aign at the Apline Slide
At the only Alpine Slide in Kentucky, the two RV Gypsies took the scenic chair lift ride to the top of the mountain to ride the Alpine sled on a 1/4 mile trip down the mountain filled with turns and bends! A unique control lever allowed the two RV Gypsies to control their own speed down the mountain.

They do not allow people to go simultaneously on the Alpine Slide, so they gave Lee Duquette the go-ahead first, then after he was part way down the slide, they allowed Karen to go. So Lee was already at the bottom when Karen Duquette arrived and he was able to get a photo of her on the slide.

Cave City, Kentucky - Big Mike's Rocks, Gift Shop, and Mystery House
They charged $1 to tour the Mystery House, but coupons can be found for a free entry.

The Mystery House has several black light posters that the guide will ask you to define what you think you see in the posters. The highlights are the classics -- chair on the wall, billiard balls going uphill, water running uphill, tilted rooms with slanted floors, mirrors that change how you look and an optical illusion room.

In Big Mike's Mystery House, the two RV Gypsies each sat on a chair that was floating in the air.

The two RV Gypsies felt that best part of the Mystery House was the room where the two RV Gypsies stood in opposite corners of the room and they looked like they were either shorter or taller than normal due to slanted floors/ceilings, receding walls, and perspective distortion.

"HA HA" said Karen, "I am taller than you."

"In your dreams" replied Lee

history bookMammoth Cave National Park is a U.S. National Park in central Kentucky, encompassing portions of Mammoth Cave, the longest cave system known in the world. The official name of the system is the Mammoth-Flint Ridge Cave System for the ridge under which the cave has formed. The park was established as a national park on July 1, 1941. It became a World Heritage Site on October 27, 1981, and an international Biosphere Reserve on September 26, 1990.

The park's 52,835 acres are located primarily in Edmonson County, Kentucky, with small areas extending eastward into Hart County and Barren County. It is centered around the Green River, with a tributary, the Nolin River, feeding into the Green just inside the park. With over 367 miles of passageways it is by far the world's longest known cave system, being well over twice as long as the second longest cave system, which is South Dakota's Jewel Cave with just over 150 miles of known passageways.

The new Yard of the two RV Gypsies at Singing Hills Campground. No pool, no clubhouse, a small book exchange in the office and the nicest people own the campground, and the stay was extremely pleasant, even under terrible circumstances of Lee needing surgery and the hospital being 90 miles from the campground.

When the two RV Gypsies first arrived at Singing Hills Campground, they only planned to stay for 2 days. But then Lee fell and got seriously injured and needed surgery. The campground had to move the two RV Gypsies to another site. It was a bummer because Karen had to drive the RV and doesn't really like to drive it. But they did like the second site better. The two RV Gypsies were at this campground for 5 full weeks. The owners were very nice people.

July 9, 2010 - Today the two RV Gypsies ate at El Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant and Grill in Cave City, KY because a native in the area recommended it. In the opinion of the two RV Gypsies, the sauce that came with the chips tasted like plain, ordinary tomato sauce. Even adding their hot sauce to it did not give it any kick. The dinners did not give the two RV Gypsies any reason to want to return to this restaurant. They also have a restaurant in Glasgow, Bowling Green and Munfordville. No, the two RV Gypsies will not try one of them.
After visiting these areas, Lee became in need of surgery in Kentucky, so the two RV Gypsies had a long lay-over stay at Cave City, and they never got to see Mammoth Cave.
