1st batch were in Ca.

2nd batch in Idaho.

If spent some time looking them up, I have the State, mining district & GPS position of all of them in my records

I have ones from Alaska, Washington, Nevada, Oregon , Ca, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Aizona, etc.

I have scoured a LOT of old isolated mining districts looking for paydirt..

When your doing for yourself, it's not work.

More like a paid vacation.

Because it has paid off for me.

Retired from working for the other guy @ 51 & that was a LONG TIME AGO.

wa-au-nut, Tim has just posted some more photos on his GTW site from his latest trip to Okanogan County gold country.

I know what you mean about going inside any of the old mines. Probably not a good idea and I do worry about Tim doing it as often as he does. I just love the history and mystique that surrounds the old mine sites. Lots of fun to visit and photograph. Glad you take your grandkids exploring.
