            Another wonderful sleep last night, very quiet here at the Flying J in the rv spaces. As usual up early and after breaky once the sun came up, I wandered about the Flying J checking out the busy store and all trucks coming and going.  Over there where they fuel and park.
         Secured the coach and on the road by 8:30 this morning, letting Suzie sleep in today. Either that or I could head on down the road and let her sleep some more. Before we left I picked up 2 French Vanilla Cappuccinos and swiping our Good Sam loyalty card we got one FREE. Love free. Last time we got 2 free. This card pays off, discounts for fuel and even food. Rv fuel lanes and free overnight parking as well
Ohio here we are
trucks busy feeling here at the Flying J
I-70 eastbound after the sun is higher in the sky
Suzie my Navigator, reading for a while
         By 9:30 this morning we pulled into Gander Mountain by Dayton Ohio, to buy me a new vest. Have been looking all winter for a new one and knew we could find one here. Love these stores but none out west.
love these stores but can find them only in certain areas
nice new vest finally 
          Moving along I70 from Indiana to Ohio a very nice drive. Sunny, warm and no wind a perfect driving day again.
Welcome to Ohio
Leaving Dayton I-75 north only another hour to go
     We pulled into our campground In  Wapakoneta, a membership one,  Coast to Coast only $10. a night with full hookups, free wifi at the clubhouse and an amazing indoor pool and spa.We will hang out here for a few days enjoying this luxury before crossing the border back to Canada . Really love it here and the weather amazing for the next few days as well. Sunny and about 70 f (21 C) yup we can handle that.
clubhouse
the creek is flowing nicely
we have a nice large site too
      While we were reading outside this afternoon Suzie looked a few sites down and said to me . ("Is that a pig?). So I wandered on over to check it out . And sure enough it is a miniature pig (not a pot belly) Only 8 months old, maximum weight 35 pounds. So cool, so cute and they are in the process of training him.
       We chatted with this supper couple and their son for  quite a while then went home to get some quality reading time done in the nice warm afternoon sun, shorts needed, before whipping up supper.
Meet Corky
        Suzie came over to meet him and got a Piggy fix. No doggie fix today and he really loves him tummy rubbed . Just laid right down and snorted just like a pig.  Even when you pick him up he squeals just like pig.
piggy fix for Suzie,
loves his belly rubbed
give him treats and he goes in circles,
too cool
    We have a very nice large campsite and most people here for the weekend, so by tomorrow night will be much quieter. Not that it is noisy anyway, just less people.
from the back of our site
clubhouse and pool right behind us
         Saw this rig below pulling in across from us trying to fit on a site, he is 75 feet long, oops. did not work they looking for another one.
perfect blue sunny skies all day long
gotta love it
         Eventually time to whip up supper.  Tonight a small pork loin roast on our Weber Q 100 added to our salad.
done to perfection about 40 minutes on low
crispy on the outside moist and juicy inside
added some applesauce and sauerkraut
sure was wonderful
    Now we had a wonderful relaxing short travel day, Got a new vest, piggy fix, very warm sunny day and a tasty supper. What more can we ask for?
    Thanks for stooping by for a visit and hope y'all had a great day as well.

  1. I don't think I would ever recognize you without a vest and hat on. Hope there isn't any snow in Canada when you arrive.

  6. You sure make good use of your memberships. Hopefully the snowy weather has moved out for the season now that you are back in the North.

    1. We have the memberships and like to use them over 700 parks to choose from from free camping, to 9-10 dollers a night up to 1/2 price sure beats paying full price.

  8. We prefer the shorter travel days. Looks like a wonderful place to spend your last couple of days before heading back into Ontario. Though, having read your blog for a while, you stay in some pretty great places in Ontario. Enjoy the sunshine.
    P.S. Congratulations on the purchase of the new vest.

    1. This is a wonderful place to spend our last few days here in the States. Enjoying this warm weather. Yes we do have some nice places to stay in Ontario as well.
      My older vests are wearing out, they don't last forever when I wear one every day.

  9. We really like some of the membership campgrounds. Some are nice and others not so nice. We also really like staying at the Elks especially when we have paces in a town we want to see. Travel safe.

    1. Tis some campgrounds are nicer than others, but for full hookups for the price we are still in our own home.

    1. No that was not Corky, a distant cousin maybe.
      We never know for sure what the weather will be, but the later in the season the better.
      You guys take care and travel safe.

  16. In joy that nice weather while you can. When we were still C2C Members we started at that Park on Night on our way home in the spring. In the morning we hooked up and someone from ON was also getting ready to go back as well. He was in shorts and we got home I could not into our storage spot because we a ft of snow and I pulled into a parking lot and got stuck. Thankfully a large truck pulled me out on to the street. I sure hoped the man in the shorts got back OK.

    Safe travels back it has been nice and warm in Waterloo recently.
