In October of 2018 we hauled the RV from Florida to Kentucky to provide us a more comfortable place to call home on Kowalski Mountain. This RV has opposing slides and even an electric fireplace that make it feel like a luxury hunting camp.
Challenges on the Road
Travel wasn’t without issues… we blew a tire in downtown Atlanta late at night. I stood watch behind the RV, warning Philip of vehicles that were a little too close for comfort as he changed the tire in record time and got us back on the road.
Setting Up the Amenities
To set up our place to call home, we had to replenished our water supply. The local car wash was a great place to clean the cistern tank before filling it up at the city water dispenser.
Philip’s parents, Joy and Danny Murphy, joined us for the week to hunt and relax. We got some additional stands in place with Danny’s help.
Dreams Do Come True
Philip’s dream is that Kowalski Mountain will be a place that we can share with all generations. A place to slow down and experience a different kind of life. One that includes the reward of hard work and the enjoyment of the the stillness and solitude that the mountain has to offer. A place that we can enjoy the company of others without the busyness that typically fills our lives.
Hunting Season on the Mountain
We always stay busy at Kowalski Mountain, but hunting season takes on a different focus.
We have plenty of space for our family and friends to camp with us. Slowly we will add improvements to the property to offer some creature comforts for our guests.
Enjoying the Local Attractions
We like to stop at Jackson’s Orchard whenever we visit Kentucky.
A Place to Call Home
While we didn’t get any deer this trip. We enjoyed good company, amazing weather and accomplished a major milestone in setting the RV up. It will be a place to call home until the house is built. If you missed us getting the camper pad ready, read about our first workcation here.
We are not affiliates of Jackson’s Orchard and receive no compensation.
