Kentucky Counties Release Challenge

The Commonwealth of Kentucky has 120 counties, and for some reason I've decided that each of them should have a wild release. It's probably impossible for me to do this by myself so I'm challenging all the other Kentucky BCer's (and anyone who happens to find themselves in the state with a book and a desire to release it) to help me with this. I'm not offering any prizes and not putting a time limit on it. I'd just like to keep Kentucky in the red on the "Go Hunting" list and have something to inspire me while I'm traveling.

Is anybody with me on this? If so, just post your releases in this thread with the County name; and I'll keep track. I'll mark each county with an "*" when a wild release is reported. I'm starting today with two of my own.

* Adair
* Allen
* Anderson

I haven't been doing wild releases lately, but this will encourage me to get back to it. You already got Hopkins for me, so I will take Muhlenberg County as I am there a lot, and I will be in Daviess County at the end of next week for work. Does that help? I don't travel like I used to do, because of a change in jobs.

Thank you!

I thought of you when I released the book in Madisonville the other day, wondered if you would be tempted to come out in the downpour to look for it.

When you make releases in your counties, just post them here and I'll mark them on the list.

Thanks for your help!

And I forgot that I travel through McLean Co. to get to Daviess Co., so I can do that one too.

Cool! I'll mark it on the list.

I've made a lot of releases around the state before I started this challenge. To make it a little less challenging, I'll spend some cold winter day going back through them and figuring out in what counties they were released.

I was traveling yesterday and did a couple of my own.

I live on the Tennessee and Kentucky border and can do some of them-Calloway for sure since that is Murray where we shop and I will check the map for more.

Cool! Thanks for the release! This is actually #36. I caused the list to be out of order when I posted about a journal entry.

Excellent. We're more than 1/4 of the way there! I am going to be driving through Kentucky twice in August, so maybe I can get some more.
Profile Image
I'll be hitting the road again in a few weeks with a bag of books and hope to mark off some more Kentucky counties. If anyone is passing through Kentucky, take a look at the counties that still need books.

I left this in the middle of nowhere, trying to get this county; and then I found out that just one exit up there are all sorts of places to make a release.
