Got up early. Yes those that guessed it was a new iPad were correct.
It was easy to set up and I left it hooked to the computer to sync over 10,000 pictures. Bonnie slept in and then got up and headed to the Super Wal-mart to restock on the food for the trip home. I got out the ladder and cleaned the windshield and then on the inside cleaned one of the Fantastic Fan screens and blades.
Right after lunch we headed towards Robby's
|Can you see our new travel buddy|
|Meet Mean gnome|
We are over at Robby's sitting out with the kids they started Spring break today. We are moving up to Elizabethtown Kentucky tomorrow to see the sights? Oh Bonnie is reading from my Kindle, will wonders never cease.
|Using the Kindle for the first time.|
Having some of the left over hotdogs for supper. Ashley is working so once she gets home we will say our goodbyes and head home to the MH. We headed to the MH after 9 but then got a call and had to turn around as my pocket knife was laying on the couch and Gracie wanted to make sure I got it back.
Now time to relax and recharge. Tomorrow we hope to cover just under 300 miles. Heard it is to be in the low 20's back home tonight so we will not be in too much of a hurry. Just checked and its 25 now burr.
Travel day, we head North toward the cold weather today. I was up at 7 and plan to pack up starting at 9 and plan to leave by 10am. We are planning about a 230 mile drive to Elizabethtown, KY. Had my breakfast and Bonnie just got up as the big truck came to dump the trash dumpster. So time for me to get busy and dump the tanks and get them unhooked. So far a nice beautiful sunny day.
We got hooked up and pulled out of the campground just after 10am. A late start especially since we will change timezones and lose an hour.
|Hooked and ready to roll|
We pushed on and got fuel one exit before our campground. We are now in Elizabethtown, KY and set up. A small campground sandwiched into a neighborhood and just off the interstate in fact we can here the traffic but its not too bad. I went out and cleaned off the wheel and could see it is leaking from the axle cover. Not much leaks out during the day but it sure does make a mess.
|Will have to scrub this tire when I get home.|
|I tightened tese nuts the best I could not sure how tight the should be. Looks like they used too much RV sealer.|
|Met Keith when he checked us in around 4 today.|
|Site 36 we did not have to unhook as it was too late to go sightseeing.|
|There is even a small pond|
We slept later than we should have this morning getting a late start hoping to make it to Wellington, OH.
We were on the road by 9am, pretty good for getting up late. Traffic was crazy in Louisville, Cincinnati, and Columbus people going every which way but the GPS kept me in the right lane and we made it through just fine. The wind really started to blow as we got to Columbus and for the last 100 or so miles we really got knocked around. It was totally broadside to us for the last 20 miles on the 2 lane road leading up to the state park. But we made it and we were in Findley State Park near Wellington, OH by 3:45.
|Bonnie had to hold Mean Gnome by the feet to get him to pose for the picture|
We made contact with some friends we have not seen in ages and we will be having supper with them tomorrow night. Tomorrow we plan to visit the old neighborhood and see how much it has changed.
Tonight we drove into Wellington and had supper at the Hunan Kitchen. It was pretty good and the first meal we have eaten out on this trip.
|Broccoli and Chicken|
|General Tso Chicken|
Back at the MH I checked the back wheel and no oil drips yet tonight I will check in the am. We will be here a couple nights and should be home Friday afternoon. Its nice and quiet in the park and only a couple other units are camping. We have electric but no water or sewer hook ups. Well thats it for tonight. Having a little ice cream now and then maybe some TV before we call it a night.
Thanks for Checking In.
