Hey Sky when your down and out...hitting rock bottom...things can only go up from

there...we all go through hard times and depression..just part of life...my answer

to it is I get the detector out..throw some lunch in the PU...a LOT OF WATER..and

go lose all my troubles while I'm beeping for the gold...when I'm beeping I never

think about anything else(except safety)and that's part of beeping...if I remember

Hawthorne has a lot of desert and mountains where one can get really lost...so plan

well and if possible find a partner to tag along with you...at least you'll have

somebody to talk too...good luck buddy and keep us posted on what you find or

don't find....

Hang in there Skybone! Meanwhile check the areas between Hawthorne and the CA line and to the N, there is gold there and some of it is claims, worthwhile to check with the county for names and contact some claim owners for permission, I do it all the time, just be careful of the indian rez.

Well I'll can feel what your going though, Although I never drank or had a ticket of any kind in my life, I did lose my CDL over a heart attack, Longhaul is not just a job! Its a life style! 20+ years of it. devistating to say the least. Anyway I wish you Luck in you gold finding its now become a job. If you get a 1/4 oz a day, you can make it. anything less and I don't know. depends on your bills, and lots of other stuff. Like your gas, food and if you have vehicle trouble. But if you average 1/4 oz. a day for thirty days, it should tell you how you are going to be. Good luck. Grubstake

Sky,

As someone once said "the measure of a great man is not how he survives the good times, but how he climbs back up from the bad ones."

Learn from your mistakes and move on.

Good luck and hoping the best for you.

Paul

Sklybones, not trying to be a preacher, but sometimes you have to ask your self, was the drinking worth it? I have several alcholics in my family and I've got druggies too, I chose not to be one, I have never drank or done drugs, but my uncles aunts, kids, and nephews and some in-laws have and it always ends one way, with someones death, either they end up behind the wheel and kill or injure someone or they get killed, I'm talking from my family. Oh yeh it was just one drink! One too many. so if your going to drink, you need to be some place your not going to drive. My personal feelings is there not tough enogh on some of these people, my late younger brother was one, I can't tell you how many DUI's he had, lots. he was band from ever getting his lic. at all. But kept on driving anyway, until he killed someone, his on son, then the drinking just got worse. But he kept on driving until he died late last year. of liver failure. sorry if I'm preaching. I guess I am. Grubstake

I have been more of a lerker here for couple years, this may be first post. I have been driving taxi cab for the last year haveing lost my job do to layoff, I see it far too often people drinking to excess. Having lost their drivers license. It can be costly as you found out, you'll get through it. But as you know your job search will be in another direction. Go find some gold! Ron

:arrowheadsmiley: Ain't a thang wrong with drinking--it's EXCESSIVE drinking that kills. Dad died in the nuthouse with a dead liver thanx to 35 years as a alkie. Ugly 2 see and LL to live with. But if you have a addictive personality you can get hooked on many items--sex--gambling--starbucks--drugs---porn---the list is endless. Grubstake--them dogs pulling your CDL is akin to Arnold pulling our dredge permits--now what the LL is a ol'miner supposed to do--or driver-NOBODY GIVES A :nono: ANYMORE WHAT HAPPENS--JUST GETTN' THERE OWN WAY--John :WOW:

John, it wasn't the state that took my CDL, it was fedral DOT.Once you have a heart attack, and get cleared to drive its ok, but when you have two, and have to take the meds, you can't drive. you can drive your car or truck, but you no longer can drive commercial , long haul. Grubstake
