That is flat out AMAZING! Holy Smokes! And for that to be "only your 5 gold coin" GEEZ!

Old Plugmaster Ford must be priming with his buddies to come to your family's property (don't think he is on this forum). Seriously, FANTASTIC!

Good grief, a double eagle! And on family land too! I couldn't even imagine how that felt, but I hope to get something like it someday! Incredible job!
