I want to begin with yesterday. We took our new friends Chuck and Gayle over to Wakarusa IN and the Wakarusa Dime Store. First, the name Wakarusa. The actual source of the name is unknown. It was first traditionally believed to be from a Native American tribe, with its meaning "knee deep in mud". A more recent source claims a settler named it after a location in Kansas. At any rate, it's a beautiful little town with huge, beautiful trees hanging over the streets.
We had a good time shopping the nostalgic little Dime Store, trying to keep ourselves from buying one of each item in the store. Many brought back memories of our childhood but some were newer items that looked delicious.
We ended up on a scenic drive through Amish country, ending up in Goshen, where Chuck wanted to take a look at the Elkhart County 4H Fairgrounds for future reference for a rally. Since we have been there several times, we were glad to show them around.
This was a good way to end out time in Elkhart on a positive note. The RVillage rally had left us with a bitter taste.
We are leaving Monday for a 4 night-stop trip to Creede Colorado. Please stay tuned.
