Mammoth Cave, Kentucky (Day 3)

Yesterday evening after Kevin got back from the hotel where he had used the internet to post our blog,  we headed over to John and Ellen's (one of our followers) who made contact with us as they were coming to Mammoth Caves as well and wondered if we would be able to cross paths.  We had a nice evening with them talking about each of our RV travels.  We arranged to go for a hike with them for today.

Wild Cave Tour

Had a totally peaceful sleep last night…didn’t hear a sound. But it did get chilly. We usually leave the furnace off when we go to bed, and only turn it on if one of us gets up in the night to do so. When we got up at 6:30am or so it was 41F (5.5C) in Sherman and the furnace worked for almost an hour to get things reasonably warm.

Mammoth Cave National Park

We are at Mammoth Cave National Park, and we have internet. Sort of.

Bardstown, Kentucky (day 2)

Turned out to be another beautiful blue sky day yesterday, although quite a bit cooler. High was around 58F ( 14C).

Bardstown, Kentucky

Spent yesterday looking for new hiking boots. We both needed a new pair, and the cave tour on Saturday requires that they be "above the ankle" type of boots.

One of the things we like to do is to visit caves. One of the reason we are taking the route we are is to return to Mammoth Cave National Park.

Seymour, Indiana

We made it to North Vernon, Indiana and pulled over a couple of different times in town trying to get internet. Should have headed right for the library. Oh well.

Two hours at the border

It wasn't even that busy. But they decided that Sherman should undergo an x-ray inspection, so we had to wait...and wait....and wait...

Heading for the U.S.

We all ended up having a really nice afternoon and evening yesterday. And yes, Sherman is very happy to have new boots!

New tires

So much for telling you how cheaply we can live! Just spent $930 on tires!

Dundas, Ontario (day 2)...updated 6:30pm

So we had to take Sherman for his "e-test" today, because the government of Ontario has rules that your vehicle has to have an emissions test every two years. Sherman's current plate sticker expires in February, and we will be FAR away from Ontario at that time, so it had to be done before we leave.

Made it through Toronto!

We were only a few minutes late leaving this morning. We had planned on 9:00am, so when we drove out at 9:40am, we figured "yeah, that's not bad".
