Burning rock is bringing in more business into that area. Have you noticed the changes at Bub's Cycle lately? People in that area need find a way to cater to the visitors that come into the area. And make money too.

it unfortunately is the risk you take when you lease, I have a lease with beaver coal and it states right in the contract that the land is to be used for farming only and that can be changed or cancelled at any time etc etc.

Burning rock dosent bring anything to the area but noise. The only one making money is beaver coal. For your info bubs moved because his location sucked. Did you know his parents got killed in front of the old location. It was a terrible location,I have yet to see one business that spun off of burning rock.I agree make beaver coal pay!

Well sam what did you do buy you a cheeseburger big deal they would have sold that without you. The only place you spent money was when you give it to woody and emmit and the land baron. LOL THE 3 stooges !

Sorry to hear about Bub's heart aches. Their business has grown and is growing every day. And mostly due to the help of Burning Rock bringing customers. I wish Bub's and Burning Rock the BEST OF THE BEST. America was not discovered. It was built by business people. It not a sin to make money.

Beaver Land I'm sure would sell you as much land as you chose, if you'd like a say in the matter of how it's used.
I for one, am glad Burning Rock is there. You know why? Because there would be absolutely NOTHING else there. And from what I've seen, the money goes right back into the facility. Maintaining trails, the ziplines, etc.
Regardless of whether you like beaver land or not, they own the property. Period. It's their right to use it how they see fit, just as much as you can your own home. Those with leases that have been supposedly kicked out? Unfortunately, that's the price you pay and should be prepared for when you lease instead of own.
At least this company is reinvesting in this area. I don't see you or anyone else with the capital to provide something of this nature. Burning rock provides not only a place for those out of state to come and enjoy our beautiful landscape, but they also bring tourist dollars with them. It also gains us exposure with things like Fischer's ATV world, etc. Same as the Hatfield Mccoy trail, just on a smaller scale. I'm assuming the land companies that own most of the land for hatfield and mccoy are bastards too? Pocahantas land comes to mind as one of them.
I for one am glad SOMETHING is here. It's better than nothing at all. And while Beaver land may be a "land baron" at least we get something back for it, unlike the generations of coal barons who have raped our entire state for generations.

Good work Burning Rock. For taking a slate pile and turning it into a tourist attraction. And bringing jobs and money into the area. Keep up the good work.
