  1. I'll never forget the circumsance during the time I served, I could right a book.....to many good people lost, some of which I had fist fights with and later became friends.....that never came home! Thank God my Dad came back from WWII or I wouldn't be here. Cheers and a Beer to the Vets past and present Gary
  2. Frank has entered into the AZ Gold Ballroom and I send my congratulations from the neiboring State of CA.....SGT has entered the building Glad to see you found a 'good spot' to hang your stripes on.....and you must be a hell of a lot better with "wifey politics" than I am! :yuk-yuk: If you need a hand I'm up for a conversation! Gary
  3. Ah, typical BB again.....playing both sides of the fence again in order to agitate and get the entire thread pulled down as Skip has already eluded to! Gee I remember when the term "wetback back" and "white boy" or "whop" or etc. was coined.....ah hell, none are racist terms :hmmmmm: according to the logic of Bob which he now tries to excuse himself from saying! :yuk-yuk: Gary
  4. Great to hear that Frank, that young energy is a great reflection on his part after going through everything, past and present! Gary
  5. Don't mean to hi-jack the thread on the ear-buds guys.....but don't you just love "global warming"! Dang, look-out for that spring flooding and all that "natural" stuff that happens in those salmaon rivers without those nasty "dredgers" messing things up for everyone! :yuk-yuk: Darin, Eldorado and Garimpo will stear you straight on the "buds".....take care! Gary
  6. Frank, Blessings and prayers come from my family to your side as well. Gary
  7. Dave, It was great talking with you and I want to thank you again for the info. We got back today at 3:30 PDT and are “fried”! It was a good show with 2070 announced in attendance on Saturday. Sunday is always a bit slow but the turn out was good. I was also hoping to catch-up with ‘frank c.’ I think his drywashers would have done well at the show! I pulled that site you gave me back up tonight and dug into it further, the first time I went through it I really got into the pictures and the “destruction” of historical sites and the reason for keeping them off the books! As the older side of me kicks-in, CRS has its drawbacks.....but heck, I look at it as a badge I can wear with pride. And, taking into consideration of my younger years of what is going on today from the other side of the spectrum is nothing more than a travisty of events. Thanks again for info Dave, I’m on it! Glad we could chat. Gary
  8. The Milk Bath & The Blonde A blonde heard that milk baths would make her beautiful. So she left a note for her milkman to leave 25 gallons of milk. When the milkman read the note, he felt there must be a mistake...He thought she probably meant 2.5 gallons. So he knocked on the door to clarify the point. The blonde came to the door and the milkman said, ”I found your note asking me to leave 25 gallons of milk. Did you mean 2.5 gallons?" The blonde said, “No, I want 25 gallons. I'm going to fill my bathtub up with milk and take a milk bath so I can look young and beautiful again.” The milkman asked, “Do you want it pasteurized?” The blonde said, “No, just up to my tits. I can splash it on my eyes.”
  9. I Like the "z" aspect, but hell the last thing I want to computerize is the "pot".....I can just imagine all sorts of turmoil happening e.g. press "S" to download or "F" to flush or "P" for 'print screen'.....!?? :hahaha: Just the music Don, just the music and I'm not talking about.....I'll keep it at that! Gary Hey Largo, I remember that song well.....and "ah yes" great memories to the degree of applications. Looking back is a bitch (no offence to the ladies) to a man at times!
  10. Sorry Don for the late reply.....I can only remember some by the lyrics, Eagles.....Take it Easy Beach Boys.....Good Vibrations Journey.....Don't stop thinking about tomorrow. I may be able to retrieve some of your lost "tune-age" if its in a windows file. Gary
  11. Don, Since you seem to have a good source of great "tunes", can you create a "request link" of sorts for furum members requesting a tune.....? Hell you could DJ it also! This one goes out to.....!?? Gary
  12. Garimpo, had to throw this in for some dang reason.....here goes, Think about this: 1. Cows 2. The Constitution 3. The Ten Commandments ------------------------------------------------------------------------ COWS Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington ? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE CONSTITUTION They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq .... Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE 10 COMMANDMENTS The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse or Congress is this -- you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians .... it creates a hostile work environment.
