We have to ride our bikes over to the Mammoth Cave Hotel, but at least we are able to give you all daily updates.
The drive here took us through Lincolns birthplace and boyhood home, so there are a lot of "Abe Lincoln" tourist attractions.
Not Lincoln's boyhood home, but the site of it, now a National Historic Park.
Abe Lincoln tourism anyone?
When we got to the campground, we looked for a site with lots of sun to keep our batteries charged for the next three days. Mostly trees and shade but we found one where we will get a couple of hours of afternoon sun, so that should be enough to keep us charged up. Paid for our site...$17 per night ($51 for three nights) which is pretty good for a National Park.
The next thing we looked for was a Dolphin motorhome. We had been contacted by fellow RV'ers and bloggers John and Ellen, who read our blog and happened to also be heading for Mammoth Cave.
So we said hi to them, and hopefully we'll be able to spend some time with them tomorrow or go for a hike with them on Sunday. They are also doing one of the cave tours tomorrow.
We took Whiskey for a nice hike in the woods.
Ruth and a tree that grew out of a rock.
Whiskey loves going for a walk in the forest.
So then we went to the visitor center and picked up our tickets for tomorrow. When I said we were picking up our tickets for the Wild Cave Tour, the guy asks if our life insurance is paid up. Too funny. Anyhow, we look forward to reporting back to you tomorrow, maybe around supper time. Speaking of time, we are now on Central Time.
