  1. Praying for the best. Its's beatable, I'm proof as I beat it in 2010. Just went through the tests again and got the NO SIGN of anything. Throat cancer here. Good luck! John
  2. A pair of Hodgemans is all I wear. Having spent 40 years winter Steelhead fishing in the Northwest waters it was a great day when neopreme waders came out!! My waders fit tite enough(read I'm fat enough) I don't need a belt, but allways had one on because it held my bait box. I don't think you can even buy felts in Washington anymore. Not only that but they have check station where if your towing a boat you must pull in for inspection. On I-5 south of Portland at the Port of Entry truck weigh station ALL out state vehicles towing boats must stop. Sorry for getting of topic.. Just get a set of
  3. What he didn't tell you was the some places on the wet side hit 70 degrees. Even I got out and hit the Stilly with son and Grandkids. Easter Pannig. No Golden Eggs though.
  4. I would add to take some of those lead shavings and flatin them with a hammer; even make some tiny ones. Practice getting tiny flat flakes and the bigger rounded one will take care of themselves. and paint em bright.
  5. I have used my dogs fold up water dish I keep in the rig in a pinch. Yup it worked enough to tell me I needed to check that stream a little closer.
  6. I envy you Stan, I'm stuck here in the WET and COLD. Maybe next winter I can go south. Spent the last 2 days puting a fuel pump in the Motorhome, Might get that done today. Had to cut a hole under the bed to get to it. NO WAY that tank was coming out.Tried for 6 hours, Nope it ain't coming out. Alittle rivitting panels and such and it will be good as new. Just get to tinker this winter. Built a highbanker and can't wait for spring to try it out. Hood Canal may get snow this A.M. Yup would love to be South!!!!!!!
  7. Look into WPMA good claims, Also Bedrock Prospectors they have some good claims. Any of the clubs you can join online so thats not a problem. Nice to atend meetings and get to know people, but not mandatory to be a member. WPMA has chapters all around Wa., Big club, lots of friendly folks>
  8. Bedrock I know I Washington and Oregon have County park Rangers, thats the only ones I've had contact with. I'm sure the are a lot more!
  9. Dawned on me that some of you Dessert dwellers may not know what Devils club is. It is a Plant that grows around W. Washington, Ore. B.C. and AK.. My DAD called it HANDY BUSH. The stalks have a thorn that is very brittle and fine. Break off easy. Dad said if you fall and reach to grab something they will move so thats what HANDY to grab, hence the name. The fine thorns are real hard to remove cause they keep breaking off. Real Fun.
  10. Yup SLNugget, You haven't lived till you've done the slime rock dance,hopeing you don't break anything inportant while your feet are REALLY busy trying to find a spot without slime to get traction. All in a fraction of a second. Been on my butt way to many times. Find it easier to bushwhack through the Devils Club than walk Slime Creek!!
  11. Had a rock fall happen across from me while deer hunting one time. Had been watching some MT. goats across the canyon from the clearcut I was in. a little latter heard the popping start and it kept getting louder. and saw a slab of the Mt. start to tilt.(through Binoculars) this slab was the size of a football field atleast! the slab just kept popping and tilting away from the Mt. till it fell striaght away. The sound was deafning when it hit the canyon floor and echoed for a VERY long time. This was in a driange just North of the Ghost Town of Montie Cristo. Often wonder how many Gold or Sil
  12. SLNugget, thanks for that link. Have visited a few of the sites listed. Only mine I have been in is the Black Chief by Red Bridge in Snohomish Co. on the Mt. Loop. I can't do holes in the ground! Often wonder whats in them though, just can't make myself go in.LOL Take the Grandkids exploreing alot around Wa.
