Saying Goodbye to our Izzy
This is the part of our trip this year where it was all a blur. After we left Iowa our dog of 15 years was going downhill, and it made traveling more complicated. We tried so hard to keep her comfortable, she still seemed to handle the driving days relatively well; however we cut any of our daytime trips to 2-3 hrs max away from the MH while parked at the campground so we could ensure she was doing okay and not in any distress.Starved Rock Family Campground. It wasn’t over-the-top fabulous, but it was nice. While we were here, we visited Starved Rock State Park and had dinner at the lodge. We took one day and ventured into downtown Utica and had lunch in one of their outdoor restaurant seating areas and enjoyed people-watching. The temperatures here we not too bad but the humidity was UGH! RV Hall of Fame and Museum. If you are ever in the Elkhart area, this is definitely worth the stop. You get to see how far they have come in the RV world.
