I joined the GPAA online and before I received my GPAA card, I printed a copy of the online receipt and brought that with me.  You're supposed to have the card, but I felt in good conscience I was following the intent by prospecting as a paid member with receipt in hand in lieu of the GPAA card.  I would have felt no guilt showing that to someone asking for my claim card, and I'm pretty sure they'd have no problem with me being there.  I wouldn't mind someone using am electronic receipt if I asked him for the card.

I found some good maps of the Gold Basin GPAA claims on line.  The area I went to was beat up pretty well, but the area was huge.  I went to the harder to get to claim in my 4 X 4, but the easier to get to one I probably could have driven my mini van to.

Gold Basin is a location close to Dolan Springs AZ , there are several claims belonging to the Gpaa there.

I really think they've made some improvements.  The online claim guide will be nice once it's up and running.  There's a geo coord (not corners) for each claim in the online database.  It can be referenced with the guide.  It's nice to put in a zip code and see what claims are by where you're going.

If you go to http://www.goldprospectors.org/ and complete the registration, you'll get access to this online site.  The online site can't be used alone, but is a good supplement to the mining guide.

I think that was my first year at Bill's outing and Walt comes back showing that gorgeous piece.  Very inspiring.  Looks like that coil has been through a war!  LOL.

If GB is your main reason to join, and it's a good one..... then may I suggest that you also look into Mohave Prospectors Association and GSSN out of Nevada, I see their claim markers everywhere around here, especially GSSN.
