  1. Kicked the SKUNK.......FINALLY.

    Very nice specie! All good and congrats for getting your kids excited and involved! ... Cheers, Unc
  2. Gold recovery equipment...

    The 151 is sold...The dredge is still available. Cheers, Unc
  3. On Dodie's and my first trip into LSD nearly 20 years ago, we had a tie-rod break ... We hiked to the windmill to get some bailing wire but it was about 115 degrees and difficult to lie on the ground ... Plus I was having multiple small heart attacks but didn't realize what was going on.... Someone finally came along and begrudgingly gave us a ride to Morristown hotel where we could call for a tow truck ... Could have turned out a lot worse! ... Cheers, Unc
  4. Morning Uncle Ron: 
    Referring to your post about me contacting Ruben Garcia, yes we were talking about it shortly after I found the iron. In fact I was 
    telling Ruben how difficult it is shipping stuff out of Brazil and he assured me if I could get it to the USA legally he would buy it. 

    Come to find out a meteorite isn't considered a mineral as is gold so all I had to do was pay the $2400.00 for shipping on DHL
    to OKC and that's what I did. 

    Then Ruben bailed!

    Since I don't have a lot of names of meteorite collectors it's still just stored in OKC. One guy contacted the friend that's storing it and said he
    would go to OKC to inspect it but never showed up. 

    So thanks for the post Ron. 

  5. Current Mining Claim Forms???

    Here's one more try for forms: https://www.blm.gov/services/electronic-forms
  6. Current Mining Claim Forms???

    So here's the email I got from the BLM lady...the link worked for me and I've downloaded the forms but now I can't... Per your request, please reply to this email so I know you received it. Thank you! 🤓 http://repository.azgs.az.gov/sites/default/files/dlio/files/nid1580/ofr-14-05_miningclaimsforms_final_0.pdf Tina M. Coladonato Sr. Public Contact Rep. AZSO - BLM
  7. Current Mining Claim Forms???

    Yes, that the one on the link I posted....but in rechecking, I see what you're saying...The BLM lady seemed confused but after a while got me this link: http://repository.azgs.az.gov/sites/default/files/dlio/files/nid1580/ofr-14-05_miningclaimsforms_final_0.pdf I was able to find it in a ridiculously long list of oil lease, etc., forms (typical govt. efficiency) It's way down the page... Cheers, Unc Well crap, it shifted again...Govt bureaucracy at its finest!
  8. Current Mining Claim Forms???

    Barry, this form, 3830-2 Maintenance Fee Waiver Certification, is the one I put the link to above and it is the approved one you describe...Cheers, Unc
  9. Current Mining Claim Forms???

    Kwah, BLM took them down and didn't put them back up until I called them ... The nice lady at BLM was surprised that they didn't have them up and several things are in disarray with their IT dept...Can't use the old forms because they expired and they won''t accept them... Cheers, Unc
  10. Current Mining Claim Forms???

    Well, I called the Phx BLM office and found out the link wasn't even posted yet, but they sent me the link...I guess they just now made it live and it includes dozens and dozens of forms including small miner waiver and POL forms...Kinda late for them to be getting the forms available to us: Here's the link: http://repository.azgs.az.gov/sites/default/files/dlio/files/nid1580/ofr-14-05_miningclaimsforms_final_0.pdf Cheers, Unc
  11. Does anyone have a link to the current mining claim forms? Every BLM site post a link that is dead or non-functioning so I can't get my small miner's waiver form downloaded & printed? Help! Cheers, Unc
  12. Shep's Birthday Today

    Happy Birthday, Shep...We gonna see you at the Nov. outing? ... Cheers, Unc
  13. Google Earth Issues!

    I finally uninstalled everything on my computer and then went to the GE home page and downloaded the old version after they sent me a helpful email on new set up and it's working pretty good now...some of the original features and tools disappeared but the basic GE is working OK ... It did up date to March of 2017 for images ... I lost some options but after this struggle I'm not going to mess with it...It added a butt-load of "favorites" that I don't want, but screw it... I can resume my aerial prospecting with it... Cheers, Unc
  14. Google Earth Issues!

    I can't even get GE to open without a message saying "GE has encountered problems and must close"...I tried deleting and reloading but it just won't work! Bummed because I use it alot, like most folks on here! ... Cheers, Unc
  15. Google Earth Issues!

    Yo All...Does anyone know what's going on with Google Earth? I noticed a change on my phone a couple weeks ago and now on my main puter it's totally funky... I've basically lost it and it won't do a new working download...Just thrashed! ... I'm bummed! Can anyone offer any wisdom or help here? Thanks, Cheers, Unc
