They're great. Just follow the instructions. The weight of each jack will indeed SNAP them into place. You need a 2nd person close by to adjust them EXACTLY under the landing gear, and you need to be able to raise/lower the gear if it needs adjusting as it comes down. But it's easy.

And the room I saved in truck by not carrying blocks!!!

On a normal year. August is a warm month and generally dry in Indiana.

The two times we were there the weather wasn't too bad. If I remember rained 1 day and a couple of nights. Other wise, even temps were not too bad.

Weather wise:

'17 was cold
'16 was wet and tornados
'15 was hot and drought
'14 was stinky (probably cause we parked across the laneway from the pig sty)

Despite all that I've loved every one and I'm really sad we didn't get the time off to be able to go this year.

Thanks to Elaine, who kept the coffee (and cups) coming,which came out of her kitchen. We had a lot of fun dodging rain drops and making sure all the parking teams were well taken care of. The Hydration Team rocked it!

Coming from South Florida, wondering if we need to get some LONG-JOHNS for the Northern Country.

The Elkhart County Chamber of Commerce has issued a proclamation that there will be no cold weather or rain this year.

Hey, these folks are coming from SOUTH Florida. I'm thinking they should bring down parkas, ski gloves, wool shirts, flannel lined jeans...

Reminds me a trip I took with DW to Vegas once. It was in December, and the temp in Vegas at the time was 64. To us northerners, that's a really nice temperature and we were walking around enjoying the fair weather in jeans and a T-shirt. We hopped in a cab at one point and the cabbie had on a parka, a toque, thick gloves and a scarf.

Arrving early or staying late to Goshen

Pros and cons to either come early or stay late.
Does it help with getting in or leaving without a big traffic jam? Is it just a preference?
Any things that happen because you are early or after?

I have never had more than a 10 minute delay coming in or leaving unless I needed to go thru dump station.

Now that is a real understatement, Trains run 24/7 the worst night is Thursday. You seem to get use to it, and you kinda forget about them. There is a major hub there and every train passes though Goshen. The tracks run across the main road in, and by law they have to blow there whistles at the crossing.
