Our ‘ol Kentucky Home

well for the next 3 months anyway….

We left Cumming, GA after getting the wiring harness fixed in the Subaru, heading north on 75.  Getting tired of that particular interstate and are looking forward to somewhere new!  It was an easy trip. Not too much rain.  Since Mark is more comfortable driving the rig now, I can sing along to the radio.  Mark tends to like mostly conversation. Those who know me can attest that I like to sing and act like an idiot while riding. (well not just when I’m in the car. It is pretty much all the time)  He is a very tolerant man and is happy to have “a self entertaining wife”.IMG_3180

We arrived to our new digs a little more than a week ago.  I have landed my first Workamper gig at a great family owned campground Cave Country RV Campground in Cave City, KY. For those who don’t know that term: Workamping is working part time in exchange for full site hook ups: water, electric, sewer, trash. This place includes cable and wifi as well! Bonus 🙂 The owner is a super nice guy and has been patient while I learn the ropes. Most of the job is taking phone calls, making reservations, and checking folks in. The balance is making sure the sites all stay neat and tidy.

The other workamper couple, Jimmy and Julie are our new neighbors and have been very kind and helpful.  They have two smaller dogs: Smokey & Bandit.  Samson finally has some regular friends to hang out with at the dog park.IMG_6900

 

BTW the profile picture of this post is the view we have out our front window in the morning.

I can say that it has be a bit of a culture shock coming to such a small town.  We are 35 minutes north of Bowling Green (the big city).  We are going to be cooking in a LOT!  There are not many places nearby.  There is one place  El Mazatlan down the road less than a mile.  The owners really have their act together.  Very clean, wait staff are all in white shirts with black bow ties and slacks.  The food is not your typical mexican fare.  Although they have those items as well.  They run specials on things like lettuce wrapped ceviche. The atmosphere is very unique and apparently they have opened four other successful locations. Love seeing a small business do it right and obviously doing very well.

You might ask why in the heck are you staying in such a small town for so long? Well, I’m glad you asked.  First, it was the closest workamper gig that I had been offered. (we still have to go back to Atlanta one more time for Cody’s wedding in July)  Second, the campground is 6 miles away from Mammoth Cave.  We figured going thru 530 acres of underground adventure would take a number of weekends. It will be good for the blood pressure I guess, not having traffic and all the city noise for a while. Plus, I hope to check off a bucket list item in May.  Hoping to score tickets to the Kentucky Derby! Get a tacky hat and drink some mint juleps…stay tuned.
