|Today was pretty uneventful – did some breakfast, the tour, lunch and WalMart. We headed out at about 10:00 and grabbed some breakfast at Cracker Barrel, then backtracked to the distillery tour at Jack Daniel’s in Lynchburg.
The distillery is in a much nicer area than Manchester is – surprising how many really nice houses there are in this rural area. It was really neat to see the history and old-time process that they utilize. One disappointment though; they don’t allow pictures in any of the buildings during the tour – corporate security I guess - anyway it was well worth it.
After that we went just down the road to “downtown” Lynchburg to walk around the town square and go through the Lynchburg General Store which is the souvenir store for the distillery. In a town of 361 people, the square isn’t very busy this time of year and a handful of the stores were vacant. Ate some lunch at a BBQ place on the square and then headed off to the WalMart in Manchester to restock. Then it was back to the bus to clean some suicidal bugs off the windshield, hook up the jeep for an early departure tomorrow and walk the dog a few times.
Got some ribs in the crock pot so that will be dinner shortly. We have a long drive tomorrow from here to Wytheville VA and the weather doesn’t look too sweet after midnight tonight so it might be slow-going.
