  2. Well, I am just about packed and ready for my return trip down to Uruacu. Leaving Thursday morning at 0715 and will not see Don until Friday at 1730. Going to take a round about way and a long layover to save $800 on airfare! 35 hours of travel is going to be a grind, but I am staying a whole 6 weeks this year. Just could not teach Don all the fine points of beer quaffing in a 4 week trip last year. Don has some great spots zeroed in for detecting and if all works out right we might even get his 5" dredge wet! Much effort is going to be put in to best Ken's 32 oz'er Let the adventure begin............YAHOOOOOO

  7. The 120 acre claim Wes and I have in Iowa Hill is a whacko shape also. It is legally described by government parcel numbers that were created when much of the land near it was government surveyed for patents. If memory serves me correct it has 15 or 16 corners

    ArcticDave's Legal Eagle XL

    Well Dang everyone. just finished reading the entire thread. Dave, it is coming along very well. One comment, if you have the means($$$) to use a magneto do it, It would be far superior to a distributor, especially for prop starting. Not to mention reliability issues. Personally I would never ever want to depend on a battery to keep the motor running. I'll be here a bunch more to see the progress......and of course throw in my 2cents

    I have always wanted one of these and picked this up. A little zeroing in and it's deadly accurate out to 30 yards. Shoots a 100 grain bolt at 370fps. I have not shot it further yet but will soon. Going to try to behead a turkey this fall. Anyone else here shoot these?

    Montana bound

    Was a fantastic trip. Montana is flat out Amazing. Came back with a bit of gold and a nice pile of Montana Sapphires. The place we dredged was not that far from the water source, a glacier and the water was 38 degrees. After three days, the old 70 year old body just could not deal with that temp anymore. If we go again, a wet suit heater should fix that. Glacier National Park is friggin beyond description. Montana people are friendly beyond description and they made the trip even better. Our favorite town was Philipsburg where we screened for sapphires. Wallet got a bit lighter but we found more than 300 carats, some in the 2 1/2 to 3 carat range I did leave some to be heat treated and cut. I hope to end up with 6-8 carats of near perfect blue stones. I still have not uploaded the pics to the computer. We saw many animals, both in and out of the parks. I did not get to see a Moose, but Dee did on a run to town for supplies. Even got to see a small herd of Mountain Goats.

    Entertaining photo....

    It means cut this sign down with the jagged edge saw on the bottom so it will be legal to what people have been doing for hundreds of years

    Mystery Wires

    looking at the wires, some have a corrugated pattern and some are straighter. I would guess they were originally together in a weaved pattern and may have been a screen of some sort.....If they are brittle that might indicate some nickle in the alloy and that is why they might not rust that much....just a WAG.

    Its is called a Crosspoint Sniper 370 mad by the Crossman Company famous for air rifles & Cabelas sells it. I researched these things for a long time. I certainly did not want to spend a grand or more for one that is capable of shooting more than 350 fps. I also went to stores and tried was not happy with the fit of many fixed stock units. When I sow how adjustable the Stock and for-end were, how fast it shot, was made in the USA by a reputable company and it was available for $300 or less I was sold. I have not been disappointed at all. http://www.cabelas.com/product/CENTER-POINT-SNIPER-CAMO-CROSSBOW-PACKAGE/2359254.uts?searchPath=%2Fbrowse.cmd%3FcategoryId%3D734095080%26CQ_search%3Dcrosspoint%2Bsniper%2B370%26CQ_st%3Db http://www.crosman.com/archery/centerpoint-crossbows/sniper-370-camo

    Silver Detector

    Bet you wondered what that was? A Lady detectorist in Virginia asked for one of these and here is what she got. It was fun to make.
