May 8, 2014 - Popcorn Tour & The Pines for Dinner

Today was a great day. Started off with a tour of the Popcorn Factory at 10am. Then a nice dinner at the Pines with a small but great buffet. The Popcorn factory tour was super. The best deal for only $2.00 per person. In May of 1989, Carol Buck (known as Mrs. Carol) started her dream with only 8 flavors of popcorn. Now 18 years later, she has over 350 flavors, which makes Carol's product unique. She formulated every flavor from scratch and all processes are done by hand (No Automation Here!). We just could not believe how many flavors she...

Oct 22, 2011 - Exiting Indiana; Heading South

Another interesting state discovered. We really have enjoyed seeing and exploring parts of Indiana and have already put it on our ‘must return and revisit’ list. As with many other places we have stayed a lot of our plans were thwarted by bad weather and Indiana was no different. As you already know, we by-passed the area around Elkhart and headed straight south to Camp Atterbury. There were many things we still want to see up in the northern part of the state after reading the wonderful experiences Rudy and Linda shared in their post...

Oct 20, 2011 - Camp Atterbury's History

When we were checking out places to stay as we traveled through Indiana, we saw there was an RV park at Camp Atterbury. Neither one of us had ever heard of the Camp, but certainly liked the fact the RV park has full hook-ups and pull through sites with hard packed gravel and certainly the price was right at $15/night! As we are about to leave the Camp on Saturday, I decided to do a little bit of research about the Camp to find out its history and found some of the things I found out rather fascinating and hope you will as well. The post or...

Oct 3, 2011 - A Long 248 Miles to Camp Atterbury

Brrrrr, it was really chilly this morning and definitely glad it wasn't ME going outside and hook up the car in the 33* temps in South Haven. We did manage to get underway shortly after 9:30 heading immediately south along US Hwy 31. And talk about construction! OMG, seems like we would drive 30 miles and hit another patch of single lanes and detours. The worst occured when we reached Indianapolis and the I-465 was having bridge, lane and bypass construction done on it and NOT very good markings to show the way to reach the route heading...

Sep 19, 2007 - Fun in Indianapolis, IN

(Elena Writing) This morning we found a Trader Joe's across the street from where we were camped. This is the first TJ's we came across since leaving CA. It was a nicely designed store; in fact, the aisles were more spacious and displays were done better than the stores in CA. But the prices were higher. We mentioned this to the manager and he said it was due to Indiana's distribution laws. Couple items I normally bought cost about 30%-50% higher than CA's prices (ouch!). Regardless, I was glad we found a Trader Joe's. We visited the...

Jul 23, 2007 - Indiana State Competition

The State Competition actually took place on June 30th. All of the kids did a good job and enjoyed the event. We were very pleased with the praise that Daniel received from the State Director. He said Daniel has the smoothest swing he has ever seen, like he was a natural at shooting skeet.
