Traveling along Interstate 65 in central Kentucky, it’s easy to appreciate the beautiful rolling hills, picturesque farms, and friendly small towns along the way. But many people don’t know that even more beauty is hidden beneath the earth’s surface. This is Cave Country, and the entire region is honeycombed with a series of caves, some […]

Ever since we got back from our trip we have been busy playing catch up. While we were gone I only dealt with the most pressing emails so I had a big backlog of them to wade through when we got home. Meanwhile, Terry had a lot of paperwork to do, separating receipts from the […]

After our very long day driving through West Virginia that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, we were both exhausted and slept very well at the Hampton Inn in Wytheville, Virginia. One thing Terry and I discovered on the trip is that king size beds seem to be the norm in hotel rooms these days. […]
