Day 9 - Saturday June 18 2016

Weather: 68 degrees, sunny.  We packed up, ready to leave at 6:00 am.  We all got in the car except Gwen - it was 5:55 am and she thought David was coming back in for 3 remaining bags so she sat on bed and watched TV.  A few minutes later she came out, car was running and we all had our seatbelts on.  She finally came out and said "Were ya'll going to let me know it was time?"  It is good to start the morning with a chuckle.  I drove for the first hour and we stopped in Peru, Indiana at BP/McDonalds on US-31 for fuel and food.  Of course a bus full of kids also stopped there.  Van and humans full, we headed towards Indianapolis.  We soon passed by the old Grissom AFB (now a reserve base) in Bunker Hill/Peru.  Indiana is pretty flat with a lot of farms and agriculture - corn and wheat.  We made it through Indianapolis by 9:30 am and stopped at a Speedway for a bathroom break.  I felt pretty and used the Women's restroom (actually the Men's was Out of Order).  We changed drivers and picked up I-65 south towards Louisville. We stopped in Bowling Green for lunch at Cracker Barrel, filled up with gas.  David turned in wrong lot and had to go around to get to gas station (we nicknamed him Go-Round Coulson on this trip, especially because of the number of times he had to go-round Notre Dame to find the Basilica).  I found some signs along the way - who knew there was a Shelbyville and Franklin in Indiana and I thought Kokomo was in the Keys.  I also took a pic of a support structure for a simple overpass - never saw one of those either.  We got home around 3:00 pm, tired but blessed for a fun and safe trip.
