Hi Charles,

Love Lexington. My daughter is finishing her junior year at UK. Looks like you know the area well. Maybe you can sneak over. Easy drive on the Bluegrass Pkwy!

Congrats on our Casita!

Dean

And a second site. Of the 2 available sites, site 38 is the better one than 20.

We just made reservations for the My Old Kentucky Home Dinner Train for Friday June 10th at 6 anybody else planning on making a reservation, give them my last name "Hawkins" and they will seat us together. Just to inform you it was a little pricey at 85 per person for dinner 2 hour train ride. I had to do it since I've lived here my whole life and have never been on the train so it was about time.

Sounds cool! We are coming in a day earlier than planned, as we have to leave on Sunday now. It turns out I am teaching the next week.

I'd kick myself if I missed this rally. Car tires are freshly rotated with a new spare and the oil has been changed...We're in ship-shape to go.

I'll be in #20 with my Anderson Leveler, and if that doesn't make things steady, the Bourbon will. I'll just imagine being on a vessel.

Looking forward to a great time, and I'll be booking with the Hawkins party on the dinner train.

Can't wait to meet you, Cindy, and having an awesome weekend with like-minded folk!

Who might be interested in me looking into reservations for the tour?

CindyL
Me! Absolutely. Saturday during the day might be the best time. That's the full-capacity of your rally, which would have the most potential sign-ups.

Talking

Welcome, Hidalga!

Site #20 is a stinker, so bring lots of things to raise the front of your Scamp. When we walked the campground a couple of weeks ago, double-checking our original site review, Kevin and I thought that if the person in #20 had a small enough camper and could not level their camper enough, they could double-up with another site, if they can boondock. Hopefully, you can do that with your Scamp if it cannot be leveled enough. (I am not sure of the space in our site, or I would absolutely invite you, but if we have the space, consider yourself invited, if you can't get your Scamp leveled in #20. Kevin thought the camper in that spot might be able to place their camper sideways and have it easier to level than the back-in position.)

Looking forward to this weekend, even though it has been curtailed for us (Darn it, my one-week intensive summer class begins on the following Monday, so we have to leave on Sunday! Hopefully, you all can do without us on Sunday. We added a night on the front of our trip since we have to leave earlier than planned, so hopefully, we can go to the "My Old KY Home" musical.). We have threatened for years to host a rally, and when we saw Bardstown last summer, we both said, "This is it." There is so much to do there!

We were in Bardstown, because my hobby is genealogy. My 5th great-grandfather moved to Bardstown from SW PA during the Whiskey Rebellion. His whiskey still is now part of the Jim Beam company. My husband gets a kick out of teasing one of his school board members (Kevin is a school supt.) that since he works for Jim Beam, he really works for the supt's wife's whiskey company.

I discovered that the weekend of the Bourbon egg meet is also the Stephen Foster Festival (The Stephen Foster Festival | The Stephen Foster Story | Bardstown, Kentucky). That is not a bad thing unless you are camping near the golf course and don't like the sound of the balls being hit since there is a golf meet. It also will likely make touring the My Old Kentucky Home Museum, Oscar Getz Whiskey Museum and Civil War/early Bardstown Museum more crowded, as well as the distilleries. On the good side, it gives you more options for things to do. We plan to change the time of the supper though now, in case you wish to attend evening events for the Festival.

Kevin and I will be offering suggestions of things to do this weekend. We visited last year for the first time, so we have not done everything ourselves.

This is the info for the festival in Bardstown on Saturday, June 11. If people want to go to the 8 p.m. show, we can set the potluck dinner for 5 p.m. behind our trailer. I'll check with the golf course tomorrow to see if their tourney will be completed by 3 p.m. like they originally thought. That would give us access to the park picnic tables south of the clubhouse. More to come!

Eggs A La Bourbon is just around the corner! Cindy and I will be arriving on Wednesday, June 8, and will be in Site 2 just to the right of the start of the right hand loop. Weíll be in the Bigfoot Silver Cloud!


Plans are wide open for most things this weekend. Several of us will be going to the Dinner Train on Friday evening at 6 p.m. If you are interested, you need to go online to find events in Bardstown and make a reservation. The dinner/ride is pretty pricey at $85 per person, but I know at least 6 people are doing this.


Saturday, June 11, is the Stephen Foster Festival in Bardstown, so lots of activities will be going on in and around the downtown. That would also be a good day for people to take a distillery tour. It is best to call ahead and make a reservation for the tours since walk-ins often have to wait for the next available group or spot. Cindy and I plan to go to Makerís Mark Distillery on Saturday morning and hope to get to the Jim Beam Distillery on Saturday afternoon. Makerís Mark is about 30 minutes southeast of the campground and Jim Beam is about the same distance west of Bardstown. Other brand distilleries are scattered just south of the campground, too.


Saturday evening is our free-range potluck dinner at 5 p.m. No program is plannedÖ just time to meet and visit with new/old friends! We set the time a bit early in case people want to plan ahead for buying tickets to the My Old Kentucky Home/Stephen Foster musical at 8 p.m. Cindy and I will furnish hot dogs and buns for everyone, so youíll have to bring your own meat if hotdogs arenít your thing. Also, please bring a dish to pass and bring your own plates and silverware. We will furnish lemonade, but other drinks are up to you. We plan to eat at the picnic tables on the golf course clubhouse grounds just behind site 2 if the weather is OK. Otherwise, there is no shelter nearby available (it was rented a year ago!) so we might have to make alternate plans. (Lots of umbrellas and lawn chairs?)


When we walked the campground sites about a month ago, I paid special attention to the location of electrical and water hookups. It looks like most sites will need at least 25 feet of hose and power cord, but be prepared for runs up to 40 feet. Also, a water faucet splitter would be helpful since the water sites are often shared. Donít forget to bring things to help level your trailers, too, since the sites are smooth but NOT level.
See you all soon!

Kevin and Cindy
