I have the utmost respect for what you do. I passed on that path when I was younger and got out of the coal fields of Pike County, Kentucky many years ago, and I am glad I did. It’s a hard life with long, often uncertain hours underground.
I look forward to our next visit, so be safe … I would love to do some more pickin’ with you!

"Sixteen tons and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause i can't go.
I owe my soul to the company store."
I hope mining has changed since those days.
Good luck and take care

I've been more than a few coal mines (selling belt fasteners, belt cutters, etc.,), but all out west where the seams are reasonably high, and never day-in-day-out like you have to do. Best of luck and may you enjoy your eventual retirement, as I am now doing.
