Traveling on

When we last connected with our intrepid travelers, they were in Kentucky, on their way to the Graham-Eckes class reunion in Palm Beach, Florida.

After the National Corvette Museum, we continued on our leisurely drive. The countryside showed more signs of spring each day.

Roads cut through rock are an exotic thing to flatlanders. Frequently there would be water trickling down the face of the rocks. Quite artsy. Many times we were warned to look out for falling rocks, but never told what to do if we saw them.

Our next adventure was a stop at the George A. Dickel & Co. Distillery in Cascade Hollow, Tullahoma, Tennessee. The tour was interesting, educational and a great marketing tool. After seeing what care goes into the production, you have to get some. And guess what, there is a gift shop at the end of the tour. Who would have suspected? We bought a few bottles without tasting, because they are in a dry county and traveled on. That evening, at our hotel, we tasted it. Silky smooth, no burning, wonderful taste. I was hooked.

The next day, we high-tailed it down to Palm Beach to start the reunion festivities.
