April 15, 2009 On the Road in Anderson, IN

We FINALLY got moving. It was raining with a cold breeze as we left, cleared up and, as we approached the Indiana border the clouds followed by the rain returned. But, you know what? It's fine because we are in our Montana and "On the road again." We are at the Timberline Campground in Anderson, IN. It was raining lightly when we arrived but we set up and, since this was the first trip of the season, had to see if the new surge protector worked before plugging Monty into the power box. Then the RV antifreeze had to be cleaned from the water pipes before using. The hot water heater is emptied before the antifreeze is added so had to be reconnected to the water lines before being turned on. I've done this many times with various RVs throughout the years but seemed to forget EVERYTHING as this process was being accomplished. Even forgot to turn the TV antenna booster on and so wondered why the reception was so poor even though we are just outside of Indianapolis. Getting older is very nice but is sure is not easy, by any stretch of the imagination. Neither of us wanted to do anything after finally getting it mostly set up so will stay in and hope to stay awake long enough to see the results show on American Idol. We are going to stay here probably two nights so that we are not rushed and then on to the St. Louis area. My sister told us of a great ice cream parlor in St. Louis that, of course, we just must try. Gotta go up in The Arch, too. So much to do - so little time!
