The World's Biggest Bat! Louisville Slugger Museum and factory.

Driving thru Old Louisville is like taking a step back to the...

Unfortunately no race today! We did get to take a Historic walking...

We found the BEST porkchops and steaks in this butcher shop in...

We took one day to see the sights of Louisville. First we watched hardwood bats being made at the Louisville Slugger factory. They make about 75% of the bats for the pros, which are made to each player's specifications and personalized. The museum went back to the history of baseball and the early bats used. There was quite a collection of baseballs signed by the different US Presidents.

Around the corner from the bat factory, we found Glassworks. We went in and watched the glass blowers make their exquisite creations. There is also a room where they will teach you to make your own creation.

Of course we had to stop at Churchill Downs and tour the park. The Kentucky Derby Museum was interesting, too. It seemed to capture the pride, tradition, and excitement of "the greatest two minutes in sports", the Kentucky Derby!

We have been missing most of the severe storms, but this afternoon the sky opened up and dumped nearly 2 inches of rain on us in less than 2 hours along with thunder and lightning. Now it's clear skies again. We will be here at Indian Lakes Thousand Trails in Batesville, Indiana (about 20 miles west of Cincinatti, OH) for 2 weeks before going into Illinois for the CAT Rally. It's a real nice park with a golf course and a great place to ride our bicycles.
