Our month at Wright-Patterson has come to an end. We’ve really enjoyed this area and neither of us are sure we’re ready to leave…but, leave we must, as we have a ‘thing’ to attend in northern Wisconsin in a few weeks.
Our oldest son, Zack, and his family will be moving back to Wisconsin in the next few months and he’ll be taking on a medical recruiting position for the US Army in the Madison area. Since our younger son, Dan, and his family already live in the Madison area we’re pretty excited that they’ll all be in the same area which will make our life a little easier as we won’t have to travel great distances between them anymore.
So with that in mind…I wouldn’t doubt if we’re back in their area again at some point.
We chose to travel to Wisconsin via Elkhart, Indiana as Michael had a couple of things he needed to check on in the Elkhart area. We’ll stay here two nights so that we can run a few errands tomorrow.
It was just a 224 mile drive and much of it was on quiet country roads…my favorite! We pulled out of our site at 8:47 am beating our 9:00 am goal. Not very often that we don’t hit (or beat) our targeted departure.
As Michael was putting away the power cord he found a peculiarity. He’d had to use our 50 amp extension cable as the regular cord didn’t quite reach. As he tried to pull them apart he couldn’t…try as he might. He even had me hold one and he the other with both of us tugging…no luck. He ended up having to use a screw driver to carefully pry them apart.
Looks like they semi-melted together. The extension cord is a goner…but I think the actual power cord to the coach is fine.
The drive was nice…started out kinda foggy but when that dissipated it was a nice day with the temp hovering around 76 or so the majority of the way. Much of the drive was a quiet country roads (my favorite!) with lots of scenery to watch as we traveled.
We stopped a couple of times to use the restroom but had a nice uneventful trip.
Our route took us right past Rise ‘n Roll…and it would have been practically a sin to not stop! The lots was pretty full but Michael used his expert skills and got us backed into a spot out of the way.
We shared a Turkey & Bacon wrap and grabbed some goodies (corn salsa, pickles, ham spread, cheese spread and of course, donuts!) and were on our way again in less than an hour.
Our site has no sewer and is just 30 amp and Michael decided to forgo putting up the satellite dish so set up was a breeze. He didn’t even hook up to water, just filled the fresh water tank and we’ll live off of that while we’re here. Since we’re here for just two nights I didn’t unpack much of anything inside either.
