Got told two weeks ago I was going to have to spend a 7 day rotation out at one of our mines in Illinois. Weird schedule. Worked 2 in wv. Off 3. Work 7 in Illinois. Off 3. Work 2 in wv and off 2. Then back on my normal rotation.

Not looking forward to this. But might be a good chance to check out local craigslist and drag home a treasure!

Anyone near Galatia Illinois?

Well spent my week term in Illinois. Worst part was being away from my wife and kids for 8 days. When I was working in wv I could go home anytime but a 8 hour drive is a bit different than a 2 hour one.

All in all it wasn't bad. Mines were a different place than what I'm used to. No track, all rubber tired diesel transportation. The strata underground is different.

Illinois is about the most boring scenery ever. Flat with lots of corn and soy bean fields. Glad to be back in Ohio!

I think that sums it up pretty well
