Sunday May 29, 2011-Movimg Day-KOA of Terre Haute to Elkhart Campground

We enjoyed last night here in the KOA. It was like many years ago when we first started camping with the sights and sounds of children running around, having adventures that will last a lifetime, the smell of campfires and food cooking outside. Stella and I don't camp out any more, this is now our home; we are RV'ers, not campers. We miss the old times but life moves on and we wouldn't change a thing. Well, maybe a few things, but in general, our lifestyle is great!

We got up this morning and went to eat breakfast in the cafe here at the park. We had good breakfasts before we got on the road and didn't have to fix anything or clean up. We made good time and left the park about 9:20, or right on time. We made good time on the road until we got to Indianapolis where we missed the turnoff to the loop because the regular exit was closed due to road construction. The GPS was at fault because he told us to go to the old exit which was now closed but then he redeemed himself by taking through downtown Indy, and by the way, right beside the Lucas Oil stadium where the Colts play. It was kind of scary, driving through old residential sections of Indianapolis with low hanging branches and a good bit of traffic due to the Indy 500 being run today, but we made it without problem. We came out exactly where we wanted to be, on US 31, the road we needed to be on. We made it into Elkhart a little after 2 in the afternoon. We got set up at the Elkhart Campground in a new section that was being put in last year when we were here. It looks as if we are the first guest in this site.

Lets not forget that it's Memorial Day weekend. I want to thank all the veterans, past and present and may God Bless you for your service.

So long
