Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
Again we are in a dry county, and the closest place to purchase some beer is 20 miles away in Bowling Green Kentucky. But as luck would have it there is the National Corvette Museum there as well and a Walmart. We had discount tickets for the museum and I was thrilled do do the tour of the 115,000 square foot facility, (not so much for Suzie thou).
We began the self guided tour with a short video of the Corvette from it's inception in 1953 right up to present day models. Many rare models, one of a kind and concept Corvettes. Developing the bodies, power trains, chassises, engineering and performance of this Truly American Sports car. This museum has over 80 Corvettes on display and mostly privately owned with information and a history on each one.
Following this we went to Wendy's for a $2.99 lunch special and in the parking lot was designated parking spots for "Corvettes only" go figure! We could have also done a factory tour across the road, but we were wearing sandals and our shoes were back home, "no open toe shoes allowed".
After here we stopped by Walmart for a few items (beer too), and Suzie got a haircut. Then we drove thru historic downtown Bowling Green , including the town square. Election time coming up and typical signs and posters everywhere. One such sign was "re-elect Peanuts Gaines for Sheriff". (Peanuts????).
After touring the city we took the scenic route along hwy 31W back home, thru peaceful farm country, to Diamond Caverns Resort and relaxed in the shade (80f 26c) for a while with a book. Then a tasty hot beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and squash for supper.
