Diners in Montanaville

Today was a reasonably quiet day but we still got a bit of
action packed in.

I spent most of the day locked up working but did have a few excursions.

First our morning walk around Montanaville (the fairgrounds)
We are split into 3 camps...
In the distance is the larger one consisting of over 80 rigs.

Returning to find our rig is easy...
Just look for the Swiss Flag.

If someone asks us why the swiss flag?
"We like Chocolate"

At 3:30 we participated in "meet the tech"
Technicians from Keystone RV visited with all the owners who signed up
and we got to discuss any questions, issues tips etc related to
our rigs and its systems.

For dinner tonight there was a free barbecue at a local RV dealer
but rather than try to fight 200 hungry people for that last chicken wing
we went out for some local flavor.

The south side diner was featured on the Food Networks
Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives last November.
I saw it just before I came up here in December but did not have
the time to stop in for a meal.

Last night Jim & Kristi plus Kate and I made the pilgrimage.
The owner is in the photo below standing on the right.

One of the house specialties is the Philly Cheesesteak
The owner is originally from Philadelphia.
The bread is flown in daily from Philadelphia.

The spiral cut fries are peeled and cut on site.

While not quite as impressive as our dinner in Williamsburg
it was a delicious treat.

After dinner we walked around Goshen's restored downtown
area and chatted with some of the locals including a wine store owner
who makes all the wine that he sells and serves.

Today we have a tour of the Montana Factory at 10am
Then tonight a group is coming over to our trailer for happy hour.

The big Mennonite Relief sale begins tonight as well and runs over the weekend.
It is supposed to be quite a big deal around these parts and should be crowded.
Lots of good food too!

Stand by.
