Friday September 9, 2011-Moving day-Elkhart Campground to Hershey Conewago Campground

We woke this morning to rain again, so we put off getting started to leave for awhile. Stella had set the alarm for 6 AM but we both snuggled back in where it was warm and dry. I got up a little before 7 and started the coffee pot brewing, and we were both up about 7:30. We finally got started about 8:30 after the rain stopped. We didn't break any records in getting ready to pull out and left a couple of minutes after 10, so it really wasn't all that bad. I had put on my sweat pants, thinking it was going to be cool outside, but soon learned that it was warm and had broken out into a good sweat. Sweating in sweat pants? Who'd 'a thought it?

We jumped up on the Indiana toll road and made good time into Ohio. We stopped at the first Service Area (rest stop with extras) because we knew that some of the stops had RV hookups and we had decided to stay in one tonight. We learned where we needed to exit for the last stop with hookups-near the Pennsylvania border-and made our plans. I thought the cost was $10 per night for electricity and water, but when we got there, we learned that it was actually $20 and all of the "sites" are back in's that wouldn't take our trailer-much too short! Stella called ahead to the Ridge Ranch RV Park and made us some reservations. It was only about 15 miles to the park, so were soon there.This park is not a favorite of ours but it will do for one night.

Here we are, all tucked into our site. Maybe I should have said shoehorned into our site!

This tree made Stella say bad words to me, but I got us in and didn't bend or scrape anything! Just barely made it in, but we're there.

They have a nice little playground for the kiddies. Too bad we don't have any with us.

There is a very nice lake that they allow fishing in. Too bad Cameron isn't with us.

They rent boats, kayaks and something called an Aqua Bike.

It's kind of a good feeling to be back on the road. We're hopeful that everything works out in Hershey PA, our destination for this trip. There has been a lot of flooding but our park is high and dry as of this morning. We'll find out tomorrow! Stay tuned.

So long.
