It rained and rained last night and the temperature dropped into the 40's. Our roof top ac units are also heat pumps and they did a good job of keeping us comfortable. Bonnie left first again for the seminars and I followed about an hour later. I attended a Geeks on Tour class on Google Maps.

We did run the Hydro Hot heat a little, two woman came to the door and told Bonnie it was blowing black smoke and wanted to make sure it was ok, I was in the shower and it was fine when I went out and looked just some steam which later quit also. But for now the heat pumps are working we will see what happens over night. I think if it gets too cold the Hydro Hot should come on.
We headed for the 7pm door prize give away, no one we knew one.

|Let the show begin|
After the show we headed back to the rig to relax a little and then get a good nights sleep. Tomorrow is the last day of Escapade but we will be here until Monday.
Today was the last day of Escapade. I took it easy this morning while Bonnie went to a couple of classes. I did a load of wash. After I put the Melaleuca Brightener in I discovered there was no soap. So the load just had brightener. It did not look to bad. Bonnie got here in time for lunch and we took it easy. We checked on our friend Kathy and she is still under the weather, hope she feels better soon.
Then we headed up for the closing session and grand prize drawings. I made a quick stop at the fairgrounds office and extended our stay for 2 days. We did not win the Grand Prize of a 10day Caravan Tour, nor the free Balloon Festival HOP. But the volunteer prize was won by our friend John Huggins. He won a Wave 3 Catalytic heater for his coach.
We had talked to Jim the 5th Wheel parked in front of us and he is moving his rig tonight so we can get out in the morning. We needed to head to town for some laundry soap and groceries so we took off.

We hope to be at Cave City, KY on Monday and I made reservations there.
Well time now to get some rest.
We were up way to early this morning. Today was Bonnie's first day of driving school. Don her instructor was here right at 8am. We had just finished closing up the slide and preparing to hit the road. We did a walk around, tested the air brakes and got a little instruction on hand signals. Then Bonnie took the wheel and I backed her out of our parking spot. We spent quite a bit of time here in the fairgrounds practicing the tight turns on the corners.

We got up after 8:30 this morning thats more like it. Bonnie had put a load of wash in as we went to bed and that was dry this morning, so I think she is figuring out the combo washer/dryer. We took it easy and said good-by to some of the new friends we have met here as they pulled out. The I spotted Sam and his dog Riggens. I read his blog and I got to say hello but they were packing up so I did not bother him but to say hello.
Then I took my time and unhooked and got ready for Bonnie's driving lesson. Don called and said he was going to be here about 2pm. I had the tires and the oil all checked and after a walk around we were ready to pull out.
Today we drove some of the back roads of Goshen around a detour, then the busy streets of, then headed up to the interstates.

Our friends are still not feeling well so we stay in and ate some left over Chicken and corn it was good. Bonnie is doing another load of wash and we are watching a little TV. The weather was beautiful today, did not need the heat pump or AC.
Going to post this now. Tomorrow we head South to Kentucky.
Thanks For Checking In!
