Guest Max Borden

I have been fully involved in my wifes care for a few years and my own health problems and have lost contact with all my friends except Steve Eshbaugh. I figured I had better get on here and see who is left , looks like this may get a lot of us old folks. Any one that remembers me please contact me if you wish , could not remember my old user name but found my old gold wheel and pans in my stowage yesterday and believe it or not I still have some concentrates from my Idaho days when I got over 16 ounces in the summer of 2010. Some of my 30 year collection of rocks,minerals and crystals survived my 2013 house fire just smoked up , lost some gold and learned the lesson to NEVER store gold in plastic or glass , only in tight strong metal containers. Thanks Bill for all your prior help. Max Borden

Welcome home Max.

Thanks Frank, I  have been lost! Do you still have those camo army pants that I gave you at gold basin ? Man it was cold and that cougar scared  hell out of me !

We have been back several times but never saw him again. Hope you are doing well!

Max! Welcome back. You took me out waaaaaaaaaaaaay back when I was a newbie. Always appreciated that. I did some detecting and you were getting cons to bring home to pan out. Good times :)

Thanks grubstake, I know how you feel I have been using a walker since I had a hip replaced. Hang in there , the alternative is not too good either.

Wife use's a walker, I use a cane sometimes, but my problem is my heart, had a really bad heart attack back in OCT. thats number 14 for me in 12 years. have 11 stents, and have had a 5X'S bypass. Still on the top side of the grass, you can't kill someone that been through hell. Grubstake

 

 

Well I guess you can kill me! you just can't eat me! That against the law!
