Sunday, June 18th
We were up at 7:00 am so that we could head down to the rally hall for breakfast and to see our Heartland family one last time before pulling out of the fairgrounds. It poured as we drove to the rally hall and then pretty much stopped once we were inside…of course!
After saying our goodbyes and getting lots of hugs and handshakes we headed back home to finish our move day chores and hitch up. We ended up pulling out of the fairgrounds and 9:29…ahead of our 10:00/11:00 am guesstimated time of departure.
We chose to head east on 34 and then go south on 13 so as not to go through Goshen or deal with the partial construction that was west on 34.
It turned out to be a very nice drive. Not far from the fair grounds we came across an Amish home that was hosting church services and all of the horses and buggies were parked in the pasture along the road. Loved it!
About 45 minutes or so after we hit the road we got some rain…light at first and then a littler harder but nothing that wasn’t drivable through so and it only lasted about 20 minutes so we just continued on down the road enjoying the beautiful countryside.
We only had a little over 200 miles to drive today so we didn’t make any stops at Kelly’s Kitchen but we did make a couple of roadside stops to use the bathroom in the coach.
We entered Ohio about halfway through today’s drive and then hit the interstate less than an hour from our destination. We followed a Bighorn from Florida onto the interstate and we’re pretty sure they were coming from the rally too but it wasn’t anyone we knew.
After completing my ‘set up’ chores and got dinner underway….nothing fancy just some grilled burgers, corn on the cob and steamed zucchini. Our first real ‘home cooked’ meal in quite sometime and it was good!
