First 3 Days

A BBQ Festival, a couple of hikes, winery visit and kayaking are the highlights so far. As you might guess, that didn't leave much time for driving down the road - only 277 total miles for three days and the vans computer says I only averaged 26 mph. It seems like every other small town begs me to stop and walk around to check things out.

An example, the first day I went a grand total of 83 miles and arrived at Carrollton Kentucky, a very small town on the Ohio river. "Bands & BBQ" was about to start so, of course, I had to hang around and check things out. Good eats and music in a park on the Ohio, hard too beat. Also did a winery visit just outside Carrollton.

That's it for now. Need to get an early start tomorrow.
