:lol: That's what I thought. I e-mailed Larry to see if he got any good shots of it or not, will let you know.

I don't know if you've ever seen it but on the Shamokin side of the mountain, at the bottom there is a cement opening that mine water is coming out

Hmmm, I will be sending you something in th mail shortly, with items on it for you.

The man where the Locust Spring hoisting engine is was asking about you and said he hasn't heard from you in awhile.
