The past couple of days have been a little bit of a grind on the Tennessee River. It can't always be exciting, but when I got to Pickwick, I saw that the boredom was about to get balanced out. When I arrived, I met one of Trey's old fraternity brothers, and was immediately welcomed into the family. He had a bunch of friends come in from out of town to see the barrels. They basically threw a party for the barrels (and the captain!). It is awesome to meet brand new people and immediately feel like you've been welcomed into something bigger than yourself. I couldn't have had a better night. Gotta love Pickwick!
