    Re: How much Gold

    HI Stephen, a 1/2 ton of Gold naturally. Hasn't anyone ever heard of air lifts / shocks? I use them for an extra #1000 of suspension to keep from bottoming out while going into Tayopa.

    A 1/2 ton of gold weighs more than a 1/2 ton of feathers? Are you sure about that?....lol

    HaHa

    If you Fill a Half ton Truck Bed with Gold
    the Tires will go Flat.
    If you fill a Half ton Truck with Feathers
    It would feel Empty.

    But either way

    1000 Pounds is 1000 Pounds.

    Probably about a Ton.

    I Have seen People fill their
    truck beds so High they could get over a Ton
    of Coal in the beds of their 1/2 Tons.

    However it is Illegal in PA.
    & The Tires don't like it

    One thing to remember Though.
    a Ton of gold may just cover the Floor
    of a Half ton Truck.
    Not sure.

    Rule of thumb

    When your Tires start showing the Weight
    time to wait for the Next trip
    for more

    Re: How much Gold

    Good evening my friends' Regarding feathers & gold, Why?

    Gold is weighed in Troy . 1 ton of gold = 2722.2 lbs Troy

    Feathers are in Avd. 1 ton of feathers = 2240 lbs AVD (long ton)
    = 2000 " " (short ton)
    one pound troy = .882 Avd

    one pound of AVD = 1.213 Troy

    However if you specify weighing in the same type of weight, they would be the same.

    so you see it is a trick question, and also that I mistyped in my post.

    sigh- nope, I won't apologize.

    Re: How much Gold

    How much gold do you expect to find?
    Is your gold claim that productive?
    Are there any concerns that someone else will find out about your claim?
    Like the IRS?
    Did you think you can really find that much gold in one trip to your claim?
    Or was this just a pipe dream or a greedy dream of treasure hunting?

    Gold prospecting is hard work and people don't find humongous nuggets every time they go out.
    Keep dreaming and stay in touch with us, we like a good treasure story.

    One thousand pounds of gold at today's prices, about $13,440,000. Good luck in finding that much on your claim.

    Re: How much Gold

    What I would is sell off about 10-15 pounds of gold, and buy a slightly used garbage truck(like the kind that empty dumpsters),of course one would want that used garbage truck smell. Load your gold in the back, and transport it anywhere you want. I never seen a garbage truck pulled over by the Highway Patrol Then, after gold is moved, sell the slightly used truck.

    Re: How much Gold

    I have hauled drops (ends of bars that have been cut off on a saw) and weighed them before leaving the place. They were in 55 gallon blue plastic drums. The tops were cut out. There were two of them and they weighed 2,300 pounds total and i hauled them 50 miles with no problem in a 1998 Chevy 1/2 ton extended cab pickup with 220,000 miles on it. This was all nice roads but it handled fine but I kept it under 70. You need tires that will take it usually at least 6 ply. I am sure a Ford would do the same. The thing you would have to do is make sure they cannot slide in the bed, the first time I tried it they slid every time I went around a corner and I thought they were going to rip the bed off or turn me over..haha..it did squat the truck some but not much. i don't think it would work very well in rough areas. To get the gold to the truck you might use the 55 gallon blue plastic drums cut off and cut holes in the side for handles...before you do anything practice it with weight in it to make sure it works! Sand might be a good substitute to practice with.
    Yea, though I walk through the Valley of Death I will fear no evil for thou art with me.
