We were up and at the factory just after 8 and dropped the trailer off for the replacement of our underbelly covering. I figured that this would be a very quick job, but there were other trailers there having work done and another had beaten us down to drop theirs off, so we just got in line to have our work done.
While dropping the trailer off, I got a call from Jim B. who invited to eat lunch with him, which we gladly accepted. We did some shopping at Wal Mart, went by to visit with Rob Reid, owner of Great Lakes RV and tried to visit another friend at the Heartland factory, Jim F. but he was in a meeting so we missed seeing him. We just piddled around Elkhart until time to meet Jim at Culver's. When he arrived, we all decided to have a new burger that they are offering, a Pepper Grinder Pub Burger, which was very tasty. We had a nice visit with Jim and soon went back to the factory to pick up the trailer. In less than 30 minutes we were at the Shipshewana Campground, getting set up.
We saw a lot of our friends after arriving and learned that they have a hot dog potluck dinner planned for tonight. Dan and Karen furnished the dogs and some of the sides, and as usual, the potluck was delicious. We visited with some new folks at their first rally and then went outside to sit by a nice campfire, visiting and chatting with our friends.
I turned in early because I was tired from driving for the past several days but Stella stayed out until 10:30 or so, but she had to tell me when she came in because I was conked out!
We're glad to be here and in rally mode. It should be a lot of fun.
