I plan to do just that. Assuming UGM sets another 3-mine tour some Saturday next spring. And I have a U/G Bity Miner who wants to ride shotgun.

And I expect a good show for a 13-hour drive. I have only two requirements, No Bars and No Sunday Mornings. Beyond that let's party, I'll bring a couple changes of clothes.

Yeah, I (almost) wish those guys from ohio were closer. They'd make good partners for a mine. Of course there would be non stop bickering but it might just drive the inspectors crazy enough to stay away!

Doug - - - usually we are pulling a trailer in that direction when we go out there. You are more than welcome to ride with us but we might put you to work.

Mike A. can you imagine all of us working together on a daily basis, it is bad enough for just a day or 2- - - - hell we could sell tickets for people to watch as entertainment. We could be millionaires. Hell lets do it.

Hell it wouldn't even matter if the mine made any money at all. The TV show would be a hit!

That seems fair.

But I should warn you. NO MSHA Card and the last coal I shoveled was over twenty years ago. W. Va. Pocahontas Coal in Southern Indiana. And as I recall I spread as nearly as much around the cab as I got in the firebox,
