We had enough of a break in the weather yesterday that we finally got out on the water. It had been a long time since we’ve had the kayak on the water, but even with a heavy cloud cover we quickly decided to go for it. Lake Freeman has been a draw ever since we pulled up to its shore, all we had to do was wait and hope for a day or two so that we could put-in. Lake Freeman is part of the Tippecanoe River system, so it has a current and if there is a wind, you’ve got a double fight once you get into the water. Fortunately, two days before we checkout, the wind dropped to a breeze and the water opened up for a very nice paddle. We were out for about 2 hours and really enjoyed ourselves. The only negative of the paddle was as we were coming back across the lake. We were now fighting the current by crossing it and we were being hit with a stronger wind that kept throwing water at us off of the rising paddles. All and all, we had a great day…
Now the day before that, we decided to go see a movie. The problem with going to a movie here is that the only theater in town (Monticello) is showing Hanna Montana. Well that wasn’t the only “Picture House” around so we drove another 30 miles to East and a much larger town. Logansport is about 3 times larger than Monticello and we knew that we could find a theatre complex for sure. Boy were we surprised… Yep, they have a theatre, and it happens to be the same size as the one in Monticello, and it is showing the same movie….NUTS!!!
Today we also had a chance to say "Hi" to some friends that we haven't seen for a loooonnnngggg time. It was really great to make contact with Paul and Denise and we hope to see both of them soon as we journey further East.
Well tomorrow morning we will find our way to Goshen, Indiana and join with the Holiday Ramblerin Ramblers for our rally...lets hope that I learn a lot during the next week.
