8/28/2012 We were up at 8:00 am and slowly got ready to drive onto Elkhart, IN, 210 miles away. We needed gas so we drove back into Marion (with the help of Jeanne’s GasBuddy app on her phone). We bought gas for $3.599/gal. Little did we know that this was probably the cheapest gas we would see for some time. We found our way back to the Ohio Turnpike and headed west. We arrived at the Elkhart Campground at 3:45 pm. The campground has spacious sites, some shaded. The restrooms and showers were not as clean as we like. There is a nice laundry. Their cable reception was lousy so we cranked up the satellite dish and had excellent reception. Their water tested out within our range, so we hooked it up. Later, we were sorry we did. The water smelled of sulfur and left a horrible stain on the side of the RV. We finally got the stain off with rubbing compound. Thank God for small town hardware stores!! They have everything! And employ people that can tell you what everything does!
This RV is very similar to the trailer home that Jeanne lived in at the age of 1-1/2 years old with her newborn sister and parents in Aiken SC. No, she doesn't remember, just has the pictures to prove it.
There are lots to see in the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart.
