  1. I instructed cave and abandoned mine rescue for 17 years in this state and been in most mines around, even have over 400 maps of the big ones. We mapped them ourselves. Never rely on a winch to pull you out because mechanical things always fail and there's little to no warning from it when the load gets snagged etc. Bad air (typically Co2 or methane in AZ) does happen and a lighter will only tell you your about to die. Lighters are useful for determining air flow but much safer ways to do that also. A good multi gas meter is best and you lower the probe or meter itself in first. 3 quality light sources is a MUST. Not a cheap minimag and your cell phone. If no A frame or high line over the shaft then a long edge curtain is a huge help against rock fall and rope damage. From your "plan" I suggest you just stay out to begin with honestly.
  2. Fall zone is already known and I bet many parts made it down.
  3. Got good video of it entering just before 0400 this morning on several of my plants security cameras. Lit us up like daylight for about 2 seconds.
  4. About a month ago we had some bad cold go through the plant and with 300'ish employees pretty much everyone had it. Most got over it quickly as did I then it came back quick and hard last Friday. I could feel it in my chest and started coughing up green crap. Forced myself to go in to work Monday and Tuesday but left early Tuesday when I finally found a Doc that could see me. Doc says... When was your last physical? I reply... At least 8 years ago. Doc says... Are you taking any over the counter med's for this? I reply... I started Amoxicillin on Sunday. Doc says... Who prescribed it? I reply... ME. Doc says... Where did you get it from. I reply... The pet store. Doc says... You should never self medicate and is clearly not happy. Says I have walking Pneumonia and writes me a script for more expensive... Amoxicillin True story!
  5. North Phoenix but I'll drive to get it. Any ideas where to get a real piece of coal local?
  6. Its a 2012.5 and makes 450 hp and 850 ft lb's. Has 20K on it and in perfect condition and Dodge certified. Even the seats are air conditioned. Tried to get it stuck in sugar sand yesterday and it didn't even spin a tire dragging itself out. Lap of luxury riding in it yet it can perform like my old truck.
  7. The only option I don't have is the snow plow. LOL The HO Cummins 6.7L, lockers you name it. Quite an upgrade from my 15 yr old truck and cannot wait to get its first Arizona pin striping going into the mine. Sure hope the Mega Elnino gives us the needed water this winter! Lift kit, bed cover and tires go on next week.
  8. I made such a mistake as the EPA did... I would be in jail and court with huge reclamation costs etc. I bet they find from their "caged fish" that its just normal turbidity and no problem, nothing to see here now move along. http://www.foxnews.com/science/2015/08/07/river-in-colorado-now-looks-like-this/

  10. That gold looks like stuff I've found before. You need to spend a day over my way soon, before it gets hotter.
  11. Another "company" that recently filed over me has an address recorded with the county of "123 Somewhere", Prsecott, AZ. Is the county now hiring ex burger flippers? Who records that kind of documents?
  12. Their claim papers are very suspect in my opinion and they are spending bunches of filing fees on just barren dirt, why?
  13. Yesterday I put out about 1/3rd of the garden plants to make more room in the grow room. They are just out growing the hydroponics way to fast in the room and we have no more space under the lights. Heck I'm harvesting chile's and peppers inside already. Hope we don't get any more frosts this year and the long range outlook looks good.
  14. I formed a bowl when I dug it out that drains into the 24" dry well that goes through the caliche so drainage should be good.
