Depending on where you are, I get good coal from the tipple in Shelocta.
Since no coal is mined in Armstrong County anymore, he has it hauled in from W Va.
yea im in North eastern PA. so thats a 5 hour drive. and with the rise in bit price it would essentially cost the same if not more to do the round trip. compared to just having anthracite delivered. i hate the fact this political nonsense has screwed us little people

When I first came to this forum, almost everybody tried to get me to use anthracite.

But, it's non-existent in this part of the state.

Politicians have been screwing us little people forever.
Both parties.

Just heard the other day their newest climate scam.
They want to block out the sun to stop temps rising

i hear ya, i actually inquired at the fisher mine but i guess they said they are closing down.
Wow that's a bummer, I have about a ton of the fisher nut and actually enjoy burning it, although in my Saey Harmony it doesn't do well, it did nice in my old woodford. I was looking forward to burning it my Van Wert hand fired boiler this winter... :cry:
