Alliance Ohio to Indianapolis Indiana and run into friends at a Flying J

Where are we today ?
         We had a good nights sleep last night, taking it easy this morning, coffees and computing then said thanks to Janice and Laurie as they headed out to work at 7:40 this morning. No rush, we like to wait until 9 am, turn the coach around and hook up the car, miss the morning traffic.
actually had to scrap the ice from the car windows
 this morning
         Another great travel day and a fairly long one for us 325 miles 6 hours just cruising along. Like to stop at most the rest areas for a few minutes stretch our legs. Made lunch at one about noon.
325 miles 6 hours
leaving Ohio
welcome to Indiana
          We arrived at the Flying J on the south west side of Indianapolis about 3:30pm fueled up our coach and secured a nice RV parking spot for the night. Against the grassy area and are able to open our slide. Think this has to be one of the nicest Flying J's we have parked at for the night.
           Oh and gas for our coach here was $3.06 a gallon = .81 cents a litre. Compared to about $1.25 a litre in Ontario right now.  Put in 44 US gallons= 166 litres.We saving more money about $73.00 we saved on this fill up alone. We have to spend some to save some but sure is nice to make this winters travels much less expensive.
nice quiet spot for the night
         As we were getting ready for supper, noticed this 5th wheel pull in, looked familiar. They turned their trailer around and drove by again! Hmm, Rob and Debbie that were members at Rock Glen resort in Ontario and we have not seen them for over two years. So out we go to say hi and the other coach parked right behind us was friends of theirs from Alberta Canada that we saw in pull into Rock Glen Resort a day before we left there three weeks ago. Now is this a small world or what? Meeting at a Flying J parking lot in Indiana.
Rob, Debbie, Cara, Bryan and Suzie
there we are three in a row
          So we chatted and chatted but then time to eat so headed on home and whipped a tasty meal for us. Suzie's leftover fettuccine alfredo with shrimp and scallops and some of my prime rib from sunday. Added a tossed salad, broccoli and a fresh bun really hit the spot.
         That was it for another fun travel day, stop early relax have a tasty supper, blog a bit and watch the tube for a few minutes, sure do love this lifestyle.
         Thanks once again for stopping on by, hope you had an awesome day too!
this be our plan for tomorrow
