Day 3, Nashville

We left Raintree Lake at 8:30am, and drove down the road to the Scottsburg Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Access with our rig was easy, with lots of RV parking at the rear. This is the first visit this trip to the Cracker Barrel, and on a cold morning, the atmosphere is welcoming with a nice log fire burning in a stone fireplace.

I had a delicious breakfast of eggs, hash brown casserole, and their signature thick-sliced bacon, accompanied by a pot of Earl Grey tea. Thoroughly enjoyable!

We proceeded south on I-65, and were soon crossing the Ohio River into Louisville, using the brand new bridge which was recently opened. There is no easy bypass route for Louisville; I-65 goes right through the downtown core, and driving through here with a rig requires concentration and nerves of steel, negotiating the narrow traffic lanes and trying to stay clear of the frantic local drivers. Fortunately, this was a Saturday.

We arrived in Nashville at 1:00pm Central Time, and checked in to the Music Valley KOA for two days. We are in a nice paved pullthrough site with a stone patio, hooked up to water and sewer for the first time since leaving Milton.

Tomorrow, we will visit the Opryland Hotel complex, which is somewhat of a tradition for us at this time of year. I will post pictures tomorrow.
