    Trifecta gold !! 10k 14k 18k !!

    Well when the price of gold is skyrocketing......well even a die hard spanish treasure hunter will take a break from that and go and hit some swim holes for the heavy metals !! Woooo hooo !! I forgot how fun it was to go for the gold drops !! 32 grams... not a bad days work....or hookie from work lol. Cost me a little driving gas and 4 hard boiled eggs and 2 peach teas !! Gotta love the low overhead. Had a wierd thing happen on the way in....as I started to paddle....it felt like i was going along pretty good !! The first boat i passed says " what the hell man...you got a hidden motor in there". The next guy says "dude your almost on plane". I dont know how I was doing it but the combination of wind waves and current + a new paddle had me at aw inspiring speeds with very little effort....at least 5 or 6 kts. A record for me in a kyak it was a quick ride in.
    Got a 10k white and yellow gold band first fanning around in the sand. after an hour or so I got a heavy 18k white and yellow gold band !! I was happy with that but I had only been in the water for a couple hours so it was back in for my 3rd gold !! At this point I'm dragging 4 kids along behind.....all eager to dig and find treasure...they have seen the 2 gold rings on my finger and are just waiting for the next one !! Bottle cap...penny....bottle cap....now they all have masks and are watching and helping some, and there it is in the clean white sand as I fan GOLD TREASURE !! Lol...one of them looks at me with his little freckled face and says....you be making money.....lol !! I said yes I am and then passed it all around for them to see and feel !!

    Those are nice Bart

    Hard to believe people don't take off their jewelry before partying on the water. Their loss is your gain, ( Obviously ). Well done Bart.
