Visit to Gale Mining Yesterday

My son and I stopped in at Gale mining to meet fifthg . We were on our way home , driving Rt. 81 north from Carlisle.
Fifthg is a member here and a really good guy . We got to see the inside of his breaker house and look over the coal sizes he had in stock .

The coal was nice and clean, shiney, no junk, and easy to get to. I liked the sizing , he can load up to 18 tons directly from the breaker. So it never has to be handled twice.

Great ppl and place to pick up some quality coal. Only a mile off Rt. 81.

I have never been there,i always send my farmer friend with his truck to pickup coal.I have talked extensively on the phone with fifthg,always enjoy talking with him. I have now burnt 30+ tons of Gale coal,most of it the large rice mix,some nut size also. I will continue to buy my coal from Gale as long as the quality continues as it is currently. Great folks with great prices on great coal.
