Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, totally worn out, shouting "Wow...What a Ride!"

Back On the Road

We spent the next few nights in a hotel where the room probably had more square footage than our home. Our days were filled with touristy things, we dropped by Lambert RV Furniture and looked at new theater seating...I can see some in our future. Picking up stuff at the local Amish markets...too early for the Shipshewana market. We took a tour of the Newmar factory...don't think they're in our future. On the grounds of the RV\MH Hall of Fame there was RV dealer show where we spent a few hours going in and out of lots of 5th wheels and motorhomes. Lots of meals ready to be back in our own home to eat Dave's home cooking.

On Friday this was a site to behold

After a quick test of the bedroom slide we were on our way to Ravenna OH and West Branch State Park...for our third time there. We finally got ahead of spring.

 A great park convenient to Ravenna where one my most favorite Italian restaurants is...a great place to celebrate a birthday. 

Our final stop northward was an overnight once again in Verona NY at one of the few places open at the end of April. Our slide didn't work so guess Dave will be looking at that this summer. This year though it was also the meet up with a high school friend I hadn't seen since graduation. Three hours of reminiscing and catching up went by in a flash.

We pulled into Maplewoods Campground  on April 28th as planned, leaving spring a week or so behind. Dave started back to work on 5/1, I helped get the campground ready for opening. The campground opened on 5/9 the same day the owners sister quit...since then I've been working quite a bit. I'm working the store and also getting Campground Master installed and ready to use by the end of May.We did get the slide out but looks like it'll be a project or a stop in IN again on the way west this fall.

Now to catch up with everyone's blog.
Until next time...


  1. Glad you made it safe and sound. Bummer about that slide. It sounds like they have great customer service though. Maybe it's just something simple (fingers crossed).
