We have a trip planned for Memorial Day weekend at Brown County SP.. Can't wait, looking forward to riding around the area on our HD... I've heard the area is called "The Smokey Mountains of Indiana"...

To the rest of you... what's all this crazy talk... Guitars... Banjos... Singing.. Outdoor entertainment systems... Campfires... Don't you know some people go camping at RV Resorts, COE's, Walmart's, State Parks and Private Campgrounds to get away from people, how dare you intrude on their personal space

Seriously... nothing better than meeting new and interesting people who share the same passion...

David, if you are 62 or older, you can get a Senior Pass that can give you 50% off of most NPs (which USACOE is one of the participating agencies). Greatest deal for the over 62 club.

Howdy - I have lived in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, frequently visited Montana seeing friends - I have a hard time calling anything in Indeeanner "Mountain"!! Tongue definatly in cheek..........LOL

I'd call them more like hills or better yet - bumps!

Indiana is geographically challenged unless you love large, to the horizon, corn fields. (I do - reminds me of Kellogg's Corn Flakes commercials or Field of Dreams) Now Brown County is another story. Brown County SP is firmly in Indiana Hill Country. Nashville, IN is the town just north of the park and the Spring is a wonderful time of year to visit before the real heat & humidity hit.

Nashville was started as an artist community long before I arrived in Indeeanner 30 years ago and Nashville has grown in size and it a very popular spot for Hoosiers and Kentuckians alike to visit to buy those crafted, home made treasures. (From the Far East)

It is also a very popular destination for HD groups and there are some neat country roads ideal for touring.

We will be at Prophets Town State Park over Memorial Day - about 2 hours north of Brown County and just the opposite as far as scenery. Prairie - flat as can be. On the eastern most edge of the US Prairie - the sign says so......

Enjoy our state - if you come down thru I-74, (recommended) you will pass right through my town, Brownsburg. We are your last exit before Indianapolis.......stop and get a White Castle......

Take care, be safe,

g

There is also an America The Beautiful pass that you can get for free if you are receiving disability from SS. All you need to do is show them your award letter and you get 1/2 off at five different federal facilities. http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm

I always bring my guitars with me. If I'm going on a long trip, I'll even bring my keyboard. You'd be surprised how many musicians I've met along the road. Some great times have been had too.

I do travel with my Stratocaster and a mini amp (yes, I play the amp back though headphones). And, I've been working on a bit from Thunderstruck if you want a little AC/DC (ok, it really needs to be played on a Gibson SG..........).

But, since I've only been playing for a little over a year, I'm far from being ready to play in public.....

Fun Camp Grounds

For many people the "Motor Home/Camping Lifestyle" is a very social endeavor. Many people truly enjoy being outside, talking with their neighbors, sitting around a camp fire, attending rallies and getting involved so many of the other activities that make up the social component of this life style.

However, that's not true for everyone. For some of us, traveling in a motor home is how we truly get away from it all. For my wife and me, it is a solitary life style and our motor home is our sanctuary. We don't make friends easily and we genuinely enjoy just spending time together...just the two of us. It's very unlikely that you'll see us sitting outside because we don't really enjoy doing that. We're not anti-social, we're just a private couple who enjoys a more solitary approach to the motor home lifestyle.
