I bet a lot of graphite was mined from the "No. 2" shaft.....

By Aaron Rice (Woodchuck) on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 - 07:33 am:

Good one Capt. Paul. Made me smile this morn.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 - 07:38 am:

You are really sharp today Capt Paul.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 - 09:28 am:

I was wondering if anyone was going to pick up on that, or if it was too early in the morning for the brain to function properly.... ;-)

I know the sign reads "3,100 + feet", but I believe that shaft was actually much deeper. I will have to do a little research from my information at home this evening and report back.

Took me a bit, but I finally got the "point"

Love the 'itty-bitty' AirStream next to the Bucket...always wanted one of 'em. And yep, I finally got Capt. Paul's "point". Guess I'm runnin' a little slow this morning.

One question? Did Captain Paul get the lead out of his "pencil"? Another question, "what does he use to sharpen it"?

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 - 04:10 pm:

All good photos.

When i saw Capt Paul's comment i thought: "there's an age cut-off below which no one is going to catch the reference!" Didn't factor in the 'not awake' angle for people who sleep in passed 4am!

What a beautiful picture of the Buckett. My Grandparents home was across the street. The corner house on Phoenix Street.

Thankyou Charlie for bringing back some great memories.
