Random talk and thoughts at goshen

I thought I would share my observations from the past 10 days or so while travelling to staying at and leaving, Goashen. I didn't know what to expect when we got there. I was determined not to worry about a thing, just go with the flow and see what happens. After all, most people with RV's and very nice and pretty friendly. Now, I did know what to expect while travelling. Every year I say " I am never staying at a KOA again!" We always get stuck with a crappy site. Well, a few years ago we stayed at a KOA and I was familiar with the location and it was about the halfway mark from Home to Goshen. Reservation made..........arrival after a 440 mile trip. They got me again. The guy leads us to our site. I pull in and say, a little tight huh? He says, Nah its not that bad, but you might want to talk to your neighbors when they get back cause they are hooked up to your sewer. Yah. I twll him " I'm tired and we are getting up early tomorrow to leave this place. Thanks, have a good night."

The second day of travel was uneventful, stayed at a Ramada and left the rig plugged in outside. We arrived in Goshen around 11:00 AM on Sunday. We get escorted to our site and get ready to get ready. This is where I realize I have made my first major error. Apparently, it is against the law to sell beer on Sunday in Indiana. All I have is a case of Micro Brew for the beer tasting night. Should I? Well, the rules said two six packs and you have a Growler and four six packs.

OK so on to the point of random talk and thoughts at Goshen. Here are some of the things that I observed and/or heard:

Everyone that passed by: Hello, How are you.
Everyone I passed by: Hi, I'm Steve!
I know dinner is at 5:30 but if we get in line at 4:30, we won't have to stand in line as long.
Honey, should I wear a golf shirt or my hawaiian shirt
I wonder if they sell ice
Did anyone leave a crock pot behind? How about a crock pot cover? Anyone?
Look at that guys bike, the tires are really small and he is so tall.
If we leave our chairs right here in what appears to be the front, nobody will put there chairs in front of us because there is no shade there.
Lets go look at the new RV's. Can we get a new one when we get home?
Where is the Berkshire salesman? He was just here a few minutes ago.
Can you look around and see if there are any more EZ-UPS we can bring over here?
They don't make beer in Kentucky, so I brought this!
What movie is playing at the Tiki Hut tonight?
Hey Honey! Do these sandals look OK with black socks?
Are we going the right way?
The service techs are outstanding!
Sign this flag and come back next year!
You live 30 minutes away and you're sleeping here for 6 nights?
The Factory tour was great!
I am a Forest River customer for life
Are you coming back next year?
Honey, there is no way that the service techs are going to help us get your dentures out of the black tank.
The meals were great.

So on the way home, we had a blow-out in Ohio. We limped off the highway and changed the tire. That was fun. We decided to just keep on driving, sleep in a rest area and try to make it home by Sunday.

Thats the first time we took our Fifth Wheel on the road and slept in our truck.


See you next year!

I forgot about the ride out of town. We took route 13 through Middlebury to get to I-90 East. As we were going through Middlebury, we could see that either there was a parade or there was about to be a parade. Then, about a half mile down the road, we see a young Amish family. The Mother and Father were probably in their 30's, with their 5 children. They are all riding bikes into town and as we are riding out. The whole family waves to us and the father gives us a big thumbs up. That was pretty cool.

Ok I was laughing at the dentures comment and showed it to DH. I said, I wouldnt want to put those dentures back in my mouth after they were in the black tank, would you? DH said, well that depends, if they were yours I would. So apparently DH would put my dentures that fell into the black tank into his mouth. My next question to DH was do you have dementia? (Fyi, neither of us have dentures).
