Hello from South Dakota!!!!!
Hey guys and gals. I know I havn't posted anything in a while, but here is a quick update.
I just got hired on at a local mine that is being converted into a science lab. This is an 8000ft deep gold mine that is no longer being mined actively. I will still be an electrician, but instead of doing just 480v and less, I will also be installing transformers and gear for 12kva and up.
I am really excited to learn something new about the trade I love so much. I hope we are allowed to take pics. I would like to post them here for all to see, but I don't know if they allow it or not.
I have to go to 48hrs of MSHA training before I can go underground, but I can't imagine it is a lot different than OSHA training.
If any of you have worked underground before I would really like to hear advice from you.
I start on the 24th and will post some updates as I get the chance. Life gives us so many chances for opportunity. It is our choice to take them!
