Moving on – to Evansville, IN and Wolf’s Bar-B-Cue

5/2/13 Thursday at Evansville, IN (Vanderburg 4-H Center)

Bad night, hardly slept. Extremely thirsty and light headed. Need to sleep later today. We’re on the road at 9 am. Good roads, except near the the border of Tennessee and Kentucky. Wow, Kentucky. We saw horses soon after the roads got better, then signs for Amish buggies (yellow) who drive on the very spacious shoulder. Unfortunately, we just drove through Kentucky, but we’ll be back.

At about a halfway point, we stopped at a Pilot for fuel and potty break. Unfortunately, our “rewards” card needs a PIN #. Oops, we forgot it. It’s been months since we used Pilot for fuel. So we got our fuel, but no discount.

This campground is right off Hwy 41, so that was nice, but we did have a train passing through periodically. After checking in with the Camp Host, we found our spot and settled in, without putting our slides out since there is a chance of some thunderstorms and because we’re pulling out tomorrow morning. So glad this rig is pretty livable when the slides are in – an important thing to look for when you are shopping.

I’m, of course, sleep deprived, so I took a nap after lunch until 4:40 pm. That helped. Then we dressed up a little (button down shirts instead of T shirts) and went to “Wolf’s Bar-B-Que”. We’d read about it in our “1000 Places to See Before You Die”. Especially since we wouldn’t have much time here at Evansville and it would be a treat not to make our supper. We SO enjoyed our meal there, the service, the ambiance. Their barbecue sauce (also for sale) is a rich ketchup based style, sweet and tangy. Plus the prices were really reasonable. John ate every bite of his and I had leftovers to look forward to.

That meal was a big help, I got a little energy back, so when we returned to our coach, we took a small walk, then settled in for the night. I’ve been drinking lots of water all day. I took Benedryl and used my disposable earplugs for the first time (train), to help with getting some sleep. It was pretty warm, so we put our little fan on an opened a bedroom window when we went to bed.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
