Oh Yeah! Kentucky Baby

So it’s finally here – the day we’ve all been waiting for- the first day of JenniFoster summer 2017 tour.  I’m going to be honest – it’s hard work driving the car all day.  Towards the end of the day, I was starting to get finger cramps.  I’m lucky I don’t have claw hands like Chandler did after he played Miss Pac Man for a whole day (yet another Friends reference).

I left about an hour later than I wanted to but that was ok since it was Saturday and rush hour traffic isn’t much of an issue.  I am proud to report that in spite of bringing a shit ton of stuff including 5 pairs of shoes, an ink jet printer and 2 rolls of duct tape, I could still see out the rear view mirror. There is a lot of random crap in there because I’m going to be gone for a month, I didn’t want to forget something.  I also wanted to make sure that I wasn’t traveling alone, so with one piece of Velcro, I was able to adhere my lucky unicorn to a spot that was like custom designed for her.  Throw some tic tacs, gum and chapstick in a cup holder, and I was off.

On many of my previous trips, I have been lucky enough to be a passenger, which allows for you to take pictures and just focus on getting the best shots.  I quickly learned at the big Hormel chili can that driving and taking pictures might take some practice.  See one of 17 pictures below.  Who doesn’t love burst mode?

I headed south on I39 through the tollway into Illinois where I paid cash dollars for my toll.  I have to go in the lane with an attendant as I wanted to pay with paper money.  The nice man told me I was beautiful and to have a great day.  Now I’m sure that he tells all the middle aged women that, but I’m not going to lie, it was still nice to hear and a nice way to start a journey of many miles.

So while I was driving today, I had a lot of time to think about things.  I have come to the following conclusions – important life take away here people – life is too short for uncomfortable underwear and pens that don’t write all the time.  We have all one, that pen you have to scribble like 6 times to get it to work.  Throw it away – replace it with one that writes the first time every time.  Pens are cheap.  Don’t settle for mediocre writing utensils.

I’m not going to bore you with a play by play of every mile – but did you know I had to cross the Ohio River to get into Kentucky? Did you know that the welcome to Kentucky sign is located at the end of the bridge?  Did you know I’m scared of bridges?  Again – it is hard taking pictures as the driver!

So at some point in 8 hours of driving, you get bored.  I made a video for you guys to show you what it was really like and what you were really missing by not coming with me.  It’s on You Tube – Here is a link for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Efp9abB_p98&feature=youtu.be

I also had a tiny snafu with the navigation system in the car.  This morning when I left, I inputted my destination and on the bottom it said 7:24 and however many miles.  So I thought perfect, that’s about when I thought I would get to Crystal and Charlie’s.  As I’m driving along, the number keeps going down and I think I’m making great time so I start dawdling.  I stop at every rest stop I encounter, I stopped early for gas and so on.  So then it says like 4:49 and I know there is no way I knocked that much time off.  Yeah, it was how much longer I had to drive, not what time I was arriving.  Oh well, now I know.

Oh – I almost forgot – I stopped at my first White Castle ever today.  MMMM  I’m going to be doing that again!

OK, this world traveler is pooped and is going to go sleep a really long time in her sweet hotel quality lodgings at Crystal and Charlie’s house.   The bed is super comfy, I have my own bathroom and free wifi!  Seriously, after I leave, I’m going to suggest they Airbnb the place.

    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very
    troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I will certainly come back again.

    worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having

    build this website yourself? Please reply back as
    I’m looking to create my very own site and would like to find out where you got this from or what the theme is
    named. Cheers!

  54. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  55. Thanks for the suggestions you have provided here. Also, I believe there are several factors that really keep your automobile insurance premium lower. One is, to consider buying automobiles that are from the good list of car insurance firms. Cars which are expensive are more at risk of being snatched. Aside from that insurance coverage is also using the value of your automobile, so the higher priced it is, then the higher the actual premium you have to pay.

  56. Simply desire to say your article is as astounding.
    The clarity in your post is simply excellent and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject.

    hold of it!

  59. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    However think of if you added some great images or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably
    be one of the greatest in its field. Good blog!

  60. you’re in reality a good webmaster. The website loading pace is incredible.
    It sort of feels that you are doing any unique trick.
    Moreover, The contents are masterpiece. you have performed a magnificent job on this subject!

  61. I’ve learned some new things through the blog post. One other thing to I have observed is that generally, FSBO sellers will probably reject people. Remember, they might prefer never to use your expert services. But if you actually maintain a comfortable, professional partnership, offering guide and being in contact for four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win a discussion. From there, a house listing follows. Many thanks

  62. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other sites?

    tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    my visitors would certainly benefit from a lot
    of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay

  68. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you
    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same
    outcome.

  69. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing a few months of hard work due to no back up.

    be utilizing? I’m having some small security problems with my latest site
    and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?

  71. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a
    lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing
    from you! Terrific blog by the way!

  72. Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to
    ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
    I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.

  76. Thanks for your write-up on this site. From my own experience, periodically softening up a photograph could provide the photographer with an amount of an inventive flare. Often times however, the soft clouds isn’t exactly what you had at heart and can usually spoil a normally good picture, especially if you intend on enlarging this.

  77. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
    post was great. I do not know who you are but definitely you’re
    going to a famous blogger if you are not already
    😉 Cheers!
