May 6, 2012 - What's in Fort Knox?
Apparently there's an Army base there, but I couldn't get past the gates. I was allowed to travel up the road a piece and see the Patton Museum. I passed the famous white building that guards the country's gold, but there was no place to pull over to take a picture, even while staying in my car! The museum was all about George Patton's life, of course. I remembered seeing the movie Patton and found that they run it continuously here. It also talked about other military things like the ROTC program and other wars. I understand that there...Jump to full entry
Oct 7, 2011 - Fort Knox, KY
We decided to stop by and check out that venerable old symbol of America’s gold on our way to our jobs at Amazon. Fort Knox has a lovely little campground and we stayed for several days. Just have to say that Fort Knox is an awful lot smaller than we had pictured in our “mind’s eye!” We had a nice restful few days to psych up for our next stop.Jump to full entry

From Grandma's RV Park, Shepherdsville, just south of Louisville, Kentucky. We’re probably behind pace on seeing the different things in this area as I listed in the last journal entry.

We did get out late Sunday afternoon for a short drive around the area, from which I have nothing particular to report. Yesterday though we got out & went to the...Jump to full entry
Nov 8, 2007 - Ft.Knox, KY.
Stayed here @ Camp Carlson through 12 Nov. What a great, new RV facility. We loved it here last yr & couldn't wait to get back. I played golf Fri on "post". Lucky day for me, I didn't hit any balls over the fence into the gold depository. Visited w/ our old AF buddies in Prospect, KY for 1 day & a nite. (Boys, you remember Janet & Ernie Harris.)He flies for UPS & is a State Senator too. Underachiever huh ? We're heading down to UNionville, Tn from here. Maybe we'll make it in 1 day, maybe not ? Who knows ? & better yet-w/ no time table, who...Jump to full entry
Jun 29, 2005 - NEW--Elizabethtown, Kentucky, United States of America
Well, my trip to South and Central America is now over and I am back in the United States. It has definitely been an enjoyable learning experience. I met lots of nice people, not only the locals but other backpackers from all over the world. I saw many amazing things from mountains to deserts to jungles to rivers to oceans. I was also able to see the United States from a different perspective and through the eyes of those who are not from the United States. People from other countries know far more about the United States than we, as a...Jump to full entry
