That is a shock. He had those two long trips to Australia ...

I was just in Alaska and met a guy who worked at the GPAA up there Bob. I'll try to let him know.

That is a real shock to us. We haven't heard much from him recently and now we know. He was a free spirit and will be missed by all who knew him. RIP Bud.

He used to post a lot about the copper he would find here.

Darn shame.
