    Newbie Question

    First let me say thank you for all the great info contained on this site. It has been very helpful.

    My question is this I would like to go to Lima but due to previous commitments I could only come for Friday and Saturday. Will I be able to find a spot to camp for Friday night?

    A small introduction, I am 29 and live in Indianapolis. This is my first BMW and I love it. Unfortunately my wife will no longer ride with me due to being rear ended by a cage at a stop sign last year. Everybody is fine (the gear works) and Revard got the bike shining like new by October before they closed. Anyway anybody who wants to go riding in Central Indiana this Spring, let me know.

    Yes. You might not get the most PRIMO spot, but there will space for your tent..... See you in Beemerville!

    Sometimes it's the bend in the road that makes life worth the ride.

    I honestly believe you could set up 7,000 tents on the grounds and not have a bad spot!! Plenty of grass and trees or open skys if you desire! It's a large site.

    Only lived in IN a few years

    Unfortunately I have never been on US 24, based on my map it looks like sections of it are 4 lane. I have been through the area typically going North or South on many different roads.

    Northern Indiana tends to be rather flat with few turns and many cornfields for miles. I am told by many of my Hoosier friends that it is beautiful, I think its just a taste I haven't completely acquired yet. There some interesting little towns to go through though.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    US 24 info?

    Stephanie and I used 24 on our way to Colorado from MI last summer. It was in excellent condition. I recommend it. 2 lane most of the way. I suppose it depends on time of day but we did not see any heavy traffic. I would use it again. You can certainly use it to link with the expressway around Toledo, OH if you wish, but there might be more attractive alternatives on the southbound leg if time permits.
