Wrong Way Corrigan

On June 30, 2011 By

This is me from about to miss my third turn of the day. I am generally better than this and we all double check each other, so the on only injury was to my ego.  No turns were missed, just an attempt.

We had another good day today with 49 miles if [...]

Kentucky Crop Circle

On June 29, 2011 By

Ok, maybe this is not a crop circle, nor is it visible from space, but it is cool and a little bit of good ol’ boy art, in my humble opinion.

We had a great day today.  The hills were modest, the skies were sunny, it wasn’t too humid.  What is not to like? [...]

We stopped on the way to Bardstown to talk to a resident and to catch our breath.  Billy Thompson, (left) with Rich, was only too happy to happy to tell abt his career raising Tennesee Walking Horses.

Today didn’t have any cafes along the way so we had to pack snacks that we ate [...]

Bruce Gordon Comes Through

On June 27, 2011 By

Rich has been having some troubles his bike. Designer & builder Bruce Gordon was very helpful and sent parts for free.  From all of us, way to go, Bruce!

We had a little rain today, but otherwise a partially cloudy day of 51 miles for what should have been rolling hills, but still had [...]

We stated from Boonville this morning with threatening skies to meet up with our pal Jerry who was staying @ a B&B down the road about two miles. As soon as we got there the skies opened up to a hard downpour.  We watched it together under some trees for a while and then [...]

We had a shorter riding day to charge our batteries after some hard days in the mountains, only 19 miles.  Even though it was short, the hills were steep.

Several highlights:  the drive through everything store that has everything you need, sandwiches, tobacco, and, of course fireworks. Also, they run the adjacent tanning parlor. [...]

Hildago Finds a Friend

On June 25, 2011 By

Hildago has been lonely the past two weeks since there have been no wild mustangs out here, save for the 8-cylinder variety. So, Rich & I were happy to make a quick stop about 6 miles before Booneville, KY, to allow Hildago to talk to some of the locals @ the fence next to [...]

Bubby for Constable!

On June 24, 2011 By

OK, even though I have scanned his Facebook page, I am not informed Mr. Adkin’s qualifications, but I gotta go with Bubby.

Another good hot, sweaty day with 56 miles of steep hills from Pippa Passes (sleeping on the rec. room floor) to a wonderful grassy Corps of Engineers camoground @ Buckhorn Lake. All [...]

Coal Country

On June 23, 2011 By

See the photo for a look @ how surface mining looks close up.  Not an improvement in my view to an otherwise beautiful area.  End of editorial. A lot of the cars & trucks around here have bumper stickers saying ‘Coal, It Keeps the Lights On’.

We had another hot humid day today with [...]

Hello Kentucky!

On June 22, 2011 By

I have Verizon coverage, but not 3G, so I am behind in the photo uploads. Check tomorrow to see about pix of the inside of the caboose as well as dramatic shots of the inside of Moore’s Motel in Elkhorn City. Let me know if you can tell which us the B&B & which [...]
