Tuesday June 9, 2015-Moving Day-Terre Haute KOA to Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen IN

At last, the final leg of our journey! 

This KOA park offers a cafe for breakfast that we have eaten at in the past. It's a great way to get a nourishing meal before hitting the road, and it wasn't too expensive but as we learned, prices change... Only a few of our group actually showed up to eat, but it didn't take too long for us to eat and be ready to travel.

We learned from the news that there was a fatality accident that had closed the highway that we intended to travel on, so the I-phones came out and a new travel plan was laid out. Mike, Andy and Paul decided to pull out before we and Tom were quite ready to go (one of Tom's neighbors wanted to tour his new Landmark 365) but we were soon on our way. Our new route proved to be a slow one but it was much better than sitting on the freeway while the accident was being investigated. 

We made it through all the little towns that surround Indianapolis and made it to the highway leading to Goshen. It was especially slow because all of the truckers that normally been on the highway were traveling the same route that we are. It was quite tight driving with all the extra traffic!

So, here we were, driving along in the beautiful Indiana Amish countryside when we spied two trailers ahead of us. It didn't take long before we realized that it was Mike and Paul. They had gotten separated from Andy and continued on their way. 

Now that we are hooked up again with our traveling friends, we continued on into the fairgrounds and got registered for the rally and were soon on our way to our sites. It's good to finally be here!

We all went inside after getting set up but slowly we came back outside and before you know it, a party had broken out! Many, many of our friends came by to say hello and sit and visit. It's great to see so many friends again. the party finally dwindled down and we came inside again about 11. I was so tired that I didn't remember drying off after I took a shower. Tired but happy to be here...

So long.
