LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Hal Heiner's marathon campaign for Kentucky governor now includes a travelogue of his visits to nearly sixty different counties and counting since he announced his candidacy less than four months ago.

The Heiner-­Crosbie campaign website includes an interactive map tracking Heiner's RV tour.  Heiner posts brief notes about each stop, some with photos. 

In Whitley City, Heiner posted a photo at Integrated Community Ministries, which serves people in McCreary County, the 10th poorest county in the United States.

In Manchester, Heiner is pictured speaking with diners at Collins Restaurant and with Judge Executive Joe Asher.

Heiner's two day Paducah stop included the National Quilt Museum and Kirchhoff’s Bakery, where Heiner writes he "grabbed some sweets."

Republican primary opponent James Comer has visited all 120 Kentucky counties since his election as Agriculture Commissioner in 2011.  Heiner has not held office since 2010, when he ended his eight year tenure as a member of Louisville's Metro Council with a narrow loss in the city's mayoral race.

Heiner's campaign plans to update the map with future stops.

“The best part of entering the race early is the opportunity to hear about the issues facing Kentuckians as well as sharing my vision for putting Kentucky first," Heiner said.  "The more communities we visit the more I am emboldened to fight for Kentucky families and break the culture of mediocrity permeating Frankfort.”

Heiner will appear on WHAS11's The Powers That Be on Saturday morning (9:30am) to discuss his campaign.
