Nicely done sir.  Did you put a door in the back of the camper so as to have access to the deck?

Thank you

 

No, the dinette is there and the deck is split, so it is not a full width deck, more like a car hauler to save weight.

Was in SE Kansas today and asked my navigation app to guide me to RVH Lifestyles. It took me to their first location. Found Jack's number and I was only a few miles away and it was still on my route to my next destination. Stopped by for a visit and took a tour through the camping area on my way out. The electronic devices to help out in many ways, but sometimes they still need some alternative thinking to bring out the real info.

Back in Bismarck ND for the summer project.  Just east on I-94 is Menoken, and the Park is "A Prairie Breeze"  plenty of room for big rigs.

I'll be delivering an ambulance in Bismarck this week. Jay

We have been on a journey from wintering in Falfurrias, Texas.  San Antonio, Cottonwood AL, Smyrna TN, Florence IN.  We arrived in Greenville OH last night.  The Garst Museum is first on the list.  We might just get to the Air Force museum in Dayton.  Very few campgrounds there and either very expensive or bad reviews.  
We will be in Laingsburg, Michigan next week for a wedding.

Hi Rick, we stayed at Follow the River.  Nice place!  After the Ark Encounter we were on the fence about staying longer.  After some discussion we decided not to visit the Creation museum.  Also after studying the river route I followed the Garmin route to I-71 - I-75 and we topped off fuel at the TA before I-275.  We then looped west and north to try highway 127.  35 mph city stop and go 2 lanes and a few stares.  Lol.  That lasted until I could get over to I-75 again.  
I would have liked to see the scenic river drive and your farm.  For future reference is the river road big rig friendly?  The road on the Kentucky side was not good!

Yes, the road on the Indiana side of the river is fine.  There's a couple of rough spots, and you have a sharp turn in Aurora, but plenty of trucks go that way.

We're between the only Indiana exit on I-275 and the first Ohio exit.

Since the first of the year, we've been home 7 weeks, and are there now.  We spent 7 weeks meandering to/from, and about Texas, home for about 4 weeks, then two weeks at the ECR, and another week north to Middlebury, IN for some rv repairs.  Got home again Saturday evening.

We'll be here for May, but I have two motorcycle trips in June, one to Tennessee, and one to Wisconsin.

We have just started a 2-1/2 month long trip, about 6000 miles that will take us zig zagging across the Midwest. From South Carolina we head to North Central Missouri for a custom van event, then to Central Indiana for Memorial Day weekend for another. We will spend a week at Indiana Beach visiting with the kids, then work our way around Lake Michigan and head to Madison WI to see the father in law for father's day and birthday. Then we head to South Dakota to the black hills area for a week. On our way back, we will stop in Minnesota for our National Custom Van show, then back to Indiana for a week for family reunion, then home. It is tricky planning a trip to cover family events, shows and site seeing but this is what we hoped for when I retired! We are currently at a truck stop at the NC SC border heading to Old Mill Campground near Cookeville TN.

Safe Travels!  If you will travel through northern Kentucky, I highly recommend The Ark Experience.  (On the pricey side I will admit)

Thanks it is on our list to do. We will be fairly close to it when we stop near Grand Rapids.

Are you staying at Hidden Ridge Near Hopkins Mi. by chance? Gilmore has a cruise-in every Wednesday evening usually over 100 cars along with Hamburgers served with adult beverages.  If you are there on a Wed look for us, we will be driving a Dusk Rose (pink) 57 Thunderbird.

We will be up just East of Grand Rapids at Alice Springs RV park. Which is about 1 hour North of the museum. I was just planning on driving our smart car. We will be coming in on Wednesday so probably not enough time to unload our custom van and drive down to the cruise-in with it. May just plan to stop by on our way past from Elkhart.  Thanks for the info.

This is where we stayed when we visited the Gilmore Museum also, nice place to  camp with plenty of room
