Harry and Judy's RV Trip

Day 42-August 16, 2014-To Columbus, OH and another tire incident

Sunny, almost 80 ‘til about 4PM, then sprinkles and cooler

Drove 90 miles in 2-1/4 hour.

Drove on route 4 most of the way through farmlands outside of small towns like Attica, Chatfield and Bucyrus where there was a street fair going on and we got detoured a bit.

Pulled into Alum Creek State Park too early to check in so we went to the park office and ate lunch in the RV.  A couple pulled up alongside us and said they had been following us and there was a bubble in a tire.  We looked, couldn’t see anything but there was a Discount Tire 10 miles away, we were still too early to check in and better safe than sorry.  Discount Tire checked it out, said it was distorted and replaced it.  Glad we bought the tire protection last year.  We’ve already gotten three new tires for free to replace blown ones.

Got back to the campground, checked in, drove to our site and found somebody in it.  Didn’t look like they were leaving soon, either, they had a food shelter erected and a clothesline full of clothes.  At a time like this I’m really glad we have cell service.  I called the check in office, they told me what sites were available and we picked another one not far from the first one.  They said their records showed the original one empty and they’d have an officer check it out.  That should be a real show, hope we’re around to see it.

Campground is in Delaware, OH, a suburb of Columbus.  Very woodsy and secluded, but it’s really full.  It’s on a lake, has a marina, boat storage, sandy beach, hiking trails and activities.  The sites only have electric, I thought it had electric and water when I reserved but we should be OK with the water we have  in the tanks.  There’s showers not far away if we run out and need them.  Sprinkling quite a bit by the time we settled in so we decided to read.  I’ve got two books going at once and one we’re listening to on tape in the truck so I’ve got an assortment of characters to try and keep straight.

I’ve been enjoying reading signs in front of churches along the way.  A sample of today:

  Had a tough week?  We’re open Sunday.

  Swallowing pride never gives indigestion.

 Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

 This church is prayer conditioned.
