Renfro Valley

I just realized I'm out of order and published day 22 before this one.

Day 20 and 21
May 17 and 18
Renfro Valley RV Park
Renfro, KY

This will be the last stop for our caravan and we will be driving a whopping 35 miles.  We are so laid back that we had our driver's meeting at 0900, the parkers left at 1000 and we left at 1100 for that big drive up the road.

Renfro Valley is Kentucky's country music capital with over 60 year of entertainment, of  music, signing, dancing, and comedy.  We will be going to a concert tomorrow night.

Today after getting settled in we headed for Brea College and a tour of the college.  Brea College is the number one Liberal Arts and Crafts four year college in the US.  Along with all their regular classes each student must spend ten hours a week working in a craft such as woodworking, weaving, ceramics, broom making.  These are lost arts that they are bring back.  Many of the students continue their craft as a hobby after graduation.

May 18th
Later we attended a show in the Old Barn featuring young performers that sounded like stars.  This was a tribute to Country Stars including Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Reba, Dolly, The Judds and a few more.  They were fantastic performers.

There are other places we have visited like White Hall, Fort Boonesborough and a few others that I will blog about later.

That's it for now
Safe travels to all

Nancy and Joe
