Monday June 22, 2015-Moving Day-Elkhart County Fairgrounds to Double J Campground, Chatham Illinois

We were up and had our coffee early, to get an early start to getting packed up to leave this morning. Things went very well and we were ready to leave around 9. Of course, I spent some time saying goodbye to folks that pulled out before us, but we still got done on time. 

We did have one little mishap when closing the slides. The factory techs had replaced a "flex guard", which is a flexible guard or guide that contains wires and hoses to prevent damage to them when the slide opens and closes. They apparently installed it wrong because it got caught between the trailer wall and the slide out, bending the edge of the slide. I think I can fix it when we get to our next stop.

We made good time with only one "comfort" stop and a lunch stop at a Pilot station near the border of Indiana and Illinois. We pulled into the Double J Campground about 3:30 and we were soon set up and relaxing. 

Marti fixed a great supper for us of chicken and spaghetti. The weather cooperated and we sat outside until the mosquitoes came out. We are all glad to be back on Central time. I think it bothered all of us by being light outside until almost 10. 

We were all ready to travel, and looking forward to the sights here and during the rest of the trip. 

So long.
