Norfolk is ten mins away from me. Heck i grew up there. Matt did Charles Warner leave you any contact info? I googled the name and found nothing along the lines of coal sales or any businesses that he would be affiliated. It would be kinda neat to have lehigh at my back door.

yes Sir ill message you his contact information, let me know how it goes!

Thank Matt, I'll work at it ;)

We made it back to my place without a problem. The new truck got 12.3 mpg towing the ~8,500 lb loaded trailer. I think we grossed out at ~14,300 Lbs. Swapped the trailer on to Burt, CoalHeat's hauler. He should be home soon.

Also, if you look closely at the stone wall, you will see a hole. This is where deep mines went through many years ago.

Yes, sure is nice L. I was there with Jack and FF too and was lucky to be on the tour. I also enjoyed the FB video of the string of charges freeing up more of the Mammoth vein.
