Kentucky Fried Chicken

Day 17 and 18
May 14th and 15th
Moving to Levi Jackson State Park
London, KY

Moving day and we are once again parkers because they needed a couple more volunteers, so up and ready to go with the leaders along with three other  caravaners plus the leaders.  All jobs on the caravan, including the leaders are volunteers, this keeps the cost down.  The leaders expenses are paid for by the rest of the caravaners and they are also audited by fellow caravaners.  In this case there are 24 rigs (plus the leader) so the leaders expenses were divided by 24.  This is the only way we can afford to go to so many places.  We have also been on a caravan through Newfoundland,  the entire length of Baja and several caravans in British Columbia.  If you missed our blog one year ago we were starting a caravan in British Columbia, just look back on the previous blogs of May 18, 2011.

Blogs are such a great way to look back on your travels.  Even though I'm not a great blogger and have trouble staying current I absolutely love this journal of our travels.  Now and then I will re-read a blog and will remember something else that we did and I just go back and update it.

Another small town close to us is Corbin, KY, and Colonel Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum and the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken.  The Cafe has been restored and is on the National Register of Historical Places.  Colonel Sanders wanted his customers to see the cleanliness of his restaurant so he had an open kitchen enclosed with glass and everything was white so he could see right away if it was not kept clean.  He also had a motel connected to the restaurant which is gone now.  We are not really a fan of Kentucky Fried Chicken but we did have dinner there and is was pretty good once you got all the skin off.

Day 18, May 15th was a free day so we did laundry, cleaning a little grocery shopping and just sitting around visiting with friends, and ending the day with a campfire.

Have a great day
