There's a big cattle auction you can watch outside Oklahoma city if you can catch it on the right day. It's something cheap/fun/family-friendly to do. Having fun following you guys! :-)

I forgot to mention! Well David reminded me - go to Pop’s off old Route 66 in Oklahoma City - has every kind of soda pop you can imagine. Kids loved getting to pick some out to try. They also have a restaurant but we didn’t eat there. And the worlds tallest bottle statue - ha! 😄

The cattle auction sounds like a unique thing to do. We will certainly look into that!

If you’re planning to drive between Louisville and Evansville, look up Goat Milk Stuff. They are a homeschool family that runs a goat farm. They make and sell soaps, cheeses, and other natural products. I’ve bought their soap for years and one day want to visit. You can tour the farm, play with baby goats. Eat in their cafe.

Hmmm. Just looked at map. It’s actually north of Louisville. So not sure how much out of the way it might be.

Sounds like a cool place...we may have to change our route to do it. :-) Hope you are all well.

We haven’t been yet but Santa Claus,IN may be a place to check out. It’s east of Evansville. Let us know where you end up. We may be able to come visit.

I spent some time in Louisville. When its not derby time it has a lot of charm. Some nice parks and trails, like the Big 4 Bridge.

Was in Louisville in May for a wedding. its a cute town. went to the Louisville slugger museum, which is pretty cool (and i think free unless you buy something in the store) and went on a tour of Churchill Downs--there was a fee, but cant remember how much, but also got to see a race. Enjoy!

I don’t remember stopping in any of these places. Might’ve driven through Lexington/ Bowling Green, KY, decades ago, and same with Evansville IN, for both, from and to Cincinnati where I lived for 3 yrs, eons ago:). And might’ve flown across St Louis and Tulsa/OK City, OK..

Louisville...check out the Louisville Mega Cavern. St. Louis - everyone raves about the City Museum. Not a typical museum...from TripAdvisor: "Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge." Also in St. Louis there is Grant's Farm.

That sounds great! What a fun sounding cave. Nate has been asking about going to a cave for a while, and this sounds like the one. Thanks!
