I will have to look into the climbing. I am unfamiliar with rocks in that part of the country. There is a lot of limestone as evidenced by the extensive cave networks. I am not really a limestone climber (yes, there is a big difference in climbing styles depending on the type of rock). 'Course, I really like spelunking and would be more inclined to do that since there are so many great caves in Kentucky. I also like canoeing and white water rafting. All these years and I have never been to Ohio and surroundings. I have been to southern Kentucky; it is a very scenic state. Well, I guess I will have to hit the web and then convince the family that Ohio and Kentucky are the places to go next summer. I am setting a precident in a couple of weeks; my wife and I are linking a vacation to the Pac Coast Championships in Northern California. It will be off to Lassen National Park and a Farm stay after the tournament. Should be fun. I wonder if I can buy blunts for my ACE's so that I can stump shoot while I am on the farm?Hank,
there are alot of outdoor things to do. Miami bike trail, 70 miles of biking very nice and bike rentals avalible for less than $20. Metamora is a small town with a canal boat and train, craft stores, very relaxing picnic. Ky has the Red River gorge area, hiking and climbing, canoeing on the little miami river and in red river gorge. If you want more pm me. All these places have web sites. We will have to meet up and compare all our equipment and techniques and of course find a beverage. Gar.
