It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Cold Kentucky.

Our Location today is Crittenden, Kentucky, USA.

Even though it didn’t seem like we were overly busy yesterday by the time we’d taken our showers we simply crawled between the sheets and went to sleep. Yes we slept all night and when we woke up just after 7:30 this morning we had a lot of work to do. I hadn’t packed away the computers nor gotten any of the things we normally carry in the truck packed. The temperature had cooled to the low 50s so when it came to finish putting things away outside this morning I had to do something I haven’t done in a long time. I had to wear a jacket. 

Even with the delay we were still pulling out of River Plantation RV Resort onto highway 441 at exactly 9:30. The weather was clear but crisp to the point we had to warm the inside of the truck for a while. Even though we weren’t leaving the warmth we experienced while down south it was still sad to be leaving the uniqueness of the Pigeon Forge area. 

A half hour later and we were entering the traffic of westbound I-40 towards Knoxville. We used the I-640 to I-75 saving us mileage and time. The traffic was heavy and there were some slower trucks as they climbed through the mountain passes with their heavy loads otherwise through the remainder of the day traffic would not get slower than the speed limit. It wasn’t long before we were saying good bye to Tennessee and hello Kentucky. 

The scenery was captivating and neither of us felt the need to stop so we continued on until we saw the sign advertising Cracker Barrel at the Berea. We followed the signs but when we saw that there was no way of fitting in their lot we thought we’d park at Walmart around the corner. This was where we really got a shock. The wind was blowing so hard that the jackets we were wearing didn’t feel too warm. We walked half way back to Cracker Barrel when we spotted a Taco Bell. Since it had been some time since we’d eaten there and we were freezing cold because of the wind that’s where we ate. Before leaving the area we also visited the Walmart for some bread and milk to hold us over until we get home. 

We still had 96 more miles for today’s destination and after traveling through a long construction zone we were just starting to relax. That was when we started seeing something we’ve never seen before School Buses using the interstate to bring kids back home. Remember when you could just walk to school? 
Shrubs are blossoming along the roadsides.
It was nearly 4:00 when we arrived at what used to be the old Cincinnati South KOA. The manager said that they have had rain every day for the last two weeks. After getting all set up and having supper we watched the local news that showed some dry but very cool temperatures heading into the weekend. 

We are slowly making our way home but did get 258.7 miles closer today. Tomorrow we’ll check out the local area. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
