We didn't have an appointment for service, didn't really need anything done, just some questions about a few things. They were very good about talking with us and giving us the materials to address some of our issues so we could fix them ourselves.
I won't bore you with all the pictures I took during the tour but here are a few:
The factory starts cranking at 6am so there isn't any sleeping in going on here.
We met some nice folks while we were here and got some good information. That's what is so cool about talking with new folks and it is a small world. We met Paul McClellan who was here for service and he mentioned a couple by the name of Dave & Maxine English...hey I know those folks, we camped next to them in Pigeon Forge, TN at the RV Dreams Rally. Paul was very nice to us and a well of information. Mark noticed these blocks he had made for the jacks.
Mark made us a set and they are great making set up quicker, Thanks Paul for the idea.
Paul was kind enough to take us with him when he went to Shipshewana which is a nice town about 15 miles away. It appears to be an upscale Amish/Mennonite area with several businesses run by them. He gave us a tour of where to eat and what to see. We ate lunch at Wana Cup being several by young Amish girls, the food was tasty.
We went back to Shipshewana the next day and wandered around the delightful town. It is abit touristy but very nice. Horse and buggies where everywhere.
There is lots of shopping through out the town making it a nice day trip. One of the parking areas had this windmill which pumped water into a trough for the horses next to the hitching post and later someone scooped up the poop making it available to who ever wanted it. I like free but passed on this.
After checking out the town on foot we ate at The Blue Gate Restaurant & Bakery which Paul recommended. It was a beautiful place with wonderful landscaping, the flowers were just gorgeous and the food was wholesome home cooking. Thanks again Paul we had a great time and I suggest checking it out if you are in the area.
If I still owned sticks and bricks I would have this in my front yard.
Carriage rides are available
We made our way back to the caravan and visited with some of our neighbors.
Home is where the caravan is parked.
