Hmmmm - I wish I could attend I LOVE apples.  Abe, I am glad you got a response back from them.  I have emailed them three times to get a list of their different varietlies, but have never heard back from them.
 
It is interesting that they have no heirloom varieties, all "modern" additions to the 7500 varieties out there.  Looks like they took the list of top ten varieties and filled their orchard that way.
 
WOW my local price for 1/2 peck is $4.75

I also have Brewers tickets for the 4th. I may just go and grab my giveaway hats and then leave. That'll leave me plenty of time for apple picking.

You've asked The Elegant Farmer for their varieties?  They're on their website and I pasted them in my last post.
 
Good plan, Gyp!

Has anyone figured out where the beer drinkers will be drinking beer while the apple pickers are picking apples?

Not sure I will be able to attend...Gyp will be at Miller Park ( my usual companion and ride) and no one else is anywhere near me for a ride. I am trying to talk Bob into going, but the 3rd shift thing is hampering to him. But am working on it....

There's a Pizza Hut just up the road in town.

I missed them o n there then Abe, thanks for posting them.  No wonder no one ever got back to me.
I love orchards in the fall, the crisp air, the slight sweetness in the air, the rainbow of colors it is a wonderful place to be.  I am lucky to be friends with two families that own local orchards.  One is more commercial like EF, the other is an older orchard that has many older heirlooms.

All this talk about PH in a non thread will get the flagger throwing their flags  again.  DAMN all this talk about PH has made me hungry here at dialysis, I may have to hit PH on the way home.  Thanks for the idea!

Some team that will be appearing in exactly one postseason game.


Care to make a small wager?

Ordinarily I'd severely admonish you for doing that, but it's looking more and more like this could be a pretty meaningless contest.  I won't be surprised if it bears a strong resemblance to a spring training "B" game, at least for the visiting team.

I'm hopeful that John and I can go, but we won't know for sure for another few days.
 
Ann Peeples, if we do go, I think we can pick you up. You're in West Allis, right?  I hope you don't mind if plans are set a couple of days beforehand.... We'll talk and figure it out.

ChiBears15 has agreed to take me under his wing and show me how it's done.  Therefore, expect us both at the appropriate time and 1st stop.  We'll check here for updates but I am assuming this is the correct itinerary. 
 
"Unless anyone has any other suggestions, here's what I'm thinking for an itinerary:
12:30pm-1:00pm: Gus's Drive-In (we'll tell Buddy 11:00am),
1:45pm: The Elegant Farmer for apple picking, trolley riding, and whatever other autumn activities they have (last train ride is at 2:00, so anyone doing that needs to be there by then.  These rides are first come, first served- no advance tickets.)
5:15pm: LD's BBQ
7:00pm: J. Lauber's Old Fashioned Ice Cream in East Troy: 'Visit Lauber's and take a step back in time.... a 4-page menu of delicious ice cream treats, including 20 flavors of malteds, awaits you in this authentic 1920s ice cream parlor. A huge candy counter, a 78 RPM jukebox and so much more!'"

Yes, as of now, that is the plan.
 
Here's who I have in my head count:
Myself & Mr. Maki- 2
Buddy- flying solo
CTD- 1
ChiBears15- 1
JRPfeff- 2
Stricken- 1
MFL- 1? LD's only
 
The Quixotes, Ann, and Gyp are all tentative, correct? ScreamingChicken is now tentative.
 
X1 and CSD have previous engagements that day.
 
I'll send a message out to irisarbor and cjucoder....anyone else I'm missing?

I'm thinking of joining you at LD's.
I'm surprised that LD's and J. Laubers will be open  in October, late on a Sunday.

Better change me to tentative/doubtful.  We have some Significant Family Activities planned for Oct. 8-11 and there's a pretty good chance I'll have to spend Sunday afternoon taking care of things here at home.
