Staying in Kentucky

Currently we are staying in Campbellsville Kentucky at the Green River Stables Horse Camp & RV Park while Misty does some seasonal work with Amazon.

Amazon pays for a full hookup lot while working for them, which really helps out.

When we first pulled in we were the second RV to reside in the newest section of the park, but that did not last long and now it is full to capacity.

We are the second RV to move into the newest section.
It is a beautiful place to stay and the owners/operators of the RV park, Darrell & Erin Wise, are second to none.

They welcome you like family and make sure you have everything you need to have a comfortable stay at their park.

Right next door you have the Green River Lake State Park that offers beautiful views of the lake and twenty one miles of trails to hike between twenty three trails.  They also have a nice playground, that the kids seem to love, for some reason.

We love to get out and walk the trails, but some of them you really have to watch your step since the trails are also used by horses and their riders.  They like to leave little surprises for you, that are not so little.

One of the suspects that we believe left us a surprise on the last trail we walked on.
My sister Brenda would love it here.  On the weekends it looks like you are in the wild west due to all the horses in the park.  They come by the tens and twenties with their horse hauler campers just to ride the trails in the park.

Angel is not impressed with the horses and voices her opinion every time she sees one.  That is about the only time she barks, is when she sees a horse.  Now she is even grumpier since we took her to the vet to get fixed.

Another nice thing about all the horses and ponies, is that the kids get to ride them too.

Also while staying in Kentucky we took in some of the local attractions.  I do not know how many times we have driven through Elizabethtown Kentucky and passed the signs for My Old Kentucky Home State Park, but never stopped to visit it.

Its biggest claim to fame is that Stephen Foster got his inspiration for the song "My Old Kentucky Home" while visiting the Federal Hill Mansion.  He is also known for the song Camptown Races and many many more.

Trick or Treat was also celebrated while we were in Kentucky and the kids got their night of running around asking for candy.  Since our RV park did not have a lot of kids and a lot of the people work evening shift at Amazon, we had to venture out into Campbellsville to get our treats.

Sometimes though, we just kick back and take it easy and enjoy the day.  The kids are catching on to this too, as you can see below.

While we were here Ian turned seven and so we had a little birthday party for him.
Happy Birthday to Ian.
I'm not sure, but I think he was excited to get one of his presents anyway.  Mostly he got cloths, but the final present put a smile on his face.

Well I'm going to get ready to finish the blog out now, because it is Saturday and on Saturday Brother's BBQ serves their burnt ends, which are the best we have ever had.

"What are burnt ends?", you ask, they are the burnt ends of the beef brisket that are cut off before the brisket is sliced and served.  If done right, like the way Brother's BBQ does them, they have the perfect amount of fat and crispiness and are a delicacy.
Best burnt ends we have ever had!

Those are just a few of the things LivelyRV has been up to since staying in Campbellsville Kentucky, but now it is time for us to get ready and go eat our burnt ends.

We thank God everyday for enabling us to live this type of lifestyle and being able to experience such the great things that we do while on this life changing adventure.

So go buy yourself a RV and hit the road fulltime like us.  What better way to see what America has to offer in the way of experiencing different people, food, and places.  We would not change our way of life for anything.

God bless you all and may He watch over you and your families.

If you like our blog please follow it.  I was talking to a fellow a couple weeks ago about how we were upset about a business we used and their customer service.  I said I was going to blog about it and let everyone know not to use them.  When asked how many followers we had I said 18.  I do not think they were threatened at all with my threat.  If we had a bigger following though, well maybe I could make them trimble in the knees.

Until next time.

Don, Misty, and Kids...
