  1. frank c, Boy, the dinks have grown some since I had a go at one.
  2. Thanks, Before I came down with the gold fever, I truly enjoyed carving, but no more, The hunt for Gold is ever on my mind. I Too, Will, Something Find, And glorry in the finding.
  3. No problem, When my Dad told me that he would teach me every thing I would need to know, And get out there in that cotton patch & hoe that cotton He should have included some of that ancient Latin.
  4. Caveat emptor? John, There has to be a another Red Necks on this forum besides me, you are going to force me to look that one up.
  5. I admire you & your Buddy's fortitude, It took time & energy to set up a great camp like that in that heat, & it sure paid off. I could never stay in one spot, had to see what was over the yonder hill. I left more gold than I ever found. WTG
  6. John, I was well paid for hair that I lost, There was places that i would lay awake at night trying to figure how to get rid of the sage brush where I had found nuggets before. Problem solved, some places were great & some not so. you would hate Rye Patch after the fire, there were coon tails every where, no place for them to hide.
  7. Allen, I sold Garrets when I first quit working at jobs that I hated. I carved him a carving out of an old log. don't remember if it was any good or not, I was hoping to get a better hole sale price, it must of been lousy for the price staid the same. Image is the last carving I did when I found out there was gold laying out in the Deserts waiting for some one to come along & give them a new home. PS, carving is carved out of Bristle Cone. I was told that it is one of the oldest living trees, & that there was one in Calif. that was over 5500 yrs old. I think I have shown you guys this thing before, Suffer.
  8. Yes, frank c & the less we can take. we can get back to talking about the gold that we hope to get.
  9. Thanks, azblackbird for your concern, I think every thing is looking up.
  10. Allen we were parked on a little clear hill in a Silver streak trailer & every one was leaving but we going to ride it out, Gracie had her broom & I had a shovel, Bryan stop-ed on the way out & warned us to get our old asses out of there for if the fire didn't get us the smoke would, the black smoke was coming over Majuba MT. heading our way, we lost our i cool & Bryan helped us hook up & left. Gracie had never puled a trailer & she straitened out that road out of there,Two tires shot to hell but she got er done, I was driving my 4 wheeler& made it though the fire that covered the road going out of Rye Patch but on the road to Emlay ran into a much larger fire that covered the road & then some, ONLY THING i NEW TO DO WAS CLOSE MY EYES & GO AS FAST AS i COULD THROUGH IT ( sorry about the caps BUT got carried away.). I had filed my tank full of gas & was sure it was going to blow when it got to hot for me & i had to fly over the Burn, ( is that what they call that ridge that the grader makes when they grade the road?) IT burnt the hair off my arms & eyebrows,Think goodness I did not have any hair on my head to burn. When we came back to Rye Patch we thought we had dyed & went to gold nugget Heaven. I think we would have been OK if we had stayed where we were. I left 5 gallon of gas & a full tank of propane there where the trailer set. But they say it is not the fire that kills you it is the smoke. I had a shovel.
  11. Happy Days Are Here Again, was just informed that my cash will be at there office at 3;00 pm Tuesday. It mite be later in the week when Steve comes in from NV. to drive me, HE is working a vent, cant Waite to see how it turned out. Who ever informed them that I was on this form, Thanks A bunch For I was about to Kiss that 10 oz good buy. Image is of happier times selling gold at Tyson Rock Show in Qsite AZ.
  12. I hear you John, When I herd some one wonting melting down one of my nugget I would get hilly insulted, When I was able to drive it was no problem to sell nuggets in Qsite AZ. every one new the value of a gold nugget.
  13. Gracie & I went to a treasure show in Longvuew TX, Where A man approached me wonting to buy a nugget& I could not remember how to figure the price I was selling them, MY mind went blank He had to figure the price, lost $90.00 on that deal. It was Gracie's birth day & she found a silver 4 real that was salvaged from a Spanish treasure ship that sank in 1715 by Captain Fismer. He was on Pawn Stars advise them on a ships bell that a lady brought in to sell them. asked him if he wonted to trade for a nugget, Sure I don't know any thing about gold nuggets, what ever you think is fair. Thought it was worth about $ 150.00 and gave him $ 150.00 worth of nuggets, he was happy with the deal & on the way home Gracie told me that we sure made a great deal, why? She informed me that the coin was priced at $ 500.00, O- S%%T I did not haft to worry long about cheating him for he in informed me by email that he was told that he paid over a thousand $ a gram for them, Bet, I broke him from trusting any ones judgment on a trade again.That deal cost me postage, insurance & a couple of nuggets for his trouble. Made a good Friend, but I don't think he will trust my JUDGMENT AGAIN. I am just to dam old, wake up in a different world every day.
