    Bought a new detector..

    Are those, " tail drag marks" from Tahoe Tessie? What is just across the lake, just shy of the far shore, in the water, about 9 o'clock? Ha! Greg

    Nice gold, Adam, I agree with AU Seeker about the nugget sitting at about 11 o'clock in that picture! As for the unknown creature, I was thinking a civet cat, but you can't see the tail. I googled (images) and was schooled in how many color variations there are. Here is a photo that resembles your picture, at least the general head, leg, and foot shape. I don't know, however, if they are found in the area you were in or not. ? Greg

    trash to gold reality

    Nice pictures, Fred, I like the one of your two friends. Like Tom says, "it looks like some pretty barren land." I am always amazed at how they get by, with what seems to me, not near enough water at any given time. Greg

    You bet, Don. They do look interesting. I've got just the place, actually a couple of them, that this just fits the ticket to get a better view of what I need to see. I just have to wait until after the holiday spending for family and grandkids. Then I can sped a little for me!

    7 nugs in one hole

    Priceless picture, Dr.! Have a good print made and put that one on the wall! You get as old as me, and your boy is pushing 40's, you'll be glad you did. Great memories are all we will have, and pictures sure help!! Greg

    Gold lifted

    Very sorry to hear this. Absolutely horrible. darn shame you did not catch them in the act... Is it possible that any nearby businesses might have video of the incident? I sincerely hope that this is brought to a satisfactory conclusion for you and your partner. Greg

    The Opal thread...

    Really nice piece, Steve. IF I did what you do (making jewelry), I don't think I could cut that. Every piece I've ever seen is special in it's own right. Greg

    Outing pics!

    Nice picture, Adam. I like the way you did that. Who'd a'thunk? I like the shadows from the nuggets, too. Greg

    RIP Jerry Hobbs..

    Here it is, Mr. Straight; Tribute to Jerry Hobbs It is with extreme sadness and regret that Public Lands for the People announced the passing of one of its founders, Jerry Hobbs. Jerry passed away peacefully in his sleep Dec. 28th, 2014, after six weeks of struggling with heart issues. He will be missed terribly by Public Lands for the People, the mining community and especially by his family and friends. The Board of Directors for Public Lands for the People pledged to continue to carry the torch in the fight for public lands and mining rights. They have always been committed to doing this, but they are now even more determined to do so in Jerry’s honor. In lieu of flowers, it was Jerry’s wish that people would join PLP; not only donating funds, but getting involved, volunteering to link arms in the cause that he gave his life represented. Some men seem larger than life by their size, others by what they accomplish in life. Jerry was definitely the latter. He accomplished so much in his life for small scale miners, and especially for property rights and for freedom granted us by the Constitution, that any one tribute could not cover it all. Jerry was a mountain of a man when it came to fighting to keep our Public Lands rights, and he stood up to everyone no matter the odds, fighting for what he knew to be right, fair and just. He was a visionary, seeing the onslaught of the environmentalist groups and government regulations long before anyone else hardly had an inkling of the threat to our freedom. He was rare in that he not only identified the threats, but acted proactively to thwart those threats by forming what is now known as Public Lands for the People, a 501-c3 non-profit organization that has been spearheading the fight to restore dredging rights in California over the last 5 years, as well as many other, lesser known battles (with many victories!). Even while lying in his hospital bed, Jerry was more concerned about the affairs of PLP and the legal battles that are underway than his own welfare. Those of us that have known and worked with him over the years were not at all surprised with his dedication to his life’s work, right to the end. You see, these past many years he has dedicated his entire life, morning till night, to helping others. He would often do legal research for anyone that requested answers to public lands/ mining rights/ roads issues. When he wasn’t doing that, he was working on fundraising to keep PLP able to stay in the legal fights. He always had a good sense of humor, except if you were on the wrong side of the issues, then, well, you just don’t cross a man on a mission! Jerry Hobbs, we will miss you. Your legacy will continue in the capable hands and leadership of PLP. We will continue to build on the solid foundation you have laid. We will never give up my friend; for you, for our kids, and for their kids. We will continue to carry the freedom torch in your honor, the one you inspired to be lit in each one of us. You were a rare leader, a man among men; and in many ways, larger than life. We were blessed to be counted among your friends. You are missed. Good bye friend. Ron Kliewer, On behalf of the Board of Directors, Public Lands for the People
