This session we had a lot of work for our Suwannee River trip. We finished our trip menus. We made about 48 trip menus. We have started on our Master Food list. The itinerary is on plans for Thursday, February 28, 2013. We are excited for the Suwannee. We are done with the commissary! The Supervisors are boiling maple sap into syrup that tastes like maple. We are making alot of kindling and shavings. E. H. – Explorer
Today we went to a small coal museum in the basement of a library. This museum was very interesting. It was full of artifacts from some very early mining days. For example; lunch pails, picks, shovels, squibs, and many other things. One of the things I learned is that Hanna Mine Co. made their own currency. We also went to my house to tour the cheese house. We had lunch then my dad gave us a tour of the plant. I did my best to pay attention, but I’ve been there a time or two. That’s a little about today. A. E. – Discoverer
My fun one day trip!
It was fun riding in the van. We went to a coal museum with facts of coal. I learned that the big Muskie bucket can hold 210 cubic yards and the Gem can hold up to 156 cubic yards. After that we went to Austin’s family cheese factory. I ate so much pizza and cheese I felt like a balloon ready to burst. I had fun learning how they make electricity out of the waste water of the factory. I had fun taking a siesta on the way back to camp. You really need to visit Pearl Valley cheese company. D.
