      We are riding out to Evansville, IN on the 22nd, then get up to tour LST-325 on the 23rd and ride to Corydon that afternoon.

      If you have any suggestions for camping or a place to stay near Evansville I’m all ears.

      Thanks Pops !

      I’ll pass that along. A little encouragement ( and a few bucks in the Tip Jar) goes a long ways.

      CYa Soon!

      After getting Pops message I found the local Scout Leader and the Boy Scouts will be doing a Bike Wash at the Fairgrounds during the Fish Fry Supper.

      Thanks Pops for mentioning this, I passed along your appreciation to the Scouts.

      VAFISH,  Sorry for the delayed response. I wanted to talk to a friend that knows the camping around Southern Indiana pretty well before I responded.

      If you are wanting to stay close to Evansville, slip south across the Ohio River on Hwy 41 through Henderson Ky to John James Audubon State Park.

      Part of the way to Corydon from Evansville, right off I-64 is Yellow Banks Recreation Center. It gets great reviews.

      A little farther east towards Corydon, just south of I-64 in Perry County Indiana are (2) really nice Lake Campgrounds, Indian-Celina Recreation Area and Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area. Both are really nice.

      Hope this helps.

      The Fish Fry is one of my most fond memories from my FNG run.  Thanks for working so hard to make the Run a success.

      Sloke,

      Thanks for your comment. Look forward to meeting you on RFTW-2017.

      I have the best position with RFTW of anybody. I have a great State Coordinator, OZ to keep me straight and the Corydon / Harrison County community has a number of people that work so hard to show their appreciation to our Veterans.

      When we give out the awards at the Fish Fry, please give the people and groups recognized a round of applause.

      Laundry Service Available at Corydon Overnight

      Recenty “Bones” asked about the possibility of the Coin Laundry by the Motels staying open later than normal so the Riders could do some laundry. I spoke with the Operator and she is very willing to stay open and said she would remain there as late as needed if one of us was there doing Laundry.

      Beyond this, she mentioned that they have “Drop Off” service and if any Riders want to drop some laundry they will process it for $1.00/pound. She said there are some up-charges for Hanging or Folding, etc. I asked her if somebody dropped of a dozen separate batches from Riders, could they pick them up later that evening after supper and she said “absolutely”.

      Let me know if you would be interested in Laundry Services.

      CYa soon!
