Location: Campbellsville, KY (High 87, Low 60)
After a great summer, we were packed up and pulling out of our summer site right on schedule, around 10:30 on Thursday morning.
Thursday’s travel day was just the way we like it – uneventful. The section on 287 that goes by NYC was busy as usual, but since it was the middle of the day, it was moving along smoothly. I saw from the signs that we were about 30 miles from the city.
But other than being busy with traffic and long, the trip was fine. We’ve taken the same route several times now and it was even starting to get a familiar feel. By 5 pm, we were settled into our spot for the evening.
Friday morning we wanted to get an earlier start. This ended up being a great move. We were traveling on new roads, and knew we were traveling through a mountainous region. I got an inkling of what was coming when I saw a break in the mountains up ahead and realized we were heading in that direction. I didn’t get a good picture of it – you can kind of see the break in the tree line off in the distance. We continued climbing and sure enough, we were going there.
It was beautiful, but at the same time, we knew – what goes up, must come down!
That was the beginning of our up and down, curvy road ride for the rest of the trip.
We haven’t yet done a lot of steep downgrades so they were nerve-wracking.
We were so glad to land for the evening!
The best part of the day came after dinner! Dessert at Steak and Shake!!
Yesterday morning was our third and final travel day. We were also arriving in a new state for us – Kentucky! Since this blog post is already pretty long and picture laden, I will save the rest of the story for tomorrow.
But suffice to say, we have landed and are settled into our site for the next three and a half months.
Today, we are going to check out Campbellsville.
