(One more post about my road trip on Lincoln Highway last July). Monday, July 4th - We continued on US 33, still in Indiana, after Goshen onto Ligonier, Kimmell, Wolf Lake, Merriam, then stopped for gas in Churubusco (say it three times real fast), passed thru Fort Wayne, New Haven and an almost ghost town of Zulu before entered into Ohio on US 30.
Van Wert was the first town in Ohio after we crossed the state line from Indiana. We did not stop and walk around town in Delphos so we could not tell you whether the town which bills itself as "America's Friendliest City" lived up to its reputation. I am sure it is very friendly. We will make every effort to find out next time we are in Delphos, Ohio.
It was July 4th weekend and most of the fireworks tents had good business, judging from all the vehicles in the parking lot.
After taking a few photos at the Van-Del Drive-In Theater located between Van Wert and Delphos, we got on Interstate 75 heading north toward Detroit, Michigan. We spent the night at my brother-in-law's home in Royal Oaks. It was good seeing J and his wife, B. They were busy preparing for their 2nd daughter's wedding in mid-September. Just listening to all the plannings and the cost involved, we did not feel too bad that we were not blessed with children of our own. Even if we were able to have children, we probably would spend their inheritance anyway!
