Anyone want to get some KY Bit. or any other soft coals from Ohio/Western PA to burn?

I may be hauling a dump trailer w/ me to the Meet'n Greet May 14th to haul back some of the Hard Coal.

I was thinking, seems a waste to go all the way out empty.

Thompson Bros. Mining is a stones throw from me here and carries many quality coals both soft and hard.

Do a "SEARCH" on here for Thompson and read for yourself.

Anyhow, some buckets or some tons, I''ll consider bringing it East for just a little gas money. :)

Let me know if there's any interest in this. :idea:

That sounds tempting! I'll get back to you on that.
