No Shepherdsville Stop

We left Sikeston at 7:40 am CDT and decided to try a different route. The speed limit in parts of Illinois is 55 so we took US 60 east to Paducah KY where we picked up I-24 to the Wendell Ford Parkway. This used to be a toll road but became public a few years back. It is good road, little traffic and nice rolling Kentucky hills. As we approached Elizabethtown KY I received a call from Rita. Wayne's mother had collapsed and they were on their way there. It is a two hour drive so they had no idea when they would get back. We told them not to worry and we decided to just come into Cincinnati without stopping since it was only 1 o'clock.

We called Jim at the campground and he said we could pull into a pull-thru overnight and move to our lake spot tomorrow when it opens up. So that's what we did. It was 3:30 pm EDT by the time we got parked and I had anything to eat. There is only one service plaza on the Wendell Ford but we didn't stop. I'm surprised I didn't get a headache. We haven't unhooked since we're moving tomorrow so we'll stay put for the night.

They are predicting some rain showers so we'll just hunker down and give thanks for our safe travels. Since we weren't supposed to be here until tomorrow, we have no plans. I did call Karen to tell her we are here but I reached her answering machine. We may go over there tomorrow to do laundry since we have keys to get in if they are already at the lake. And LaRosa's Pizza may be on radar also.
