Good food, great friends!

The nice thing about the Elkhart Campground is that sooner or later, many of our friends pass through during the summer. . . either for repairs, rallies, or just a way point. That was the case this week for Jack and Susan. They are here getting some tweaking and service on their Newmar MountainAire motorhome. We had missed an opportunity earlier in the summer to connect with them, but this time we were determined not to let that happen again.

We met at lunch time at Olive Garden and enjoyed a wonderful meal and lots of conversation. It was great to talk with them and to hear about Clancy, their new Boston Terrier puppy. We didn't leave the restaurant until 2, but the staff was great and since the place wasn't too full, they allowed us to sit and visit after our meal.

We have been watching Nick and Terry Russell drooling over their new motorhome. They have been looking for a long time and found a 2002 Winnebago Ultimate Advantage and made the deal last week. It is a very nice unit and looks virtually unused on the inside. I'm sure they will be happy with it. Now (my) Terry has been drooling over some of the tools they intend to sell. I better check the storage bays or he will be casting out more of my stuff. He keeps telling me when I buy something new that I have to toss something. I do, but then when he buys something, he tosses something OF MINE too. Over the years, I have little stuff left. Hah.

Today is a work day over at the apartments. The windows guys will be here at 9 a.m. to start replacing windows in the last duplex that needs them. They will be done about 3 p.m. We also have two sliding patio doors to replace, but another contractor is doing that work later.

Terry brought the service truck back last night so that I could sleep in today and he could go over early. So Neal and I are hanging out at the moment. I think he wants his breakfast, though, so I better get moving.

Till next time. . .

Yes, we enjoyed our get together thoroughly. RVers are the best and you guys are two of the first we met on the road (in Summerdale). Hey Dale, you forgot to mention the "bargain," endless bowl, pasta lunches they served us. Wow, what a deal!

Thanks again for the great information too. LOL, we'll whip this puppy into shape in no time.

Not to worry Bob and Molly. We were at Olive Garden. We did have a great meal, but we can go to Heinnies when you guys get here.

Susan, you are right, RVers are the best. We were glad we were able to connect this time.

Hope you can use the info.

So there really is a Jack! We have only met Susan and when we had talked about meeting in PA in June, Jack was going to be back in WA. I was beginning to believe there wasn't a Jack! LOL. Tell them hi if you see them again.

We are at Scenic Hills and it's nice!

Oh yes, there is a Jack! We're now in Frederick, MD getting ready to head about 48 miles to Cherry Hill Park in College Park.

We did take part of the directions Terry graciously provided and they were perfect for us. It was such a gorgeous drive through Youghiogheny area. (No, I have no idea how to pronounce this word)

We'll be posting as we have Dad placed at Arlington and then tour DC.

Safe travels!
