Default Wow! Lots Of Great Finds The Last Couple Of Days!




Too funny, started the day off meeting my buddy at a Honda Dealer dropping off his car for some work. On the way out, there was a Canada Goose on one of the cars. As it turns out, one of the tasks that the receptionist has to do is to try and scare that goose away. The funny thing is, it just fly's from one car to another. It must keep her quite busy.



Well, here's the place we hunted today. Kind of creepy though. One of my first finds was a geo-cash. I signed it and returned it to it's original place.

Here are the fruits of our labor today.




Here's the best of the best!




And yesterday, I headed down to the local river for some gold digging. The river kept rising, and pretty soon I lost my gravel bar under water I was chomping away on, so I finished early. Still, a nice batch of flour gold for such a short time.



And, as usual, I pulled out some nice finds out of the gravel.

A lot of small tales in a large adventure John. Of course for me the Gold is the topper. Big Congrats! Trapper

You started with a wild goose chase, and ended in success! Nice going! Seriously though, that Goose is providing some good Canadian humor!

Nice gold. How much weight? It looks pretty considerable in the pic.

Those flakes are soooooo small. Some, get so tiny, that they can stay as a suspension in the water.

No date at all, which is very unusual?
