Wednesday, May 16, 2018 – Springfield, IL to Elkhart, IN

Left Springfield, IL about 11:30am. Drove 275 miles with a couple of quick stops along the way.

Traffic on the interstate just below Chicago was very crowded.  I made it to the Elkhart Campground in Elkhart, Indiana about 6:45pm eastern time. The time zone changes about 30 minutes west of here.

I am in a nice little pull thru site #61. It is water and electric only and the wifi does not work well. No shocker. It is rare for a campground to have good wifi.

P1100120Unhitched the egg and drove a couple of miles to get something to eat.

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 – On the Road Again

First egg trip of the year.  Of course it has been exceptionally hot the last week or so when I wanted to work on the EggCamper and load it up.  I kept putting it off hoping for cooler weather.  Nope!  Then last night it rained all evening.  Oh well.

So this morning I just threw it all in and took off.  I did not get away until 11:00 and it was 77 degrees when I left then.

I stopped in Liberty at Chick Fil A for my favorite sandwich, made one gas stop and then stopped at Panera Bread just before my campground for the night to pick up a salad to go.  I drove 369 miles today.  I arrived at my campsite at 6:30pm.  It was a lovely 73 degrees.

I am overnighting at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Campground in Springfield, IL.  They have 300 sites here.  Some are on grass and some are just asphalt parking lots.  There are only a few people here so you basically just pull in wherever you want.  $20.00 for the night for electric and water.  My only neighbors are across the parking lot.  No kids, no pets, very quiet.

I spent the evening putting everything away where it belongs.
