Leaving Nashville on Interstate 65 North, like a kid in a National Lampoon Vacation movie scene, I am looking forward to seeing the “Welcome To Kentucky” highway sign.
Here is where states make a statement about themselves. Georgia, The Peach State. Arizona, The Grand Canyon State. Kentucky, The Home Of Abraham Lincoln. I did not know that. I have always just thought of Kentucky as The Bluegrass State.
Mammoth Cave National Park is still plenty miles down the road and our Room Saver comes in quite handy with a $39.99 room for the night at Microtel Inn in Bowling Green.
I fall asleep with nice memories from family trips on the road. However, I miss the bed jumping and hearing from the backseat, “Mom, tell Kai to stop looking at me.”
