    Ohio

    July 2 in the United States

    Today was a lazy morning which is always nice. Danny and the kids came over to Joe and Carol's house and we drove to where the GoodYear blimp's hanger is, which is all right across from a state park with a playground.

    The kids played for a bit before we went back from lunch. After lunch we went to the local splash pad. It was so hot and was full of kids. It was a very busy day for the lifeguard as there was a kid who got his head smashed with a very deep cut, a little girl almost drowned at the little pond just near by and then lightning was seen so the splash pad had to shut.

    Since Joe and Carol babysit the grandkids twice a week, there were lots of toys and kids stuff around. Inara loved the cute little potty in the bathroom and even had her first pee in the toilet. Very exciting.

    The storm never came that close to us so after dinner we were able to drive down to Akron and we all went to see the Bee Gee' s tribute band at an outdoor area. The rib cook off was also going on just above the lawn/stage area so Joe bought some ribs to try and they melted off the bone into the mouth. We also tried to the local brewery, the Thirsty Dog, which was being sold there.

    The band itself wasn't the best but the night was perfect. The weather was no longer hot and humid and it was a perfect summer night. The kids had a blast running down the hill and playing. We had a great time with Joe, Carol, Danny and his kids for the last 2 days.

    To Ohio

    June 30 in the United States

    We had our last night of camping last night. It was a great little tent, 2 room Bushnell pop up tent, taking Elisa minutes to set up. It's been through wind, snow, rain and very hot days and we had no issues.

    After we packed up, we had about a 7 hour drive to Uniontown, Ohio. This was our last new State. (we are back in NY after this).

    We made it to Carol and joe's house where we had our own little guest area of the house and will be here for 3 nights. Joe and Carol are Elisa's godparents and have known her all her life.

    They also babysit their grandkids so there was tons of new toys for the kids to play with. That night Joe and Carol ordered pizza and we had a relaxing night catching up. The kids felt at ease right away with the awesome grandparents.

    Mercer County Fairgrounds - Celina, OH

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    Last day at Monaco International rally, great brunch then we moved the coach to make sure we could get off the grass after Friday's thunderstorms, quite a few coaches have been stuck and needed a tow. We were fine and we dumped and moved to a gravel site where we filled up with fresh water as we're off to the FMCA convention in Indianapolis tomorrow in a caravan, around 30 coaches all heading off in convoy !!! The fairgrounds have a muscle car show with craft beer and BBQ this afternoon, which was fun to look round.Read more

    Mercer County Fairground - Celina OH

    July 1, 2017 in the United States

    Arrived at the fairground for the Monaco International rally which starts 5th July. Parked on grass which is a bit soft after heavy rains the last couple of days.
    Already met up with Dan & Mary Beth, Pete & Marci and Mike & Babs, who we met at the rally last year. We've been invited to join their group Monaco Travelers who have lots of interesting tours & meals planned for the next few days. So let the fun begin !!Read more

    Grand Lake - Celina, OH

    July 2, 2017 in the United States

    Entertaining dinner at Bella Italian Grill which is on the west side of Grand Lake. History lesson... the world's largest man made lake was finished in 1845, and dug out by hand by Irish and Germans who were paid 30 cents a day plus a jigger of whiskey.
    Outside the restaurant was a circular overspill and some guys were fishing from the bridge using a circular net with weights round the edges, extremely efficient way as one guy was pulling 6-10 good sized fish out each throw !! Yep, the water was green !!Read more

    St Mary's State Fish Hatchery, OH

    July 3, 2017 in the United States

    Monaco Travelers trip to the State Fish Hatchery in St Mary's. Really interesting film on how they collect the eggs by milking fish then fertilise them. Surprised at how much work goes into the process and most get released into state waters when they're around 1 1/2 inches long. They hatch walleye, yellow perch, catfish and saugeye, a hybrid walleye and sauger. In the holding tank below are blue catfish which they get as fry and release when they're around 6 inches.
    Great lunch afterwards at La Carreta, a Mexican restaurant in Celina, check the chairs.

    Its a good day

    August 20, 2017 in the United States

    Tractor pull was cool but we have to go leaving asap to cedar point but let's remember the tractors first. The Classes are super stock, mini, 2 wheel drive ute and more but the tractor I really liked was the alcoholic harvester. The tractors were super loud and people outside yahooing around Jared had to sleep with his ear muffs on and that was adorable. Waking up was amazing but after noon was horrible with clouds all over the sky's from the smoke of the tractors and the guys were nice but drinking way to much it's honestly concerning. That was cool memories flying over my head but time for more memories for the travel was long with 2 toll booths and Aaron hurting Jared's ears, I've had a long day already but shortly it will al turn around hopefully. Cedar point is the best amusement park because it's got lots of roller coasters and a water park right next to. This is really exiting for us and my favourite thing about this trip is this I'm just so excited. Barely containing myself wanting to go I have to wait for stupid traffic,screaming to myself on why I am not sticking my head out the window and yelling hurry up is what I feel like right now. With light house point in sight (our parking spot) bursting my bubble I WANT TO GO!!! 'Groan', see you after cedar point. We are back from point. Running out from the thunderstorm knowing the bolts in this place I'm running. But other than the storm it was a good night stay up till 10:30pm and go on 4 different rides the tiki twirl, chair'o'plane, matter horn and the sky ride. It's #fun:-P Well that's tonight good day... I mean night.Read more

    Lantermans Mill, Mill Creek. Ohio

    December 14, 2016 in the United States

    A visit to this stunning spot in winter is so beautiful, with the snow and ice shows across the park. One fatal mistake was forgetting my gloves in the -6 conditions, got some great photos but unfortunately this app only allows for 10 to be added. Took our shots, then headed back into town for the last of our sunny day before the arctic freeze arrives this evening.Read more

    Breakfast at Mocha House

    December 15, 2016 in the United States

    Finding a good coffee in the US is pretty difficult as they don't have the great coffee culture that Australia has. Most American coffee is filtered or percolated style coffee, so very few places have true baristas that can make a solid espresso style coffee.
    Today is starting to push the limits of acceptance with -13 and wind chill of -26, so even though we look out the cafe window to what appears a beautiful day, stepping outside is sure a wake up call, like walking into a super freezer.
    However it is about to change with serious blizzard snow due within the next couple of hours. Temps will drop to about -28.

    Yankee Kitchen for Breakfast

    December 16, 2016 in the United States

    Met the girls early today, if you call 10:30 early, for breakfast at the famous Yankee Kitchen on Market St.
    Ordered the ham and cheese omelette expecting it to be pretty simple, but we were invaded by cheese yet again. Americans have an infinite love affair with cheese and even our omelettes were dripping in melted cheese, and with the cheese being as sweet as it is we had to sort of eat around the cheese a bit. Service and treatment was really good though, as Sue had ordered sunny side up eggs that had the whites just barely cooked. The lady then just went back and had them remade without question as easy over, so Sue could still dip her toast, even though it was no fault of theirs. Such great service with a huge smile.Read more
