Day Brothers RV Sales are a great group of people. They are very attentive to their customers and go the extra mile to see that everything is done right. It is a family owned business and you will feel like you are family. I am happy to say we had a wonderful experience with them.
We were able to park right next to the motorhome. It took three and a half hours to unload and was after 9:00 p.m. when the last items were loaded. By the time we left the dealership, grabbed a bite to eat and fueled up it was after 10:00 before we were on the road. Since we were both wide awake we agreed we would travel until we got tired. It was around 3:00 a.m. when we arrived in Whitestown, IN and were both exhausted so we pulled in the the Mejier's store parking lot, set the parking brake, climbed in bed and spent the rest of the night, or morning. No one knocked on the door and asked us to leave so I guess it was ok.
Our next stop was Sandwich, IL to visit our dear friends Dennis and Donna Cave.
We arrived early enough to enjoy taking a walk with Dennis and Donna to the Sandwich Fair which is a large annual event and has food, rides and steam operated engines just to name a few. Donna treated us to homemade lasagna and Italian sausage for dinner. It was so tasty.
The next morning Donna served some breakfast pizza before we hit the road. It was yummy. This is the breakfast pizza we had when we visited before. John and I both love it. We finally got around to saying "see ya later" and was preparing to leave when I remembered I hadn't gotten a picture of Dennis and Donna.
Ok, so now we were ready to pull out but the Suzuki wouldn't start. Bummer! The battery was dead. It seems the key was left in the car overnight in the on position. Dennis quickly jumped us off and before long we were on our way. Thank you Dennis.
Our destination for today was Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. The trip was uneventful and we arrived around 5:00 p.m. We are staying at the fair grounds campground. This is the town that John wanted to stop and visit back in May when we were on our way to Tamarac and the F550 broke down before we got here. We were able to stop and stay this time. John has visited the other town/cities named "Ridgeland" as we travel. There is a Ridgeland, WI 30 miles from here so we drove other tonight to get a picture and find something for dinner.
As we drove around looking for a cafe or restaurant we noticed the town had plenty of bars (3) and that everything else looked closed for the night. We stopped in at the Sportsmen's Bar and Grill. There was only one other customer, a local guy, and the bartender/cook. Very friendly and he sure cooked a great burger. Of course John had on a Ridgeland Fire Department T-Shirt so the conversation was lively.
We will be staying in Chippewa Falls again tomorrow and hope to rest up a little as well as organize some stuff in the RV. Planning on meeting up with Jim and Dee (Tumbleweed) Wednesday for lunch. It has been a little over 3 years since we have seen them.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
