Kentucky to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York and New Hampshire…. HOME ๐Ÿก

We have been traveling now for about 6-7 days and doing 300 to 350 miles a day. I’m getting tired and I’m the rider, David must be really tired doing all the driving. The scenery is looking familiar, greener and more like home. Miscellaneous pictures along the way.

Even Bert, Cookie Monster and Elmo travel!!
Mom and me

Finally made it home โค๏ธ

Saturday Jim Beam tour๐Ÿท

We wanted to go to Jim Beam, I checked out the website. I found out I needed reservations so I suggested we go anyway and maybe someone canceled or they save some for the general public. There was 1 space at 1pm so I mentioned this and the ticket man said he will fit us in. Yeah!!

We finally got to the campground around 5pm and 413 miles later. We were pretty tired to say the least. Early night….oh no our living room slide won’t go out…grrr. Hard to find someone who can fix it on Memorial weekend. So we are living in a really small house till we get home where we will have it fix.

Kansas to Missouri

Continued on I 70

Today we did about 300 miles. We settled in a campground in Columbia Missouri. Cottonwood rv park cute small, and staff very friendly. Didn’t get alot of pictures, the weather didn’t cooperate, it rained about 3/4 th of the trip. Oh well ๐ŸŒง

Lot of pasture land
Beautiful farms
I think every town has a water tower
Missouri River

Another night closer to New Hampshire and a 3 day weekend in Kentucky. Headed to Louisville, I’m excited to go to the bat museum and factory.

Leaving Colorado and headed to Kansas

Today was our longest drive so far, 343 miles. I am so tired and really need a few days for down time. Unfortunately I forgot this weekend Memorial weekend and I’m aging a hard time finding a place to stay. Grrrr! Tomorrow is a 299 mile trek and we do have reservations. Phew ๐Ÿ˜Š

Scenery… farms!
Windmills
Yeah… Kansas!
Make a wish ๐Ÿ’•
Clouds looking like rain
Raining on the way ๐Ÿ˜ช

The last hour of the long, long 434 mile drive it rained. I didn’t take many pictures today cause I spent most of the ride looking for a place to stay in or near Louisville, Kentucky. ๐Ÿ˜ญ no luck…

Tonight we are staying at the Salina KOA and have changed the zone time…central time. It is raining and sound awesome on the roof…. zzzz.

Colorado…

Continuing to go through Colorado, today was a short mileage day, 265 miles but still timely due to the mountains. Silt going to Limon, KOA and continuing to follow I 70.

As a RVers you try to avoid tunnels so it seems funny when you have to go through one.
