Jun 10, 2017 - Leaving Kentucky

Yesterday we decided we'd move on further north this morning so we crossed the Green River one last time by Ferry :) to Mammoth Cave National Park and this time we were able to take the tour of the main cavern .. no photography is allowed except in particular areas but there was still a lack of light and no flash allowed. My photographic skills lack much and I'm sure Steve is rolling his eyes but you'll get the idea :) We drove a little of the countryside and finally saw a few signs that there are Amish and Mennonite communities here. The...

Jun 8, 2017 - Our adventures continue

I hope our little recaps of our day's events aren't boring to all as we are really enjoying just taking our time, looking at the countryside and seeing whatever 'attractions' are near where we finally stop. We have no real plan and that is the real enjoyment. To catch you up .. We checked into Nolan Lake State Park in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky on Tuesday evening. Beautiful park and our spot was directly on the river. The next morning we took the Green River Ferry across the river to the Mammoth Cave National Park. Taking a ferry to cross a...

Jun 6, 2017 - Travel and check in day ..Kentucky

Today was a travel check in day. As we'd been to Tennessee several times we did not feel the need to explore the state further .. this trip anyway. We drove through from Alabama, switching back and forth between highways and scenic roads, crossing the Tennessee River (while still in Alabama - go figure)for the first time ever, passing by wheat and corn fields that seemed to go on forever and passing through some really quaint little towns with interesting shops I would have loved to explore .. sigh! We once again lucked out with a great...

Aug 30, 2016 - Nolin Lake State Park (8/28 - 8/31/16)

On our drive over to the park we drove in 3 different states: Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky. We also crossed the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. What a treat! We spent 4 nights at the Nolin Lake State Park. This is a beautiful park located in Mammoth Cave, KY. Our site, #38, was right on the water. It was a very nice, large and wooded site. Once we got set up I put out my hummingbird feeder and had takers right away. This time we had a beautiful Ruby-throated male. The park isn't very close to a town, but we drove into Bowling Green on...

Aug 22, 2014 - Picking up Christopher!

On the road to pick up Christopher from his FTC (Fast track Calculus Program), Fran and I had some negotiating to do regarding timelines. Apparently I got a little (ok, a lot) carried away with our spontaneous park visits. So we agreed to stop and camp at a biggie, MAMMOTH one might say--Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. We've done a lot of caving but this one really is huge; it's the biggest known cave in the world with over 400 miles of tunnels all within only 7 miles. It also played an important role in helping us win the war of 1812, as slaves...

Rumsky Retirement?

Aug 23, 2008 - Mammoth Cave - Park City, KY

Another 90 minutes south on I-65 found us at Park City, KY at the entrance to Mammoth Cave National Park. We’re staying at one of our membership parks and boy do they have a lot of activities planned for the week, which is good since there isn’t much else around here except Mammoth Cave. After we arrived, we set up and then went to “downtown” Cave City, which is the next town to the north. Aside from a few fairly large antique shops, which I would classify as mostly junk shops, there isn’t too much here. There are a few things such as...

Jul 7, 2008 - On to Mammoth Cave, KY

A second morning without a puppet show, because we needed to get on our way. I immediately went to Amber’s bed and she was beginning to stir. She saw me and grabbed hold. I flipped her right off her bed and put the bed in our room. She laughed and laughed. They all put their things away and got ready for the day. We had cereal and got Grace ready to move. Jared went outside to help grandpa and Amber and Maddie stayed inside and helped me. They are great helpers. It’s time to be off. We will drive through Tennessee and onto Mammoth Cave in...

Camp G&G 2008

Aug 20, 2007 - Mammoth Cave National Park

This morning I drove to the Mammoth Cave National Park and took the two-hour, two-mile Historic Tour. This cave is not pretty but it is interesting. Some of the landmarks seen on this tour include the Rotunda, Methodist Church, Salt Petre artifacts, Giant's Coffin and the Bottomless Pit. The story about the Methodist Church is interesting. It seems that the local Methodist preacher had Sunday services in the cave during the summer. He was no dummy; there was natural "air conditioning" and he had a captive audience. No one could leave the...
