We made it out of Ohio

We left Ohio on Sunday October 23. I spent Saturday watching football with my brother-in-law as was our normal custom. I'll miss doing that. It was time to roll south though as last year we had snow at the beginning of November. This year was record heat. 
A last look at our view from our summer campsite. The last six months have been eventful but its good to be on the road.
Our goal was Rough River State Park but their campground was closed because the state is making repairs to the dam. So we settled at Army Corps of Engineers AXTEL campground. The plan was to visit with Evan and Terri Young. Terri runs a Facebook page called RVing with Disabilities or Chronic Illnesses.

As we came through Cincinnati we could see the Bungles playing and the jam packed stadium.

The blending bridge of 71 and 75 crossing into Kentucky.
We came into Louisville and enjoyed the scenery.

 I missed the turn for 60 west and continued down 31W. It allowed us to see the United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox.
The GPS took us down some very narrow roads and landed us at AXTEL which was a nice campground. The lady told us she didn't have very many sites open. She should have said she didn't have many sites in use. I could see in the summer the place would be packed because it was right on the lake with its own private beach. The campground had two handicap spots and shocker both of them were full. One was where the truck is parked to the very left of the below picture. It had a small path that connected it to the bathhouse. It was accessible meaning I could get my chair into the shower and it had grab bars and a bench.

The evening was capped off with dinner at the Rough River State Park Lodge restaurant. We ordered the specials and all of us were stuffed.
