I think you're gonna hid your stride at the outing in LSD... once you get around people who are finding color it helps with the self confidence greatly, plus if you skunk, you can steal a nuggy from their pan to tell you wife you found.

Is that what that is Andyy..? Phewww..! Good eyes, better than mine at least..

I was havin' a real problem tryin' to figure out how tall the creature is with just the one imprint showin'.. I feel better about Rick headin' back out there now, cos you know how cranky them sentrys get after a few hundred years without so much as a day off much less any vacay time, right..? :yikes::WOW:

Sorry to hear that, my mom passed away a week ago, I feel your loss.

As to the being out alone, that's all I ever am out there, I love it that way.. you just have to be careful of the possible danger..... :ph34r: I just spent the day on Vulture Mine today and had the poop scared out of me by someone trying to help me dig a target..... I don't know spideeees but it was huge and sure looked like a Tare Un Toooooola to me... ZOYKES!!!!

Oh... and watch out for cat claw... they just bounce right down your arm leaving drain holes along the way..shees

I've been in the claw and cholla.  It is my contention that is what makes cowboys and cowgirls tough in Arizona.  It ain't the horses and cows!

The THOUGHT of pulling a lot of that stuff out of a hand, foot, arm, leg, etc is PAINFUL.  Then you still have to do it!

Hey Jen, if you find a pick out there with reflector tape on it... it's mine ... LOL.  Well it was mine :)   I lost it the first week I got it.  Set it down a bit too long.  I hate getting old and forgetful.  :grr01:

I'm guessing so that the person that finds it later could see it better! :idunno:

Hey Jen, I was down around Bumble Bee today and ended up with "Arizona Red-racing stripes" like yours (on the same for-arm too).  kind of bled like-a-stuck-hog.  Put a bit of camphorated oil on it, and it stopped the bleeding real quick.  That taranchula is a Texas brown.  They are harmless.  I had a couple of them for pets in an aquarium.   I don't worry about them, but what I really keep my eyes open for is the scorpions that are very abundant out there.  They scurry out whenever you move large rocks and boulders.  The bark scorpions are very poisonous.  I was stung by a scorpion on my right little pinky finger when I was very young, and I have had, and still have a "zero-tolerance" for arachnids of that type to this day.  If I even see them move,:ROFL: I either smack them with a shovel or the nearest rock.  Gary

Thanks for the info....... glad to know it was harmless... he sure was furry....  cute in a way.

How's the detecting up at Bumble, any good or is it more high banker, dredge country.. it's REAL close to me and I've had my fill of Little (Gold) San Domingo for a while..haha

If you're out there before me, keep an eye out for a set of black and brown leather gloves, they must have fell on the ground as I was loading my truck.. they're probably shacked up with your pick and all the socks that go missing from our dryers.

"High banker and dredge country"?????????????????  You must be thinking of California, or Canada?????  There's not enough water for a high banker, nor a dredge around Bumble Bee.  It remains bone-dry about 80% of the year.  

I like the area between Bumble Bee and Cleater, as the whole area is composed of a rust-red-stained decomposed granite substrata, with many quartz outcroppings, and black-hot-rocks that just pop up out of nowhere.  The whole valley had been hit hard by the early VLF-swingers of the day, so most of the easy-big-stuff is gone.  The Roadrunner's have many claims down in that valley; and although most have been heavily-hammered, you can still find gold on them,......."if you know what you are doing".  Seems to me I heard that you had become a member of the Roadrunners club???  Check out their maps (claims) around Bumble Bee, and those on the way to Cleater.  Gary
