The Broadway Cafe is right in Cave City. I noticed it yesterday partially, I suspect, because of a local Corvette parked in front of it. That same car was there today when I left (and took the picture) though it wasn't when I arrived. Bacon, eggs, home fries, toast, & coffee: $3.75. I left a dollar tip so may now have a reputation for extravagance. September 5,1999
I headed home on Sunday and got that "welcome home" thrill when downtown Cincinnati jumped out from behind the hill.

A lot has changed in the ten years since I first posted some pictures from a road trip. Technology, in the form of cameras, GPS, internet, mobile phones, and the like has progressed at a phenomenal pace. I think my own love of two lane travel may have progressed, too. It certainly hasn't regressed;-) It's really hard for me to imagine a twentieth anniversary for this website but it's no easier imagining an end. Watch this space.

I got to follow some of the local produce as it moved to market.

I didn't do much at all today and even just sat idly on the deck with a big lemonade for an hour or so. I did update the website via the pictured internet connection.

On previous stays here, internet access had worked quite well although it was a mite touchy. There's a wireless router somewhere in or around the office that can be reached from the circle of tepees around it. The thick concrete walls of the old buildings seem tough to penetrate so access was solid only in front of the wooden door. When I checked in Thursday, I connected successfully for something like half an hour but since then, nothing. On Friday morning, as I was outside "experimenting" with the laptop, the owner stopped by to explain that there had been some problems but that they were working to correct them. No sign of correction yet. So I've had to rely on my phone. I can't get a 3G connection here but I can get an EDGE connection; Not great speed but adequate. Of course, it too is subject to the tepee's shielding. It works fine at the door and that's where you see it hanging from the blind's pull cord with charger connected.

The big concert is today so I eventually head to the museum. I'd seen the pair of 1957 beauties from Maryland before but not with the "His" (fuel injected) and "Hers" (not) signs. I had expected to see a few ZR1s along the way and I did hear tales of them in other caravans but this was my first and only sighting.

When I reached the NCM Amphitheater, I was glad to see that, even though I was kind of late and the concert had started, there was still some room left. I saw the Beatles at Crosley Field in 1966. "1964 The Tribute" sounds somewhat better and probably has a better grip on T-shirt sales.

Well, shake it up, baby, now,
Twist and shout.
Cmon cmon, cmon, cmon, baby, now,
Come on and work it on out.

There are a few activities scheduled for Sunday morning but for many, including me, the Saturday evening departure was the final one for this weekend. In fact, I guess this concludes the regularly scheduled part of our broadcast. I'm not sure how I'm heading home but I'm guessing that US-31W will play a part. If appropriate, I'll post a page for Sunday's travels. If not I'll still post some sort of postlude once I'm home.

ADDENDUM: Sep 17, 2009 - I did stay on two-lane (US-31W & US-42) most of the way home but nothing from the drive warrants a web page. This is the end of the trip.
