Today we are flying to Frankfort, KY. Up early to have breakfast at hotel then got shuttle service to the airport. We are flying American from Phoenix to Dallas/Fort Worth then to Louisville, KY arriving around 8:30 tonite. Susan’s daughter is picking us up at the airport in Louisville but it will take another hour to get to Susan’s house in Frankfort so probably won’t be there til 11pm tonite. Tomorrow is rest day.

May 24, 2019 - Kentucky Bourbon Country

We’re now heading north and this morning we entered Kentucky. It’s always so beautiful here with all the gorgeous blue grass. We stopped at a rest stop and the views of the Kentucky blue grass on the properties nearby were so welcoming to the state. Since we were near a Speedco right as we entered Kentucky and we had a relatively short drive today, we stopped to have the oil in the RV changed. Speedco is a great place for trucks and RV's. You just get in line and get the oil changed quickly. We were fortunate that there was no line...

Aug 29, 2017 - Camp Carlson - Ft Knox -Louisville,KY Aug 24-29, 2017

The journey from Henderson, KY to Louisville, KY was short - about 2.5 hours – green fields all the way. Rio the Cat should have been appreciative for the short ride but once we got here I decided to vacuum and that is a total terror for him. Nights have been cool here and day temp in the low 80s. We were her for six nights. Rio the cat was happy and we were very comfortable. Longer stops are better for us. We are actually staying at Camp Carlson, which is the recreation area for Fort Knox. Tom was hoping to be able to audit the depository...

Aug 18, 2017 - Changing Scenery

From the rugged Appalachian mountains we moved west through the rolling hills of Kentucky. We arrived outside Louisville on Friday. Settlers reaching here found the Ohio River that opened the mid-west to European-American settlement. Remember, at that time the French controlled New Orleans, restricting access to the Mississippi River. More relevant to our trip, we found Ghyll and Vito Simoneschi, friends from Parkway Church on Long Island. Familiar faces, familiar stories, updates on grandchildren and life. They were God's presence for...

Aug 6, 2017 - Back Home

We got back to Louisville around 7:30 Saturday 2 hours later than expected. Our plane was late getting into Sanford/Orlando. We always fly in and out of there because it's cheaper and just a hour drive to Daytona. After taking Tammy and Cassidy home we didn't get home tell after 9pm. We both had a craving for McDonald's so we did a drive thru and took it home to eat. Today was Homecoming at Salem Baptist Church and it was a pretty big crowd. The pot luck dinner afterwards was really good. Our neighbor Sherry left Saturday heading to the...

Don't wake me up

Aug 11, 2016 - Louisville Day 2

Wednesday, Aug. 10, was another full day of touring. We drove east in the car and made a quick stops at Wild Turkey, Four Roses, and Woodford Reserve to get my Bourbon Trail passport stamped and completed. The guy at Woodford said I can now send the passport in and get "the most expensive free t-shirt you'll ever get". He's right of course. We had 1:00PM tour tickets at WinStar, a thoroughbred horse breeding farm. We were very lucky to be at the stud barn when owner Kenny Troutt showed up. He spent quite a while with our group telling...

East Coast Bound!

Aug 10, 2016 - Louisville Day 1

The Aire is parked at Add-More RV Park in Clarksville, IN just across the Ohio River from Louisville, KY. Pull thru with 50AMP FHU. Tuesday was a busy day in Louisville. First off we toured Locust Grove—Home of Lucy and William Croghan, sister and brother-in-law to George Rogers Clark. Clark served in the Revolutionary War and was very instrumental in defeating the British in the Northwest Territory. Not the Northwest Territory we usually think of—like Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. This Northwest Territory was Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio,...

East Coast Bound!

May 2, 2016 - Wichita, KS to Georgetown, IN

5-2-15 Wichita to Georgetown, IN A warm 54 degrees and clouds greeted the morning as I started looking for coffee. Was on the road by 8:20AM. The driving conditions were good in spite of the low overcast most of the day. It sprinkled a time or two, but no real difficulties. Drove on I-35 to Kansas City then picked up I-70 E in St Louis, MO. From St Louis I got on I-64 and drove through Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana stopping for the night at a Red Roof Inn in Georgetown, IN, just outside Louisville, KY. Was a long day. Drove 712 miles in...

Dec 29, 2015 - Setting Out for Florida

I was "not happy" to see that our neighbor had parked one of his vehicles in front of our fifth wheel. Fortunately, the keys were available and I moved it. We had about three inches of ice/slush on the ground but Joe pulled out just fine. We took the tollway to I65 and headed south past innumerable flooded farm fields. After a sub sandwich on the road, we continued to Louisville, KY and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. We had dinner (burrito, pork chops) at the Tumbleweed (underwhelming) because it was withing walking distance.

Sep 12, 2015 - Louisville, KY

Today is going to be low key. We left for a drive just to se some of the outlying areas. Our first stops were two quilt shops. Their rows were great. We were able to buy a kit at one even though they were not suppose to. We then found our way to River Road that had been recommended by a couple at the RV Park. It was a pleasant drive with lots of trees and beautiful homes along the Ohio River. We came across a big tower that was part of the old City Water Works. We went through the museum but everything, I believe, was more understandable...

Sep 11, 2015 - Days 30-32 Louisville, Kentucky

September 9, 2015 Day 30 Cave City, KY to Louisville, KY Today is a driving day to Louisville. A few days ago, we researched places to stay for Louisville and Lexington. There weren’t many choices for either. We plan to stay 4 nights in Louisville and 6 nights in Lexington. In Louisville, the choices were KOA Metro, KOA South, Grandma’s, the Flea Market and the Kentucky Exposition Center. The Flea Market, a parking lot with 20 amps= ruled out. Kentucky Exposition Center, also a parking lot with 50 amps but $50/night plus one time $8 parking...

Sep 11, 2015 - Louisville ,KY

Today we are going to the Louisville Slugger Museum, Cathedral of the Assumption then out to lunch at the Bristol Bar and Grill. It has been very convenient staying at this KOA as it is only about 5 miles from downtown Louisville where we will be spending the day. The weather is beginning to get cooler and a cold front is coming in. Louisville Slugger was an interesting tour. It is amazing how fast they can make a bat. When the company was started in the beginning they made butter churns. The son of the owner was interested in baseball so...
