May 19, 2015 - Berea, Kentucky
It is a travel day. We get on 75N with the intention of taking 25W which parallels the interstate. We soon realize that we need to stay on the interstate at least through northern Tennessee. There is a lot of climbing. We cross the border into Kentucky. There is less climbing but it is mountainous nonetheless. We stay on the interstate. Near Renfro Valley we encounter road construction. This is one of the things we hate about the interstate. We pass the construction area but decide it is time to take a break. We see a sign for the Kentucky...Jump to full entry
Oct 1, 2013 - Schmobia Phobia, Schmanic Panic, This Ain't The Titanic!
10/1/2013. Tuesday. Schmobia Phobia, Schmanic Panic, This Ain't The Titanic! It was an early start-9am-for us this morning as we headed north on I75 for 13 miles to Berea, Ky. Berea is the capitol for Kentucky arts and crafts and is a quaint little town that is separated into the Old Town and the College Square. Berea College is a very old college that specializes in the arts and has a great history. Students don't have to pay to go to this school but they must come from indigent families and they must graduate in the top 5% of their high...Jump to full entry
Sep 30, 2013 - Yeah! We're Leaving Indiana, Maybe!
9/30/2013. Monday. Yeah! We're Leaving Indiana, Maybe! This morning in good old Indiana was misty and heavily overcast; it looked like it was going to snow. We were both excited about leaving this state and were eagerly looking forward to spending a day in Kentucky, a more civilized state if you ask me. I had dumped both tanks last night so all we had to do was disconnect the power and water and mount the car onto the tow dolly. We didn't want block the roadway in the campground so we drove to the laundry area where there was a level,...Jump to full entry
Aug 31, 2012 - Pleasant Hill Shaker Village
We really are trying to get home, honest. We got to our RV park in KY and I have had a touch of something, kind of feeling bad so we did not go any where after we arrived. This morning I got up feeling much better so we decided to stay an extra day to go and see the Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill which was only about 30 miles away. It was a very pretty scenic place. I will give you a thumbnail of the history. The Shakers came to KY in 1805 and established the community. They thrived until about 1860 when they begin to decline. The village...Jump to full entry
Jul 27, 2012 - We're on the road !!
July 27, 2012 Thought it would never arrive, but this was the day!! We were on the road to adventure. It was supposed to be an easy day. But we were a little slow getting started. And it took a bit longer getting to Berea, Kentucky than the Streets & Trips software indicated. But by 3PM we pulled into our campsite in 100+ degree weather with hardly a cloud in the sky. I didn’t even unhook the trailer. Just leveled up a bit, hooked up the water, plugged in the electric, turned on the air conditioning & closed the door for the night. After...Jump to full entry
Oct 3, 2009 - We finally started out
Well, are you sitting down? We finally got all the health issues straightened out and we are on our way. We left Bellevue, OH on Saturday morning. David fought a head wind all day, which wasn't very pleasant. The PT Cruiser traveled well after we figured out that the dealership had strapped it down incorrectly. We traveled down I75 to Corinth, KY to Three Springs Campground. I called ahead and asked if they could accommodate a 40 foot bus. She assured me that if we had leveling jacks, they had a pull through space for us. Now, when one is...Jump to full entry
Nov 17, 2008 - Into Kentucky
We arrived in Berea, KY in the early afternoon and stayed at Walnut Meadow RV Park which is pretty deserted in the winter. Berea is named after a biblical Greek town and advertises itself as the folk arts and crafts capital of Kentucky. World-renowned artists and craftspeople operate over 40 shops and studios, most of which are closed in the winter so we were unable to see them. Berea College began as the first interracial and coeducational college in the South. It is a nationally top-ranked college and students from over 60 countries...Jump to full entry
Dec 2, 2007 - Day In; Berea, Kentucky; Refreshing
Sunday-Tuesday, December 2-4, 2007 Sunday, December 2, 2007 I finished getting the birthday and Christmas boxes and packages ready to mail. Then I published November 25th and 29th onto our website. Rick fixed the black water hose and did some planning for our return to Kentucky in March or April. During the evening we heard heavy rains and strong winds. The wind really rocked the motorhome!!! Before going to bed we put the MotoSat down. Monday, December 3, 2007 The wind woke us up several times during the night. Sometimes we could hear it...Jump to full entry
Nov 10, 2007 - Berea, Kentucky (Walnut Meadow RV Park)
November 10/07 Another travel day, we went from Millersburg to Walnut Meadow RV Campground in Berea, Kentucky. We drove down I-75 and listened to Buster meowing his brains out, so now I'm seeing the USA from the back seat of the truck. This run of the highway was hilly and the view was beautiful. The trees are in full colour; yellow, orange, red and green. The Cumberland Plateau were so colourful, it look like a huge quilt. Photos (click images above): The colours of the trees was stunning... and the views over the sides of the mountains...Jump to full entry
Nov 3, 2007 - Finally we are camping in a RV park
We left Bloomington, Illinois this morning at 8:00 a.m. The weather was beautiful. Nice and sunny. We drove east to Indiana and thru Indianapolis and then down south to Louisville, Kentucky. We continued East to Lexington, Kentucky and stopped for the evening in a town called Berea, Kentucky which is just outside of Daniel Boone National Forest. We are finally camped at a nice little RV park with absolutely gorgeous fall coloured trees. We were surprised to see how many trees were still green along the route as well as the grass which...Jump to full entry
Oct 28, 2007 - Berea, KY
First, let me say that I had a great time with my mom, sister, brother-in-law, niece, and great nephews in Versailles, IN these past two weeks. We did a lot of baking and cooking, believe it or not, but I won't say how successful we were or weren't with various things. Suffice it to say my sister and I understand why we aren't cooks! My sister has a "new" part chihuahua dog who barked like crazy when Mom and I first arrived, but who grew to love to see me before a week had passed. Her name is Sugar and she is a sweet thing. She and my Mom...Jump to full entry
