Newmar factory tour, Nappanee; Notre Dame, South Bend; Studebaker National Museum, South Bend; Shipshewana - to between the restaurant and furnature store and ask for John at the buggy ride, tell him I sent you.

Travel the Heritage Trail using the self guided audio DVD. Visit the Enchanted Gardens. Visit Amish Acres in Nappanee - be hungry and eat there. Visit Quilt Gardens.

That's a starter.

If you need anything fixed call Master Tech RV and see if you can get in. The do great work.

Jeff, be sure to make a stop at Gold Beach. When the Salmon are running the mouth of the Rogue River will have hundreds of boats all circling in line. Really a site to watch. The speed boat trip up the Rogue River is a must do! And set in the front row or your a sissy! Wayne, Earline, Mary and me have maned up to the front row! Fun trip. We stayed at the Rv park right at the mouth of the river and near the small airport. Our neighbors were all there for the fishing and shared some great smoked salmon with us. Was a good stop for us!

Yep! The 54 mile ride on the Rogue River is a must. We were the last two to get on the boat and the only two seat were up front left side. We have Frog Togs rain suits. Breathable and very comfortable. Our undergarments (way under) were soaked. Take a camera and put it in a large zip lock bag. A camera with telephoto lens would be better. Some of the eagles, bears, deer don't show up that well on an iPhone/Android. Use the bag to protect the camera (or think cell phone) and just peek the lens out the opening only when you want to take a picture.

Match my photo of proof that bears do poop in the woods.


We stayed about 1 mile upstream from Gold Beach at Four Seasons RV Resort. Tight but doable.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Jeff, Tim, Wayne, you have made me very JEALOUS! 🤬🤣

Gwen was released from custody on Thursday, so we drove up to Douglas, WY, without a single reason why!

Rogue is now a target, date unknown.

So Tim, where exactly is this haircut place - I can always appreciate fine art.


Barb, several places like that here. I don't really need anything else for the coach right now except bodywork - and that is going to have to wait until I get the credit cards paid down some.


Wayne, I can barely afford to look at Newmars (and/or Renegades) let alone see where they're built. Being a Purdue grad, I'll skip Notre Dame. South Bend story - many years ago, my first wife's best friend married a guy and they moved to South Bend so we went up to visit. He wanted to show us around town. Unfortunately, being a radio engineer, the tour consisted of most of the town's radio towers (he was a nice guy but a real #! nerd)... Studleybarker museum - there's a possibility but we'd have to do it before we go into MI and see all the Duesenbergs at the Gilmore Auto Museum (might be disappointed after that). Haven't been to Amish Acres in a long time, probably good idea for another visit. Just came out of Shipshewana and the big flea market - think the Amish should consider those apron-type things they put behind carriage ride horses to catch the poop, there were piles all along the roads everywhere... May have to try Napanee, we're mostly knocking around trying to find cheap places to park and killing time until I go to a big hobby show outside of Toledo OH in mid-October.

When I mention Notre Dame I'm really talking about the cathedral. It is a great visit. The grounds are nice but typical college grounds.

Front Row or your a sissy! We really did enjoy it. They keep the splashing to a minimum near the end to let you dry out!

I don't rightly know the name or address of the place, Sport Clips, Sports Cut or something like that. Just a place where us sports studs type hang out!

On another note. Thanks for the encouragement about flat towing our Terrain. 11,000ish miles behind our MH and no issues worth mentioning.

Or is that - no issues that weren’t followed by Opps?

So I may be too old to be a good Grampa!

Is I've mentioned before I have a GS that has MLB in his future! (We all can dream). He was recruited to a tournament team that won the State Tournament and now starting fall tournament games. First game was 9am and depending on win or loss games go all day. Mary and I packed a cooler, some snacks and lawn chairs and headed out. We finally made it home around 10:30pm last night, hungry, tired and mosquito bitten!

Might add they won all their games! Today they play back to back games till they lose. We decided in the triple degree heat index, we would set this one out.

I feel bad, but thermometer says 98*.

Pshaw on the 90ºF! If you were any type of grandparent you would be out there with bells on and and brandishing tubs of sunscreen and cheering your lungs out. Seriously cherish being with them as they soon are far away.
