Head on down to Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. Great chance to view the worlds longest cave system. Didn't have enough time to explore the full length but we took a 2 hour tour that took us 320 ft under ground into massive underground rooms. Boys complained at first but the tour guide told a lot of stories and they got bored. Once we started crawling and squeezing they were happy. Tucker insisted on walking most of it and we were impressed at his 3 year old energy.
Came out of the caves and .... it's chucking down rain and dark. National parks aren't lit well so Rob picks up Tucker and starts to run uphill for the 1/2 mile back to the car. All of us soaked when we got back to RV.
Couldn't justify spending $4.95 on a magnet (that's our souvenir from each place we go to) so bought a key chain instead. Now regretting that... oh why did I not just pay the extra $3. -Robyn
Rob fulfilled a long time wish and we stayed in the WagWam Motel (see pictures) in Cave City. Not exactly the lap of luxury. In fact I don't think they have done any updating since they were built in 1937. Robyn not overly impressed with this choice of accommodations but she graciously slept inside with me and the boys. Beds were so old that Robyn and I spent a lot of time together in the middle of the bed.
The ironic thing was American Indian themed motel was owned by an Asian Indian man.

Knock, knock, anyone home?
