May 24, 2017 - Granger IN

Well, we found someplace to live for the night – North Utica, Illinois – after a just over 4 hour drive from Fremont, Wisconsin...with just about half of that in a cold, steady rain. And, after hours and hours online and the phone, my in-house travel coordinator has now booked us places to live all the way up through June 19th...which is highly unusual for us. After tonight’s stop, we are on our way to near Elkhart, Indiana to tour 2 other motorhome manufacturers, just to compare them to Tiffin’s construction methods. And no, we are not in...

Aug 12, 2012 - I confess we love RV'ing

Hard to pick the highlight for yesterday. The weather was beautiful with highs in the mid 70's as we headed further west. Our first stop was in Elkhart IN and the RV/Mobile Home Hall of Fame. They had RV's displayed from the early 30's through the '70's in such a neat way. Only the pictures can do this place justice and it was FANTASTIC for us 4 RV lovers. After a quick lunch we headed to Shipshewana IN which has a very large Amish population. We saw a musical play called The Confession a story about an Amish girl who found out she was...

Aug 7, 2010 - Day 148 - Notre Dame and College Football Hall of Fame

Wow! Today was magic and I swear I'm getting special treatment in this life. I'm going to say my thanks tonight for sure. The public is allowed to walk down the tunnel to the edge of the field at Notre Dame on Fridays before game day, then turn around and walk back up to real life again. Period. Of course, if you have one of the sold-out tickets, you can sit in the grandstand and watch the games on this sacred ground. Today, I walked on the football field at Notre Dame. I happened upon a second wedding group who were going to have their...

Aug 6, 2010 - Day 147 - a travel day to Granger!

Yeah, I'm really in Granger...but it is simply close to my real destination...South Bend, Indiana and Notre Dame! I want to feel the spirits of the Gipper, the four horsemen and Knute Rockne. Today was simply a travel day and I didn't get anything else accomplished...other than warn my email addresses about the scam I got. Well...I might as well post it here too in case one of you gets an email from me asking for a loan! I got what looked like a legitimate email today from someone I've known for many years. The email "from address" was her...

Sep 30, 2009 - South Bend, IN

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 Amish Country and Jayco RV Factory Tour Today’s rainy, cold and generally gloomy day made taking photos challenging. We relied on a Heritage Trail audio CD to direct our drive through Amish country. Starting at Elkhart’s Visitor’s Center and had trouble right away as we couldn’t find the pause button (the CD periodically said to pause the audio commentary until we came to a certain place). I consulted the truck’s manual (no mention of a pause function) and after several miles, Scott found the pause function and...

Sep 28, 2009 - South Bend, IN

Sunday, September 27 – New Buffalo, Michigan, Sue, Loretta & Eddie Sunday morning we drove to the village of New Buffalo on the Lake Michigan’s shore. We parked the truck on the village’s main street and walked a short distance to the sand and surf. The pale blue sky met the dark blue immense of Lake Michigan all along the horizon. While I scanned the sand for shells, Scott pondered the advantages of keeping a boat in fresh water. We met a man who swept the boardwalk and acted as an informal beach host. We ate at a local restaurant...

Sep 26, 2009 - South Bend, IN

Friday, September 25, 2009 we drove through the corn and soybean fields of Illinois into Indiana today, longest drive of the trip so far……. Saturday, September 26, 2009 Cousin Mark was our guide today through South Bend and the surrounding areas. The Notre Dame football team was away so we had the campus almost to ourselves. It was a beautiful sun filled day and the sparkling golden dome of the main building competed with the yellows and gold’s of the trees below. We drove past a long shuttered building with a Studebaker sign in the window...

Oct 11, 2008 - Granger, Indiana

Today was a short travel day, only around 100 miles. The skies were clear and sunny once again. We headed north from Lafayette on Highway 25 towards South Bend, Indiana. Once again, the road wound through beautiful countryside, with homes on large pieces of grass covered land surrounding them. The trees were spectacular in the morning sun. The pictures I try to take of them just don't do the colors justice. -- It has been over a week since we last grocery shopped so we are running out of food. So, by the time we headed out, John had...

Aug 21, 2008 - Tolls, Trolls And Travels

The drive from Wisconsin to Indiana was a nightmare for two Californians. In order to travel through northern Illinois and Indiana, toll roads are the main routes. It confuses me how an interstate highway (I-80/90 to be exact) can be a toll road. But, nothing is more baffling than how fees are determined or where additional toll booths are going to appear on the highway. I thought that once you paid the toll, you could travel the length of the highway – at least until it passed into another state. Wrong…it seems that toll booths appear all...
