Continuing slowly north, I decided to revisit the Bourbon country of Kentucky. The drive up from Tennessee was on secondary roads and ran through some beautiful country. Found the RV park in Radcliff, KY., and it was one of the worst parks I have stayed at. It was a section of a very large mobile home park that had to have been built during the 1970's when Fort Knox was full of soldiers during the Viet Nam War. It was truly a dump with hundreds of rundown shabby old mobile homes. I decided to stay as I was tired from the long drive and the location was right for everything I wanted to visit. My friend from Summerdale and Daytona was enroute and we were going to meet up here.
Before Bob arrived, I took a run over to Loretto, KY and revisited the Makers Mark distillery where they make one of the best bourbons.
We went to a nice 1/2 mile dirt stock car race one evening and saw some good spirited races. One more race track visited in my travels.
