Day 10 – Indiana, Hill and Dale

 

DAY 10 OF YEAR LONG ROAD TRIP FOLLOWING SCENIC BYWAYS IN THE USA

If I had a redo day, this would be it.  I’m not going to complain since Scout is doing well, and I’m unemployed and homeless, but I have to say all my mishaps resulted in a frustrating day.  I began the morning in the park where I camped last night.  The park is almost 16,000 acres and the largest in Indiana.  It had three separate entrances…the southern one was specifically for horse campers.  The entrance I came through had a covered bridge.  I drove for miles within the park.  It was quite nice.  Continue reading “Day 10 – Indiana, Hill and Dale”
