So, this day was quite lovely.
We traveled to Pottsville, PA, to tour the Yuengling Brewery, the oldest brewery in the US. The tour ended with some free samples (I recommend the Porter; stay away from that Chesterfield Ale!

And according to the many brilliant monkeys writing Wikipedia, the fires will most likely continue to burn for the next 250 years.
You can see the smoke coming from cracks in the old highway, and the road is HOT. You can feel it through the soles of your shoes. It is bizarre.
Then, we went to Cracker Barrel, where I ate [redacted] and [redacted]. In fact, I offer this journal today as a gesture only. Just count it as a cheat and move along.

Have I mentioned that I love baseball?