  14. John , I had another 10 o/z I was going to give them when they brought me the payment at Burger King, (if they did)but I cant afford them, Gracie & I camped for years out in the deserts with pore Prospectors & rich ones & never had a worry, (well a few times when they got to close to a new patch) I don't think I could Ever send gold to some one with out payment, first, I don't have the desire to sliest trouble. I was amazed when I was trying to sell some gold at Qsite AZ; This guy that I did not know from Adam wonted to give me a check for 5 one oz vials of small Gold Bug gold. Told him that I could not take a check for I wasn't going home for 3 or 4 months & had no way to cash it. He said that would be fine to deposit the check when I got home & when it cleared send the gold, There is no way I could trust a stranger that much, I met him 2 yrs later at Qsite, I wish I could remember his name It is possible he visits this forum, Hi Guy
  15. It is very possible that I was expecting to much, I have never sold to a refiner before, & was told that he was paying $12,931.30 for 10 o/z of gold nuggets when he got the money. It was when he got the money that was the problem I have lived porley for 20 yrs on gold, BOUGHT trucks & trailers, motor homes 3 Mine labs & a number of VLFS, 2 6 months trips to W Australia & never had to trust some one to set the price on my gold & when they were going to pay me. when I gave the man the gold the money was in my hand. I was led to believe that the older you got the smarter you got, No Way, this old age takes some getting use to I am not trying to change any ones mind, You need to go with the one you trust. I am too dam old to sell on ebay Any more. I suppose I could cut the price on ebay for a quick sale.
  16. Allen, I think the first Lady was named Amie, the couple that met me at Bugger King, i don't remember, she signed the recipe but cant make it out, She was one of the owners. I think they are nab ors of mine, but don't know where they live. I phoned them to find out the hold up & he asked me if I wonted to peg the price, i told him no. the price was going up & up. . I called 3 or 4 days later & was informed the check was in the mail, He pegged it at $1,757 for pure gold o/z , he was paying 75% = OF 10 O/Z nuggets or 233.6 I was disappointed with the price & weight he was paying but had no recourse but to except as a way of life But when he told me the check was in the mail, I informed him that I stipulated cash & was told that I would receive same, he checked the invoice & told me he would pay when he got the money. he checked the invoice & told me he would pay when he got the money. I was so happy when they told me they would pick it up & I would not need to drive that 150 mile round trip & fight that traffic.
  17. grubstake, I have never sold to a refiner before, it has always been for cash. They made it so easy to hand over my gold to them for I am 84 & Gracie is 87, we don't drive so good any more,They said they lived here on the lake & would meet me at Bugger king ( T Bone was at McDonald's) & there would be no need for me to drive the 150 miles round trip to there place of business, Met the nice Lady & her husband & we enjoyed talking to them, They have a good web site telling how honest they were, what is to not believe?
  18. Yes, I called him, He informed me that the check was in the mail, I reminded him that it was a cash deal, he checked & came back that he did not have the money & would call me when he gets the money.
  19. Well I did it, gave my gold to ARA refiners for cash payment the 16 Aug. 2 to 3 day service for clean gold. Spot gold was NEAR $2000. HAPPY DAYS? not so. Aug 26, no payment. More later, Bad ticker, don't wont to loose my cool. chuck
  20. Thirty X 30 hunk of this dirt, produced over 300 nuggets, this place is the only dirt I ever grid.
  21. Man O Man, What this old fart would give for a place to speck like that, On my morning. 50' trip to the mail box here in TX, I give ever rock & pebble a good examination. What is that old saying the experience gold hunters always say? Gold is where you find it.There is no way in hell that there is any gold that I have a chance to find around here, BUT, Gold is where you find it.
