TOUR AMERICA 2019: KENTUCKY, THE BLUEGRASS STATE

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

June 24, 2019

Temperature 79 degrees

Crossed Wires

Not much doing today.  We began making plans for some sightseeing.  Did some general clean up.  Found out what the pieces from the front slide belonged to – weather stripping only.  Finished setting up, only to have to break it all down again.  More about that later.

Once we got our act together we went grocery shopping.  Hey, Barbara is never going to pass up a chance to shop at an Aldi!  I also purchased a new battery for Little Graybeard.  The one that was in there was the original which means it was five years old.  Knowing that they don’t last forever I decided to be proactive and replace it now before we were left stranded somewhere.

Once we returned home we started putting groceries away when a truck pulling a travel trailer stopped in front of our site.  Then we heard angry words to the effect I don’t care whose fault it is, this is my site now get them out of there.  Long story short wires got crossed and the site we were in was assigned to both of us.

Barbara went to the office to straighten things out.  She later reported that they offered the very irate customer another pull through site.  They offered him the use of a golf cart since he loudly let everyone know that he was handicap and needed to be close to the bathrooms.  What?  No bathroom in your trailer?  He wasn’t budging.  He just kept saying get them out of my site.

They asked us if we would be willing to move.  No problem but it would take us a bit to gather things together, put groceries away and move out.  So move we did and in return for our cooperation we were given a free nights stay.   We’re still in a pull through with all the amenities we had before.  We’re level.  Better yet come tomorrow we were told if we really didn’t like the site they would move us to an even better one.  We’re good.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We’ve met so many, many wonderful people in our two years of travel.  The rude and obnoxious are definitely in the minority but they are there and occasionally we do bump into them.  That’s life.  We’re not going to let it get to us nor ruin our view of people in general.   Life is still good and so are the majority of people.

Thanks for joining us again today.  It’s always great having you along.  Catch you 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. There are some people that are unhappy about something, but he may be dealing with a much bigger problem. Thanks for showing him how good people react to a bad situation.