  13. My Great Grandfather, John B. Meenach Is buried in the Sawyers Bar Cemetery. He was a Miner and had a cabin there. He passed in 1940 working his claim. We think his claim was on in the Monson Cr. area. Most of that Family History had died. My older Sister has some pictures of my Mother,Grandmother and Uncle playing in the river that she tracked down the swimming hole with. The cabin is gone but with the help of some locals she visited the area.I hope to get there this summer to check ouut the area and atleast dip a pan Was going to last summer but I had a stroke I am 60yrs old..I will be spend

  15. Ya forgot the Window Panes in the Strawberry fields. We must be the same age! Except we had Orange Sunshine.
  16. I have spent the last 45 years Hunting and Fishing aroud Wa. Part of my Hunting gear i carry is a Plastic bag or 2 for the Heart or liver, but it is used more for trash. In my fishing vest it carry a couple of Plastic bags for eggs,but is used for trash on the stream banks. I pickup old shot shells and brass whenevere I see it and pack it out. Trash goes it the Garbage when we dump Brass goes it the barrel for recycle. I like GlenM also put butts in my pocket. Just a habit from Plumbing 1-3 million $ homes. They don't like to see them on the ground. I don't toss em at home either. Allways have

I would love to see what the area has to offer. I am NOT the healthyest person and want you to know that up front. I can get around tho, just not fast! I am 60 years old and recovering from Cancer treatments last winter. Would like to see what drywashing is and try some beeping,but this trip I won't have any gear.(Shopping for a motorhome while threre for future trips)I have a 89 26' class C now but looking for a class A 30-32' a little ne
  18. H John, I bought a 99 Taco from my ex SNL for $500. Needed a 5sp.. CAUSE HE NEVER CHECKED THE FLUID IN IT. $600 for a trans and new Clutch. I sware that was the roughest ride in a 4x4 I ever had! And over the years I have had and rode in many! Thought the axles were welded to the frame. Not a good daily driver. Sold it in July for $2500 and bought a 92 Jeep Cherokeefor $1000. totally stock with 127k on it.Winter I will add a 2" lift and set it up to tow behind my M/H. Drove it to Pheinox and back Labor Day weekend, close to 3000 miles. Like the ride much better! Oh, I have a 97 GMC Yukon als
  19. I love it! Love Minning and Logging History. Spent many hours wandering around in minnig towns and old logging towns here in Washington looking at pictures and wondering about life back then,amazed at what they could do without modern machines. They had TRUE GRITT!!!!
  20. Yep Denny, cross it on I-5 going to town most every day. Just can't get time to look for color!
  21. My niece has been after the wife and I to come down for about 3 years. They would even send tthe tickets to fly down(nephew is a pilot for South West) but my wife can't fly(Breast Cancer,termnal).Main reson I made this trip is to see if she could handle the drive down.Don't think she could even in our Motorhome.A breakdown in the middle of nowhere could be fatal for her!!! Ani't gonna chance it! Been thinking about playing Snowbird but don't know. But somehow I WILL BE BACK!!!!
  22. At the age of 60 I finally got to visit Az. Laborday weekend My Daughter and I made a roadtrip to Pheonix to pick up her car she left there in early Aug. She had big plans to move there with my 14 yearold Grandaughter but thing didn't work out after she flew home.Wow is that country different than here. Drove striaght though from Seattle via Salt Lake City, Flagstaff to Pheonix. Then returned after a 1 day rest via Kingman, Vegas, Reno.To bad I didn't have time to see more of the country as she had to be back to work. But as Arnold say's, "I WILL BE BAAACK"! Often wondered what the mountains
  23. Denny, just go to a teriaki place and buy a bottle for there sauce. that will work just no tube in it.
  24. Did the same here! Many came here for the trees. Don't want you to do anything but LOOK at them. Don't want you to take a Deer or Elk. Just LOOK at em. Banned hound hunting for Bears and Cougars and built houses on the hill tops and complain when the bears are in their yards. Cats are eatting all the deer and elk and now we have Wolves they introduce. But its OK for them to DESTROY the herds cuase thats nature. Samething in Montana and Idaho!! :*&$*(: Rant Over. Gotta go take my blood presure meds!!! PS: I was born here 60 years ago and lived here all my life!!!
