Howdy Y'all

Recommended Posts

Y'all can blame Mr. Southern and his YouTube channel for my presence.

I've had the fever for more than 20 years, in one form or another. It started with golden trout in Wyoming...and still persists.

Prospecting and rockhounding have taken hold of most of my thoughts, vacation, and research time, as of late.

Usually, gemstones and pretty rocks are my fancy.

Since the day I learned how to pan with some store-bought paydirt, gold has become a gnawing addiction.

Earlier this year, I caught my first wild gold. 7 microdots panned out of pocket sand, while cleaning topaz crystals.

Knowing that gold is kinda rare in Utah, I promptly released them all back into the desert, to fight another day.

I'll try for em again in a few years with the detector, once they've put some weight on.
