Quick round-up of travel ephemera accumulated on the May Road Trip

All of it was amusing, but as always with these things, I keep an eye out for things that resonate with me personally for whatever reason. This post's most resonant content? The brochure on Turkey Run in Indiana. Had a couple of happy visits (one in the frozen winter time) to Turkey Run while doing time in Terre Haute some miles north of there in the early 70's. Indiana has another scooby state park further north yet in Brown County. Aside from those two state parks, though, I'm not sure that Indiana has a whole lot going for it to recommend it to others. I suppose there's always the Brickyard in Indianapolis, where speedy vehicles are coveted (mainly because the fastest car offers the best promise of most quickly exiting the state, I think).

Re: Turkey Run State Park--what an interesting co-inky-dink. I'm always on the lookout for interesting/unusual vintage postcard packets--I think I got that one in an Antique Mall in ABQ. As far as Indiana having major points of interest--just off the top of my head there's the RV Hall of Fame and the National New York Central Railroad Museum in Elkhart. I'm sure there are at least a couple more places worth visiting in the Hoosier State.

We've been to the RV Hall of Fame (of course). An amusing place to visit, for sure. And, wisely enough, it's extremely easy to visit without diverting very far off the beaten path that takes one east-west through Indiana was quickly as possible.

Not super far from the RV HOF is also a giant musical instruments store that boggles the mind with its vast assortment of everything, virtually, known to humankind for making a musical note or a percussive statement.
