7 Days Makes One . . . Sad

That’s because we have only 7 days of RV travel left this year.

That gets us back to Houston, visiting two sets of relatives along the way, then out to south Texas for gate guarding, and then back to Houston the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Of course that doesn’t include any possible moves from gate to gate, but we’re thinking about trying to stay at just one gate this time,

The good news is that Two Weeks from Today! we get to see Landon again. And the rest of the family too, of course.


For the people who are looking for more info on gate guarding, you might want to start with our April 5, 2012 blogs. Also you can check down the right side of our blog where you will find a number of other blogs by RV’ers that either are gate guarding now, or have gate guarded in the past. Check ‘em out.


After another nice, quiet morning, Jan and I heading out about 1pm to drive some of the countryside around Shipshewana. But our first stop was the RV/MH Hall of Fame again. But this time it was to look for a geocache located there. Barb Westerfield had asked us to check it out and see if the container needed to be repaired. But when I found where it was supposed to be, it wasn’t there. So I called Barb and found out that a local guy had picked it up and was taking care of it. No problem.

Then it was on to Shipshewana. We took a back road over that way, then took SR 5 through town and past all the Amish business. We saw one place that must have had a 100 buggies parked all around with everyone dressed up. Figured it must be a wedding.

Cutting across through the mostly Amish farmland, we headed toward Millersburg. It’s easy to tell the Amish farms; very big, very neat, no power lines, and a little phone hut out front. It’s also strange to see a big combine being pulled by a team of four horses.

Looping back around and coming into Goshen from the south, we stopped at a Dunkin Donuts for coffee, and some donut holes to go. Apparently no one calls them ‘holes’ anymore. Dunkin calls them Munchkins, while Tim Horton’s calls them Timbits.

Finally coming back into Elkhart, we checked out a couple of RV parts stores before realizing it was about 4:30 and we were starting to get hungry. Since we hadn’t had steak for a while, the nearby Texas Roadhouse seemed to be in order. We always get a good steak there, and today was no exception.

Finally it was home for the night. Tomorrow it’s back to Mishawaka for some things and maybe a movie.
