Where are we today ?
clic on a pic to enlarge it
        Was a cold night last night and we had some snow but the major wind eventually died down, after it rocked us to sleep. We did have a wonderful sunset last night though so that will be my first picture of the day.
even in a Flying J we get amazing sunsets
a bit of snow here
hmm thats me shadow looking at the snow,
what the heck !
Time to get outta here
       Morning walkabouts the Flying J after coffees and computing taking our time no rush but hit the road about 9 am. Great travel day east on I-70 then north on I-75, very little traffic even on I-75 arrived in Wapakoneta shortly after 11 am. And no winds today, huge bonus!
nice quiet roads this morning
cool water tower, kinda blurry though
          Set up on our site (they have winter water here, nice). Temps in the mid 50'f and sunny. But a cool west breeze. We plan on staying here 2 nights, just cause we can and only $10. a night for us with FHU's. nice pool and spa too will indulge in tomorrow probably.
nice and sunny here
        After lunch I whipped into town for a few supplies then back home to adjust our problem rear compartment. It was not locking shut easy fix so all is good.  Few walkabouts the resort enjoying the sunshine. Read a bit then whip up supper.
office and pool area
love the pool gonna get there tomorrow I hope
a great family resort, would be very
busy in the summer
         Tonight a tasty pork tenderloin baked in the oven,(only here for 2 nights, windy and cooler so no need to set up our Weber Q, as much as I would like to), a fresh salad as usual and some tasty asparagus, (with olive oil, sea salt a fresh ground pepper) nuked in the microwave about a minute , tasty and still crunchy. Just the way we like it !
worked out pretty good in the oven,'but would be
much  better on our Weber Q
         Supper was awesome and more leftovers that we will make good use of. Now to relax a bit more enjoy the evening together. Does life get much better? Think not!
119 miles today
         Glad that y'all stopped by again, al is going well here and just taking it easy the way we like. Watching the weather to see how it goes.

  1. Nice day for you finally! How did you find a $10 spot in Wapa? $50+ at KOA :( I'm sure you've done Armstrong on a previous visit, but if you are into Annie Oakley she grew up in Greenville and the Garst has a great display. ENJOY!

    1. Wonderful, day yes.,the KOA is just down the road from us, this is another membership park for us ( one of about 200) , Coast to Coast that we can stay at for $10.00 a night. Have done Armstrong and the bicycle museum, maybe Annie Oakley another time.

  9. Which way are you heading home by? Looking at the map you have four options. Make certain to top off your gas before crossing back to Canada.
    Still a few more cool days ahead but hoping you enjoy your time.
    be Safe!

    It's about time.

  12. Snow? Maybe you should turn around and head back down here to Texas. Here in Cut & Shoot, TX it is sunny and will hit 80 degrees today. Cool nights and warm days, a great combination. And, you always make me hungry with your food pics. Yum, Yum.

  14. I think we are going back to Ontario a little to soon. We came up I75 just after lunch today. We are staying with our daughter and family in Lima until next Monday. I thought I was going to get away with out having to winterize the coach this spring but I just finished blowing out the water lines. We are staying with the family in there home and no power where we leave the coach.

    1. We be passing by Lima in the morning will wave at ya.
      Yep it is a little soon, but we are living in our coach, just need to run the furnace a bit to keep things from freezing. heated tank, have done this before.
      Next week weather looks much better we should be just fine.
      Travel safe and enjoy your visit.

  15. Went out and checked the coach this morning. Some jugs of water I have in one of the storage bays were not frozen at all so it may been OK. Back to Waterloo Monday. Warm it up PLEASE!
