  8. Ok, guys, gals and kids...grab a drink and enjoy the ride So, it starts out with meeting Arctic Dave and James after much google earth chat.............We are going to go into a spot I found at the outing and poke around. Dave says...Hey! there is a shorter way in there...so I trust him...shorter does NOT mean easier!!!.. We get to a spot where im watching James hang off the side of the Rhino to keep its feet on ground so they can get out of it.. Now its my turn. After sliding down into this gulch in the road 3 times we decide to build a ramp to get my YOTO out of it. Lots of rock and dirt............... After the build, im crawling up with Dave pointing me where to go......my puker facter is at about 50...I look at my tilt meter on the dash and its at 30......NICE...im at the tipping point...but the YOTO is grabbing and I shoot up and out of the mess to find a nice flat spot. James tells me afterwards Dood! your left wheels were coming off the ground....NO CHIT!!!! My balloon knot told me that! Whew... I knew if I did flip I would not go far...just into the bank..but would have to do some sheet metal repair. So,out of that and we are on are way Smooth skooting after that. Get to the area and detect a lot......got lots of old lead and trash , so its a nice area that has not been hunted. After coming down the mountain I wanted to stop at my area I found during the outing. Im not to good at hard rock/vien type stuff so I asked Dave what he thought of a vein I found and if this is what you look for? Heck Yah!!............that is what your looking for he said. So. I took a couple of pieces of it out and took it home. Crushed it up and well............................Lo and behold there was a nice flake in it. Yup....gonna go back and beep it with the monster and dig a little deeper. All in a days worth or fun Tom H.

  10. Hey Doc....one good thing....when we get all this crap cut out, it tightens up our wrinkles Tom H.

    Advise please

    Nice gold! I dont know...a PI may have heard that big nugget if it was laying flat. Good luck to ya. Come to the outing and learn some more from all the guys and gals. Tom H.
  12. Just tell em you got into a fight with Conner McGregor ...............that what my story is after next week. My Lip is going to look like heck, but its better than the alternative Tom H.
  13. Glad you posted this Doc. So true. I always wear a floppy hat and long sleeves. But.............I did a lot of damage to myself as a kid/young adult and have had melenoma cut off my arm. I just had squamius cell cut off my lip yesterday for a biopsy and will have to go back for removal of the rest. Possibly something going on with my right wrist...waiting on the biopsy. Slather up with sun screen and DONT FORGET YOUR LIPS!!!! This is NOT fun. I look like Godzilla right now. Tom H.

    Working on the YOTO

    About a week or so ago I started out to "clean" the YOTO out and get it all ready for the upcoming prospecting season. Well, one thing led to another and then this happened! Lot of work but well worth it. Have a ton of storage in the sides now and the back is nice and clean. Had to make a map of where everything is stored.I carry a lot of extra stuff in case it breaks down back in the hills. Yah! its done.
