5/4/14 Sunday in Decatur, IN (Allied Recreation Group)
After good by hugs with Karen/Sherie we were on our way by 8:30 am. Nice to get started sooner rather than later. We were grateful that Karen/Sherie showed us a good route to take, since Ohio is their home state they know the roads. Other than stops for fuel and a rest, it was pretty uneventful. I must note that Ohio needs to put more resources into their roads, they’re pretty rough in general. US 68 was the pits-2 lane with many bad potholes and patches yet US 33 was wonderful-4 lane much of the way and smooth. Lots of farmland along our route. We did hit a lot a wind in the last part of our trip, so John had to work harder to stay straight and our fuel mileage suffered. Quite a few dead critters on the road; some deer, several raccoons and opossums.
Arriving by noon we got fresh water from their dump/water site (they just have a dirt parking lot with power supplied where we park the RV). The pluses are we have satellite reception as well as WiFi from the office. John spent his afternoon watching golf and car racing while I napped. Hey, I didn’t sleep well last night. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
We’re supposed to meet with the team tomorrow, I think at 7 am. The repairs we’re here for: D/S water leak and bedroom water leak that they’d repaired in September but returned. Also to attach the wiper seal to our front P/S (passenger side) slide. Plus service our engine (fluids and filters) and inspection of chassis for lubrication. Also check window weep holes at D/S (driver’s side) chair and P/S chair.
A bit of spring to brighten your day.