  13. Skip, I find it difficult to Not further comment regarding the underlying matter surronding the well-wishes of the original birthday thread for Eldorado. That said, thanks Skip for bringing this up again! Again Steve, many Nuggets and good Beer with friends a family. Gary
  14. I also echo Slims words, I did call PLP today and was told they had Not heard of this event but were willing to take a further look-see if I was able to provide more info from those more in the know on the matter. I emailed them again tonight and said, at this time it's a pretty mute issue because the fine was paid. This is the type of event that needs to receive publication time in a magazine or internet news article before the liberal news publications get wind of it and "spin" their wheels off with their slant on things, hell that's probally already in the works! Al C, to you and yours I wish the best in all your endevors. It is my deepest hope that a some point this nonsense gets resolved or at least finds an ankle bracelet firmly attached to it! Gary
  15. Chris, Good show, nice to see you back in action again but where in the world do you find the time to do this, geezzz can I have your job? :yuk-yuk: All in all a great education for everyone. Those History Channel producers / rascals sure took some "liberties" with some of the cartoons or graphics on the astrological "peppering theory" of gold being deposited on earth from an explosion outside our doors. I say this Not from any religious holdings I may have, but my own knowledge of galaxys and the creation of planets within our solar system. I see this only as cosmic speculation and nothing definitive from a geological standpoint here on earth. Yet..... The show was very good beyond that hic-up from my point of view. It instilled in others to "look" first and if you find something that seems to be a bit abnormal, look deeper! From my own readings in books I could now "see the vein structures" dipicted in film with the greenstone on both sides of the quartz vein to include some minor shale occurance. The extent of that one quartz vein in the backround or behind you in one segment of the show was unbelievable. I guess we all have an "idea" where that claim / property may be but..... Chris, thanks for the heads-up on the shows airing, I'm very glad I watched it. It shead a lot of light on the geological structures one could ignore during a "hunt". Gary
  16. Denny, Good to hear you are up and running or walking again after the knee surgury. Also nice to see Joe posting again. I’ve read the three threads here on Al’s recent saga with the FS and like John B and others I’m pissed as well, because the entire matter was taken way beyond the rules and regulations as interpreted by one FS ranger / district and in my opinion Federal law reletive to prospecting on public lands with a metal detector. In all due respect to your above quote, I for one do hope the FS people see this discussion on the forum (I’m sure they’ve already tapped into it by now) and other forums where its posted. This is a matter which should Not be taken lightly by anyone using our public lands. If the FS is allowed to prevail via “simply paying the citation”, our legal rights will continue to errode and this matter will spread like a cancer to other FS districts around the country. Also pissing off a FS ranger implies prior intent to willfully do so. With that in mind, to willfully destroy, keep, etc. Historic Artifacts also implies the same! I’ve said this before on one of the other threads here, this “ranger” was way out of line with the laws / regulations and if this matter was further persued in court against the FS, the prosecutions burden of proof would “fail” to the benefit of Al the defendant! If Al needs help in fighting this I’ll contact Jerry Hobbs at the PLP and we’ll donate $100.00 to the organization on Al’s behalf. I’m on the same page with Sawmill, LL and others here from a legal standpoint. And thanks John B for bringing this to our attention! BTW, Al I have a question, did the ranger confiscate the “trash” that you were cited for or do you still have it in your possession, and / or was each piece of “trash” cataloged by the ranger in the citation issued? Gary
