  • Sometimes you just have a hunch; you can’t explain it but something tells you to veer from your normal path and see what lies ahead in the other direction. One such hunch came over me last week on my way to work. I was running late and was just going to take the quickest route to Hodgenville from home, Hwy 31E. But something was telling me to turn off on Salem Church Road. Maybe it was my lack of acceptance that it was indeed production day after a long weekend with Monday off, but I followed my instincts and took the long way to work.

  • I love a good road trip. Not the driving across the country kind of road trip, I prefer to get lost in back roads that meander through the county-side. I enjoy finding off the beaten path sights and can’t resist turning down a road I haven’t traveled. Now that I’m working in LaRue County I’m eager to learn all about it and one of the first things I want to do is get “Lost in LaRue.” Join me on my adventures as I take pictures of places and people and write about my findings.
