Van Wert, Ohio and a Rally

We decided last minute to go to the Fleetwood National Rally held in Decatur, Indiana.  It was held at the Bellmont High School.   We couldn’t stay there since they were booked up.  It was all dry camping and it was going to be warm so that didn’t appeal to us anyway.  No sweating for me.  We stayed in Van Wert, Ohio.  It was called Van Wert County Fairgrounds and we had full hookups and it was only about 18 miles from Decatur.   The neat thing is the campground is right next to the track where they have harness racing.  Every morning someone would be out on the track running horses.  They were also having their Peony Festival that weekend also.

20150604_084058~2Rally kick-off.  Would we attend another one?  Not sure.  We will have to think about it.  Some things were really good.  The kick-off with the service members, the food.  Some things were not so good but we won’t go into that.

Karaoke night at the rally.   Ralph has never met a microphone that he didn’t like.
