Goshen!

It was a relatively short trip from Indianapolis to Goshen. Our site at the Indianapolis KOA was really nice. There were a few trees around, it was level and it was surrounded by cornfields.

In fact, the entire trip from Indianapolis to Goshen was through cornfields. It was a-maize-ing!

Unhooking at Indianapolis, we had our first Black Tank incident. Not quite like the movie RV, but a spill none the less. As I pulled the valve to empty the tank, one of the hook connectors broke on the sewer hose. A spill, but we hid it from the EPA, washed everything off and went on our way.

Arriving in Goshen, we pulled into the local WalMart for a few essentials. We also try to unhook the tow before getting to the campsite. It just makes maneuvering around the camp easier. We unhooked the car and it wouldn’t start. Add jumper cables to the shopping list. Not sure why that happened, it had never happened before. Our 7 pin connector is supposed to keep the car’s battery charged when towing but for some reason, it didn’t. Another mystery to solve. As my favorite football coach would say, ‘It’s part of the process!’

So, while we were at WalMart, we noticed a little building to the side of the parking lot. We knew we were in Indiana Amish country but were still a bit surprised to see what the building was…

Amish Country!

It is the Amish parking garage. Water and shelter for the horses.

We arrived at the Rally and had an informal session last night around a campfire. With roughly 30 of us there. we had just started to talk about what’s ahead for the week when the rain came. Everybody scattered and went back to their RVs for the night. Registration is this afternoon with a ‘get to know each other’ session tonight.
