Read and rate Travel Journal Entries for Plymouth, Indiana, United States

Feb 7, 2012 - Getting ready to head to southern Indiana and on to Joplin and then southwest.

I just got a picture of Stubby posted on January's journal page. He was up in a tree...he climbed it! This has been an interesting and busy month. We've been able to spend a little time with everyone and we are getting acquainted with our future new grand daughters, Angel and Cheyenne. Tammy and Travis are planning a wedding this spring. She has a beautiful engagement ring! He is a nice, family oriented man, a hard worker and his daughters are cute and a lot of fun. For Tammy thinking she didn't want a family when she was a teenager, she...

Jan 11, 2012 - Christmas is over but we've determined to keep that Spirit alive in our hearts through 2012!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2012 brings you peace and joy and a closer walk with the Lord! We were fortunate enough to find some 6" thick Styrofoam to skirt the trailer and Ray and Becky gave us an electric heater to replace the one we had burn out. We've been staying pretty warm. I opened this application to make an addition to my journal and found a note from my dear friend, Diane...aka:"Nanners". She told me about her husband, Chuck and the difficulty he has been having with his diabetes. We almost lost our...

Dec 11, 2011 - We've built our nest in Indiana...

Oh my! I don't know where to start. I'm posting some pictures of some of the places and people we have seen in the last month. We have been in the hills of Oklahoma for the last 3 weeks, no signal and no phone but we have had such a nice time! Mary and James Brown invited us to stay on their property while we were in the area, along with Bill and Judy Burns. We had way too many good meals while we were there and I have gained back 15 pounds of the 40 that I have lost! While we were in the area, we intended to see more friends but the...

Sep 4, 2010 - Blueberry Festival

Late yesterday afternoon the weather continued to be windy. Jay decided to put the awning up. Which was good and bad. The vibration from the wind all day loosened up a bolt and we now have an awning that we can't put out until it is bolted back together. Today we went to the LARGEST festival we have ever seen. Advertised as the largest in Indiana it covered probably 1/2 square mile! There were arts and craft booths and many artists there working. There were sporting events. There was entertainment on 3 stages that were so far apart that you...

Jul 31, 2010 - Plymouth, IN

We stayed at Yogi Bear Campground in Plymouth,from July 24th to Aug.1st and had a nice time. The people there were great. There were over 1000 spaces but only 50 rentals. The majority of spaces were purchased & used as a summer vacation spot for the locals. They had everything from small travel trailers to park models. Everyone built a deck. Friday & Sat. is packed but during the week was really quiet. The locals had to go back home to work. The town was nice. It was like anytown USA. Old houses, mostly all very well maintained. Next we're...

Jul 28, 2010 - Elkhart, IN

Yesterday we went to Elkhart, IN to the RV Hall of Fame. They had RV's dating back to 1930. Some were really small but great for the times. We drove around the Amish farm land looking at all the houses, barns, flowers, etc. stopping at roadside stands for corn & brown eggs. They still work on the honor system. The price is on a sign, you take what you want & deposit the money in a locked box. We also went to the town of Nappanee to Amish Acres and had a typical Amish dinner. We ate so much that we couldn't do anything else but come home &...

Jul 26, 2010 - Middlebury, IN

Yesterday we took a down day and just hung out, went to the pool, etc. Today we drove to Middlebury which is about 45 min. away from our campsite. We took a tour through Jayco RV's and Coachman RV. Both were very interesting. Middlebury is an Amish town so of course we found a market with Amish products like different flavor cheeses, jalapeno eggs, etc. Tomorrow we'll be going to Elkhart to visit the RV Hall of Fame and The Tall Man's Outlet. We will be having dinner in the town of Nappanee at an Amish restaurant. to be continued....

Aug 14, 2009 - Pick up RV and leave

Friday, August 14, 2009 Got up and had breakfast and headed over to the Rental Car place to turn in the car. Got there and they only had one person working. The lady at the Rental place let this guy that lived in Middlebury (that rented from Enterprises often and he also lived in Middlebury where the Jayco Factory was located )take us to the Jayco Factory and drop us off. He was a nice man so we said it was ok with us. . He dropped us off about 11:30am. We got all our luggage and set up in the Waiting Lounge at Jayco Factory. Don Brubaker...

Aug 11, 2007 - Factory tours gone bad.....Friday August 10

We are spending the night in the Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground in Plymouth Indiana; a VERY family oriented campground. Shelby and Meagan would love it. I think about them every time I see a swing, Lake Michigan, volleyball nets, etc. I really miss them. We are en route towards home, but Chuck says I am like a horse (not sure if I like the "horse" metaphor) headed for the barn when we start heading towards home, I am going to TRY to remain calm and relaxed; two adjectives that NEVER describe me. We are going to end up in Louisville, KY on...

Aug 20, 2006 - Elkhart, Indiana

***** No Photos**** Sunday, August 20, my birthday, we drove to Elkhart, Indiana. We arrived there mid-afternoon at the Elkhart Campgrounds, a very large, nice, well-kept campgrounds and only $26 a night. When we drove in, Carol recognized one of the rigs there as being one of the instructors we had at the RV Life on Wheels conference we went to in Bowling Green, Kentucky in May. It was a very distinctive, home made conversion of an old bus. That is why she knew the rig. He and his wife give classes, write books and publish a newspaper on...

Jun 9, 2006 - We're Off to See the Wizard...

After leaving Elkhart about noon on Friday, we dove through the last of Indiana and into Illinois. Somewhere along the way, we found the Yellow Brick Road/Wizard of Oz Museum. What a HOOT! Our tour guide, Auntie Em, took us into one little room that was packed full of Wizard of Oz stuff. It was delightful as was their store. After our tour, we snapped some pictures with cut out figures on the front lawn. I believe the photo of Art holding my shopping bag and standing with the munchkins is probably the funniest picture I've ever seen of my...

Aug 27, 2005 - Day 22 - The home stretch

Day 22 Saturday, Aug 27 Not much to tell today. My weather strategy is working well. Clear skies again and high 80's. I only used the Interstate for 60 miles going into Peoria. I left Chillicothe on U.S. 65 North then got on U.S. 34 East at Lucas, Iowa and took that all the way into Illinois where I picked up Interstate 74 into Peoria. I then got on U.S. 24 and took that into Indiana to U.S. 31 toward South Bend. I got off in Rochester and am spending the night about 50 miles south of South Bend. There was a reason for the details in the...
