Thats what I mean. I have days when I go home beat but I feel more tired when I'm not moving around much. I really don't know how some guys can do that, I don't mean that in a negative way either.


The shuttle car operators are also responsible for helping to move the miner, set bits, clean and dust the feeder, hang curtain build stoppings and the list goes on. About the only time that we do get to sit is when we are running.

But I know exactly how you feel
