It’s too bad we had to leave this morning — we found out the park was holding a guitar, fiddle, and banjo contest. We also talked to a guy whose daughter was mauled by a dog when she was 8 and had to get 140 stitches. He had no sympathy for the dogs in Kentucky.
As we were leaving and about to pay for our site, the guy at the kiosk said not to tell anyone and to save our money for breakfast.
While we were there a local suggested we take the 62 part of the way to Bardstown, a route Google Maps also suggested. We thought about it and decided to do it since it would save us 25 miles.
Turning off route onto Constantine-Vertrees Rd. Several abandoned barns and shacks made it kind of creepy. It then went in and out of farmland. Ran into some friendly dogs as well. Departing from the ACA route was a nice change of pace.
We had no luck finding pasta sauce at the gas station and the lady working there made it seem like there wasn’t a single store open in town (there was, we found out later by the campsite). So we ate delicious carne aside burritos.
Things we saw while dining:
-A guy on a buggy that whipped his horse really hard to make it run the red light.
-Rednecks freaking out over what happened in the newest Harry Potter movie.
-Tons of clean muscle cars and motorcycles roaring by.
