We have been in this area of Elkhart/Goshen, Indiana more than any other place, other than when we have planned to hunker down an spend the winter.  There is no better place for RVers to get repaired or renovated as there is everything here.  We have made trips to the salvage places, Montana factory, to get some needed pieces for Damnearahouse, and Chucks favorite place, Rise-N-Roll.  DSCF0882

They have a saying there, “Keep your eye on the donut, not on the hole”. 


We spent the better part of the last week at a Passport campground in the town of Howe, great price, even though the PA (12.50) was good only 2 days.  After that it went to 14.00 for Escapees.  Water and electric only, but very quiet, country quiet, there is a difference. They did have a heated pool, and I had good Verizon.  And we made it without dumping, but it was close.


Of course we had to take in the famous Shipshewana market.  Love it, open only Tuesday and Wednesdays.  Found a few things that jumped in my shopping bag, and decided that we needed to send a “hey, see what we found for ya” box to our kids. We do that every so often, rather than saving things for special occasions.  Storage room is precious in these tin boxes too. We have been so lucky with the weather, other than some rain now and then it has been wonderful.  Looks like the rest of the week will be more of the same.

We are in Goshen now, at the fairgrounds, waiting for the FROG (Forest River Owners Group) rally to start.  There is no quiet here, the train tracks are with in a stones throw, and you can hear those whistles starting to blow a mile away.  Only bothered me the first night, last two nights not so much.  After looking at the program, think it might should be called the FOOD rally.  Full breakfast every day, strawberry shortcake for a few hours during the day, and full dinners every night, but one.  Will have to say though that night, there is a pot luck.  A whole week when I don’t have to think of what, when or where we are eating.  That is great!  They are expecting 400 rigs, so that is quite a lot.  Had thought there would be more little ones, but they are all makes, but they are now under the Forest River umbrella.  Have officially named the the Little One, he will now be the Tadpole. 


I have no idea what this little buggy is for, had not seen anything like this, but did see one pulling a boat the other day.  Love this area.
