    I found a nugget =)

    I haven't been around in a while. My apologies. I found this a couple months ago drywashing in southern california. I made my way back here and realized...oh! I forgot I had something exciting to share. This is my 1.4 gram "Teddybear" nugget from Holcomb Valley. Found with my home made drywasher. I also found some fines on this trip, but this has been the highlight of my summer =) Pic 3 shows where I came up with teddybear lol.

    I love it when a plan comes together! Best part of the deal is it was found on DIY stuff! Nice! Tnx. TTC
    I went to the grocery store. There was a sign on the door. No food or drinks inside...... so I went home.
