Damn you, Kentucky

Whilst perusing my flist, I came across a link to this little travel-map thingy. So of course I had to do one.

I've been to 33 states (66% of the United States). I've traveled through all of these states by car, by the way. Not too bad, eh? But I obviously need to come up with a reason to hit Kentucky. I don't like that hole in the map staring back at me.

Wow that's a pretty good demarcation for across the lower 48! I know a lot of people who haven't been to that many states.

I've got 9 to go. 2 I'll check off in September and hopefully a few more next Summer. I've got one of the Dakotas that I've never been to that I likely never will. But then again, never say never I guess.

You'll only have 7 states left after September? That's impressive!

It looks like some oddly shaped donut!

Maybe one that got lofted at the windshield of a moving vehicle.

KY is my favorite. I've been a million times. Keeneland in April or October is a good excuse. :)

visited 40 states (80%)

That's a lot of travels!
I'm not sure horse racing can lure me to Kentucky, but I'll find a reason to go there one of these days.

Well we can’t have that so here are some reasons to go…

1 The McHague Mill in Levi Jackson State Park has the largest collection of old millstones and you can even buy fresh ground cornmeal.

2 Wigwam Village Inn at the Wigwam village, instead of staying in a motel room you can stay in a wigwam. The inn also has a gift shop that has a variety of memorabilia and Native American themed items.

3 The Schmidt Museum of Coca-Cola Memorabilia has a variety of memorabilia throughout the history of Coca-Cola.

4 Giant Tire Rim Woman, A 16 foot tall woman made out of tire rims what more can be said.

5 Vent Haven Museum, the world's only museum dedicated to the art of ventriloquism, both fun and creepy!

6 World’s Largest Baseball Bat, “swing” on by and also see the Louisville Slugger Museum.

7 Big Bone Lick State Park, just because of the name and because it sounds kinda dirty.

8 Little Green Men Festival in Kelly, which is something to do with an alien siting; I don’t get it either but when you are finished you can head to Covington and see the Futuro House which is shaped like a flying saucer and can hold up to eight people!

See what you have been missing! :)

Wigwams, giant tire rim woman, big baseball bat, ventriloquist creepiness... You make a good case for Kentucky. Maybe next year I'll plan a trip there.

Reason to visit Kentucky...the National Paddling Film Festival


I found out about this festival when I met Barry Grimes while paddling in Canada. I've only attended once, but it's a reason to visit Kentucky!

Re: Reason to visit Kentucky...the National Paddling Film Festival
I think I'd rather go to the Little Green Men Festival that Intrepid mentioned than a paddling film festival :P

Thanks for the suggestion :-)
I've posted my own... but I'm not sure I have time for Texas, or the other *hot* states...

Re: Thanks for the suggestion :-)
I'd like to go back to Texas some time — maybe see the Alamo, buy a cowboy hat and some boots and a giant belt buckle. I've only driven through the little part at the top before (went through Amarillo).
