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.

Aug 11, 2011 - Indianapolis, IN

We are definitely heading home, or at least moving west, we will be in Arizona by the end of the month. We did take the time to stop and tour "Indianapolis Motor Speedway" Wow what a great place to visit!! One of the highlights of our tour was a lap around the 2-1/2 mile track. We averaged the amazing speed of two hundred miles per hour, (pause) slower than the Indy cars. Oh well! we did get to visit the Press center, stand on the finish line, drive through Gasoline Alley, and listen to a very knowledgeable tour guide! Our visit also...

Aug 5, 2011 - Omi's

Monday, August 8, 2011 Wow. When I typed the date all I could think was this is the last week of my 20's. Insane. I'm in Indy. I came here for Josh and Jade's cousin Paige's bridal shower. It was beautiful and I had a wonderful time. We went over to Sandy's that night and hung out with Paige and Amanda. We all painted our toenails (I painted Omi's bright hot pink. She said it was the first time she's ever had her toes painted.). We then ate pizza and played the German version of "Sorry". It was hilarious. Omi get so into it and gets so...

Jun 25, 2011 - Nashville, TN to Indianapolis, IN 330 Miles

We traveled through more beautiful terrain; especially green rolling hills in KY. As we crossed the Ohio River into IN it was more industrial for a while. Then we saw beautiful, flat, green farm country until we neared Indianapolis. Both TN and IN have had lots of rain lately. I guess they are getting our share too. Indianapolis is huge and bustling! We came through at 4p; rush hour in full swing. My nerves were shot by the time we found our campground in Cicero, IN. I started supper while Charlie set up. He noticed a worn spot on a tire....

Jun 21, 2011 - Indianapolis

It had to happen. We bought lots and lots of groceries and then the refrigerator quit working right. It was cool, but not cold enough, and the freezer wasn’t freezing. Fortunately, we were only 100 miles from Red Bay, so we headed back to Tiffin on the 13th. They got us in immediately, found a cold refrigerator where we could put our food and then had to decide what to do. They did say we were way past due for a new one. With a new refrigerator installed, we went back to Hohenwald, Tennessee, on the 16th and departed on the 20th. We had...

May 29, 2011 - Day 2 - Topeka to Indy

Drove from Topeka to Indianapolis today - 500+ miles. The wake up call came at 5:30 am - it was so weird because we fell back to sleep and the guy at the desk called again at 5:45 am and said, "This is your reminder wake-up call." What??? How did he know we didn't get up. I checked behind the pictures to make sure Norman Bates wasn't peeking in the room. The Mississippi and Missouri Rivers are really flooded. There were several fields under a foot of water. We found a McStop along the MO interstate - I guess when you are in a hurry...
