Where I stayed
Now to today: We left camp at 9:30 this morning heading towards Crawfordsville, IN via I-69S. The land was quite flat and the farms were beautiful. Many of the farmers had mowed wide grass strips around their fields giving them the appearance of manicured parks on a large estate. We saw corn and soybeans as we drove—anything I couldn’t personally identify I call alfalfa. John, who grew up on a small farm would inform me that I was incorrect and I was once again looking at soy beans. (I still think some of it was alfalfa!)
About halfway we stopped for fuel
By the way, we think that we are probably as far west as we will go on this trip. Hmmm. We have been as far east and as far north as we will go. What could it mean? There is only one other direction for us to take and I guess that is south. Are we "there" yet? Maybe not. The next few days will tell the tale!
When we arrived at the Crawfordsville KOA at 1:15 the temperature was 80 degrees. The humidity is still fairly low but we understand that is not the case in Mt. Juliet. Hmmm.
We registered for a site and then headed to our friend’s home and the promise of a menu of: Pasta Salad with Chicken and Bacon, Paula Deen’s Grape Salad, Sliced homegrown tomatoes, rolls, and HOMEMADE FRESH PEACH PIE! Well the pie we will have to admit was a major draw, but we were really looking forward to seeing our friends, Jane and Don, as it has been three years since we have seen them. As usual their Hoosier Hospitality was warm, gracious and welcoming
Leaving their home we drove four miles back down the road to our site for the night. This is an older KOA (many of them are!) but we have a level site, the electric is good, and I think I have wifi! We shall see in a few minutes when I try to post this blog!
We drove 189 miles today.
