  1. It was pretty bad there for a while, hope things do get better now.
  2. The placer history, covers amount and size of nuggets recovered at Rich Hill, Goodman wash, other placer mining operations.

  10. Oh, he already has been out getting things in the garden started. I got pictures of him running the rototiller from the upstairs window.
  11. My dad turns 90 years, I think next month. He still has been coughing a lot at times and won't get tested.
  12. Gold prospecting never was easy, but this makes it tougher than...
