|The best time to go to Kentucky is
certainly NOT the summer. Then it is much too warm and the humidity
kills you (at least me).
The road conditions are relatively good, but
there are some deep pot holes too, that one has to watch out for.
Especially on the Interstates there are often bad stretches that remind
one of Eastern Europe.
The language is ofcourse English, but the widely
used southern dialect does often make it hard to understand locals.
About safety I can only say that everybody is
allowed to carry a gun, and many do. So far I haven't seen any, and I
hope it stays this way.
Some of the traffic rules are different from the
rules in Europe. You can read up on that here.
