Day 5 on trip to Ottawa

We were able to get through Indiana today and into Michigan. Luckily I had plenty of fuel when we started this morning. I usually fuel up at large truck stops as its much easier going through the big diesel fuel pump area. Today after pulling in at the fuel pump and going into the store to prepay I was told that only tax exempt commercial trucks could get fuel at the truck fueling pumps. I was told I would have to pull around to where the cars got fuel. After looking at the small parking area where the cars were fueling I knew I'd have trouble getting in and out of the area with a big motorhome towing a Jeep. This happened at two different fuel stations and I was told it had to do with State of Indiana regulatons. As I said, fortunately we had enough fuel to get into Michigan.
Just before leaving Indiana we thought we'd stay at a State Park but after driving though the park's narrow roads we decided that our motorhome was too big to stay at a park that was built in 1924 that has campsites more suited for a Model T and a tent.
