Jun 9, 2013 - Indianapolis

My time in Indianapolis, the capital of Indiana, was a bit boring, but the weather was great: 24 - 30 degrees and sun the whole day. It`s like a big city with big houses and little gardens. Beautiful! But it was interesting to watch a game of the Indianapolis Colts, the football team of Indianapolis, or watch a race on the famous motor speedway. Those things you have to do.

Jun 7, 2013 - Indianapolis, In

Indianapolis,In. where we toured the Lucas Oil (Colts) stadium; the Indianapolis Art Museum, the Lily house and grounds. We went to see an Indians base ball game at Victory Stadium. While in Indianapolis I completed a small project of covering our “office supplies” and reorganizing books. We camped next to a couple from Live Oak! We found an Office Depot to get copies of the Trout Lake forms for us to complete and a copy of photos to send to Danny's Mom.

Jun 6, 2013 - Indianapolis,Indiana

Hello diary! Indianapolis is called "Circle City" too, because in the middle of the city is a sight. It is called "Monument Circle". The monument commemorates the fallen soldiers of the American Civil War and the Mexican-American War. It was really cool the details on the monument. Later we went to "The Children's Museum of Indianapolis". It was really funny and we could try out a lot of things. For example we could open an casket or something like that. It makes real fun, but it was very full inside. We was there inside more than 2 hours....

May 5, 2013 - Day 7: Toward Indianapolis, IN

Rain and more rain! We pulled out of Grandma's RV Park about 10am, heading toward Indianapolis. No reason to go there except that it's on the way to Chicago. Our first stop was at Camping World. Then there was a WalMart nearby and it was a nice area - Greenwood, Indiana, to be exact - so that's where we parked. I needed to do some grocery shopping and it was a good place to walk around out of the rain. We walked the perimeter after the grocery shopping was done. When we camp at WalMart, I usually buy a rotesserie chicken for supper, and...

Apr 15, 2013 - Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Channeling our inner Jim Nabors, we’re “Back Home in Indiana” staying at the state fair grounds in Indianapolis; an impressive conglomerate of permanent buildings including an enormous indoor arena and one-mile outdoor trotting track surrounded by paddocks, each named in honor of a famous Indiana resident prominent in the history of harness racing. Of course, two of the bigger buildings were 4H and the Future Farmers of America. Today, we visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and took a 90 minute track tour. The track is 2 ½ miles around...

Apr 14, 2013 - On the Road Again!

We left yesterday morning and traveled further than we planned…good news. And…bad. The good news was that we traveled 405 miles instead of the 320 we planned. The bad news was that we (shorthand for I) had to figure out a new place to stay. Luckily, along I-70, there are plenty of Wal-marts, our favorite first night spot so we wound up in Cambridge, Ohio perched on a hill. Cooked the traditional meal; shrimp cocktail, a cocktail (Bloody Mary), filet mignon, baked potato and fresh green beans. Yum! This morning, we left and drove to...

Jan 2, 2013 - Day 1 of our trip to get someplace warm ...

Down the road on day 1 of our trip to get away from the cold and the snow for a while. We ran out of snow in the Chicago area (we drove down through the loop area to see all those buildings that hold so much hay) ... then we ran back into snow about a hour north of Indianapolis ... and it was cold there, too. OK ... so far, not so good to get away from the snow and cold. We spent the night with my favorite family member living in Indiana ... that would be nephew Paul and his family ... Ashley, Owen, Lucy, and Dottie. They are such a cool...

Sep 30, 2012 - Back Home (Again!) in Indiana

We returned to Indianapolis (it is beginning to feel like the movie "Groundhog Day") for a last stint here with family before resuming our journey East and South. The big event was a (somewhat) impromptu reunion of Therese's family at sister Marge's home in Columbus. All four of the Wontorek sibs and their respective mates, along with our niece and her husband from Tucson and nephew from Springfield, IL spent a week eating (constantly), drinking (frequently), golfing (daily), LAUGHING (a lot), and sharing one bathroom (!!). Dave...
