Elkhart, IN High: 66 Low: 45
We've got some odds and ends to share about Elkhart...That's why Sparky said today's blog is a smorgasbord...It's got a little of everything and not all related, either...(Well, I hate to say it, folks, but that's how Sparky's mind works--a little bit of everything, a little helper-skelter, a hodge podge of information, explains E.)
First, the Eco-Womb Tour rig....We first saw this unusual rig in Bar Harbor, Maine. They were there about two weeks, Sparky thinks...Just "down the street" from us. We didn't get a chance to talk to the family that owns this rig, which was a shame, because they are promoting some wonderful information, a style of green living, parenting, and homeschooling their kids.
"OK, I give up, who?" "The Eco Womb Tour rig." Sparky raced to put on her shoes, boogied out the door, hopped on her bike and rode down to the office. She was just going to say "Hi, neighbors!" and get the scoop on their mission, but they were out the door, on their way to their destination, so she missed them. Phooey! It turns out that they went to the RV Hall of Fame Museum, another wonderful place to visit when you come to Elkhart. The family loved it, as they told Sparky in an email later that day. We hope to run into them again...It's an interesting family, an interesting life and Sparky would love to hear more in person. We'll see you on the road, guys!
Sparky made another visit to the D'Vine Yarn Shop in Shipshewanna......
What else has been going on? More visiting with friends, eating out with friends, eating out at Heinnie's Back Barn....No wonder we need to lose some weight! Elkhart has LOTS of good restaurants!
We've been getting some work done on the car...Transmission service....For anybody who is towing a Honda CR-V, you REALLY need to be changing your differential fluid once a year, this is more important than getting transmission flush and fill service, according to multiple dealership recommendations where we have had service work done at throughout the country in the past two years. When we are in the Elkhart area, we get our work done at Basney Honda in South Bend, we've been very happy with them.
And the days continue to fly by..........
