We barely made it home, caught our breath, and went to a fall formal before we were on the road again.
Our first stop was Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. We toured the track, raced fake horses, and tried on hats. No mint juleps for us.
We then went down to tour the Historic Railpark and Train Museum (L&N Station). The kids enjoyed the extensive model set.
Exhausted, we pushed on a little more and stayed in Kimball, Tennessee.
We ate breakfast in the morning and drove a few minutes to Russell Cave National Monument. This archaeological site showed what life was like for native peoples from about 10,000 years ago. We were the only visitors there. The display was nice, but the leaves were fantastic.
We drove into Atlanta for our final stop before we made it to the Air Force Base, the Jimmy Carter Presidential Museum.
We learned about the peanut farmer/rocket scientist and we played on the grounds/ate a picnic for about an hour or so.
And then we drove to our destination. We stayed in Robins AFB Billeting. And I prepped for my week of work.
Total days on the road this trip: 10
