Ohio has alot of good things going for it. We're losing alot,like every other State that ever had decent jobs. I keep trying to send the EPA to China,but the ChiComs have firmly stated: "No thanx,Round Eyes,we enjoy dominating your weak moral fiber too much and don't want our Economy to look like yours' ".......I can only keep trying !

My first post , just found this forum, looked around a bit luv it. I am in Piqua OH , 30 miles north of Dayton. Just got 20 bags of Anthrocite and now feel like gowing towards coal in a bigger way.

My desire is for a hot water system burning to heat my shop , I nearly live in the shop now , my house in town I visit only to check mail , take a bath , perhaps sleep there once a week now.

Looking at coal dealers in Ohio was going to put a map on wall with push pins, and perhaps a pin for other board member locations then thought. . . . . well why not a dealer and mine etc map using Google maps ?

They are easily available for such customization.

I have a long history of interest in coal growing up in athens county OH there are many old mine openings still accesable and strip mines were frequent years ago.

Bought a Warm Morning upright stove for 10$ and that with the sears coal/wood circulator bought new 30 years ago kept us warm in Jackson Oh and Athens area when my daughter was small.

Toasty nites warm mornings and happy memorys

My dad knew a man in Athens area that actually had a coal seam running into his basement in Athens county,and he dug coal there ! Imagine a private coal mine in ones basement ! LOL Think well where you want to bulid your next house.

My dad also spoke of people going into old abandoned mines and "robbing" coal off the pillars, only the brave or the stupid or the despearte or all three. Amazing how much coal is in an average pillar.

I remember as a young man with a new baby driving my old AMC Hornet into abandoned strip mine areas and easily filling the car trunk, later I got a trailer and could haul a ton.

The joys of old age, I only posted that 18 months ago and I can't remember why I said that. It does sound like a good idea though. Where is Ohio?

According to the text books it is located in the Midwest, but if you look at the Midwest on a map of the USA you will never find it. Perhaps this made more sense in about 1800.

It's easy, just go to Nebraska and then head due East and you will run into it.

Well Franco OK then Nebraska it is, I'm packing the truck. I need to be very careful coming back East and I need to stay South as obviously there are some very scary people in Lower Fox Valley in Wisconsin that I don't trust. I don't even think they burn coal. One person has been called ascerbic even, I don't know what that is but it sounds scary. One thing to clear up first, is that Obummer creep President out there too? That would be a deal killer for me.
