So the mpg stayed high, not quite as impressive as the other day, but anytime I can shortchange an Arab Oil Tycoon, I'm happy.
312 miles down today and a night in a Passport America campground. $16.50 (cash). Cute little town of Corydon, Indiana, with quaint old streets and stores. Their claim to fame is they are the location of the only Civil War battle fought in the entire state. I guess they figured out one was enough.
We pulled in around 4 pm (CT), which gave us a chance to dump the tanks, take on fresh water, have a nice dinner and most importantly, get the satellite TV locked on so Marti could get her American Idol fix. A happy wife = a happy life. ;c)
We did receive a bit of distressing news from our son Ryan tonight. Our granddaughter Taylor has ruptured her ear drum. It is severe enough that she might need surgery to repair it. The doctor told them to contact an ENT specialist right away. The rub is along with a brand new baby, they are moving cross country to Ryan's new assignment on May 31st. So they are under some pretty heavy pressure. We'd appreciate prayers and positive thoughts that everything will work out well.
Tomorrow, onward towards South Carolina. We're thinking of stopping tomorrow night at the Raccoon Valley Escappees campground in Knoxville, TN. That puts us in striking distance of a short day's drive to finish our trip.
