    They got my attention, until I read the fine print: "all men must register with a registered woman!"

    Help means leading them through the mountains on really crooked roads and where they can see things they have never seen and will probably never see again. How many people have seen an operating coal mine? How many people have experienced meeting a loaded coal truck in a curve? How many people have driven through an old fashioned coal camp? How many people have ridden 200 miles of constant crooked mountain roads?

    I figure that any ride we take will take about twice as long as it would normally because they will want to stop, look and take photos.
