    The Terry C. Rich Hill Arizona invite!

    Well Terry was nice enough to invite me down and i gladly accepted.
    oh and srry its takin so long to post this but we moved just before i went out there and are still having problems with internet.
    anywho, my 4x4 was not going to be ready in time, and i was not about to wait another day to start the trip.
    so i ended up driving our chevy cavalier. MASSIVE MISTAKE. LOL.
    that damn seat bout killed me. took two days to get to Terrys camper from indianapolis. i get there and Terry and his brother Tim
    have the camper all ready for me. even had 2 great prospecting books set out for me and maps of all the claims at Rich Hill.
    Terry couldnt be there much cuz he was traveling but his brother was right there takin me down the mountain the back way in his 4x4
    and showing me the lay of the land. they are both very nice guys and wonderful to talk to. they had all kinds of prospecting equipment to use.
    i took the v3i with 3 coils but didnt find a nugget. found many .22 cal bullet fragments in hot ground. spent a lot of time taking
    samples at Rich Hill and all over the desert. in the worse soil i could find, i buried a 2.5 gram fishing weight at about 7 inches deep.
    the probe read about 71% mineralized and i got very diggable signal in all metal. i was using the 10dd goin for the lunkers lol!
    but like i said, there were so many other things i needed to do while there, i couldnt focus on just one thing. Tim gave me the scoop on
    how to find the status of claimable land by using the BLM site. and also answered any question i had about ANYTHING, even how to
    stake my own claim, which i will be doing shortly when i go back.
    im gonna try to add this video Tim took of the sluice of theirs that we used, and a couple pics of the gold we got out of there secret
    hole in the desert that they actually took me straight too and said i could keep what i find!
    WTF !!! ami being punked, like on tv, am i dreamin? Folks, you just dont meet people like this anymore. ive made 2 great friends
    out there. cannot wait to go bak, and the first decent nugget i find, im giving to them, not just for their generosity but for giving me
    the chance of a lifetime, and a whole gold pa%n full of stories to tell my kids, and someday my grandchildren.

    supafly,
    That's a great post, thank you. Sounds to me like you had a great adventure meeting T&T, being gifted with guidance/advice/mentoring/kindness/and just having received the best treatment a person could get and that is as good as it comes and the way life should be! Great video of the wash system and at the end of the whole trip you ended up with gold, what more could a person ask for. Yes, yes I know more gold but then once a person has caught the fever that is the typical reaction and I know it only too well. Now of course You had a choice to make, should I go there, they are strangers, etc and look what happened, good on ya. Congratulations to all three of you for a wonderful share for all of us.........63bkpkr

    Thanks for the good word, and for the post, Supafly. I enjoyed showing you Rich Hill, and telling you about the general history of the area. And I must say that Supafly is nothing less than a mountain goat. TimC

    I knew a man who rode his horse backwards, because seeing where he has been was much less scary than seeing where he was going.

    I know what you mean with that Chevy. Back in the late 80's my company downgraded all the salesman's car from a Lumina to a Cavalier. I felt like I was driving in a clown car with my knees in my chest and a ride from NY to Boston left me in pain for 1 1/2 days. You're right about the seats, it would be more comfortable sitting on a milk crate with a 2x4 back

    I'm glad the rest of your trip was a bit more enjoyable and fruitful

    Good gold, Jerry! Looks to be about 2 dwt. A pennyweight is 1/20th of an ounce so you have 1/10th of an ounce or..... about $171 in gold from 1/4 cubic yard.... or dirt that is producing $681 dollars per cubic yard! Great work, my friend. Keep at it! TTC

    Being the "old man" that I am, I can always use some young muscle! Ha! But the next time you're up here, we'll work on getting you a claim set up! Then you can bring the guys from Indiana to your own GOLD MINE! Glad to help out. Take care, my friend. Terry

    supafly, thanks a lot for sharing the video! Looks like a grand time was had by all!
    Ya'll are in a totally different gold hunting mode, than those of us on the east coast beaches. I always wanted to do like ya'll are doing! It's hard to extract gold from coral rock! LOL!
    (I always figured I could lay some sheep pelts in a stream and make my own 'golden fleece'! LOL!)

    I really appreciate the info Terry gives us on-line, too! Thank you too Tim. Ya'll all keep up the good works!
    Thanks again for sharing!

    Jerry, got your voicemails. Sorry, the cell doesn't work well on the side of this mountain in CA. You can also try 209-728-3316, the local phone here. Log it for future reference. Tnx. TTC