  17. Awhile back Reno Chris posted some great information to the forums on the Antiquities Act which defined a time-line of sorts of what could be considered a historic artifact and what is just plain trash, bullets, shell casings, bottles etc. I may need to revist his new book and see if this was discussed, I'm sure it was but I haven't got there yet. This bothers me and I agree with Sawmill in that these citations should not be initially paid without further input from a knowlegable legal beagle. I just pulled this link down from the NP service on the net but this cold I currently have is telling me to hit the pillow..... http://www.nps.gov/history/archeology/sites/antiquities/about.htm Gary
  18. John, I hope your friend and fellow forum member wrote down the name and badge number of the ranger if the citation didn't include this info. I would also hope the citation incuded the regulations by number/code that he was in violation of. Also did the ranger confiscate the "trash" as evidence of the violation to the regs? I'd also like to know who this rangers supervisor is and who his supervisors supervisor is as well! Gary
  19. Frank, Absoltely beautiful work .....saw the other pic as well, we need to have a chat if your good for it! Click on my signature and send me an email. Gary
  20. Hi John, I wanted to pass this on to you as there is court precedent on the filings of a NOI and POO regarding the FS regs. since, in my own small world, I’m trying to stop this sort of crap from happening. I continue to follow the forums and do research as much as possible related to our mining rights. The following is a recent post / quote by AK Jim a.k.a. Jim Foley from his forum relating to this issue..... My advice to anyone who asks about this issue is; DO NOT FILE AN NOI unless you decide that it is necessary. Miners down here fought long and hard, at great expense, to get the court ruling that says you do not have to file an NOI unless you are creating a significant surface disturbance. This is defined as; Using heavy equipment and/or cutting trees. FS rangers will still try to make you think you need to have one, but they cannot force you to get one, nor can they cite you for not getting one. I know from living in Alaska for many years that you folks up there are somewhat insulated from a lot of this stuff. But the miners down here have fought long and hard with the USFS and finally had to go to court to win. Filing an NOI is opening the door for the FS to demand a POO. If you have to file a POO this opens the door for them to criminally cite you for any infraction of the POO. The determination to file or not to file an NOI is the prerogative of the individual operator, not the FS. Here is a link to the court decision, so you can read it for yourself: http://www.goldgold.com/legal/McClureDecision.pdf Here is Dave McCracken's explanation of the court order: http://www.goldgold.com/legal/davesexplanation.htm The entire thread where Jim makes this comment is located here..... http://bb.bbboy.net/alaskagoldforum-viewthread?forum=2&thread=612 Hope this might help! Gary
  21. Geez Gary, I didn't realize we're only a few months apart on celebrating our 61st, had mine in December last year.....hope all is well and you get out and are able to hunt soon. As far as rain goes we had the skies really open up on Saturday here in SoCal where we're at. Wishing you the best and a Happy Birthday! Gary BTW, most of the issues with these new forum formats are due to the use of the "internet exploreer" browser on ones computer, google is the best way go and it's very fast.
  22. Hey Lanny, I love the stories and it's my wish that they could be "pinned" to the top dedicated to your adventures. Good stuff! Gary
  23. Lanny, In many respects your question begs to a "comfort zone" where the owners of these ML series of detectors you mention feel "free in the hunt" in knowing their machine! I'm sure many of the owners of these detectors you mention have found their own ways of "tweeking" their machine for optimal performace under the conditions of the hunting territory. I know that some here on the forum stick by the older ML developements as in the SD2100 and love it. I've followed posts from a number of people to include Uncle Ron, Montana, Grubstake, Pondman Mike, Matt, Shep, R. Chris, L. Lundy, Garimpo, Eldorado to name a few, each having different models of ML detectors with each of these people having to go through a "learning curve" in the beginning. As to "stength and weakness", a guy could also make that same decision as to the lady of his choice who keeps him purring.....bottom line, "comfort zones" and "tweeking" produce results and having a great additude goes a long way. :twocents: Gary
  24. Frank, Anything to update us on, I'm looking forward to your progress! Gary Don-
  25. Blake, saw what you did.....I love it thanks! Gary
