Jun 26, 2012 - Indianapolis, IN

On June 1st,we left Louisville for the short (130 mile) trip to Lake Haven Retreat in Greenwood, IN. This will be our base for the next couple of months - the park is about mid-way between Dave's and Therese's families. We're looking forward to catching up with all. We settled into a comfortable and fun time enjoying our families. Cookouts at "our place", several rounds of golf, fishing in the lake at the park, helping Dave's Mom celebrate her 86th birthday and Therese getting extended "girl time" with her sister Marge at her home in nearby...

Jun 23, 2012 - Monument Circle at the Capital - Indianapolis, IN 2012

We arrived in town 15 minutes too late. On Saturdays, this capital closes at 2pm. We had crossed from the Central to the Eastern time zone and did not realize it. But, it was not all a loss. Just down form the capital is Monument Circle with a fabulous structure and statuary, The Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Built in 1901, the structure is 284 ft tall. It has 331 steps. We took the elevator up and took the stairs down. There also happened to be car show in the circle. We had a nice greek lunch at a restaurant just down the street from the...

Jun 5, 2012 - Tuesday 5th June

Our last flat white for a while….we left the hotel after packing up and having breakfast, and had a final flat white at Z Sport café. We headed south through Milwaukee and called into Chicago to collect a couple of parts we’d ordered from a bike shop there. Chicago is a HUGE place, we couldn’t wait to leave. Our new GPS took us off the interstate for a while…we can’t understand why, as it wouldn’t have been quicker/faster/easier than staying on the interstate. However we followed the instructions and ended up on I-65 heading towards...

Jun 3, 2012 - On to Indy!

Unexpected family reunion in Indy!! Serendipitous events led to a confluence of driving patterns... (didn't think I knew that many long words, did you?? ;>)... so that our stop in Indy coincided with Katie & Mary's trip to Nashville!!! What a great time we had... Lots (!) of great food and hugs and getting to meet Adam's Kara who is a super addition to our family... Mom Mary is driving to Nashville with Dr. Katie so she can take up her residency at the University Hospital there. Lots of excitement and suspense in both cousin's family with...

May 27, 2012 - Incensed in Indianapolis

When I wrote last we were leaving Ohio and making our way to South Dakota so we could get our driver’s licenses renewed. We left on Tuesday, May 15 and planned to stop overnight at Camping World in Indianapolis so we could get our front landing gear (leg that holds the rig up) repaired. When we called to make the appointment they told us they couldn’t order the part until they took a look at it, the part would be overnighted, and we could be on our way the next day. But when we arrived, they said it would be two days to get the part, so we...

Apr 24, 2012 - Gentlemen, Start your Engines

While we were in Indianapolis, we decided to stop and take a tour of the raceway and Museum of Racing History. We really learned a lot and enjoyed the visit. My favorite part was being able to make a lap around the track in a tour bus. It was awesome and I will watch the race now with more of an appreciation for what the drivers see. Did you know there was a golf course separated by the racetrack? I guess they use to have a PGA tour stop there and most recently the Senior Tour held the Brickyard Tournament there. Another thing we learned...

Nov 25, 2011 - Kid Rock Rocked My World

I went to see the uber-popular Kid Rock over the summer at Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana, and let me tell, his performance blew me away. I sat in the lawn so I wasn't up-close to all the stage theatrics, but even from my vantage point it was clear to see the extravagance -- multiple stripper polls on a tiered stage, huge bull horns coming out of the drummer's kit, pyrotechnics galore ... it was awesome. His set list ranged from classic rock/rap hits like Bawitdaba, to modern mellow songs like Born Free. He also...

Nov 20, 2011 - Indianapolis, IN - Nov 19-20

November 19, 2011 Thanks to a bit of a screw up by me, we had to get up this morning at 5.30am. I had arranged to meet one of the guys I know from the Palace website at a college football game this afternoon and I hadn’t realized two things – 1) how far away it was from Springfield; and 2) the fact that Indiana is in the Eastern time zone and Illinois is in the Central time zone meaning we had an hour less than planned to get there! As we checked out the guy at the hotel was way too cheery for this early and we just mumbled on our way out...

Sep 13, 2011 - and the journey begins

The day is finally here! I'm full of a million emotions: nervous, excited, sad, excited,thrilled, excited, nervous, excited. That's when I remembered I had a blog...what a great place to share this excitement with others! I figured each day (or maybe every other day) I'd write a "Thought of the Day." So here's number one:I was sitting outside of security, enjoying a buttery croissant and a fruit parfait...doing what I do best: people watching. The airport is full of all kinds of people. Some traveling for business. Some headed to somewhere...

Sep 3, 2011 - Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge

It was 74 and humid in New Albany, IN at 6am when we dropped our loaded trailer and grabbed an empty one. Sure have a difficult time with the humidity. Be glad when fall gets here. Our next load picks up in at 6pm in Indianapolis, IN. It delivers in Carson, California on Labor Day. Being only 100 miles away, so we had lots of free time. So....lets grab my trusty road atlas...any state/national parks or wildlife refuges in the area? Yes! Right off the interstate was Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge. Looking it up on-line with my netbook...

Aug 30, 2011 - August 29 & 30 - 24th Stop

Only half the roads on the way here were bad. We sure miss the Florida and Tennessee roads. My daughter, Lauren and grandson Ryan, came over for dinner Monday night. She moved here after her divorce was filed. We had a final cheese and crackers event with Ken and Wanda because they will leave Tuesday morning to get back to TN a couple days earlier than we will.
