Looks like a good learning and fun opportunity.

Unfortunately January is booked for me between work and planning to go to my son graduation from his basic and advanced individual training for the Army National Guard Reserve at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.

Maybe next time.

8 tons a day......sounds like job security for life to me. Matt, isn't there talk of a certain local brewery expanding to our area also? Can we get into the power plants for a "look=see"?
We need 'short bus' to fly down, and then we can have a 'short bus' to ride in, driven by a fellow member called "Short Bus". A guy 'formerly known as Stoker Scott' would probably love to get in on this trip,
if he doesn't have commitments in Bellows Falls VT. :idea: :shock: :?: :!:

Can't u get Yuengling in ur neck of the woods? Power Plants? Obama will have all them shut down by then :lol:

It's looking to be on Friday January 27th. I'm still waiting to hear back from one location( the big hurst boiler, last pic shown). We will meet at the Dunkin Donuts on Rt 61 in Pottsville Pa 17901 at 10am . As of now I have 3 boilers lined up, hope to have a 4th. That's enough sight seeing for the day . Then for some brews at a local Tavern to discuss the days events. :cheers: Contact me if you like to join us.

I have some questions. Since it's on a weekday I'd have to take off work. Not an issue but my wife would also like to come. Which means that we'd have to leave at around 5am. Finding a babysitter for us is next to impossible so, we'd have to bring the kids. My step-son is 12 and my daughter will be nearly 2. Would we be able to bring the kids? It may be a very good learning experience for the 12 year old. We wouldn't necessarily have to go to the bar so that wouldn't be a problem for us. If this is an adults only thing then unfortunately I'm not going to be able to come. :(

I understand how difficult it is to find a babysitter. My wife and I end up taking our kids everywhere for the same reason. Bring the entire family. As for ending the day at a Tavern, both places I have picked out are very kid friendly and have excellent food :up:

MP, graduates 1/19/12. He likes it so far.

His older brother is a Marine Reservist who's 6 years is up. He plans to re-up in the Navy as a corpsman.

Yeah it's still on. Now that the holidays are over I'll put more time into it. I'll double check with the locations to see if it is ok to get in on Jan 27th. Let me know who is in?
