Tunnels, mines, grottos, caves, old bunkers, etc. if it’s underground, I want to explore it. So imagine my joy when I was recently visiting Louisville, Kentucky and learned of the Louisville Underground. Louisville Underground is an old mine below the suburbs of Louisville that offers tours, zip lines and more for the adventurous minded. During the Christmas season they decorate sections of the mine with two million Christmas lights. The public is allowed to drive their own vehicle through part of the 17 miles of underground passageways enjoying the lights and accompanying Christmas music. The mine is so large that it will accommodate vehicles of all sizes including buses and RVs!
By itself, driving your RV through a series of mine tunnels enjoying Christmas lights qualifies as an adventure in RVing, but there is another unique feature of this mine that applies to RVers. Storage!! The Louisville Underground also offers RV storage. At first you might wonder why you would want to store your RV in a deep dark place? But after looking at the advantages of underground storage, you will have to agree it is a great choice. The temperature of the mine is nearly 60 degrees year-round, keeping your RV warm in the winter (i.e., no need to winterize) and cool in the summer. Underground storage eliminates damage to roof vents, tires and moldings from UV rays. Inclement weather is not a problem when your RV is stored in the bowels of the earth. No need to worry about tornados, down tree limbs, hail damage, rain or snow damage. Finally you can’t ask for a more secure location from criminals.
Driving and storing your RV underground, just one more adventure in RVing! Learn more here.
Have a very Merry Christmas and happy RV storage in the New Year!
