When I was about 12, I lived in Savannah GA for awhile. My mom and I would go grocery shopping at the mall and if I was good, she would give me a couple of dollars to go to the arcade. The arcade in the mall was called The Gold Mine. I loved The Gold Mine! It was a cool idea to have an arcade inside a gold mine! It was dark and had the oil lamps (simulated) on the beams holding up the roof. It really did look like an old Mine. I have always had fond memories of The Gold Mine. So Now I bought my own Gold Mine! (sorry no machines yet) The mine is the "R". It came with a small building 36'X 16' and about 10 Acres. The building was partially renovated (they got started) Pulled wire, insulation, sheet rock and one of two rooms has new tile. It has a wood burning stove but no power no sewer and no water. Well my work is cut out for me. First I will need power. There is no grid power up there. So, we will install a solar system. I have experience with this. I will be installing about 1600 watts of solar panels, an Outback Maximum Point Power Tracker and an Outback 3600 Watt Inverter. That will get the job done and then some. So my plan here is build a small cabin with a couple of machines to start. Then at some point build a 4000 sf house on the pad above the mine. Then the mine will become the "R"cade and I will add more machines. This project will be ongoing and I will post up the progress as I go. Oh and by the way, I just scored myself and Ore Cart this weekend! (very hard to find and pricey if you do!) Thinking about which two games to have to start. I am thinking White Water (had this one and I miss it) This game also has a Mine! Then maybe Fish Tales. (had this one also and miss it as well)
