It was past 6 pm, before we pulled into Jim and Donnaís place about 3 miles north of Montpilier. This was a great stop with terrific hosts. The beer and the food were great, the fishing was really good and the company was terrific. We were invited to stick around for a while, so the lads and I took a day off, It doesnít get much better then this.
Getting on the road again after the day off was also a plus. It provides an opportunity to recover from the festive atmosphere (it takes longer then it used to).
I plan on passing to the west of Ft. Wayne, then going up state route 5 to Shipshewana. It looks like good weather for driving a team down the road (of course, I also say that same thing in most any kind of weather.)
