If you're having a hard time hearing back from your partner, send me a pm and will email them for you.

Since I brought nothing from my house to send as a Christmas present, I ordered Kieth's presents from Amazon. He will get one on Friday and the other two haven't shipped yet. STRANGE, I ordered them all on the third of December.

For those that don't know, I am in Utah for 5 months visiting my children. My home is in Michigan and all locked up for the winter.


Merry Christmas to ALL.

Quaidmon missed the cutoff date and since I had some extra items I said that I would exchange gifts with him too. I received his package today and all I can say is he shouldn't have. It's way more that what he got from me. I'll have to make it up to him somehow.

He sent some of my favorite things. A flashlight and a knife. I collect both. some silver coins and a V nickel. Three rolls of wheat cents. A nice necklace and a rolled penny with a wolf on it. I love wolves too. He also sent some foreign coins and some arrowheads. I think he spent more on postage than what I sent him was worth. Thanks Wade.

Default Christmas Gift Exchange 2016

I got my care package this week from my exchange partner our Chrisggard.

Thank you very much!!

Folks, I've been spoiled!


When I first opened the USPS box, it looked like the 12 Days of Christmas had struck.

I got :

1 hand digging tool

2 bumper stickers

1 Tesoro finds pouch

Gold prospecting and panning as well as other treasure books to read

Whites and Fisher Labs Tee-shirts

A Garrett chip clip

A slabbed Mercury and silver Roosevelt dime

Chris also supplied some local history.
Now this gets interesting. He resides near where The Oak Ridge processing plant operated for the Manhattan Project.
He supplied me with some cool tourist attraction brochures. I'd like to see this this stuff!!
