    We use to publish a monthly newsletter but decided to step up and do a blog instead. Just like our newsletter we will update this "newsletter" about once a month.
    Each month we bring you news from our little town of Coupeville, WA and happenings around the island we live on.
    We hope you enjoy our blog and we'd encourage you to sign up for email notification since it doesn't update all that frequently.

Day 33 – Time Travelers

Yesterday we continued our journey through Kentucky and crossed a time zone heading west.

We’re not sure what happened to yesterday’s pictures but they were kind of pixelated. You can always click on any picture to get a bigger view of it.

We traveled 240 uneventful miles west starting out in a rain storm. After about an hour the skies cleared and the temperature started to rise.

Driving through Kentucky we saw many beautiful horse farms. This is not a very good picture but sort of representative of what we saw.

The people of Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky must really enjoy mowing yards because we’ve see a bunch of really big ones.

We arrived in Central City, Kentucky and set up camp at Western Kentucky Campground.

As you can see from the picture there ain’t a whole hell of a lot going on around here. We went into town to get some groceries and gas and found out that this was the home of the Everly Brothers. There was supposed to be a monument to them but we couldn’t find it. We drove way out Everly Brothers Drive but all we found was a cemetery with some Everly headstones but not the brothers. Mike who owns the campground said that the memorial had been moved but we still couldn’t find it.

By the way, we pointed out in a picture the other day that we saw nuclear power plants but according to Mike, who works for the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority), they are coal fired plants, even worse! We saw a huge one today and they sure do belch out a bunch of nasty stuff into our environment.

Ken keeps saying that “we’ve set up camp” and “we are camping” but Marilyn says “we’re traveling”, I guess she’s right.

After a long hard day of driving nothing like a gourmet meal of “filet la tube”!

Tomorrow we “travel” to another new state, Missouri. We’ll be staying two nights in Van Buren, MO in what we’re hopping will be a nicer campground.

  1. I wish I would have known beforehand that you were going to be in Central City. I would have met you there and shown you around. I live about 30 miles from there. I would have taken you out to eat at a very good restaurant on Lake Malone. If you do this again maybe post an itinerary and people that are following you can meet you and help out with things. I wish we had cooler weather for you. Happy journeys.

  2. I might also point out because you are on a schedule you might be touring. No matter what you call it, you are still enjoying the good life.
