Day 52 – Living the dream

After leaving Mohican (Loudonville, Ohio) we returned to our home area and spent a week at Maumee Bay State park while we had the Jeep set up for towing. We’ve always camped here and love the park especially the bike trails along Lake Erie.

After getting the Jeep all set up we finally, FINALLY, left Ohio and headed into Indiana. whew, seems like it has taken forever dreaming about this and we were actually somewhere new.  Headed to Goshen, Indiana and met up with Howard and Linda Payne of rvddreams. We attended their 2013 fall rally in Franklin, NC and knew that they were in Goshen hosting another rally which gave us the opportunity to get the rig weighed by them.  Well we weighed just fine, all good side to side and underweight so I really didn’t overload this coach.  We had a great time seeing Howard and Linda again and appreciate their friendship and  support.  Jim and Dee Walters joined us and we had a great dinner out.

Well after our meet up’s at the rally we explored Goshen and Elkhart. Elkhart has a great riverwalk and of course we had to stop at the rv museum.

After leaving Goshen we drove south of Indianapolis to Franklin, Ind.  we found a cute little county park and stayed for a bit since it was close to a camping world and we needed to buy a new tow bar. Yep, we had our first mishap and the bar on the front of the jeep snapped when we were going around a corner, bending the tow bar that came with the motorhome.  No damage to the MH, the Jeep, or the bikes so I guess we were lucky.

Leaving there we headed to Dover, TN to Land Between the Lakes and that is where we are still currently at.  We really do love our spot here and our good friend Kyra is about 4 miles away boondocking at one of the neat places to camp.
