Michiana RV was nearby on the north side of Elkhart. In an earlier phone call they said, "bring it on b y." They quickly confirmed that the batteries needed to be replaced. That done, along with a new slideout switch and we were on our way, relieved of a few hundred dollars of our sacred traveling funds.
We are parked at the Elkhart campground. The "techie" came by and replaced the slideout switch a second time because the slide was only half extended and wouldn't move. "These are the times that try senior saints souls."
After a brief nap and it was off to see the RV/MH museum a few miles away. These folks have gone way out of their way to build a first class facility with plenty of room for future expansion. We were impressed.
We hooked up with Fred and Barb Paulus in Goshen for supper. They are a part of the Ohio camping club and absolutely delightful folks. We all enjoyed top-notch barbecue together followed by a little ice cream. Talked so long we missed most of the "Dancing with the stars"episode. Tragedy!!!
Tomorrow we intend to roll through downtown Chicago and on up to Elkhorn, Wisconsin to spend an evening with Gary and Harriette, friends we met at Pioneer Village in Ft. Myers, FL.
This is our first shot at doing anything like a blog. Be patient with us. Don't know exactly how often we will update this. Will just have to see how it goes.
Just one more thing. It was wonderful to see the folks at Greensburg Church yesterday. You're the best. The pie was good too, Wilma.
More later...love to all,
Winston and Lynda
