Jun 12, 2015 - Abe Lincoln and Jim Beam

Today we took the Jeep and toured the Jim Beam distillery in Clermont, KY. We were given a tour of every aspect of the production process including access to the bottling plant floor. Very interesting. At the end, we were given a “complimentary” tasting that you get with your $10 paid tour ticket. We were issued credit-card like cards with each having a 2-drink credit on them. The cards can be inserted into a type of vending machine that dispenses according to the buttons you push, er, mash. You don’t push buttons here; you mash them (we...

Jun 9, 2015 - Elizabethtown, KY

Tonight we ended up in Elizabethtown, KY. We chose this place because from here we can go to Bowling Green, Louisville, and other nearby attractions. We have a reservation at the Corvette assembly plant tomorrow afternoon. The confirmation says I “was selected to receive a reservation”. So, I guess there was some sort of competition of which I was unaware. Sorry, GM doesn’t allow pix of the facility, so I won’t be posting any. However, if they give free samples, I will make sure that each and every one of you gets a ride. We plan to be...

Apr 27, 2015 - Travel Day

On the road again! Heading to Elizabethtown, Kentucky on our way to Nashville, TN. Had our first showers today, Thank goodness. A very eventful ride today. Vinny drove again for one and a half hours! He drove thru a traffic jam, over very high bridges and thru huge road barriers. A harrowing ride for all. Arthur peed for the first time while the RV was actually moving. We're not cleaning that bathroom! Kathy and Rosina napped.

We have to go there and pick up4 penny machines we are having worked on. What happened today, another interstate closure due to an accident. = 2 or 3 hours of additional travel. Add to this, it is cold and snowing. smiling, a bad day of travel is still so much better when you are retired and you can say to yourself, within reason, it doesn't matter because we are retired and were not...

VIVA - Las Vegas

Oct 1, 2012 - The Big Black Cloud

Another tale of woe begins. We left our campground in Nashville and pulled around to hook up the car; as we got back into the motorhome we both smelled ammonia. We know that the smell of ammonia can come from the refrigerator if the coolant is leaking, so we shut off the refrigerator and drove 50 miles to Bowling Green, KY where there was a Camping World to have them check it, keeping the windows open and the fans blowing to air it out. They hardly even looked at it, just opened the door and took a whiff, and told us we needed a new cooling...

May 4, 2012 - Elizabethtown, KY

On to Fort Knox, KY for a couple of days...NOT! Can't make reservations at a majority of military campgrounds, so we were hoping to pull in and get a site for a few days. We neglected to take into account that the Kentucky Derby was running this weekend so there was no room for us there. We headed on down the road to Elizabethtown and found the last spot at the E'town Crossroads Campground. And we were lucky to get that site! Since we were able to finish what we wanted to do at Fort Knox, we decided to only stay 2 nights and headed out a...

Nov 17, 2011 - OTRA - KY - Elizabethtown

11/17/11 Since today’s trip is only about 2 ½ hours, we just took it easy before getting ready to leave. Didn’t hit the road until 11:50 a.m. The lady’s cat hadn’t returned by the time we left but they’re going to be here all winter so I’m hoping it will return soon. Another easy drive in nice weather. Wow, Lexington is surely horse country. Miles and miles of 4-board fencing and many, many beautiful horse farms. I think I’d like to stop here on the way north next year and visit the Kentucky Horse Park and the Keeneland Sales Barn. Many,...

Mar 8, 2011 - Elizabethtown, KY

March 8 As we drive north on the Trace and then through Nashville and get onto Interstate 65 northbound. We had planned to stay in Bardstown, Kentucky at their State Park, which appeared open last year when we drove through in March. However, we were informed at the Kentucky State Visitors Centre that all the state parks do not open for camping until the first of April. So, we are off to the Crossroads Campground in Elizabethtown again. We booked in for 2 nights to give us some time to visit the Abbey again and to see if there are any...

Dec 28, 2010 - Elizabethtown, KY

The next morning there was ice on the windshield of the motorhome; not a big surprise. After a quick breakfast and a walk around the motorhome and dolly to make sure everything was OK, we headed out onto the highway heading for out next stop in Kentucky. A noise from the rear stopped out progress after a few hundred yards where we pulled over to the side of the highway. We seemed to be having problems with the dolly and decided to have Mary drive her car behind the motorhome to find a shop to look at the problem. This we did and after a...

Jul 24, 2010 - Camp Carlson, KY

Since we slept in a little, we left Oberlin, OH about 10:30 this morning, heading toward Camp Carlson at Fort Knox in KY. We decided not to stay at a Wal-Mart tonight since it is so hot. We would need to run the generator all night for the AC. It was a long and tiring drive for Gene. We made a stop at the “Flying J” in Jeffersonville, OH for gas and to pick up our “coffee slushies”. On the way, we made 2 rest stops, so we could have lunch and for Gene to rest. We arrived at Camp Carlson about 6:30 pm. Since, it doesn’t get dark until about...

Dec 31, 2009 - New Year's Eve

While taking a day off from travel, Steve unhooked the Yaris and we went to explore Bardstown. The day was drizzy and cool and Bardstown was sleepy quiet. We walked around the historic downtown and browsed through a couple very interesting stores that were open. Resisted the urge to buy. Unfortunately most tourist attractions were closed but there was one I really wanted to visit and that was the Gethsemeni Abby. It was well worth the short trip ouside of town. Set back in a thousand acres of rolling hills,you could feel the tranquility as...

Dec 30, 2009 - Elizabethown, Kentuky

Our second day on the road was spent in a mixture of sun and cloud with temperatures far milder than we left behind in Huntsville. We left the snow behind, except for the odd patch. Continuing down I75 through Cincinnati and on to Lexington, KY., we chose the Bluegrass Parkway, a new road for us. We marvelled at the large properties devoted to horse racing as we drove through Lexington. We picked a small campground in Elizabethtown, a small town in the middle of Kentucky, for our second nights stay. It was a chance to wash all the salt of...
