Fall 2012 West Coast Trip travel blog


We left for California Friday 8-24. First stop was a quiet campground in Ohio on a lake. They were very nice and very accomodating. They gave us a long site so we could pull thru it and would not have to unhook. It was quite a way from the highway and not very easy to find. There are mainly seasonal campers. Dale had his ear talked off and found out all about the county fair which is larger than most state fairs and the flea markets.

Day 2 we drove to Indiana. We were near Elkhart. This area is a big Amish area so there are lots of craft type stores, furniture and woodworking stores, and food markets run by the Amish and Mennonites. It is also a hugh manufacturing area for RV's.

We are on day 3 now. We are in Rock Island which is across the Mississippi River from Davenport Iowa. Weather has been great untill today. Half of the drive was rain and it has poured since we got here. It is about 8pm our time and it just stopped (we are in central time now so 9pm for most of you#. Our campsite is on the river here #but very wet of course#.

Tomorrow we are going to Omaha where we take a day off of driving. We will be in the Rockies #Fort Collins, Co# for the Labor Day Weekend #5 nites) and then off to Oregon after that.

No pictures yet but there will be lots in the days to come.
