Aug 16, 2017 - Goin' South to Clarksville, Indiana

We headed through the countryside to I-69 and then took that through Indianapolis and got on I-65 for our trip south. We had reservations for two nights in Clarksville which is just across the river from Louisville, KY. We intended to do some sightseeing in Louisville. On our way we found out that a site had come available at the campground where our camping group was going for their August outing and got that reservation. We then cancelled our reservations at Smyrna, Tennessee where we had planned to go to watch the solar eclipse. When we...

Canadian Trip

Jan 11, 2015 - Memphis TN

After a very good night’s sleep we got underway at 8:00 am Eastern Standard Time. The only construction area I knew about on this route was going thru Louisville and we drove thru with no issues, we timed that right. I have this route down pretty good, know where the Flying J travel centers are and stop at the same 2 each time. We arrived at Graceland at 2:30 pm Central Standard Time, it is always nice to gain the extra hour coming down here. Now was the time to see that I winterized the motorhome correct again, well I did. Hooked up all...

2015 Westward Ho

Dec 28, 2014 - a blessedly boring day

We haven't covered much ground today. We left in a leisurely sort of way; when we set the alarm and run we inevitably forget something important. The roads on the drive to the tollway were almost empty. All the good Christians were still in church. Lake Michigan is a huge barrier between those from the Midwest and those from the East and the traffic can be daunting as all the expressways funnel south for the trip around the lake. It seems like this area has been under construction almost all of our lives, but today all 24 freshly paved...

Oct 5, 2013 - Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, KY

Day 54 - Clarksville, IN 10/5/2013 We left Renfro Valley today and headed to Lexington Horse Park. We spent most of the day there enjoying the visit. We got a few sprinkles during the day, nothing big. Toward the end of the day, we went to see the Hall of Champions, on the walk over to the last museum we wanted to see it was starting to look ugly, but we went anyway. We started in the gift shop and before we could even check out, all hell broke loose in the sky. There was a metal roof on the building so we could really hear it pouring...

Then onto the Ohio Canal Lock & Dam area where we walked a few miles along the river path after looking at the huge dam area never seen a lock as large as this one. The river walk is where we saw the Red...

Sep 20, 2012 - Another Journey

Thursday we left Oaktown a drive of 80+ miles to Loogootee where we had booked & paid for a campsite for 3 nights, on arrival we found there was no way our RV was going to fit on the site they had allocated to us, we drove round and checked a few more sites out either they were too short, water, electric & sewer too far away for our pipes & leads to reach, so we gave up & got a refund they asked how long our RV was as well when I booked. So quick research through some campground books to find somewhere else to stay another 80+ miles to...

Oct 17, 2011 - Falls of the Ohio State Park

Like you, I asked "What are the "Falls?" The Falls of the Ohio are nothing like Niagara Falls. There are a series of rapids caused by water flowing over ledges of hard limestone composed of vast numbers of fossils. the first rapids began in front of what is now downtown Louisville and continued to Sand Island, a distance of 2.5 miles and a drop of 26 feet. when a dam was built in the 1920's, the river's flow was restricted and most of the rapids were covered with water. Today, only remnants of these rapids remain below the dam. An...

Oct 16, 2011 - Shopping, Football, & Baseball

As an unexpected surprise, we learned that the campground was a couple of blocks behind a suburban shoppers' paradise with some of the following stores: Walmart, Sam's Club, Bass Pro Shop, Target, and Lowe's. At Walmart, we bought a new Black and Decker Toast-R-Oven as the one Dan's mother had given us fell on the floor while driving (it should have been stored away, but we forgot when we left the previous campground) and several pieces broke off (plus it smashed a hole in the storage area across from the counter where it had been...

Oct 15, 2011 - Add-More Campground

Today we drove approximately 125 miles to the Add-More Campground in Clarksville, IN, north of Louisville, KY. We decided to stay in Indiana due to the September closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge that carries I-64 traffic across the Ohio River at the Kentucky-Indiana state line on the west side of Louisville. We had heard of major traffic problems on the other two bridges over the Ohio River. Upon arrival at the campground, Dan had to make sure that our assigned site was satellite friendly in order to watch the final game(s) of the...

Fall Trip 2011

Aug 5, 2011 - Louisville Metro KOA, Clarksville, IN

We left Tennessee and headed into Kentucky. We passed by Corbin, KY, the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken, then on to Louisville, KY, home of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat factory. We checked in at the Louisville Metro KOA for the night, which is actually located in Clarksville, Indiana. At the recommendation of locals, we had dinner at the Buckhead Mountain Grill on the scenic Ohio River. We watched boats on the river and saw the sunset. Beautiful.
