Stoverguy123, The derrick is in good shape for now , until the scrapper find it. Sounds like Coolsprings is in need of all our Wv rusty Gold. Surely Pa has alot of oilfield artifacts in the brush.

Ya but its a lot harder to find stuff like that up hear in Pa anymore... I don't know what it would take to get it out of there or how much it would cost do you have any plans for it?

You're waving a steak in front of some hungry folks!

Went to an old well sites where I had removed the engine years back, spotted a big hook and kicked the leaves back. Found a few treasures. A lot of nice artifacts buried under our feet.
