Our first evening of tenting was reduce brief round 5AM by a flock of crows that descended on our campsite and started making a noise that will put even the boldest rooster to disgrace. After about an hour they flew off to get up another campers, however by then the possibility of going again to sleep had already handed. So I dragged myself out of the tent and started the duty of packing up. In fact it additionally rained in the course of the evening which made for a dreary morning.
On our manner out of city, we handed an previous practice station and pulled in for just a few footage. The constructing now homes some workplaces and a tanning saloon, which diminished the historic vibe. It nonetheless appears to be like fairly cool in the event you do not have a look at the signage too carefully.
We rolled on via Virginia, dipping down into Tennessee for a dozen miles or so earlier than making our manner via the Cumberland Hole. I’ve heard that title all my life, most not too long ago within the tune “Wagon Wheel” and because it was time for lunch we determined to take a look at the city.

To not be outdone, the subsequent city had a big signal boasting that they have been the house of a global trampoline champion. That was virtually value stopping for, however the afternoon was sporting on, so we pressed on to Russell Springs, KY.
Our house for the evening was a big KOA campground, situated properly outdoors the town limits on a bluff overlooking Lake Cumberland. Based mostly on the variety of boat associated companies we handed on the way in which in, Lake Cumberland have to be an enormous lake, however the campground was so wooded, we could not actually make out the lake in any respect. Nonetheless the campground was clear and being that it was off season, we had the place virtually to ourselves.
