May 19, 2013 - First Day on the Job
We took 4 days and drove the distance from Texas to Ohio stopping off at our new workamping site in Terre Haute Indiana. The park looked really nice, exactly as it showed in the pictures on the website. We got a free campsite the night we stopped in to take a look around as well as a free breakfast at their restaurant the morning after. Gary was a little down about the circumstances at the park because their pool was still leaf laden and a little stinky from the winter, and things didn't quite seem kosher in his mind. I told him to have an...Jump to full entry
Oct 9, 2012 - First Leg of our Journey. Terre Haute Indiana
The sad part of starting this trip was we had to leave our German Shepherd Dog (GSD) Belle behind. Belle has a anal problem that would be very difficult to treat on the road. Our vet and her staff are taking care of Belle while we are gone. I will keep you updated as we get our reports. The medicine, if it will work, takes about 2 weeks. They are not a lot of options for treating Belle. Bandit is doing great especially with all the changes in his life. Bandit was Nancy's GSD. The weather was perfect for traveling. Sun and Blue Skies. The...Jump to full entry
May 13, 2012 - Arriver Goshen, Indiana (Amish Country)
Nous avons fait une journee tranquille sur la route aujourd'hui. En premier, nous avons pris la vieille route historique 40 de Tere Haute a Indianapolis. Bellle voie double qui longes les villes et villages. Par la suite la 31 Nord pour se rendre a Goshen. Belle journee encore, dans les 25 Celcius. Pas de pluie encore, meme si il en annoncait depuis avant-hier. A+Jump to full entry
Apr 21, 2012 - To Terre Haute, IN
It rained last night and we lost power in the RV. John did not have a good night’s sleep. We have no schedule so he sleeps in. At 12:00, we say our good-bys again and head west. We take the bypass around Cincinnati. We cross the Ohio River and enter Kentucky for a while. We cross the Ohio River and enter Indiana. We follow Routes 50, 7 and 46 to cross Indiana. This may be the first route across the state that I would follow again. It is a very nice drive! We stop in Bloomington, the home of Indiana University. We find it an easy town to...Jump to full entry
Oct 17, 2011 - What a day!!
This has been an interesting day. Got up this morning and started packing up. Bob drove the rental back to Sturgis and Phyl followed about 10 minutes later. She drove up to Enterprise and expected Bob to be outside ready to go, WRONG! There was only one person working the desk and he was frantically attempting to help another. Finally it was the Avellas turn and it took almost 30 minutes to get checked out (remember the accident?) because it seems that this was the first accident report the Enterprise person had to fill out (weren't we...Jump to full entry
Sep 25, 2011 - Enjoyed our stay in Indiana
Well we have enjoyed our down time in Indiana. I caught a rainbow outside our front window the other day. It had rained in the morning but thankfully the afternoon was bright and sunny. However the weather is chilly and the trees are turning color - time to head south. We are leaving tomorrow, over-nighting down at Central City, KY, next night at Union City, TN, then on to Arkansas. Larry has found a place in AR where you can go in the old crystal mines and gather your own crystals. So we will be doing that before we head for Crater of...Jump to full entry
Sep 11, 2011 - Orange Cones and Barrels
We left Youngstown early. After watching a little of the 9/11 Remembrance, we headed out for Indiana. The drive went well, until we got about 30 miles from Indianapolis, where a never ending series of orange cones and highway barrels first appeared. We drove and drove and drove and drove under ROAD WORK conditions, single file, with a rough and narrow lane. Dodging potholes and smashed guard rails, we crept towards Indianapolis where we encountered incredible orange-cone gridlock. people were honking, shaking their fists, trying to change...Jump to full entry
Sep 11, 2010 - Terre Haute, IN
From Terre Haute KOA Kampground – Terre Haute, IN Yesterday under gray skies with a light mist falling we crossed the state of Illinois and found our next stop just 11 miles after crossing into Indiana. We elected to stay 2 nights here at the Terre Haute KOA and use today as a wash day and also for the chance to sleep in this morning…..glad to say we got both accomplished. This park is older and the sites are rather short and have gravel pads. You are also very close to your neighbor. Lots of trees, but for once the temps were in the 60’s...Jump to full entry
Jul 1, 2010 - Tire, & a Court House Found
Thanks to the GPS and a lot of patience, we found a replacement tire to put on as a spare. Rim is a little bent, but the technician reshaped it as best he could and told me it'll work great as a spare. Uh, but we may want to replace the rim once we get home.
So, looks like a new rim is in our future. :-)
While I worked on getting the new tire, Karen, Ariane and Ryan went on a little excursion. They found the Court House in Terre Haute, Indiana. They didn't go inside but looked and the architecture and fountains around the structure....
Jul 5, 2009 - Driving!
Early in the morning Steve got several more hours in driving before we reached downtown St. Louis to see the arch. There was were roads closed and just no where to park, so we looked at it from various angles and headed out. We stopped for brunch at a great place in Pocahontas, IL. Huge servings for breakfast and they serve it all day. Definitely a place to put on your list of places to stop if you're on 70. I've never been a grits person, but they had fabulous ones. We got four breakfast plates and shared and still took to go containers!...Jump to full entry
May 2, 2009 - Visiting friends
Today we traveled to Hilliard, Ohio to visit with Jan Domingus and her family. We enjoyed the break from driving and visiting with Jan, Jeff, Brenda, Olin and Samuel. What a wonderful family. We traveled another 200 miles to Terre Haute, Indiana for the night. We are very close to the central time zone so we had daylight much longer today.Jump to full entry
Apr 19, 2009 - Terre Haute KOA, Indiana
Here we are safely in Terre Haute, Indiana. We're tired again (is that what's known as retired?) Jay, how do you tighten the fan belt on this Ford? I've looked casually and I cannot find a adjustable slide anywhere. That's enough for now we'll be hitting the road again tomorrow so will rest up. I don't know how you do it Guy Florida to Quebec straight through! I'm too old for that. Love Tom & Rita.......... and HeyU...Who's drooling over a Robin outside the window.Jump to full entry
