Jul 7, 2012 - Angola, IN
Hi All, Here we landed in a place called Angola in IN , staying here for two nights. Hot air ballons fest going on here. The weather is not cooperating so the balloons were not able to fly, too bad we did not get to see that. I have a few pictures I might add later, having a good time. Until later, Jim and KathyJump to full entry
Aug 4, 2011 - 4 August - Pokagon State Park
Whoever thought that Angola is a country in south-central Africa bordered by Namibia on the south is mistaken. It is actually in Indiana where Pokagon State Park is located. The American's haven't been very original naming parts of their country !! We arrived quite late and left the next morning. We were very lazy here and didn't even get our to explore the area!! So I have nothing else to say about the park so here are a few facts instead: Pokagon State Park is located near Angola, just off I-69. The park was originally called Lake James...Jump to full entry
Aug 1, 2010 - Day 49
Today Jean’s family came to visit and we had a picnic and a good time. Jean hasn’t seen her family in two years so it was nice to spend the day together. It was nice early today, but it got real muggy again this afternoon. It doesn’t look like we’ll get cooled off any time soonJump to full entry
Jul 31, 2010 - Days 47 and 48
To date we’ve traveled 4,374 miles in the motor home and almost 1,000 miles in the car. Yesterday and today we traveled from Mackinaw City, MI to Angola, IN. After leaving Mackinaw City we stopped at the Cross in the Woods in Indian River, MI. What a beautiful worship space - a lovely church and a beautiful outdoor setting for Mass with a large crucifix overlooking the entire area. Other than that we just drove to get to Angola. Last night we had our 2nd worst campsite of the trip, but all things considered we’ve done pretty good in our...Jump to full entry
Oct 13, 2009 - Dinner with Jeff & Melissa in Angola, IN
We arrived at Jeff and Melissa's in the late afternoon. They had just gotten home from a weeks vacation in Alabama with the girls and the Smiths. Even though the vacant lot next door was sold, we were still allowed to park there. Jeff provided us with electricty and we were home for the night. Grandma Becky came over to bring Madison home and babysit for Reagan and Karsen so we could go out to dinner. Jeff and Mellissa took us out for Mexican and the meal was great. Vince was staying with the Rhodes so he came with us and Mark, who works...Jump to full entry
Apr 20, 2009 - Circle B Campground, Angola, Indiana.
Well the truck made it into the garage first thing this morning. I think they were waiting for me because only one car in the front lot and the guys were sitting in the waiting room sucking on this mornings coffee. I entered and all three mechanics disappeared into the garage. I yelled "Guy's you don't have to take off because of me!!" The lovely Lady behind the counter said "It's 8 am and time to work." I told her I had a fan belt to replace and before I had finished browsing through a small Dive Magazine they were closing the hood on the...Jump to full entry
Oct 19, 2007 - On the move again.
Yes, we are on the move again and will be in a different place every day for the next two weeks until we get to Arizona. We woke up to a balmy 19C (66.2F) this morning. After a week of daily highs of 10C (50F) in Ottawa, it seemed like summer was back. We arrived at the border crossing in Sarnia around 8:45 a.m. This is the Blue Water Bridge and it spans between Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan. I wish I had thought to take a picture. You get a really nice view of Lake Huron and the water was a beautiful green colour....Jump to full entry
