    Mohave County: Flash Flooding Stupidity

    I presume most people reading this forum are smart enough to avoid getting caught in a flooded wash but there's lots of folks that aren't. Here's some current road reports along with some photos.... https://twitter.com/mohaveroads

    $80 A Ton -- No Processing Required

    I knew of a real estate company which bought some property that had high rolling hills on it. The hills made building on the land a problem but they know of another land owner who needed lots of fill so they bought the land and sold the hills for fill. In the process, they leveled their land and ended up with millions of dollars in profit.

    Does it look like gold?

    Obviously one-of-a-kind. Why use anything except real gold?

    Where does gold come from? with AZ Nugget Bob...

    Our progress has been phenomenal and it continues to build speed. I stood in line at a computer store in 1995 to MS Windows 95 when it first came out and it was at that point when I was first able to access the internet. There was nothing on the internet at that point, but the groundwork had been laid. The opportunity was there. Advances in productivity followed along with the sharing of information. Technology in all forms began to advance at a faster and faster pace. Gold continued to disappear at a faster and faster pace as internet prospecting forums opened up (Thank you Bill Southern!) and advances in metal detectors enabled miners to be more productive. There is no doubt that space is the new frontier, and about the only thing that could stop progress here on Earth is an asteroid. Is there intelligent life on other planets that is similar to humans? At the rate we are going there will be answers very soon and it won't be long and we will have the ability to send humans to habitable planets inside or outside our solar system.

    Those Mormon crickets you run over in those desert areas are worth 25 cents each if you can keep them alive and know where to sell them. Here's a map that shows where you can find buyers... http://www.pikeminnow.org/station-directions

    Detecting hat

    The Sombrero hat was invented in Sombrero, Mexico because of all the quicksand down there. People wore them so searchers would know where to dig if they disappeared.

    Detecting hat

    You can use safety pins to attach fabric to any hat for increased protection from the sun.

    Hi Fred. I'm still out west. Doing ok. #I'd crawl from Jungo all the way to Rye Patch -- maybe even Gold Basin -- for a bowl of your chile verde!

    And didn't a couple members claim all the land around that CA claim -- for themselves?

    Chris, didn't you contribute 2 claims to the club? One in NV and one in CA?

    It took a lot of work to get the WSPA off and running and I'm sure it takes work to keep it going. It was -- and still is -- a good idea. Like Flak says, changes were inevitable.
