Monday, July 21, 2008

sunny 31 °C

We hook up the 5ver and head down the road for a morning tour of the GM factory where Corvettes are made.

We see a video about Corvettes in a very crowded room and then our group is called for our tour. It is actually a very interesting tour and we have an excellent tour guide. We walk through the factory and see Corvettes being made. They have a special custom Corvette being made today which we're told cost several hundred thousand dollars. No pics allowed inside the factory :-(

We drive 145 miles north thru Kentucky, cross the Ohio River and stop at the Charlestown State Park in Indiana. After setting up the 5ver, we return back over the river to Louisville. Jere wants to see the Louisville Slugger factory and museum.

We have a brief tour through the factory and then check out the small museum. Nothing special, but Jere enjoys it. I like the gigantic bat at the entrance.

I do enjoy the historic buildings in the area of the Louisville Slugger factory:

Then we walk down to the waterfront to have dinner at Joe's Crabshack and then take a stroll along the waterfront. It's a nice evening.
