Oct 1, 2013 - Indianapolis & Columbus, IN

From Michigan, we stopped in Elkhart for a final adjustment to the RV room slide-out mechanism, and headed South to Indianapolis, where we pulled into Lake Haven Retreat, our home base for the next 6 weeks. The visit with family started out with a bang, as our nephew, Bill and his fiance Jenni, were getting married in Springfield, Illinois. So family members from the Indy area (as well as some who flew in from Arizona and Colorado) all piled into vehicles to drive to Springfield for the ceremony and celebration. Jenni made a beautiful...

Aug 3, 2013 - Meetings Continue

I sure pooped out last night. After dinner with Troy, I came back to the hotel, watched a bit of news and was in bed before 9 PM. The meetings were much better today. Lots of good ideas were presented, so it felt more productive. Our presentation to National on our membership plan went well. They were complimentary. Our goal that was set seems reasonable, though there are Posts that will continue to grumble. Tomorrow, we fly back home. Looking forward to a normal diet and my good bed!

Aug 2, 2013 - Membership Meetings

Whoa... that 3 hour time difference is hard on us folks from the West. We are all yawning and trying to stay awake. The presentations have been a bit sluggish in the sessions Troy and I are in. The speakers get distracted easily. Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

Aug 1, 2013 - Headed to Indianapolis

Early wake-up this morning as I flew out to Indianapolis for a mandated Membership meeting over the next couple of days. My membership chairman, Troy Monholland, is flying with me. Indianapolis is a great city and I always enjoy a visit there (the National Headquarters is there). However, this is the meeting where our membership plan is submitted and our goals for 2014 are set, so there is a bit of apprehension there. Oh well...onward and upward!

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.

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.

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....
