3 days at the Q with John and Jane

Recommended Posts

Just got in from 3 days at Quartzsite looking for gold and having a really good time with all the folks down there. It was John Boyle's 85th birthday! :)

Awsome sunsets, great weather, really nice cake that Patrick made for the occasion, and there was some pretty good gold found.

The buffet that Jane put on Sat. night was unreal. LOTS of good food!

Shep found a specie that is a screamer in some ones pile of rocks they were throwing out of a wash DOH!!!

Scott found three really nice pieces...guessing 3-5 grams. Norm got one. Dad found a nice quartz crystal.

Mike gave me my 1 Oz club certificate :yesss:

Others got some gold but I didn't get pics of them. Its still out there :)
Really great time.

Tom H.

Yeah, one really has to keep one's eyes open at night around campsite anymore. Guess I'll have to get night vision goggles for the boy. He just can't seem to stay out of trouble.

I liked that pic too! It was funny because when they were trying to take the pic the wind kept blowing the back side of the beard around and Tom had to keep turning his head so the beard would hang right.

It's really not an official outing as such. Jane and John Boyle goes down there for a few weeks and on John's birthday and holds a get together/party. John beeped the area for years and they both love the guys and gals that they have made friends with there. Johnny Eagle was a Salmon boat captain for years in Alaska and some of his kids live there yet. This is the first year that all the children made it to the gathering and mom and dad were elated. Some of them do a subsistence living up in Alaska and are very interesting to converse with. John says when he gets old he is going to put that poster up in front of him and throw darts at it and think about those who signed it. It's not a club outing but anyone can come and join camp with friends and meet Johnny Eagle, he'd love it. He's that kind of a guy.
