Pioneer Tunnel, Ashland, Pennsylvania




Meet Bill, I rather fell in love with Mr. Bill. See his name tag? I thought he was super cool. We kind of match, why didn't I wear my black shirt too? We could have been twins. I just need a miners hat. Visiting the "Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine & Steam Train", Ashland, Pennsylvania was so fun. I love trains. Anything trains. Coal trains are the best-est. So we know President Obama as entertained the Pope & many other famous important folk in the world ...but has he ever visited a coal mine? Got to see the men who works these mines? The men, & I am guessing that women do the work too? But these folks are such hard workers & make me super proud to stay warm each & every year. Beth ( :

I love old trains. Coal trains are familiar to me, growing up in Illinois not far from a coal mine. I could never do the work of these miners...way too claustrophobic! Have a good week, Beth.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
