Default Been Too Long

Well, it seems like forever since I've posted here. I haven't even been lurking any recently...

I've noticed a lot of changes around here, most look very good.

Anyway, a little update: I am 24 hours of class work and a standardized test away from legally being allowed to become a coal miner in the state of West Virginia. The class is a horrendous 80 hours, but it's worth it in the end.

It's something that's always intrigued me.. My entire life I've always wanted to more about coal, but now pretty soon, I'll actually be in the coal.

How's everyone else?

Sniper, I sent Consol my resume and coverletter, haven't followed up yet though. Their nearest mine to me is about 4 hours, so I'd have to relocate. But if the offered me a job, I'd go.
