On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!

The end is in sight.
I finally was able to corner a doctor and get a colonoscopy scheduled for Feb. 6. So I will be departing Louisville either Feb. 9th or 10. I will be paid up here through the 10th. After plenty of time to think about it, I will be heading south on I-65 thanks to Bogons suggestion. Just south of Nashville is the historic town of FRANKLIN. That is the starting point for The Natchez Trace Parkway. I have been on this road for a stre...

I assume there are a few of you wondering what the hell am I doing here in cold KY and not hitting the road again. Sometimes I wonder myself. But the end is in sight. I finally got my health insurance straightened out, I can now legally get sick. So I am setting up a quick scoping, after which I am free to flee. I will be slowly heading to Arizona, just debating the route. I have driven from KY to AZ many times, and I want to try a new route. But I am running...

KENTUCKY is at home tonight playing MISSISSIPPI. Ole Miss is not that bad with a record of 9-4. But still… Kentucky is losing at halftime, 38-36. Judas!
Meanwhile, I am cold. A little while ago the temperature dropped below 30 degrees. I only mention that because it will be Sunday afternoon before we get BACK to 30 degrees. And then, for a couple hours only. Right now the temperature is on a declining trend through tomorrow and on into Thursday,...

Happy New Years to All! I hope 2014 was a great year for everyone, and 2015 to be even better.
The girls and I spent a quiet evening at home listening to football. I say listened, as I do not get any of the ESPN channels here at the camp. Every one of these KOA campgrounds offers TV to campers. There is a coax cable on each site that just plugs into the RV and PRESTO. But each camp has a different set of channels, a selection chosen by some manager a...
