Day 4 started with phone alarm at 6 am, veggie mite on toast and good brew started the day that was reminiscent of chilly uk. Packed up and ready to go for 7.30am the long drive approx 4 hours awaits.

Around 4pm we headed to the camp site in Indiana our 6th state so far. Camp site can only be described as southern motor home heaven (not in good way). Trains passing at every hour, key lock showers and motor bikes around. Dinner was cooked and provided by Claire, Luke And Dani. Fajitas spicey southern feel went down a treat.

Night ended with conversation and sleeping with very little on 25c night time temp...
