Hey, I'm creating a book about mining stories for a friend, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share some stories of things that happened to them, friends, etc. Funny stories, ghost stories, anything would be nice. Who wants to start?

Ok, lets try this again. Has anyone found anything interesting in a mine that they have explored?

Well, I might have a personal mining story that's kinda funny. I posted it on the Mojave Underground forum. I don't want to simply repost it here 'cause they don't want people to do that. It's now part of their forum.

But you can read it if you want by joining their forum here:

http://mojaveunderground.com/forum/forum.php

Then go to mines and scroll down about a half a dozen titles to you see "Fun Things To Do in the Park".

At any rate, the Mojave Underground is a worthwhile forum to join anyways 'cause they have some neat pictures and topics on western hard rock mines.

regards,
Fred M. Cain

Dave,

It looks neat but I guess I didn't understand what it's supposed to be.

I took it as a diagram of an underground coal mine - either a real one or imagined one.

You could really get lost in there!

Any stories you would like to share? You don't need to tell the name of the mine, and you can use pseudonyms for people's names.

Dave,

Were you able to find my story "Fun Things To Do In The Park" on the Mojave Underground forum?
