continued from a previous topic here to get more exposure:

We will be running a tour on May 17th 2008. This will be a first for us and i believe ever, we will be going to all 3 mine tours in one day! It will be a bit of driving but I will guarantee it will be well worth the cost of the tour and drive. A different member from the UGM Team will be giving a tour at each different mine. We will be meeting at the 190 Slope Lackawanna Mine Tour then heading to the No.9 Mine in Lansford, and then proceeding to Pioneer Tunnel where we will be walking into the mine with the lights out. Everyone will be issued a hard hat but you are required to bring good boots and a good flashlight to Pioneer Tunnel. For those interested, Contact me via the UGM site for more information. The cost of the day long adventure is $30.00 and that will cover ticket prices at all 3 mine tours. you are encouraged to pack a lunch as we will be arriving at the No.9 mine around lunch time and there is a nice place to sit down and eat in the shade at the mine. This will not be one to miss! We only have 30 places to fill so sign up fast!

It looks like my girlfriend and I won't be able to make the tour. I have alot of Military training coming up and taking off any extra days would be a hard push to do.

Have fun without me.

i would rather not and just have people do the entire thing, thats the idea we are doing. a person can go to a single tour any day. we will be down at lansford and can take you through there probably before this date if you want. mike a. is a regular tour guide down there.

I have an idea for one of your black and white pics... that is, if you'll let me put my heels and a tiara on in the mine.

:twisted:

We have enough problems at the tour mines with out you traipsing around in high heels! That would be a accident looking for a place to happen. The motorman would be paying more attention to you than the end of the road and run the trip down the shaft.
