Lucy started the day by hitting some of the small towns along US 31W in Kentucky. It was kind of slow going but worth the effort as there was a lot to see. We made our way up to Fort Knox where we visited the General George S. Patton Museum, and got the see the Gold Repository Building.

We continued on to Louisville where we toured downtown and saw the giant Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat which was in front of their factory. We also drove by Churchill Downs.

As we headed north from Louisville, it started to rain. We continued north to Walton, Kentucky where we got Lucy the last available site at the Oak Creek Campground. We got Lucy all set up as the rain continued. We covered 190 miles today. It's now 44 degrees and still raining. It sure is nice to be snuggled into Lucy for the night.

Lucy Arrives at Jackson Center

Today we continued north into Ohio. We stopped in Cincinnati to visit Jungle Jim's, the world's largest supermarket. We have been there a couple of times before, but we always enjoy our visits. The place is so massive that it defies description. It's a must see if you go through Cincinnati. It also has a massive parking lot, so visits while pulling a large trailer pose no problems.

We continued north through Dayton and on to Jackson Center. We got to the factory at about 4PM, and got Lucy a campsite in the Terraport.

Lucy is all settled in for the night.

Hi Gene,

The Giraffes were quite a sight. They are all over the roof of the Traders World Market along I-75, just north of Downtown Dayton, Ohio.

We're fairly new to Airstreaming and LOVE IT! We just traded up from a 16' Sport to a 25' FB Twin Bed Flying Cloud. We also named her Lucy because of our "Lucy & Ricky" Twin Bed arrangement. We're not retired yet, so we just take weekend trips, but we did see the Airstream Factory also in Jackson Center while we were visiting my sister in Columbus, OH in March...it was awesome!

Have fun on your cross-country trip with your Lucy!

Two questions...where do I sign up to vacation with you thru your postings and what do you use the truck camper for? That camper can really give great raveling options as an office or whatever.

By simply posting to this thread, you have subscribed to it. To find it again, simply go 'Quick Links' on the upper dark blue tool bar. Near the bottom of the drop down menu is 'Subscribed Threads'. Click on that and it will give you of threads that you have posted to with the most recent first.

We use Fred and Ethel (the truck and truck camper) to get off the reservation. We will leave Lucy at a campground, and head off into the back country for a couple of days at a time with Fred and Ethel. Having the truck camper gives us a lot of options. Fred and Ethel can easily go places that Lucy can't navigate.

We like to say that we travel with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a beer fridge.

Enjoying your travel adventure journal.

We spent two nights down in Dayton while Jackson Center worked on our trailer. We elected to do this as after the plant tour (took twice) we elected to explore Dayton a bit. The Air Force Museum was very nice, loved it.

We also thoroughly enjoyed looking over the antique Airstreams in the parking lot.

The Jackson Center folks treated us very well. It is Airstream nirvana.

When we woke up this morning, it was 36 degrees here in Jackson Center, Ohio. It was a bit chilly, but nothing that Lucy's heat pump couldn't handle.

We got Lucy all checked in at the Airstream Service Center. We went over the list of repairs and improvements with the Service Manager. Lucy's appointment is for tomorrow morning. They will come to get her at 7:00 AM.

We decided to take a ride and tour Lima, Ohio. Lima is about 30 miles north of Jackson Center. Lima is a city of 40,000, and is the Seat of Allen County. Lima is large enough to have a Sam's, so we were able to have lunch at the "Club". We toured around Lima for a while, seeing the sights.

One of the interesting sights in Downtown Lima is Kewpee Hamburgers. It has been in the same building since opening in 1928. Kewpee is a chain of hamburger stands in Michigan and Ohio. Kewpee is second in age only to White Castle. Kewpee came up with the original square hamburger which was later copied by Dave Thomas at Wendy's. The art deco building is well preserved in its white and bright orange color scheme. We decided that we would try one of their hamburgers, and it was quite good.

We got back to Lucy in Jackson Center before dark. We will spend the evening getting her ready for the morning.

Interesting story about Kewpee's hamburgers. Reminds me of the old Maid-Rite diner in Marshalltown, Iowa. Loose meat hamburgers where the juice soaks the bun. It has been there for years and years. It's a classic sandwich in that city.

I bet New Lucy is all tickled being back at the "puppy farm".
