First of all here is a photo of the Phaeton as we are getting ready to leave Lazy Lakes. The Cowboy was on the other side doing what he does – unhooking and hooking up, etc.
It was the first and only sunshine that we had seen in the 3 days that we were there and it was cold! Time to head further south.
We filled up the MoHo:
Cost of diesel: $3.679 US gallon
Which equals about: .97 cents per liter
That brings a smile to The Cowboy’s face.
Cost of a juice box (5 liters of wine) in US: $10.00 (+/-) and that’s what brings a smile to my face
Plus a few other sundry items that are much cheaper in the US than in Canada.
Pizza & Buffalo Wings from Papa Leo’s! About enough for 3 meals $30.00. And I wonder why I’m having a hard time fitting in my clothes???
It turned out to be a great travel day and even though we didn’t travel very many miles we left the State of New York and enjoyed the view of the southern banks of Lake Erie through Pennsylvania.
The wonderful fall colours gave us a real show in West Virginia & Ohio.
We boondocked that night near St. Clairsville, about 10 miles west of Wheeling, West Virginia and the next night near Cincinnati. It was somewhere over the course of those two days that we changed our plans (Surprise !!!) about heading into the Smokies.
We found ourselves at Mammoth Caves in Kentucky and spent about 5 days there.
Our backyard view:
That barn in the background was also used for air-drying Burley tobacco that is grown in this area.
Burley tobacco (air-cured) used for cigarette, pipe, and chewing tobacco, grown in central Kentucky, central and eastern Tennessee, southeastern Indiana, southern Ohio, western West Virginia, and western North Carolina.
Here’s a crop still in the field.
Kentucky is a really pretty state with lots of gently rolling hills and the panoramic views out in the country are breathtaking.
