Preparing for a Week of Rally Camping, May 9,2014, Friday

Early this morning we began having periods of rain that would continue throughout the morning.  Then in the afternoon the winds became blustery as the rains ended.  Since this is our last day before going to the Elkhart County Fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana we needed to prepare for a week of camping with limited hook-ups.  The main job was getting the laundry done.  Between laundry loads we drove to the Fairgrounds to check out our route of travel for tomorrow and then stopped at a grocery store for a few items.

The couple in the motorhome next to us are new RVers and are traveling without a tow vehicle.  Tom talked with this couple (Charlie and Elaine) yesterday and learned that they are in need of some things for their motorhome so he offered to take Charlie to a nearby RV surplus store this afternoon.  Not everything on Charlie’s list was available but he was able to get some things and learned the location of this store.
