Grandma Says, “Hi”

We’re at Grandma’s RV Park in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.  We drove straight through from Holly, Michigan, a 420 mile trip, and arrived at around five o’clock.  After unhooking the mule and plugging in the power we headed up the street to fill our tanks; the truck first and then our bellies.  For the truck we chose BP at $3.99.9 per gallon and for us we chose El Napal Mexican restaurant.  All three of us came home satisfied.

We stopped four times along our journey – once to tape up the bedroom slide awning that got eaten by a tree limb coming out of Warren and Shirley’s road, twice for fuel and rest stops, and once for lunch and rest stop.  So much for an incident free travel day.  We still made it in less than eight hours. 

Today we’ll drive the rest of the way to Lebanon, Tennessee.  It’s only three hours and we’ll cross the “International” Time Zone; that is, we’ll crossover to Central Time.  Matthew and Jackie’s baby sitter has had a sick child so Matthew ended up staying home from work yesterday.  Grandma has volunteered to sit the kids this afternoon so we’ll arrive and get set up and then head out for a grand child fix.  The Domestic Engineering duties will begin earlier than anticipated.

Well, it’s time to do that which we have in common with the Prevost owners, dump the tanks, and then hitch up the mule to the wagon and head for the promised land.  See you next from the Central Time Zone.

May God Bless  - - - - - - - -


  1. 420 miles! You guys are getting into bad habits!

  2. WOW! 420 miles! Hope those miles were on good roads. I could not imagine drive 400+ miles on roads like I-10 through Louisiana. Travel safe and take time to smell the roses..
