Great discussion of a short trip to Ky!

The guest, Eric Gregory, brought many ideas for how the audience can take a short, affordable trip to beautiful KY and John did a great job in getting him to describe our beautiful state with its many offerings for visitors. The Bourbon Trail offers something for nearly everyone. You don’t even have to like bourbon to enjoy it because the distilleries, seeing the bourbon making process and all the farms/ locations you can see make it a worthwhile trip. It’s a great way to spend a few days and slow down for some peaceful time!
