Murdo Girl…the road trip..where am I?

We began the day at the Whispering Hills RV Park in Georgetown, Kentucky.

After a beautiful drive…

We stopped for the night at the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in Middlesboro, Kentucky. At least I think it’s in Kentucky. One thing I read said it’s in Virginia. We’re very close to Tennessee too.

Tomorrow morning we will take the dogs for a long walk on one of the many trails in this park that goes on forever. Then we plan to get our home on wheels folded up again and hit the road early. We spotted a Cracker Barrel in Middlesboro and they have a great breakfast. Kip and I believe in replacing every calorie we walk off..with two calories we consume. Food has never tasted so good.

Today, I took a quarter into the truck stop because I know it takes a quarter to weigh yourself on their scales. Some of them have the added feature of a Confucius saying. I chickened out because I saw several people standing around talking by the scales, and who wants to weigh themselves with a bunch of people looking on?

I guess I’ll just have to continue on in blissful ignorance. I might not be ready yet to know how many extra lbs I’ll be taking home with me. I can’t judge by how my clothes fit because everything I own, stretches. I just hope Kip doesn’t make s contest out of it. Before this trip, I had no idea how competitive he is. 

None of that matters anyway. We both feel like we’ve benefited from this trip in countless ways. We feel good!

I’m going to cut this short tonight because this is the second time I’ve written it. The first time was so much better. The park has a lot of trees and the internet connection comes and goes. For some reason I lost the whole thing. I don’t think I could go through that again tonight without screaming.

Puleeze…do not make her scream. I’m finally getting some “scratch the cat” time and I’m drifting off to sleep.

      No restrictions planned. My only regret is that I didn’t bring my crown visor. It would have come in handy!

    I kept thinking that first motor home was an airplane. How convenient.. a motor home park with its own runway.

      I rewrote the blog this morning. I didn’t like it. They have rv parks with landing strips, but they aren’t quite that close to the rv’s.
