We made it to Fort Boonesborough St. Park last night about 4:30. The temp dropped considerably from Georgia and coming thru' the hills of Kentucky. It is on the chilly side, but hope to go for a walk later.
We'll be leaving here tomorrow as soon as we get the 5th wheel winterized and hopefully getting close to Durand, Mi...if not a bit further. Traffic wasn't bad at all yesterday, but we've still got Lexington, Cincinnati and Dayton ahead of us!
Retired One, you asked what type of bird that is...it is a thrush and boy can they run fast!! But they aren't shy.
Put $100 of diesel in the truck yesterday. We got about 11.7 mph coming through the hills, so can't complain. Plus we still had 10 gallons of water on board, so there's about 80 pounds extra weight!
Right how, I'm packing our clothing that we will need while we spend a week with family and friends and clothing for one night in a motel (tomorrow night). Dan is rearranging the basement so General RV hopefully will have an easy time getting to what they need to get to and so Dan can get to area where the "winterizer" system is. With the new 5th wheel, there is no need to run the antifreeze into the fresh water tank and pump it from there. It basically goes right to the pump and then you run your water till everything turns pink. Sounds easier! We'll find out in the a.m.
Catch ya later!
