We just got back from a week long vacation in Kentucky. I’ve never been so happy to roll up to our front door! Of course, that probably has something to do with the fact that we put more miles on my Pilot last week than we usually put on in a year.
I’ll do a post about everything we did, but I’m sure you are wondering “Why Kentucky?”
Well, why not? Growing up as a military brat, I saw a lot of the U.S., most of it from the back of our station wagon or van. My dad was stationed in California, North Dakota, Alabama, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Virginia while I was growing up. I didn’t go on my first plane trip until high school. So, guess how we got everywhere? Yep, driving. I have been to every state at least once and most of them more than once.
I want my kids to have that. I want them to see all of the different things this great country has to offer. And I want them to realize that not everyone lives in the urban environment we live in.
And I’m sure it will amuse many of you that we went on a vacation to a dry county (I know) where internet access was limited.
Digest that for a moment. No alcohol. No internet. No, I did not go into shock (we took our own beer LOL).
It was a pretty awesome vacation with hiking and swimming and white water rafting and not a single step of running. And Turtleman. Can’t forget Turtleman.
We are home now, the weather is amazing, and I actually went for a run last night.
There really is no place like home!
