It's not like it used to be when I was a kid. There's still a lot of good coal left in the mountains around here, but fed and state regs make it too hard to get, plus there aren't many good miners left. I have 3 breakers within 20 minutes of my house. I know the breaker bosses at 2 of them, they can hook me up when they are running a lot of deep mine coal.
