Sunday, August 25 - Moutardier COE Campground, KY - 158.1 Miles Today, 14,305.3 For the Trip
We did have a little excitement after dark last night. It started with a dog barking somewhere in the campground. The barks changed to yips, then a howl. A few minutes later the fragrant odor of skunk drifted into the trailer. It was bad enough in my trailer; can't imagine what it was like for the dog or the trailer he was tied to!
I spent most of the day traveling east on secondary roads through farm & ranch country, passing by the Mammoth Cave National Park & into the Moutardier Corps of Engineer's campground. Not too bad a deal - water & electric for $11.00 (with the senior pass). While the campground it near empty, there are reserved signs on almost every site for next weekend. I forgot that it is a 3 day Labor day weekend, and the last chance many get to go camping. Should be interesting finding a site. I guess I'll worry about that when it comes.
For now, this is a very nice stop. I'm in site A50, right on the lake (there are non hookup sites between mine & the lake, but they are low enough that you don't notice them. Other than a few biting flies, it is a great location.
I noticed a structure that looked like a shorter Washington Monument along US 68 near Fairview, KY & stopped to see what it was. It is the birthplace of Jefferson Davis. Took a couple of photos, and drove on.
I stopped in Sweeden (yes, that is how they spell it) for some groceries - will be having steak & rice for dinner.
Until Tomorrow -
