Good to see Jim up and around. He is an icon of the hobby! His writings have been very important to my success as a miner/detectorist!

No finer gentleman than  Jim.....When  he is around you do not talk but listen to what he has to say.  You will learn much.    Howdy Jim hope all is ok.  Jerry

To All

It had been a long time that Jim and I talked by email but here today he’s wanting to know how I’m doing. I should have been the one checking on him being he’s got about eleven years on me.

I guess the odd thing is if one would want to say is Jim and I have never meet. Jim is got to be the greatest guy that I have ever known but like said never meet.

I think it all started when I sent Jim something that I can’t remember anymore. I wasn’t wanting anything in return but here came a flood of material for me to read.

I just know if we had more in this world like Jim Straight it would be a better place to live.

Jim I Thank You for you just being you!

Every time I was with Jim I only had one thing to do Sit down, Shut up and listen.......No one finer to learn  from.  A  real gentleman who loves to pass on what  he has learned in life.  It is amazing what he has published on  mining.  I have always walked away with more knowledge than I came with.  Jerry

A  funny about Jim.   He took a WW2 era mine sweep metal detector to a coin contest at Rancho Jurupa... The detector had no battery and  was not working.  He went into the field and picked up visible coins and pretended to be detecting.   Several people complained his big detector was interfering with theirs even though it was not working and they never bothered to ask.  Here's to you Jim.
