Funny how watching this removed much of my hankering to be back working underground. The last time I was in a raise was in 1988 in one being put up by the Daniels, and I remember thinking that it wasn't the most relaxing way to earn a living. IP: 2.29.253.82

The only plus with raising was that no one seems to want to bother you up there.
