Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!

We didn't hook up the thermometer last night but the radio station I was listening to before I got up at 6:30 a.m. said it was 33F (0.5C). I don't know where the radio station was from though.

By the time we left Tanbark Campground at 9 a.m. it was 59F (15C) with a hazy sun. We had a long drive of 362 miles. Other than some construction in Louisville and an accident on the Cincinnati bypass which tied us up for about 15 minutes, we had a good but tiring trip.

Here are some photos that I took along the way.

The flowering trees were out in abundance on Music Hwy (I-40).

The loop around Nashville

Welcome to Kentucky!

And one of the first things I saw was a horse fence

Heading NE on I-65 towards Louisville

We passed the exit for Fort Knox

Construction in Louisville

Pretty flowers at a Kentucky rest area

I'm sure there's a reason for this name for this state park but I would have thought they could pick a better one

This sign tells you you're in the south when you get south of Coventry, KY

Back in Ohio

Crossing the Ohio River

Accident on the 275 loop around Cincinnati

This doesn't look good!

We made it!

We arrived at Cedarbrook Campground at Lebanon, OH after a time zone change at about 4:15 p.m. We're back in the Eastern time zone. They have good wifi throughout the park here so we don't need to set up the internet satellite and it looks like we get enough channels that we don't have to set up the TV either. We'll be visiting while we're here so not watching TV as much.

Here's our site - it's one of the new ones they put in for big rigs at the back of the park

That's it for today! Oh, and we did reach a high of 66F (19C).


  1. Have a good Easter with family!

  2. Good morning and Happy Easter to you, too! I see you've traveled fairly far since leaving Poche's here in Louisiana. I thought about you and your husband on our Photography's class to Lake Martin. I see you have a Fifth Wheel and a Dodge pickup...just like us. We've got a MobileScout and a Navy Blue Dodge Dualy, super-cab...makes for much better pulling than when I had a trailer hitch type years ago. Well, have a continued safe journey!

  3. Happy Easter to you and Gordon

    You're suddenly very close to HOME !

  4. Hey Sandra! You sure did travel a looonngg way today. Whew, I was tired reading about your day. :)

    Wanted to tell you about Big Bone Lick State Park in KY. We've stayed there because we have friends in Florence. We also thought the name was a bit unusual, to say the least. It comes from finding the remains (big bones) of animals from the Ice Age - mammoths and such. There was natural salt in that area and the animals came to lick the salt and would get stuck in the mire. There's even a small exhibit about these animals. Now, you know the rest of the story. :)

    Safe travels.
