Where I stayed
Middlebury KOA

Today we drove 412 miles but stopped a few times. As we headed east the roads got progressively worse and by Chicago, not good at all. Some of the worst in western Indiana. It's another hot one, in the high 90's. we stop for fuel at a Pilot and when I opened the fuel door, not gas cap. Now who might have let it at the last stop, ME, ME, ME. Was mad at myself. I guess it doesn't matter much and no alarms, not buzzers, bells or whistles. Will look for one in the next few days.

Riding down the road, we both reached to raise the sun visors and nothing. No up, no down. Later I found the fuse blew and got a replacement and we're back in business. For awhile though I had to look under it and was a bit difficult.

We crossed the Mississippi today for the second time. One going and now one coming back. Our stop for tongiht is in Middlebury, IN near Elkhart. This KOA is nice and we have a shady spot. Tomorrow we are going to go to Shipshewana in the morning. Tomorrow starts the annual Quilt Festivel. Gail would die to be here I'm sure. After lunch we plan to stop at the Indiana Monaco plant in Wakarusa, IN just south of here. Our 2009 Holiday Rambler was made here and we are taking a plant tour at 2:00pm. Then we plan to head to GR and arrive after dinner. Home again Home.

Just across from us is a private rig that Larry and Connie would love to see. The coach has four slides, but the most interesting part is the hydraulic lift for the Tri-Cycle. Then the tow bar hocked to it. Just an awesome unit.

Dear Santa - I have been a really great man this year. I often ask Ritchie silly questions and sometimes the same one twice. This year for Christmas I would like a new gas cap. Sometimes I think Ritchie should remember these things on my behalf
