We have been traveling and training all week. We started off at Jesco in Newburgh for some new miner training. They have a great location there with a good group of guys. And Jay was even nice enough to give us a tour of his maintenance shop and let us take a few pictues. Thanks Jay! Today’s training is MSHA Annual Refresher and First Aid and CPR Training and we’re right next to the Orange County Choppers building. Boy do they have some amazing bikes! Tomorrow rounds out our week in East Greenbush for another round of MSHA Annual Refresher and First Aid and CPR training. It’s sure to be another group of great guys for a fun filled day.
