Lucy had a good day on the road making her way from northern Alabama, through Tennessee, and on to Kentucky. We got a fairly early start and stayed with I-65, covering about 220 miles today.

We made a stop in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and had lunch with some dear friends who live there. After lunch, we continued a short distance and decided to stop early so we could visit Mammoth Cave National Park. We got Lucy a campsite at Singing Hills RV Park in Cave City, Kentucky. We visited the Park late in the day and enjoyed our fairly short visit. As neither of us are cave people, seeing the entrance to Mammoth Cave and going into it a hundred feet or so was sufficient. and all of the caving we needed to do.

We got back to Lucy after dark as we made a run over to Wal-Mart Glasgow. We got settled into Lucy right as it began to rain. We are going to wait until the morning to decide if we want to spend another night here to tour the area, or move on.

Thx for taking us on your next trip. Enjoyed the last one. We like your short narrating style and the photos. We also like so snap pics of some town architecture, old movie houses, churches and trees. Safe travels.

Weeeeee! Off we go….

We stayed in one of those cabins some years ago in post 17—I think it was the last one on the right, the longest walk from our SUV. When we checked out each one of us paid for the 2 nights not having worked that out between us. Took a while and I had to have the Park sup't intervene with the concessionaire, but we got our extra money back.

When we were in Cave City, we saw a wigwam motel there. We preferred to stay in the Park though.

We enjoyed two different trips through the caves—we are cave people. You find the mooses, we'll do the caves. JC and Maine just doesn't seem like a "cross country excursion". I think of cross country as east—west, not north—south. Now you've got me thinking in a new way. I feel like I've been turned sideways.

If cross country includes out west after Maine, let us know if you're in the neighborhood.

Cross-country can also be from the far northwest corner to the far southeast corner and back, or vice-versa. We recently did the first. Maybe Moosetags can do the latter once they get to Maine.

We love Maine, have a wonderful trip. Last time we were there we ate so much lobster and blueberry pie... Well, it might be time to do that again sometime soon.

Yes, but that is still east—west to me. If Brian and SuEllyn go cross country from Maine to San Diego, they'll come right through here. I'll try to tempt them with stories of mooses on Grand Mesa, not far from here.

You may not be "cave people" but Mammoth is one of the most famous in the world (why it's one of only 21 World Heritage Sites in the US). First, because it's the longest cave system. Where you camped, you were actually parked over passages of the cave, which extends beyond Cave City and Horse Cave and half-way to Glasgow; over 400 miles of passageways, IIRC. Second, even if you went only a hundred feet in you got to see one of the most famous parts. I'm sure you saw the "big room" that gave the cave it's name and the remains of the salt peter mines from the early 1800's. That was a necessity for black powder which was in short supply during the War of 1812 because most of it came from Europe. The local lore says we might all be speaking with an English accent if it weren't for Mammoth Cave!

Okay... now I'm on board! But one question - I figured out Fred, and Lucy, but who's Ethel?

Ethel is the Outfitter pop-up truck camper that rides on Fred's back.

So good to see that you are on the road again, and we all get to go along for the ride!

Since you were on I-65, wondering if traffic had improved any in Nashville? We've spent time several trips in the backed up traffic there, and it doesn't really matter what time of day it is.

We're going down to Grayton Beach this Fall, and that's the route we take -- can't wait to get down there!

We didn't have any trouble through Nashville this time, but we have in the past. The big cities are always susceptible to traffic problems.

Grayton is a really great park.
