We were hoping to make this rescheduled trip to JIM THORPE. However we will be out of town on June 10th. But we will be with you in spirit. Hope you get sunny weather.

Joe,
Suggestion. Why don't we meet at the turnpike rest area just above Quakertown. Same spot as the Corning trip. 476 has a lot of construction on the extension all the way up to Quakertown.

Hey Guys,

Weren't we leaving Willow Grove at 8:00? Shouldn't the time be adjusted to reflect the distance from Allentown Plaza to the coal mine?

Just wondering.

It is 1hr 9 min from the Allentown Plaza and it is 60 miles that would mean that we would arrive about 9:15 at #9 mine and we would walk around the museum as they prepare us to go into the mine. It was recommended that it would be best to meet at the Allentown Service Plaza. If you have any questions please call me at 610-842-6648
