I love that I can wear jeans everyday, do a bunch of different interesting things, be autonomous, work with mostly men (BIG bonus) , and 99% of the time I am on the surface and not underground.

What's not to like!?
oh yeah....getting up at 5:30 AM
...that is taking a bit of getting used to!
I go down into the mine tomorrow on a tour. 3200 feet down. Gulp.
I will take pictures and do a little report. Some may find it a bit interesting.
