Day 5--Montana Owners Club Fall Rally

Elkhart County 4H Fairground
Goshen, IN

I think everyone slept in today after last nights wine, cheese and music party.  Everyone was still talking about how much fun they had today.

We decided it was a good day to do laundry and a little of over an hour, we were finished.  

It meant we missed Jim Fischer's hand signal class, but we attended last year and Jim was such a good teacher we didn't think we'd need a refresher course.  

I put one item out for the garage sale and when I came back found out I sold it.  I walked around the other sites but didn't see anything I couldn't live without.

There was a craft class, work camping/fulltiming roundtable, water softener and Alaska seminars but we didn't attend any.  

The Montana owners have what is called show-N-tell.  You just tie a supplied ribbon on your hitch.  This tells fellow owners that you are invited to see any modifications they have made to their Montana's.  It's amazing some of the ideas that people have come up with.  I had walked over in the next row to give Diesel a dog treat.  Pat and Lynn started talking and they showed my the pull out container they made to hold 40 pounds of dog food.  Everyone has different ideas of where to store things.  It's not all mechanical things.

Before I knew it, I needed to cook my dish for the potluck.  There was plenty to eat and some even had second helpings.  

This is only one section of the pot luck tables.
All these women standing graduated from the Montana driving school.  Keystone supplied brand new coaches and gave the driving lessons to women only.  No men allowed.  There were a lot of proud women receiving their certificates.
Donna Ziegler coordinated the ladies driving school.

Every night tickets are sold with chances to win some great prizes.  Ron Lichtenberg decided to wear a skunk hat.  I guess he thought people would buy more tickets from him.

Personally, I bought my tickets from Charlie Benton because I thought his hat didn't look as stinky.  

Mark and Vicki invited us over for root beer floats--the 5.9 alcohol ones.  Bill and I both decided it has been a very busy day and just wanted to kick back for awhile so I told them we were going home.  

We have a 9 am tour of the customer service department at Keystone and 11:30 is the Keystone plant tour.  After that we leave for the Amish dinner at 4:30. 

I guess I also should say that there is a campfire every night but we don't do that because the smoke bothers Bill.  

Travel Safely........
