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…

Here we are on the Blue Grass Parkway…


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…


Here’s the dinette window photo…


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…

Enjoying interesting places is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

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

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures 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!

A Slow Day In Never-Never Land…

In yesterday’s Blog entry I described helping Mary with her yard sale…something which I swore 16 years ago I would never-never do again after departing my house to begin my full-time RVing lifestyle. Due to her inexperience with such matters..she made it a two-day event. Shoulda made it a one day thing as there were few customers yesterday.

Since it was so slow activity day…I decided to work on a couple of my to-do list items. First job was to put on a new steering wheel cover on my Bronco. After 25 years the sun was finally taking its toll…

Online I found and ordered a product called Wheelskins and went to work…

The directions said installation time was about 60 minutes. That’s if you know what you’re doing. In my case…being the meticulous type…installation proved to be three hours. The instructions also indicated “Tight is Right”…so after each stitch  you must pull very heartily to end up with a tight fit. My hands are still kind of sore this morning…but I’m pleased with the results. Good for another 25 years…

The second job of my day was changing out the rear-view camera on the motorhome. The company sent me a free replacement after I advised them that out unit had moisture inside of the glass covering the lens. I blame this on poor sealant techniques at the factory…so I went ahead and applied my own sealant on top of the factory sealant.

Hopefully we’ll have no more moisture-inside-of-the-camera problems.

When we completed our day…Mary said never-never again about her yard sale. Hopefully we will never-ever do another one again!
