Lovely Louisville

Yesterday we arrived an hour early for a pickup appointment and the shipper kept us there for over SEVEN hours! That's seven hours stuck in the truck, not moving, waiting to be loaded. Unstinkinbelievable! Because of the delay, we missed a rendezvous we were going to have with another driver to swap loads, which would have gotten us to Florida today. Plus, here are a few shots of the bathroom which was provided for our use at this shipper

These pictures don't even really do it justice.

It was MUCH more disgusting than it looks here.

Because of the delay, Mr. Trucker had to drive all night to deliver the load, then we parked at a truckstop at 5:30 this morning, and slept till nearly noon. Then we had to drive into downtown Louisville, KY this afternoon. That was interesting. Here are some vignettes:

Interesting houses

This was right across from the meat packing plant. But it's
been turned into upscale shops.

Cool architecture. If you zoom in, you can see it says
Bourbon Stockyards

Cute little play on words.

Downtown Louisville

Wrote about this in a previous post.

Not sure what that building is, but it's huge.
In case you wonder how to pronounce Louisville, it looks like you have several options...

Take your pick
It appears to be a happening town. And I may be wrong, but I get the impression that they LOVE their sports

Some stadium or other

Speaking of happening towns, we're caught in rush hour traffic in Nashville right now. It looks cool at night! Too dark to take pictures, however. At this point, we'd be happy to make it to Mr. Trucker's sister's by Christmas eve or Christmas day. We'll have to see how it goes. I'll keep you posted, as usual!


  1. Ah yes, the sites of LV,KY...I know them well! Thanks for the memories! PSP

  2. I'm praying for a timely arrival in FL! Your surprise awaits you whenever you get there. Much love to you both this Christmas. We miss you in the great white north!
