Sep 9, 2017 - Back to Park City, Kentucky

Once we departed Pall Mall and we got back into cell phone service, we made a few phone calls, checked our messages and emails then determined that we'd be safe if we returned from whence we came. So, it's back to the Thousand Trails park at Diamond Caverns. We'll sit out Irma here, we'll probably get some drenching and some winds but not of the tropical storm levels.

Sep 5, 2017 - Diamond Caverns, near Bowling Green, KY

It was a great drive of 283 miles from Clinton, IN, we chose to drive cross country instead of freeways. We like to do that because it's where we see most of true America! The small towns and beautiful countryside we experience is terrific. The freeways have terrible portions, shaking and pounding us we had to endure while on them. This stop is near the Mammoth Caverns NP about 20 miles north of Bowling Green, Kentucky at a Thousand Trails park. Though, we had originally stopped here for 1 night, we did extend once again, due to the effects...

Nov 2, 2016 - Park City, KY - Diamond Caverns Thousand Trails RV

October 26 through November 2, 2016 Since we left the family in Newark, NY we’ve been blessed with two events. First, our grandson Joshua Carl, after several months of hospitalization for a deadly bacterial infection in his blood and open-heart surgery to clean the mass from the infection off his valve, was finally released from the hospital. Second, within a half hour of arriving home Josh and Heather ended up going back to the hospital to deliver their son Desmund Sean Cuthbertson, our great grandson. Pat’s nephew Steven also had open...

Saturday we were in Sikeston, MO for an overnight and to eat at Lambert's Cafe, the home of Thrown Rolls (had a video of a roll being thrown but the technology will not let me put it on, oh well). Sunday we arrived in Park City, KY just ahead of the rain. Started raining just after we set up. Came to Park City to go over to Bowling Green (20 miles) and go the the Corvette Factory and Museum. Found out that the Factory tour was booked solid Monday and Tuesday was set aside for a private group, scratch the tour. Monday was almost constant...

Yesterday we stayed at the campground all day. We discussed campgrounds for Louisville and Lexington. In Louisville we had only three choices. Two KOA's and a campground that was not rated very good. As much as we try to stay away from KOA we decided to bite the bullet. KOA South was about 18 miles south of Louisville and no sewer. KOA Metro was in Clarksville, Indiana which is right across the river from downtown Louisville and close to everything. We chose the latter even though we were sure it would be more hectic there. We then started...

Sep 8, 2015 - Labor Day weekend Days 24-29

September 3, 2015 Day 24 Mammoth Caves National Park We reserved 7 days at this campground primarily to tour Mammoth Caves but there are others places in the area that we plan to visit as well. Mammoth Caves is a spider web of interconnected caves at several levels hundreds of feet deep. With over 400 miles of surveyed caves it is by far the largest cave system in the world. Formation of the Mammoth Caves system started 350 million years ago when this area was under a shallow sea. For 70 million years, calcium carbonate shells from sea...

We started out the day with a breakfast of bacon, hash browns, eggs, toast and fruit prepared by chef Bill. Our plan was to have a relaxing day and a short drive through parts of the park that we have not explored. We had seen a sign to the Green River ferry so that was our first stop. The ferry can hold three cars at a time and just goes back and forth all day. What a boring job that would be. It was surprising to see that this road is used a lot and the process moves quite quickly. From there we checked out a campground that was for large...

Our plan for today was to visit the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln who was born (Sinking Spring Farm)on February 12, 1809 and the Makers Mark Distillery where they make whisky. We visited the memorial first. They had an interesting film then we walked the grounds out to the memorial. Inside the memorial is a replica of the home they believe to be like the one where he was born. We then left there toward Makers Mark Distillery passing the boyhood home where he grew up (Knob Creek.) All of the driving to this facility is on country roads...

The Ables have tickets for another cave tour this afternoon. After reviewing them again we decided to try a different one. This one has a limited number of people so we decided we should drive up to the ticket booth and see what was available. The Ables tour was at 1:30 and ours 3:30. To kill some time we went for a ride within the park. We saw a road stating that it went to a picnic area and boat ramp so we took the dirt road to check it out. We found that this is where the companies that rent kayaks launch their boats for trips down the...

This morning we took our time getting around. I did some laundry and then the four of us headed to The Visitors Center to check out the tours. We were very surprised to find out there were so many. Now we needed to make a decision. After accomplishing that we purchased our tickets and waited for the tour to start. We knew that at the end we would have to climb 155 stairs to the surface but thought we could do it eventually. As the Ranger explained that some of the passages were very narrow and close to your face plus some very short in...

We left Nashville around 10:30. Our drive today is only about 72 miles. The heat has not subsided and it was already in the 80's when we left. We decided that we would stop in Bowling Green to visit the National Corvette Museum. They had a good movie about the birth of the Corvette and how at one time they were going to stop production. A foreign designer ( I can't remember his name) managed to talk General Motors into giving him a chance at redesigning the car. At one point the redesign process started with some fellow designers in secret...

Near Bowling Green, Kentucky I was in my glory at this stop. The town we are in, Park City, had miles and miles of garage sales this weekend all along Route 31W. They do this every year. There were hundreds of set-ups. Everywhere you looked people were selling their "junk" and some even selling food and animals. Unfortunately we didn't find any treasures! I am getting a little tired of the presidents. But Mr. Neal wanted to see Lincoln's birthplace, which was just a stones throw away. Actually it was a nice exhibit and we learned quite a...
