The Adventure: Day 4

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Today was pretty low key. Mostly.

We did move hotels. Which involved moving the trailer. Which meant Dave and Carrie were alone for the first time and solely responsible for hooking up, driving, and IMG_2212unhooking the trailer from the truck.

We did it!

We’re alive. The trailer and the truck are unscratched and unscathed. Whew!

Those miniature people are us!

We requested a late check-out at the first hotel. I have to give a shout out to the Indianapolis Holiday Inn Express Airport West, on Rockville Road. The staff there are incredible! Devonesha at the front desk and Julia: Wonderful! Kevin and Robert: Amazing! Gayla in the breakfast room: super sweet and so helpful! We hated saying goodbye to them, but we needed to be closer to our venue for next week.

So just before 2:00 we loaded up our luggage, attached the trailer to the truck, and pulled out. There were some prayers sent heavenward–not gonna lie–but we made it safely to the new hotel.

We had just enough time to check in, unhook, (and I took a quick shower because–OMWord!!–have I mentioned the humidity??), and headed out to meet long-time friends from Fresno who relocated to Indianapolis, for dinner. (I no longer refer to anyone as an “old” friend. You’re welcome.)

IMG_2216We had dinner at Bub’s, in Carmel. It was yummy! Dave had an elk burger, while I opted for the familiar, though some would say boring, beef. After dinner we went to Lyndel and Carrie’s home to visit some more. We got to hug their daughter and see two of their grandchildren.

We’re back at the new hotel now and have settled in for the evening.

I think tomorrow’s plan is to figure out our new location and I will do some of my paying work. We hope to find out a firm schedule soon. We know we’re going to be at the Indianapolis Colts Training Camp, but there may be other events before and/or after.

Thanks for reading!

  1. After this you will be so fit and in shape…..ready to do American Ninja (grandboys love watching the episodes). The trailor looks huge. What a lot of work.
    We have always chosen Holiday Express and found the service quite exceptional.

  2. It sounds like you are doing great. Pretty soon you will even forget the trailer is behind you ! It looks like you have plenty of Towing power and that’s what counts. Happy travels!
