Jun 21, 2015 - Arkansas and Indiana

6/1/15 – Frog Hollow RV Park, Grenada, MS was our overnight stop. One of the rare places we’ve been in recent times that did not have Verizon 3 or 4G but they supplied Wi-Fi. 6/2/15 – We have been living with two cracked windshields one of which is leaking for way too long, so here we are at the RV Fog Dr. in Searcy, AR to finally get this resolved. This facility has sewer, water and 50 amp hook-ups for its customers. Our small kitchen window has been fogged up for a long time, so we expected to get it repaired also. They informed us that...

Jun 16, 2015 - Southeast Indiana

Arrived in Batesville, Indiana feeling rather sad to leave beautiful Black Mountain, NC. But what we found was a charming area in Indiana. It always helps when we find another rv park that is well kept and friendly, which this one definitely was. In Batesville we found two well known companies, one of which makes caskets and the other one that makes hospital furniture. Both of these factories were huge and probably employed a good portion of the town. We inquired about taking a tour of the casket company (I know that sounds morbid), but...

Jun 16, 2012 - Obstacles in Ohio

Oh boy…what a month it has been. Dad is doing relatively well and continuing his physical and occupation therapy. He has good days and bad days, and is making a little progress, physically. We are continuing to go over as much as we can, but a wrench was thrown into the mix. On May 22 we celebrated the 4th anniversary of my sister, Diane’s, heart transplant. On May 28 she closed on her house after being on the market for over two years. She’s moving back to Texas where her children live. On May 31 she went to Cincinnati for a routine...

May 11, 2011 - Batesville, IN

We're on our way to North Carolina!!! We stopped overnight at a Thousand Trails Campground in Batesville, IN. This town is the home of Batesville Casket Company, one of the leading casket companies in the Midwest. No one asked us if we wanted to buy one or try one on for size, though. Thank heavens! LOL

Sep 12, 2010 - Time to move on

Trying to decide where to go and what to do is always a struggle because we want to see it all and I am not the most patient person. Today we decided we are going to explore the Land of Lincoln....Illinois. With that chore completed, we were able to start putting things away. The day before leaving is always our neat and tidy day. You know, get the laundry done, prepare some food for on the road, put the BBQ away and print out the maps. Piece of cake!! Thats what we have done today, always anxious for whats beyound the next stop...

Sep 9, 2010 - Cincinnati

I wanted to take my time and see everything on my list, so we got a early start and arrived in Cincinnati right at 10 AM. I had googled all the adventures and had our map plotted. First on my list of things to do was to see the William H Taft National Historic Site. My directions looked simple enough or so I thought. One hour later, we arrived. The visitors center tells the quick story of his life and then you are asked if you are ready for the tour. We are introduced to Ranger Reginald and away we go, across the lawn and into the home that...

Sep 4, 2010 - Corn fields and Covered Bridge

I had been doing some research on where any Covered Bridges might be in Southern Indiana and found one less then 10 miles away. Off we went in search of the Covered Bridge. All I knew was that it was in Enochsburg. We found it without a problem. Getting back to the freeway was a different story. Somehow I made a complete circle and found my way back to the bridge for a second time. OK....I will try this again but the corn stalks and soy bean fields do not provide very good landmarks, thus each road looks the same. We finally found our way...

Sep 3, 2010 - Village of Spires

We found a lovely little German town called Oldenburg and it is best known for its Church Spires. We spent several hours here looking at all the different churches. The Sisters of St Francis Convent of Immaculant Conception takes up most of the town. Acoss the street from the Convent is The Holy Family Church. I have noticed in our travels that all the churches in the small towns have there own Cemetaries. For that reason I assume, these cemetaries are well taken care of. We enjoy the different head stones and how old some of them are. The...

Sep 2, 2010 - Indianapolis

Our plans today were to go to the Indianapolis 500 Hall of Fame. Neither Mom or I had ever been there and I had fond memories as a child of Mom and Dad listening to the race on the radio. We decided to catch Camping World and Walmart while we were in the area. We found our way without a problem. Claudia(my GPS) is not functioning right now and I have been using Mapquest instead. Sometimes Mapquest can send you to the moon without you even realizing it. The Hall of Fame is found at Gate 2 and thats the beginning of feeling like you are in a...

Aug 31, 2010 - Thank you Benji

As usual, we begin our day by walking Benji and today was no different. Off we went, not paying attention to what direction we were going, just walking. We then noticed that we were in front of the 50 AMP full Hookup sites(the ones we wanted). As we walked around, I thought I saw a empty site and I did but someone was pulling a car into the space to hold it. Just our luck....5 minutes to late. We continued on, checking out all the sites, looking for any indication that they might be leaving. We had almost finished the whole loop, when I...

Aug 30, 2010 - No A/C

What a day!! We have done 2 lane roads and I do mean roads, not highways, big bridges, little bridges, crossed creeks and rivers, big and small and crossed a time zone. We pulled into Indian Lakes Thousand Trails Preserve around 4 PM I was so sceptical about this place as the last 2 Thousand Trails have not been much to speak of. The Ranger abruptly told me there were no 50 AMP available and the 30 AMP sites did not come with sewer. Well, that is some greeting. Its a week before the Labor Day Holiday and they have nothing. I am already...

Jul 6, 2010 - The "I's" Have It...

...Iowa and Indiana, that is! After spending two nights in Iowa, we arrived in Monticello, Indiana on July 8th, a small Mid-western town about 90 miles northwest of Indianapolis. We stayed at White Oaks, an ROD Park, and since we had just spent several days travelling across the North, we were ready to sit still for a few days. We hadn’t stayed at this park before, so it would be fun exploring the area. If we had a boat it would be an excellent spot because the campground sits right on the banks of Freeman Lake. It seemed like ever since we...
