Four Roses Distillery – Lawrenceburg, Kentucky

The motorhome is currently parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. My current departure date is scheduled for December 1st.

During this time I’ll be attending to my cataract surgery, cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to the motorhome and Bronco in addition to assisting Mary with her activities. None of these items are particularly exciting to write about…so…instead I’ll be showing Picasa Web Albums from our 682 day, 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States. It was Mary’s second circumnavigation and the sixth for myself.

Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily. So come back tomorrow.

Four Roses Distillery, Lawrenceburg, Kentucky

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

The cataract surgery of my right eye was conducted on October 9th. It appears to have been successful and my last exam on October 24th had it at 20/25, down from 20/200 prior to the surgery. Surgery on my left eye is now scheduled for November 6th.

Yesterday was a cloudy/rainy day and 65 degrees. Forecast for today is partly sunny and 62 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Lexington, Kentucky – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 60 miles from Bardstown to Lexington, Kentucky. We drove about 50 of those miles on the Blue Grass Parkway which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Along the way we stopped to get a first-hand look at one of Kentucky’s most famous products…Bourbon Whiskey. We visited the Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg. You can read about this place by clicking their official website link…

Here are some of the photos I took while there…

At this point in the tour, Mary dropped out fearing too many stairs in the factory. I’m glad she did because I continued on the tour and there were a lot of stairs…

Mary joined us in the tasting room. I tasted none because I was driving and did not want it on my breath. Plus I didn’t want to hurt anyones feelings, but I really do not care for Bourbon. I’m a Canadian Mist man myself.  🙂

Back on the road we ended up at a place where we can get an up-close-and-personal look at another of Kentucky products…Horses! We are parked at the Keeneland Horse Racing Track at Lexington…

Even though it is not racing season, there are still horses here which we’ll get to see this morning and you can read about them tomorrow! You can read about Keeneland by clicking their official website link…

In other news…

I bought our rear view camera systems for the motorhome in 2009. As with all electronics occasionally things act up and they do not work as they should. So was the case recently. Without going into the technical aspects, I’ll simply say 4uCam has great customer service and readily took care of my problem. If you are considering such a system, I highly recommend them to you. You can see their products on their website at http://4ucam.com/
