Zanesville, Ohio to Elkhart, Indiana (301 miles)

Andy was up early and anxious to go.  I had stayed up until midnight to take my medicine and was not eager to get out of bed. Nonetheless, we were on the road at 0839.  I took one Imodium for the road.

We zigged and zagged across Ohio and Indiana farm country and a number of small towns. There was a lot of road repair and consequent detours in Lima, Ohio and we got a thorough tour of the city. I love driving on country roads and looking at all the farmhouses and crops.

Andy directed me to a Cracker Barrel restaurant (mostly for the RV parking) for lunch. It was packed and all the rocking chairs out front were filled with people waiting for a table. So I was surprised when they called us in ten or fifteen minutes.

Elkhart, Indiana is the RV capital of the world. There are a large number of RV manufacturers here.  The city hit hard times during the great recession, when people stopped buying RVs. We arrived at the Elkhart Campground at five o’clock.  I immediately took a nap. When I woke up, we took a long walk. The activity tracker says it was five miles, but I can’t believe it.

We are very close to the repair shop where we have an appointment tomorrow. I am ready for some electricity.
