Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

Family Visit in Louisville & Clarksville

23 August-25 August 2012

Short drive to our next campsite in Clarksville, IN just across the Ohio river from Louisville,Ky. We are staying at the KOA which is convenient for family visits.

I grew up in this area and graduated HS from Jeffersonville in 1959. The HS is slowing deteriorating and some years ago moved to Clarksville. While in the area I rode Mother around to our old residences and Daddy's hardware stores. Brought back memories.

I have two cousins in Clarksville, Doug and Joe and their wives Valerie and Phyllis. Did not get to see Valerie this trip as she was working most of time, but did have good visits with Doug, Joe and Phyllis.

It was good seeing everyone.

First night we met Mother, Abby and her daughter Lauryn for dinner. Lauryn brought her boyfriend Alex who seems very nice.

Prior to dinner, Doug stopped by motorhome for a nice visit.
