Current Location: Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky
Malcolm realized he hadn’t blogged in a bit, so here’s a little mid-day catch-up for you.
On Sunday, we headed down to Nicholasville and attended Nicholasville United Methodist Church with Malcolm’s Aunt Margaret and Uncle Jerry. It was a great service. Afterwards, we headed back to the trailer to change into more comfortable clothes and to get ready for visitors.
Aunt Margaret and Uncle Jerry rode up with their son Lary and their son-in-law, Dale and his wife Sue. The seven of us ate lunch outside and enjoyed the weather. We gave tours of the trailer to Dale and Sue as well as showed off our new t-shirt quilt. After everyone left, we cleaned up and headed to the store to pick up a few things. The rest of the afternoon and evening we took it easy.
On Monday, we took our time slowly preparing the trailer for the move to the Kentucky Horse Park. We wanted to make sure everyone had pretty much cleared out of the Horse Park after the holiday weekend, so we took advantage of Whispering Hills’ 2:00 PM checkout time. We ran out to the store after lunch and picked up a nice basket and filled it with candy to drop off with the folks at Whispering Hills for being such gracious hosts and making our spot available throughout Malcolm’s recuperation.
About 1:00 PM we hooked up and drove the 14 miles to the Horse Park, setting up in site 209. This site is downhill from the road back, so our auto level system dropped the nose of the trailer all the way to the bottom of the jacks then gave up. We manually leveled it up using the control panel to drop the side jacks and leveling manually from side to side.
Later in the afternoon, we drove around the loops of the campground here and identified sites that are fairly level and shaded to keep in mind for future visits. The rest of the afternoon we spent sitting in our folding chairs outside. The temperature was just right, the door side of the trailer was in the shade and there was a gentle breeze blowing.
