Friday, July 20, 2018: We left Indy at 2:30 to get ahead of some approaching thunderstorms, and we were at the Kentucky border before 5:00 PM. We got to use our one-year-old RiverLink EZ Pass transponder for the first time as we crossed the bridge.
There's downtown Louisville.
And just like that, we're in Bourbon Country. There's a building-height sign for Angel's Envy bourbon.
There were signs around town with famous Louisville residents. Here's Diane Sawyer. Her sign said, "Diane's Louisville."
These signs pictured Kleinert and Kutz, who are Louisville doctors.
Colonel Sanders' sign read, "Kentucky's Colonel."
South of Louisville are lots of flea markets. This one is The Most Awesome Flea Market in the World. Bold claim, but who are we to question it?
Aw, man, we just missed Dinosaur World!
We present to you the scenic rolling hills of Kentucky.
We spotted a WKU license plate as we approached Bowling Green. Go Big Red!
Debbie took her daily photo of her shingles, freshly contracted less than a week earlier. Ewwww. Fortunately, it's a mild case and easily covered up with large blister bandages.
Here's the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, just north of the Corvette Museum.
Tennessee Welcomes You!
This traffic jam was clearly caused by something fire-related.
Wow, the owner of this RV was having a bad day. The entire back end was just a huge charred mess.
We saw a lovely rainbow as we headed toward Hendersonville, Tennessee.
We could be wrong, but it seemed that the rainbow's end was located at the Black-eyed Pea.
There's the pot of gold: a table full of delicious Black-eyed Pea specialties: rolls, corn bread, fried okra, mashed potatoes, meatloaf, pot roast, green beans, and broccoli rice casserole.
Debbie's got a mouthful of fried okra, so she's in her happy place.
Less than a half hour after arriving, we had finished eating and were on our way. We're efficient that way.
There's downtown Nashville in the fading light.
Ooooh, pretty.
Our destination for the evening was Murfreesboro, home of this Chicago-style gyros place. We didn't even know there was such a thing as Chicago-style gyros, but we were too full to try it.
We checked into the Rodeway Inn, ...

... and went straight to sleep, because we had a big day ahead of us.
