2012 - 2017 Travel Map - Now in the Bad Lands National Park, South Dakota


Tuesday – August 28, 2012 – Travel Day: Butler OH – Crawfordsville IN

Looks like we may have a standard forming around our leaving time ritual.   It’s taking us around 1.5 to 2 hours to fully pack up and be ready to move.   This morning it took the entire 2 hours as we needed to go to the dump station at the campsite.  Were on the road by 11 am and had 288 miles to travel today. 

Today we were going to finally be traveling flat roads so we could see how the fuel mileage was without the hills.  We went from 8 MPH to 9.5 MPH which I think is pretty good.  Just wish the truck had better mileage by its self without pulling.  But for pulling it is pretty good.

We arrived at the campsite in Crawfordsville (my home town) around 4:30 pm.  The site is the best we have had so far.  It is a pull through with full hook-ups and 50A electrical.  We have the se-up routine down now it seems.  It took us about 30 minutes to set up.  

Patty’s right elbow was hurting her more so we decided to take her to the hospital here and see if it is more than just a bruise.  After a 2 hour wait and an x-ray we found out that it was just a bruise.  She got some really good pain meds and we were off to see the grandkids J

We stopped for a pizza and Patty got her prescription filled and then we went over to see the grandkids.  They were allowed to stay up to see us as long as they promised to get up for school in the morning.  Even at 8:30 everybody had pizza. 

Tomorrow everybody comes to visit us at the campground!
Stay tuned!
