Going South

Well we are finally heading south again. We left the Pigeon Forge area 12:00 today.
After a stop in Seymour,Tn. to buy gas at a price of $1.97 a gallon and a bit of lunch we moved on. We got as far as Resaca,Ga. and are now overnighting at a FlyingJ. It was a beautiful day,still a lot of colors in the trees.

Back Yard

This is the dam at Douglas Lake. It is a very nice back yard for a week. The lake level is low at this time.

After spending the night at the Norton,Va. Walmart which is on top of a mountain. We woke up to 30 degrees outside this morning. We are now at the TVA Campground on Douglas Lake just a few miles from Sevierville,Tennessee.
We will be here until the urge to move on hits us.

Fall Colors

It is something special to drive and see the mountains this time of year. Here are some trees in West Virginia with the breath taking colors. The bad news is you may be in areas where your phone service is not. If you depend on using your phone to get on the internet then it is real bad news. This was the case for us for a week but now things are good again.

We took a tour of the Woodford Reserve Distillery where they produce the L&G Bourbon Whiskey. Very interesting tour. It is located in Versailles,Kentucky.

Corn Mash

This is one of the 3 vats where the corn mash is working. The large vats are made of cypress wood. They never completly empty them. They leave part of it in so they can mix some of the old with the new. This way the bourbon all taste the same.

The Barrels

The barrels are made on the property. They are made of oak and are flame charded inside. The barrels are used only once then the are sold. They said if it is used more then one time the bourbon starts to take on the taste of the wood.


Here are the barrels in storage for the aging process. These are in a enviroment controled building to keep the wood from drying out. They produce about 115 barrels a week. They are a small distllery.

On the road again

After being by the Barren river at the Tailwaters campground we are on the road again. It was a good 3 weeks there with a lot of rest and relaxing. The bad part I couldn't get online since the Verizon Network is dead there. We are going to be here at the Kentucky Horse Park for 3 days visiting with our daughter Vicki and family which live in Lexington.

Being Lazy

We are in the Barren River Tailwaters Campground. We like this COE Park because,this time of year it is free. They have water and a dump station so it is a good deal. Nice and peaceful.
