We actually had two days with blue sky in a row here in Elkhart over the weekend! Could this be the beginning of a trend?
Unfortunately, even though the sky was clear the wind still blew hard all day long and the temperature never got above the low 50s. And today the forecast is for a 40% chance of rain and a high in the mid to upper 50s.
The wind and cold didn’t seem to keep RVers off the road though, judging by the ones that pulled into Elkhart Campground over the weekend. It was pretty empty when we arrived here just a week ago, but we were seeing more and more rigs arriving. I suspect many of them are here to wait for Escapade to start next week.
We had company yesterday! My cousin Gary Saxton and his sister Berni Frees stopped by on their way through the area. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen them and there were a lot of smiles and hugs all around. After visiting for a while, the four of us went to Ryan’s Buffet, where we met Gary’s daughter and her husband and their two little ones for lunch. I’m afraid I can’t remember their names, but we enjoyed talking to them. They are interested in the RV lifestyle and have been doing a lot of research, so we answered a lot of questions on the advantages of different types of RVs, boondocking, solar power, and working on the road.
Back at home, I answered a bunch of e-mails, then decided that a nap was appropriate. Miss Terry didn’t try to talk me out of it, because when I’m asleep I’m usually not getting into mischief.
When I woke up I spent the rest of the day and evening writing, getting another 2,500 words done on my next book before I finally knocked off about 11 p.m. While I was doing that, Miss Terry made me a batch of her delicious chocolate chip cookies, then she warped her loom for a new weaving project. We don’t have much planned for the next few days except weaving and writing, and that’s just fine with us. A few people have asked about stopping by to say hello, and as long as it’s not too early in the morning and the curtains are open, please feel free to.
Congratulations Dick Nicolo, winner of an audiobook of The Last Call by George Weir in this week’s Gypsy Journal drawing. We had 117 entries this time around. Stay tuned, another contest starts soon!
