  1. I sure wish I could go but I Going out to Arizona next week.

    The first time I ever used a dry washer was in 1982 at claims called the Burro 1and Burro 11 just outside Randsburg Ca. I was a member or the

    West-end Prospectors at that time and we had an outing there it was also the first time I went prospecting with a certain young Lady who I married two years latter. We got pretty good gold after an older gentleman named Charlie Brown ( no relation to the cartoon ) showed us a few tips. There was a guy there who was showing off his new gadget he called the swirl separator it looked like a cake pan but it got our gold out of the black sand .We also went up in the mountains and toured a tunnel to nowhere dug as a short cut through the mountains but the state built a new road a round the mountains. It was a great week and I got gold every time we went there nothing big but good stuff

    I hope Ya'll have as much fun and luck as I did
