Family Updates RV Trip 1999 RV Trip 2005



We drove out of North Carolina, back through Tennessee and then into Kentucky.  Madeline was asleep and so Ann took this picture. To help you out  - Kentucky is the state of unbridled spirit.

Here is our campsite at the Kentucky Horse Park Campgrounds north of Lexington.   This is the only park we could not make reservations at.  Since we only had one night we were able to squeeze in.  The park had overflow camping with electric hookups and there was a large overflow area.   The park had a swimming pool, tennis courts, volleyball court and basketball courts.   We had a large grassy area behind the motor home and the kids played whiffle ball. The showers were spacious, clean and had great water pressure.

The campground was connected to the Kentucky Horse Park.  We did not see much of it but it is called the National Horse Center.  It has the International Museum of the Horse and the American Saddlebred Museum.   Every hour from 9-4PM they have tours and parades (i.e. the parade of breeds).   We kept seeing people ride around the camp in golf carts and gators.  Well, we find out you could rent the golf carts.   Then you can drive out of the back of the campground and into the back of the Kentucky Horse Park.  Phil and I walked out the back and here is the steeplechase course. The little spots in the background are horses.

The end of another day.   The land is very green and full of rolling hills and meadows.

In the morning we took off across the state of Kentucky.  Louisville is full of rivers and bridges.   The bridges were of all different architectures.  We drove right through the center of the city on Highway 64.  There were lots of tall buildings and riverfront parks.   Some businesses were up high on stilts in case of flooding on the riveredge.

 A lot of states have natural borders.   When we crossed the Ohio river,  we entered Indiana.
