If you guys want you could use the picnic pavillion at the No.9 and have a cookout or something there and then take the mine tour or go through the museum.

The Planning is dunn all we need is a month & a date I will take care of the rest I am thinking of pretty much what we did on the first two Get coal go to the # 9 mine tour then to the Pioneer tunnel mine tour with lunch and the business meeting thrown in and Maybe a Yuengling tour we could do it for two days Saturday & Sunday Getting coal would have to be on Saturday morning the two mine tours are very close to each other not a problem there as well as the coal Breakers UAE Harmony mine is right up the road from the Pioneer mine Superior is about 15 miles from the Pioneer mine tour
That's why Pottsville is a really good place to start from every Place is with in 20 miles we would do a big loop start in Pottsville and hit all of the Places then Back to Pottsville or Take Mike up on his offer a use the No. 9 Mine Pavillion for a cook out that could be are last stop for the day we would do the coal thing first then the Pioneer and to the No. 9 mine tour coal breakers open at 7am to 12pm some are open until 2pm so lets get a month & a Date Picked out ;)

The mine tour was that third coal event for my wife and the first (and last) for my cousin and wife. She said "No more coal trips for at least a year". By the Fall, she'll forget. All I have to do is say I'll go with Miss Anthracite instead and she'll go on 10 trips.

Wish I could have made it. Actually, I went to flyer5's house to pickup my new KA-4 on Sat after he got back from the mine tour, but I couldn't do another 40 miles on top of the 650 I have to drive that day!!

Maybe next year!!
