Below: 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.

NOTE: 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 Duquette 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.

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.

Below: In Big Mike's Mystery House, the two RV Gypsies each sat on a chair that was floating in the air. These photo can not do justice to the event, as the chairs do not look like they are in the air in the photos.

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.

"In your dreams" replied Lee

Dinosaur World has a park in Florida, Kentucky and Texas. The dinosaurs represent a variety of well known and unusual species, which are displayed outdoors with explanatory signs; - Brachiosaurus, Chasmosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Spinosaurus, Stygimoloch, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Since the two RV Gypsies have been to Dinosaur World in Florida with their grandson, they were not interested in stopping here at this time.

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 Duquette 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 Duquette fell (NOT in the campground) and got seriously injured and needed surgery. After their original 2 days here, the campground had to move the two RV Gypsies to another site. It was a bummer because Karen Duquette had to drive the RV and she does not really like to drive it. Lee Duquette was not allowed out of bed except to go to the hospital.

The two RV Gypsies were at this campground for 5 full weeks and Lee Duquette could not go anyplace. He could not stand nor walk until after his surgery.

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 any 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.
