There is a new website that is gaining popularity with folks in the RV industry and their customers. It’s kind of like a ‘Facebook’ for campers and you should give gander at http://www.rvillage.com I have belonged for about 6 weeks and can report -0- SPAM and it is at no cost.
We stayed at the Elkhart Fairground for 7 days after the Escapade for some R&R and to await mail. We joined the Tri-State Rally taking advantage of the any Escapee can attend any event policy of The Escapees.
Why are these folks smiling? They just finished a pot luck supper and are awaiting a local trio to give a great performance, enjoyed by all.
We spent Wednesday at the huge flea market/farmer’s Market in Shipshewana. We walked our feet of, having a late lunch at their restaurant where Anne-Marie really enjoyed an old favorite ‘Ham Meatloaf’ This was one of her specialties when we did a bunch of fraternal cooking, the folks always enjoyed it.
The previous owner of our rig had the sofa removed and a very functional desk built in, it gives us a very useful floor plan. They installed 2 residential overstuffed recliners. These are too big and have to go.
This area of Indiana is home to a large community of Amish Farmers and skilled cabinet makers as witnessed by the horse & buggies parked at the RV manufacturing plants. We looked in 3 furniture showrooms in the area, the quality was outstanding to say the least.
The 3rd place the owner quickly suggested the we visit Lambright Comfort Chairs http://www.amishcountry.org/leisure/lambright-comfort-chairs which we did. This is the place you need if looking for RV furniture of very high quality. They make items for Newmar and Tiffin, high end motor-homes to say the least. We ordered 2 of the chairs shown below, we will pick them up on our way back to Elkhart for the Fleetwood/F.M.C.A. rally.
We are now in Nobelsville, IN about 120 miles south. We are camping with Charlie & Sue Schaffer as they have strong family ties here.
