Jun 18, 2018 - Day 15 - Bowling Green, KY

With no cereal or milk in the RV this morning, we disconnected the RV for the day and went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast – in air conditioning! We said goodbye to Nashville, TN and headed north. One thing that was interesting to see along TN I-65 north was someone weed-wacking along the guard rails! Then, paying attention to the guard rails along that interstate, they were all neatly trimmed and the edges of the road mowed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen NYS weed-wack around our guard rails!! It took us a little over an hour to arrive at...

2018 Trip

Jun 11, 2018 - Corvette Museum

We got an early start; our venue was the Corvette Museum and it opens at 8 o'clock. Well, we won't be there that early but we want to put some miles on after we do our sightseeing there. The Museum is a chronicle of the Corvette and the people who made it a legend. On display are some of the rarest, fastest and most historic examples of this iconic car. The tour is self-guided and very well done. A large section is dedicated to the Corvette Cave In, that day in 2014 when eight Corvettes fell victim to a sinkhole collapse. The cars have...

Adventures for 2018

Oct 27, 2017 - Mammoth Cave

We were up and on the road early. I made a quick breakfast so Cliff didn't get Cracker Barrel again!! Another day. We got to the park early and were able to get a afternoon tour of the caves. Many of them were sold out for today and most all sold out for tomorrow. We took the historic tour. Not a lot of geology covered in it. Mammoth Cave is the longest known Cave system in the world. Our tour entered at the Historic entrance, discovered by pioneers in the 1790's and by Indians thousands of years earlier. Near the entrance at the Rotunda,...

Our trip east.

Oct 23, 2017 - Bowling Green, Kentucky

A day trip to Bowling Green, Kentucky which is about 90 minutes from our rv park. We took I-40 West and then 1-65 North with no stops along the way. The view from the interstate offered more open spaces, farmland, and trees that are just turning color. So you are wondering why on earth would we go there? Well a couple of reasons, cars for Mel and fabric for me, and just to say that we have been there. LOL There is a Corvette museum that Mel wanted to check out. Corvettes have been manufactured since 1953 so there were several decades of...

65 is good!

Sep 24, 2016 - Louisville to Bowling Green

Made sure to stop at the historic Brown Hotel in Louisville for brunch before getting on the road. The "Hot Brown" was created here and it is delicious. Easy drive to Bowling Green. Arrived in time to catch a 45 minute underground boat tour in Lost River Cave. This cave was discovered by Native Americans thousands of years ago. Both Union and Confederate soldiers sheltered here ( not at the same time!) and it was the site of an underground nite club in the 1930's. Settled in early tonight. Lots to do in the area but I am pacing myself....

Sep 22, 2016 - National Corvette Museum

Spent a couple of hours in the National Corvette Museum. A great tribute to the "all-american sports car". Located next to the assembly plant, the museum documents the evolution of the vette... from a an underpowered roadster (my favorites) to the big power racing machine of today. The tour highlighted the sink hole that swallowed eight precious vehicles in February 2014.

Jun 25, 2016 - More Letterboxing!

I couldn't find a few and didn't have time to look for many other letterboxes on Monday, so I just had to go back today! The planters of the boxes I didn't find gave me clues as to where they are because they were there, but not as expected. They will update the clues as they get time. The planters are a husband and wife team with the trail names of Fluffy Bunny and Fox Socks. Maybe I will be able to meet them before the summer is over. I was able to park and explore the campus of WKU today - I hadn't been there before. It is interesting...

Jun 20, 2016 - Letterboxing in Bowling Green

I got my stuff together to do some serious letterboxing today. There are lots of new letterboxes in and around Bowling Green and I haven't done this in a while, so off I went. I had visited a few of the places 4 years ago and see that there are new ones planted there now. Like at the walking bridge down the hill from the campus of WKU, and at the one lane bridge just west of the city. I was impressed with the restaurant called Mellow Mushroom and went back there to have dinner. Loved it!

Oct 21, 2015 - Caves, Cars & Music

Monday Oct. 19, 2015 After looking at the map we decided to take a trip north to Bowling Green, Kentucky. It is only about 45 miles north of our RV Park. Our first stop was at Lost River Cave. The tour started with a guided walk through a deep valley past a Blue Hole (a place where an underground river comes to the surface and the water is a deep blue colour from the dissolved lime deposits) and then to the front entrance of the cave. The guide told us of earlier uses of the cave. During the Civil War both Union and Confederate troops had...

Sep 2, 2015 - Day 23 Nashville, TN to Cave City, KY

September 2, 2015 Day 23 Nashville, TN to Cave City, KY We left the Grand Ole RV Park about 10 am for a short driving day of 72 miles to Park City, Kentucky. We made reservation at the Diamond Caverns Campground before we left home. This campground is part of the Thousand Trails system. There was a 2 month trial offer for a total of 14 days in any of their parks in one of their zones for $45/zone. So we signed up for 7 nights stay at this campground. We were told that they had only 30 amps but were pleasantly surprised when we checked in...

Jun 10, 2015 - Bowling Green Corvette Plant and Museum

Today can officially be called Corvette Day. We went down to Bowling Green to see GM build Corvettes. This might be the highlight of my trip. I think Maryann has seen enough cars being built to last her lifetime. But first… We played musical RV spaces this AM. This is a very old campground and the utilities were not installed with current day big rigs in mind. At the outset (according to the owner), the campground was just that - a patch of dirt where you could pitch a tent. As RVs progressed, they demanded 110v 15 amp, then 30 amp, now 50...

Jun 5, 2015 - From Nicholasville to Bowling Green

Today was SO LONG! We started at 7 am and pulled into the hotel at 6:30 pm. I confess I couldn't drag it out of the truck every single time - there were so many stops. The photos start with a map of the sale - route 68 is the main route, but there are many side trips off of the main route - even the driveways seem 5 miles long. The Servant Farm had rented out spaces to vendors so we spent the first hour there. Followed by sale after sale after sale. Harrodsburg was full of sales - it was like the whole town came out for the event. Cultural...
