Now this is a roadside attraction
(DES MOINES, IOWA)-On the road through the heartland and America has been quite entertaining. Hey, we've gone through Williamsport, Pennsylvania, home of the Little League Hall of Fame. Let's stop there. Nah. Booooring. Oh, Canton, Ohio is just a few miles off of our route. Let's swing down and visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Uh-huh, couple of old footballs in a trophy case. As we swing through Elkhart, Indiana, however, I note the sign announcing Elkhart as the home of the RV Hall of Fame. That's right; Elkhart has a Hall of Fame devoted to RV's! Now, we're talking, baby! Home of he largest RV in the world, the most hours spent on the road by a driver, and my favorite, profiles of some of the greatest owners in RV history. These guys are legends: who will ever break the 7.8 second world record of Emptying the Dump Tank held by "Flushin'" Frank Grabowski of Mesa, Arizona? This guy is the Michael Jordan of the RV world. I just wish he was available for an autograph. I would insist he wash his hands first, though.
