Thursday May 15, 2014-Whispering Hills RV Park, Georgetown KY

The rain continued today along with cool weather. It only got into the low 60's today, so most of us stayed inside. It was good to rest, but we came here to meet new people, so when we found out that we were having an impromptu cookout this evening, we were glad. Unfortunately, we didn't find out about it soon enough to prepare anything or to even go to a store to buy something to take. Stella had bought some pretzel balls while we were in Shipshewana, so we took those and they were a hit. We enjoyed meeting some new friends and are looking forward to the rest of the rally.

Since today was so slow, I'll tell you a little bit about Georgetown Kentucky. The main industry in town is the Toyota Motors manufacturing plant. They they produce the Camry, Avalon and Venza models. the really interesting thing about this plant is that it is a "zero landfill" location. This means that all waste is either recycled or composted. The compost is then used in a large garden that produces over 2.5 million pounds of produce that is donated to a local charity for distribution. 
Pretty cool, huh!

So long.
