    DD great tag along and only thing missing is the DUST MASK so you can keep on a mining man. Desert/Valley fever has killed off a huge segment of my ol'OC Clubs members out there ,err on the side a caution as safety neglected comes at a horrendous price. Go to Center For Disease control website and it's gettn' folks left and right still-John

    Wishin' I had worn a mask John..been hacking (more) since I got back.
    I did ask around the claim area, and the general consensus was that
    Valley Fever was not found in this area. We also had a good breeze
    blowing every day, so the majority of the dust all went the other way.

    Still, gonna do some research on it and take it along when I next
    see my doc. My lungs are pretty shot anyway after 35 years of
    smoking, and I've had pneumonia several times in the past few
    years.

    I grew up running around those desert areas, so I should already
    have developed an immunity. Still, if I get the chance to go again,
    a good mask will be covering my nose/mouth anytime I'm around a
    running drywasher.

    Mike, your doctor's office will give you one for free. Especially someone with your history should be careful...even just the dust could trigger pneumonia for you. Valley Fever is fungus based so you can't develop an immunity to it...and that's why it is so hard to treat, leading commonly to death.

    The other smart way to get masks is your local drug store or online. I bought a couple dozen "N95" masks to protect my family in case of a flu epidemic (and I am not even a prepper!) so I use one of those when doing something that involves dirty air or hazards. I suggest you do the same my friend!

    I had never heard of this. Thanks again for the continuing education.

    after this trip. Still miss the guy.
