.

After raining through tomorrow it’s supposed to clear and just get cold. Highs in the low 50’s and lows in the low 30’s, but it is supposed to be sunny for a change from Elkhart. We’ll see.


Thought for the Day:

Any man who thinks for a half second that he understands a woman, has his timing just about perfect.
