Aug 2, 2010 - Milwaukee, WI

Today we drove about 20 minutes to downtown Milwaukee and went to the Miller Brewing Co. for their tour. It was very interesting. Some facts according to Miller - 500,000 cases of beer are distributed every other day. 40% of their beer production goes to Chicago and 60% of their sales is Miller Lite. They gave everyone 3 samples at the end of the tour. Beer and pretzels for breakfast. Yeah. We then went to Harley-Davidson factory. They no longer give tours here so we continued on to Quality Candy for their tour which we found out is only on...

Although John loved the BBQ Pork sandwich, even thought he had to have 4 of them....

Jul 13, 2009 - A Great Visit

We made it, finally, to the Racine area to visit Tom and Janet. What a nice visit! They generously offered to let up stay in their yard (they have a really neat place with hookups for a camper), but I was behind on school work and needed an internet connection. Fact is, we should have accepted the offer. The only place we could find was a Jellystone RV park with way too many little yuppie larva kids polluting the place by screaming and running around on park-supplied tricycles. The Yogi Bear theme was overdone to the point of me needing a...
