Another early rise today 6.00am wake up but with all honestly I am not getting much sleep I am just to excited for each day that approaches purely running of adrenaline :)

With a mammoth 325 mile drive ahead of us it was a quick shower and breakfast, pack camp up and load the van and hit the freeway for another fun packed day of adventures in Louisville birthplace of the good old KFC.

After a fair few hours it was time for some dinner, Emily's friend had recommended we pull up at a place called Devou in Kentucky, absolutely beautiful backdrop of Cincinnati, was awesome sat there munching lunch and taking in the view of the whole city. Loving these random stop offs seeing lots of America that you wouldn't normally see if you were just a regular tourist, also the heat seems to have been cranked up a notch a good old 34 degrees you can tell we are in the south loving it :)

After dinner it was time to hit the freeway again till we reached our destination of the Louisville slugger museum, home to the worlds largest baseball bat. I got to hold Derek Jeter baseball bat which was pretty cool. We were taken on a tour of the factory, we were shown how they use to make bats compared to how they make them today. They produce bats for all major league and minor league players. Love how diverse and different this tour is loving the little quirky trips such as this.

Brucie bonus we got a free little baseball bat which I will treasure forever :)

After the museum it was time to hit up camp, we were staying at Louisville metro KOA in Indiana, which can only be described as a trailer park, I was expecting honey boo boo to come running out of nowhere shouting you better red-neck-o-nize this! It was brilliant proper American camping experience, southern heat, trains passing by the hour and Harley's parked up here, there and everywhere.

Tea was provided by Dani, Claire and Luke yummy beef fajitas washed down with some margaritas. After tea we headed for the Louisville stadium to see Louisville take on the Mudhems, I must say I think I was on the opponents side as the baseballers were much cuter ha ;)

Sat there with a beer in hand and great company was an awesome experience, felt like I was officially in America. baseball is a long, drawn out game but fun and chilled all the same :)

After baseball we headed home for some much needed kip, another end to another awesome day in this awesome country. I know I still have ages left but I don't want to go home could happily spend my life being a trekker :)

Led in the tent was a surreal experience listening to the southern trains going past it all felt so real and cultured absolutely loving it

Nighty night y'all
