Strataca Kansas Underground Salt Museum














Strataca Kansas Underground Salt Museum

Hutchinson, KS

I'll start out with that being underground, I don't mind visiting but I can not imagine doing it for a job ...on the daily? I would really miss the light and seeing the outdoors throughout the day or on breaks. What do you think? & pictures are not that great ...I had to go through and weed out some very blurry views. I hope these will give you a great idea of what you will see and enjoy. Very educational and fun. It was neat ...you do ride an elevator down into the mine ...to me you don't really notice the feeling (you might need to pop your ears, but nothing that dramatic??!) or air until you go back up ...it is like a real blowing affect there. You can feel it and hear it, Very wild!!!

The rusty like saw machinery was to cut into the mine wall, I find folks who do this kind of work really are amazing hard working folks ...just so interesting to see. I would highly recommend seeing this museum, very, very, very cool!! All the vehicles you did see have been there for years ...the salt is not good for vehicles. I couldn't get a picture of the one that was there the longest ...it was really messed up and is not used any more. I guess salt is not great for everything ...you know how meat is cured.

If you notice "Dorothy", that's a movie prop from the movie "Twister" with so many great actors in it, you should so totally see it, I think it was out in the early 90's. Loved it!!! So good, about chasing twisters. I can not believe people actually will chase them and see what the wind speeds are and so forth??! You either think ...wow that seems very brave, or wow, that seems really, really, really DUMB??! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

I really don't think I could work underground and remain somewhat sane. A little tidbit of info about me. I would love to go chasing after tornados.There is just something about that this I find exciting. Now, I won't likely ever do that seriously. I'm getting too old for that kind of stuff, but I can still dream.

This is rather interesting. My brother is a mine manager (gold) in northern Ontario. He doesn't seem to mind it. Not me, though.

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. ) :

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
