Shipshewana and Spartan

We got up Tuesday morning, and headed to the flea market at Shipshewana.  We parked the Bus where we had planned, and took the car to the market. 

The market was large, but not the amount of Amish stuff that I expected. It was also very hot and humid.  After a couple of hours, we decided to get on the road to Charlotte, MI for our appointment at the Spartan factory to get some maintenance done on the Bus.

Here are a couple of pictures from Shipshewana, including some of the “stretched” buggies that we saw:

The drive to Charlotte was pleasant.  Some in the back roads and the last hour and a half on I-69.  We found the Spartan factory service center, checked in with our list, and got  parked in their small ‘campground’ area.  There are two other Bus’ here, and the rest are Newmars.  Here are a few pictures:

As you can see, they had a few firetruck chassis’ ready to ship to the outfitters.

We washed the bugs off the front of our Bus, and settled in for the evening.  They are coming for the Bus at 7:15am (6:15am central time!!!) in the morning, and it has been a long time since I have been up that early!!
