    • Sweet shiny stuff  . Is that one clean out , or a days of hard work ?  
    • Bob said to ask forgiveness and not permission.  To be clear I dont look for open ground to prospect. I look for the best ground to prospect and do what I need to do to get on it. That is often patented land and/or corporate claims. Lots of guys hyper focus on land status and finding "open" areas. My advice is to focus on inroads to the best areas. It is easier to find a spot you can work on excellent ground than it is to find gold on crappy ground.  The best areas are claimed. The guys who get the gold work those areas. If you want to be one of those guys you gotta work those areas too.  If you are just shaking a pan for a few colors then a club is the best bet.  Developing inroads to good ground will pay off much better than finding an unclaimed area. At least for a new guy. Someone who knows a district and has wide experience at finding gold may locate some unclaimed ground to work. But a newbie needs to learn to work gold on producing ground and then tackle the hinterlands. Again just my opinion. I have never found any gold and I probably don't even know what I am talking about. All I know about it I learned on the internet.    
    • I'm back everyone, I didn't find anything because i didn't even make it to the destination. But close. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. My girlfriend hated every bit of it, lol. She also slipped and fell on the GM1000, scraped herself up and now the GM1000 wobbles a hair. I wont even go into the complaining I heard about walking up the hills. 🙂 I got there at about 11:30am temp was about 75F. It was VERY close to highway 87. Decent dirt road to the place where we parked. Continuation to the destination needed a ATV which i didn't have. The walk to the destination is about 3750ft. The area seemed not so touched by man sorta speak. was quiet, saw a prospector come out on a ATV and rode past us. I started at the purple box. I ended up at the light blue box. (notice the white turn in the wash, i have a picture) The red box was my actual destination. I think i'm going to get a Honda Pioneer 500. I can't be spending my whole time walking to these claims. 🙂 Here below is what the new area looks like. I'm to new to determine if this location looks good, but i'm guessing it looks good.    
    • Nice pan Grim👍
    • We did the gas chamber in boot camp, then every year, never had my brain destroyed, still empathetic. Afterward, trying to recover, deal with the irritation, but all faculties still functioning. Didn't see any zombies, just guys with red watery eyes blowing their noses and hitting the showers-cold water felt great.
