Friday was day 5 of the rally and the last full day before heading for home. A last-minute offer to the R-Podders was to install a keyless door entry for anyone that wanted – for a cost of only $85! (A vendor at the rally was offering installation of a similar product for $279, without labor!) Tink, and a number of other R-Podders, jumped on this offer and hung around the Village to oversee the process and get a lesson in use. I plotted out a few stores in the surrounding area that I wanted to visit and took a little shopping trip and came back with a few accessories that I needed!
I walked from where the Airstream was parked over to the R-Pod Village several times throughout the day to watch the steady progress of tear-down and put-away. Down came the R-Domes and all of the outdoor decorations, and up came the outdoor rugs. By evening it was mostly bare campers and packed up vehicles, ready to hitch up and take off in the morning.
A final meal of thick pork chops and BBQ beef brisket followed by an outdoor evening concert wrapped up the rally.
Tink and I headed back to Van Wert Saturday morning and arrived by noon. The only detail we had not counted on was that Tom was NOT going to be there to help us back those campers in the driveway! That’s OK – we got the job done all by ourselves!
Coming up -- Harrison Lake -- in 5 days!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2018 25' Airstream Serenity with Salsa interior and front twin beds., and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
