Grass and Green in Kentucky

After leaving the Sam’s Club parking lot in Clarsville, TN, we headed north-ish.  Crossed into Kentucky in just a few miles … and I can’t believe I didn’t get a picture of the sign!

First stop at 9:00 am to do laundry – 3 weeks worth.  I’ve worked it out that it takes about 2 hours and 40 mintues to do laundry, whether it’s for 1, 2 or 3 weeks.  So we wait long as possible – which is determined when the stock of clean undies, t-shirts and socks is depleted.

After the laundry, we continued north on Hwy 41 to Little Valley, where we turned east/northeast on Hwy 62. In keeping with our “back roads” philosophy, we stayed on Hwy 62, even though it runs pretty parallel to the Western Kentucky Turnpike to Elizabethtown and then the Bluegrass Parkway to Lexington.  We crossed into the Eastern Time Zone at some point (I’m not sure where) and settled in at the WalMart in Lawrenceburg, which is south of Frankfort, Kentucky.

My take on Kentucky so far….marvelously GREEN!

Highway 62 wound around through a bunch of little towns (maybe 50), going in and out of farm fields (mostly corn or soy) and forested areas.  It was beautiful.

I continue to be amazed and astonished by the amount of GRASS in people’s yards.

One house, 4 acres of lawn!

All along, town or country, farm or city house, the yards are big, with lots of grass. And what do men (and a few women) do on Sunday afternooon?  Mow said grass, of course!  We passed by 35 people out mowing (yes, we counted) … and that’s just what we saw, just along the highway!

I have to say, I do like the look of all that lawn, but I’m not sure about committing to mowing that much acreage.  Luckily, living in our RV, that’s not an issue!
