A big THANKS to coal berner

PostBy: smokeyCityTeacher On: Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:07 am

Last year I was posting how Id love to get a load of the real stuff instead of this surface crap full of bone (READING). Coal Berner PMd me and volunteered to meet me near the mine and get me to it to pick up a load. I called him last week and he met me this Saturday and helped me get my first load. He also helped me back the truck in and get it loaded up. Then he let me follow him from the mine to my ramp onto the pike so I didn't get lost on the goat trails. The cost was $!50 a ton and its worth twice that. The coal was also exceptionally clean. When I got home and dumped the load there was only a couple little pieces of wood in the load --otherwise 100% clean, uniform and no fines!

I'm burning it tonight and the blue ladies are far superior to the crap I was burning. It is easy to light. My 1st batch burnt down to nothing, very little ash and no big bone chunks left over.

It was funny meeting this guy cause his posts sounded like a seasoned old timer then his voice on the phone sounded like an old timer too. When he showed up at the meet place I didn't recognize him cause he is actually very young.

We are luck to have people like Coal Berner on this forum. Thank you J.C

Well, he really isn't that young... :devil:

You are right, though, JC had helped out a lot of us here on this forum and deserves our thanks.

Here, here I say it again. My thanks to J.C. for literally leading me to the good coal. I'd still be buying coal locally if it weren't for this forum and J.C. Great guy! And many thanks to J.C. for organizing several of the early forum in person meets. Sure makes a forum more enjoyable when you know the person behind the keystrokes.

Hard to add anything more to the Kudos our most famous NEPA Ambassador has done for our community. He's offered his knowledge & time to all for the asking, OK - for a piece of pizza :) In the end we all come away profiting from his shared knowledge ;)

JC quite simply, a big Thank You to you and your family for sharing you with us :clap: Generosity like this is rare and we appreciate it.

(next time I'll keep it under 4 grand :P )

Your all quite welcome if I did not like helping out people I simply would not do it but I do enjoy it meeting all kinds of people from all over the East coast and out West & The South .

As far as age goes I am older then I look what most say when they meet me your younger then I thought
or you sound older then you are . Well I probably know more then most twice my age well maybe not twice the age most would be in the ground by then ;)

There are not many people like J.C. He is a walking encyclopedia of anything coal related. He also probably knows more about guns than Sarah Palin. :verycool:
