What’s it like to work over 2000 ft below the surface? I got a taste when I went below with several miners. Overall, the most frightening part was the ride back from darkness to daylight. The mine ceiling was at least a couple of feet above my head, but I kept ducking because we were moving pretty fast during our exit. It is beautiful country down there in Appalachia. I was hoping to hear some live music, but all I got was a CD form one of the local groups. Nice to be back up on top.
