Happy Birthday to ME


Reno Chris

Recommended Posts

Unlike most birthdays, I am not out of town prospecting this weekend. I'm at home but having a fine day for an ancient 51 year old guy.

Hope you folks are all having a Grrrrreat day and are out there finding some gold. I'll be out there again in a couple weeks, just got finished with marrying off my son, and I'm catching up on projects that need to be done at home. I'd normally be dredging the next month or so, but the environutz and the politburo of the Peoples Socialist Republic of Kalifornia sayz "NO" to that, so I'll be dry washing and detecting in the heat.

You guys all take care of yourselves and stay healthy, I have a lot of fun visiting with you on the forums.

See ya around the goldfields........... :innocent0009:

Hi Chris,

Well, Happy Birthday to you! You have put a whole lot of learning into those years, and I am always

amazed how you did it all!

Now that you have topped out at 51, you still have a lot of great years ahead of you, and I know you

will put it all to good use.

Hope your day was a great one, hope to see you before too long.

I may be heading to Reno/CC area before too long, I have a friend there, and

may spend a few days. Do you know of a good secure spot to park my

rv/cargo type trailer for a short time? Just to park, not necessarily to stay in.

Send me a PM if you wish!

Take care!

Gary/ LARGO

Happy B'day, Chris...51 is definitely just a teenybopper :whoopie: ... I vagly remember that far back...Guess that means I've had a lot of fun since then...or maybe just sun exposure :laught16: ... I just recently read your article on gold formation on your website....I pretty much knew it, but your explanation was sharp, clear and to the point, the best organized treatise on the subject I've ever read...I recommend everyone visit your website and particularly read that article...Cheers, Unc

A very happy birthday to you Chris and many more sir!

Rod & Russ are going at it about mining claim law on Rod's forum in the Nugget Saloon. I just got to ask you one thing and no it's not about their argument.

Wyldkatt mentioned a past Nevada claim case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1919 with a 1920 Decision against Ralph: Cole v. Ralph

Was this Ralph a relative of yours?

Thanks Chris.

Chris,

Hope that your day was a great one and that there are many more to follow. May the gold gods smile upon you and help you find a nice chevron at the Rye Patch outing......

:luck:

I have heard of this case, but he was not a relative so far as I know. Maybe he was some very distant relative (there are not that many Ralphs), but all the Ralphs on my side were farmers, not miners. The only gold miner in my family was Australian, on my mother's side, and was murdered there for gold in the Victoria's golden triangle in the early 1880s. His son became an orphan, and was adopted by an aunt who lived on the east coast of the US (which is how my mothers part of the family came to the US).

Hey thanks much for the birthday well wishes everyone!

Chris,

So it's 51 is it. I'm trying to think back that far, but things are pretty fuzzy. If my mind serves me right my partner and I were working the drift at the 125 foot level of our mine. So you have plenty left in ya. Good pictures and it was good talking with you. I'll see you at Rye Patch.

Hi Fred:

Just a short time to retirement. How are you enjoying yours?

The book is about 99% done. Its all written, photos and diagrams all laid out. I just need to finish up the first edit, then make copies which I am sending off to a few very experienced prospectors for comment. After I get their thoughts, I'll incorporate that and it will be off to the printer. I should have printed, finished copies in hand around November 1.

Chris
