We didn't leave Bville until around 11am, but we still made a quick stop at the United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) and managed to explore the inside exhibits for about an hour. Zach and I found this place about a year ago as outside trail plainly visible from 81. We were on our way to Whispering Pines, NC.

Doesn't really deserve a concert, but, hey, it's a borough, so I'm counting it. Only memorable thing are the new "gutter gardens" on the sides of ...
We found out last night that Joe Sell and his new wife live just north of Gettysburg. We contacted him and found out where they go to church so we decided to backtrack a little bit and go see them.
