Jul 28, 2019 - Daniel Boone State Park

We enjoyed the location and camping amenities at Twin Knobs Campground in the Daniel Boone National Forest. Unfortunately it was very hot and very humid and very buggy and at times, rainy. We did get a chance to dip in the lake however, which was nice and warm but very refreshing. The Daniel Boone National Forest is huge and has sections throughout Kentucky.

May 20, 2019 - Lexington

Still in Ky, camped at Kentucky Horse Park, a 260 site campground. Drove through several top level horse farms, historic old towns, and two distillerys; bought bourbon. Answer to Corvette question: one, in Museum; all others were factory test cars and were destroyed.

Sep 8, 2018 - horsing around

Not long after we crossed the northern border of Kentucky, it was obvious we were in equine territory. Horses galloped and snoozed on bright green rolling hills bisected by white picket fences. We've read that the rock below the soil leaches minerals into the grass that are especially beneficial for horses. In olden times tourists like us would visit the farms and hang over those fences to admire those horses. But in these litigious times as the horses have grown ever more valuable, their owners have blocked off the entrances to their...

May 18, 2018 - Crazy Travel Day

Before we left Goshen, we had the coach weighed by wheel and axle. Then we headed south. Several state roads and US Highways before we got back to the Interstate. Lots of beautiful country to see, which was a nice change from our normal routes. However, rain, rain, rain almost the entire way. We stopped at a rest area for lunch and to let Doug and Ozzy stretch their legs; it was raining. Always fun to walk the dog in the rain and mud. Before we take off again, a lens comes out of Doug's new glasses. Heading down I-75 at 65 MPH and Doug...

Goshen Tiffin Rally

Jun 10, 2017 - Lexington, KY.

Took a nostalgic tour of Lexington. There is a lot around here we still miss after 20 years. Most of all, our 900sf house on a 1/2 acre at the end of the lane. We brought this little house back to life while we lived here. Unfortunately the new owners put an addition on the front and removed 1/2 of the porch Larry built. If we had stayed, our plan was to replace the garage with a 2 car garage and second floor addition. Those darn grandkids started arriving in Phoenix which caused us to leave. We then could not drive by the Parkette...

May 26, 2017 - Lexington, KY

May 26, 2017 Sunshine! What started out as an un fortuitous day wound up to be very fortuitous! Each time we have been in Lexington the GPS has gotten us royally lost on what my mother called” light blue lines” on the old fashioned maps.. We are about 15 miles SE of Lexington. To put this in perspective, the GPS took us via Petaluma to get to downtown Sonoma. By the time we got to Lexington we had driven 35 miles. I should have referred to my journal from 2 years ago to remember where to park as there is not much. We ended up parking near...

May 25, 2017 - Asheville, NC to Lexington, KY

May 25, 2017 Awoke to cool sunshine but we know the weather is sporadic. Had a leisurely breakfast which has been fresh and tasty. Cage free eggs, regionally smoked bacon, fresh fruit and French toast were nice additions to the typical, cereal, toast/bagels etc. Hyatt Place is a very nice and comfortable hotel. The roof top bar is partially open air and has great views of town, nice open air fireplace on the ground floor and ample lounge areas. I really liked the gym. Extremely well located. It took us for what seemed forever to repack the...

May 24, 2017 - Kentucky Horse Park

We've arrived at the Kentucky Horse Park today. This is the first time camping at this park in the 5 years we have been doing the Horsey Hundred cycling event. We'll be here for 7 days total. Decided to take I55->Rt4->I64 east. Got somewhat a late start (10:30AM CST) from home, then add in the 5PM workabee traffic around Louisville, KY, we got into the KHP about 7:30. Road was pretty good overall. The weather was playing with us this year. At the beginning of the week, we didn't know if we were going to ride in the Horsey Hundred event. But...

2017 KY, WV, SC, AL

May 12, 2017 - Lexington, KY - Horses....and Bourbon!

It isn't often that we enter a new state for the first time, but our path from Virginia to Indiana for our annual summer visit with family took us through West Virginia – A NEW STATE – our 43rd! The scenery was beautiful as we followed Interstate 81 along the Shenandoah Valley with the Blue Ridge Mountains on the left and the Appalachian Mountains on the right. As we merged onto I-64 West, the interstate took us across the backbone of this vast mountain system which runs nearly 1,500 miles from Canada to central Alabama. The Appalachians...

Sep 12, 2016 - Lexington to Louisville KY then to St Louis, MO

We woke up to 56 degrees - haven't had that cool of a temperature in a very long time. Although we put shorts on because we knew it was going to be in the low 80's eventually - it was a bit chilly for the start. We drove to the Kentucky Horse Park, which is a large museum type facility that does horse shows as well. There were none when we were there, but we did see many interesting things. We saw where Secretariat, Man O War, Cigar, and several other well known horses were buried. We hopped on a Belgium Horse drawn trolley tour around the...

Sep 11, 2016 - Off we go

Dave and I left at 8AM - we drove through Raleigh and Greensboro, NC and headed to West Virginia. We were looking for Moonshiners, but found none. We both had never been to that state, so another pin will be placed in our map as a state we have been to. Then we headed west to Kentucky. We had been there many years ago with the kids while visiting friends, but this time, we are doing the touristy things in Lexington. It's horse country, so we are taking a tour of the horse park, going to see where Barbaro and Man O' War are buried and see...

Aug 13, 2016 - Kentucky Horse Park

With a 40% chance of rain for the day, I decided to venture out anyway and see what happens. There was a very brief shower while viewing horses, but that was it. Also, the Horse Park was quite empty, making the walk and viewing of the presentations quite enjoyable. East of Lexington is a little town called Versailles, so I stopped there to find out what that was like - my sister lives in Versailles, IN, and there was supposed to be a letterbox there. Both towns are pronounced ver-sales, not like the French pronunciation. I tried to find the...
