If you don’t like the weather in northern Indiana this time of year, just wait a day or two and it will change. Usually for the worse.
Last week it was in the 80s for a couple of days and then it got cold and rainy again. The high yesterday was 53o and it rained pretty much nonstop. The high today is supposed to be only 45o with a low of 33o tonight. What the hell happened to spring? Meanwhile, a friend of mine who lives in Kodiak, Alaska said it was 68 o there yesterday!
I only had one seminar to present yesterday, Boondocking Tips: Living Well Off The Grid, and the room was pretty well packed. Even though I had not presented that particular seminar in a couple of years it seemed to go over well and the audience response was very positive.
Terry had a busy day in our vending booth, selling books, RVing guides, our 8-in-1 E-book CDs, and subscriptions to the Gypsy Journal. We had a lot of old friends stopping by to say hello, which is always nice. And a lot of new friends came by to introduce themselves and say hello.
Several people picked up a bundle or two of the Gypsy Journal to pass out in their travels, and that is a huge help to us in spreading the word about the paper and what we do. We drop off sample bundles at RV parks and shops wherever we are traveling, but we cannot be everywhere. When our readers drop papers off wherever they happen to be going it really expands our reach in ways that we never could do on our own. If you’d like to take a bundle or two with you to drop off at RV parks during your summer travels, we’d be forever grateful. Stop by our vendor booth and we’ll fix you right up.
Yesterday evening we went back to the South Side Soda Shop for dinner, along with fellow vendors Gary and Linda Baecker, Daryl and Jeffrey Lawrence, and Charles and Chris Yust. We had a good time, the food was excellent, and we saw several other people from the rally eating there. Among the many things it’s famous for, the restaurant’s desserts are outstanding. Linda ordered this hot fudge sundae, and I chose the pecan pie alamode. Yummy!
Today is the last day of vending for the rally and I imagine it will be busy, as last days usually are. I have two more seminars to present today, The Reluctant RVer at 10 a.m. and Fulltiming FAQs at 3 p.m. Hopefully Terry won’t be overrun with last minute shoppers while I’m gone.
The Escapade actually ends on Saturday morning, but we’ll be pulling out tomorrow morning to get back to Elkhart Campground and catch our breath for a couple of days before my self-publishing workshop on Monday. I’m looking forward to not having to get up at 7 a.m. every morning.
