Goshen, Indiana and Mother's Day May 10 & 11, 2014, Saturday and Sunday

Yesterday morning we leisurely packed up the motorhome and by 10am we were on our way for the 21 mile trip to Goshen, Indiana for the Escapade at Elkhart County Fairgrounds.  We did not even bother hooking up the car to the motorhome, just drove each one.  We were promptly parked in the Infield area of the racetrack and have 30-amp electric and water, no sewer.  The rally does not officially begin until Monday.  It was a pleasant warm day with temps in the upper 70's.  Since we do not have sewer hook-up, I avoid getting dishes dirty as much as possible so in these situations we eat out a lot.  We had gotten a coupon from Martin's grocery store for Culver's (bogo sandwiches and ice cream) that we used on this day.

Today, we walked to the area for registration to pick up our packet of information and name tags .  Then for lunch we went to Hacienda restaurant.  After returning back to the motorhome I received a phone call from Todd and Beth wishing me a happy Mother's Day.  Always so nice to hear from family.  It is another nice day with temperature in the mid 80's.  Being parked in the first row in the Infield of the racetrack we are entertained with horse harness race training throughout the day.  We are also not too far from train tracks so we frequently hear train whistles- what's new for camping locations??
