Here's the gang minus Jack, who didn't want to look at the camera.
On of the towers at the distillery.
The big white building on the hill holds 1 million gallons of whiskey and there are 77 buildings across the distillery. Our tour guide explained that of the 77 million gallons of whiskey here, they get one pint a month. He seemed bitter about that.
Popo and Abbott in front of the old REO Speedwagon fire truck.
Jack decided after Popo and Abbott did it, that it was ok for him to do it, too.
The natural spring that runs through the distillery and where they get the water they use in the whiskey.
Jack & his "Momo" stance.
Kelly & Abbott with Jack. Abbott sure does look interested in him. My Jack's not so interested in him.
Here's the fermenting whiskey.
Popo and Abbott on the tour.
This is a barrel full of charcoal. The whiskey drops one drop at a time. When the charcoal can't be used for the whiskey anymore they bag it up and you can use it in your BBQ.
Kelly is taking a whiff of the whiskey barrel. She stayed there for about 15 minutes... I'm not sure why.
The grounds are so pretty and peaceful.
After the tour we went to "metro-Lynchburg", which was actually what the city limits sign said. Downtown is a quaint little square with Jack Daniel related stores and some restaurants. We ate lunch at the BBQ Caboose and shopped a little, it was great.
If the only way is the wrong way, which way should we go?
Jack & Abbott had fun picking flowers (or weeds) and putting them in the bucket.
Jack had fun blowing, with a little spit, the dandelions.
This is the face of a super cute, absolutely worn out boy. He sure does know how to test the limits at times, but he missed out on a lot of sleep and didn't feel 100%. I hoping the week of rest will be good for him so we can go at it again. Jarred has about 4 weeks until he takes his test so start thinking about him and praying that he does well so he will pass the first time and be done with it!
