During the summer months I am a working fool, 7 days a week sometimes, so I can bank money for winter travels. This year, my goal is to winter in the Tallahassee area, where winter weather can approach perfection. My travel style is a meander so there are many stops along the way, and one of my main interests is history, so my trips are often history oriented. Each year I try out different combinations of gear. This year, I have my DR 650 and my full suspension ebike, as well as a good selection of carpentry tools. Maybe I can earn some extra money on the road. When I left Colorado, winter was on the horizon. Not so in Kentucky, where autumn was at it's peak. I made a stop at the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village, near Harrodsburg, KY.. Founded in 1823, the Shakers thrived here until about 1910. The love they invested in their community is still very much evident in the land and buildings. Very prevalent at Pleasant Hill is a very peaceful air. In Frankfort, KY. I visit the grave of one of my heroes. While doing geneoalogical research I learned the his people and my people were in adjoining communities. I visited on a quiet Sunday morning and had the place to myself. It's an old and beautiful cemetery containing the graves of many people important in Kentucky history. I also pay a visit to the Flat Lick Baptist Cemetery near Somerset, Ky. Some of my ancestors are buried there and the first Barron came to this area on 1798.
