TOUR AMERICA 2019: KENTUCKY, THE BLUEGRASS STATE

Home Is Where We Park It:  Whispering Hills RV Park, Georgetown, KY

June 23, 2019

Temperature 81 degrees

Travel Day – One Day Earlier Than Expected

To go or to stay, that was the question of the day.  When we awoke this morning the weather report for the coming night and tomorrow was not too good.

First we called the office at Baily’s Point to ask Could we stay an extra day?  Sorry, but someone is coming into that site Monday night.

Next we called Whispering Hills to ask Could we come in a day earlier?  No problem we have room for you.

Still we hemmed and hawed.  We kept checking the weather and if anything it was getting even worse.  They were now talking about damaging hail, strong gusting winds, and driving rain.  Both for Sunday night and Monday morning.

Time to go.  This, though, was the latest we had ever gotten on the road.  It was now 12:30 pm and we were going to gain an hour because we were going back into the Eastern Time Zone.

We quickly packed up, we have this down to a science by now.  Slides in, jacks up, disconnect from the mother ship and we were ready to roll.

Thankfully it was an easy four hour trip, add another hour since we were back in Eastern Standard Time.  All the way up we kept hearing severe weather alerts on the radio for the area we had just left.  We were so glad we had made the decision to go.

By 6 pm we saw the sign we were looking for.

We consider ourselves fortunate to have a site.  This park is packed and even after we got here they just kept rolling in.

We’re home now for the next seven days.  We have some sightseeing to do in the area which we are looking forward to.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  As we were rolling north we both started laughing at almost the same time.  We couldn’t remember the last time we were, shall we say, so impulsive.  It felt good and it turned out we both believe to be the right call.  Right now, though, it’s time to get some sleep.  The extra hour is taking its toll.

Thanks again for traveling with us.  We always enjoy your company.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before

See you on down the road!

  1. Glad you left the nasty weather behind. Hoping the sun will shine on you this week. We’re spending a few days at TT Hershey, but running out for several appointments. Still enjoying it.
