Where I stayed
Heartland Woods RV Resort
The RV park was nice enough, with lots of trees, usually our nemesis, but we managed to point the portable satellite dish through a break in the canopy of branches. It was actually a good thing that we were using the portable dish, because it works better in the rain and we got lots of rain.... at least once every day....then it would be super steamy!!!
The rain and humidity not only made being outside uncomfortable, it was downright dangerous, at least for me, because the mosquitoes were terrible! I must be allergic to them, because I get welts that last for about 4-5 days of pure torture for me. I have to take Benedryl pills, smear the area with Benedryl cream and use ice packs to bring down the heat, swelling and miserable itching. So, if I had to go outside, in spite of the heat, I had to cover up with socks, long pants and sleeves, use bug spray and I also use one of those OFF fans (that you see advertised on TV, that you clip on your belt, etc.) Needless to say, I stayed inside with the A/C as much as possible.
On Saturday, the 24th, we drove down to Elkhart, IN to check out the RV and Motorhome Museum and Hall of Fame.
They only had 3-4 new RVs but they had a lot of 'antiques'. Here's just a few of them:
One of my favorites was the 1928 Luxury Housecar that had lace curtains in the windows and the rear sort of looked like the back platform of a train, with a metal fence and lanterns.
They also had one of the early prototypes of the classic silver Airstreams
Back at our RV park, they were also holding a Christmas in July week and several RVs were decorated with Christmas lights and trees, etc.
