Monday August 15, 2011-Elkhart County Fairgrounds

It is still delightfully cool in the morning here in Goshen IN but the daytime temps only get into the mid 80's. I woke early, as usual, and had to cover with one of the blankets to keep warm in the living room.

We have a full day planned for today. First of all, I have to take my I-Phone to the AT&T store to see about a repair or replacement. Then we want to come back here to hang around the registration booth to invite people to go to a factory tour at Heartland. We got the phone taken care of first, but it wasn't a happy ending to it. The young man at the store took one look at what was happening with the phone and immediately sent us to an Apple store in Wakarusa. After a short discussion with him over the insurance we had bought with this phone, we got the info on the store's location and left. We went by the Heartland factory but our contact person was out of the office. We did pick up some brochures and came on back to Goshen. We returned to the park and learned that there was space for us near the golf registration, so I sat there with some brochures and my pad and ended up signing about 8 couples up. Not too bad for a low-traffic spot with no advertising. I talked to several other people that may come back and sign up. Time will tell...

We came back and sat outside for a couple of hours before the skeeters ran us back inside. The weather is very nice and we have a nice shady spot. I took a short walk around the park and stopped to talk to the couple that is in the site we were in at the Heartland rally. They are from Michigan and are having a min-reunion at the rally with one of his high school friends. I told him to take good care of our site because we'll be back there in a couple of years.

So long.
