    Been awhile since I had a connection. We just got into Lake Havasu, Az tonight. Had a great trip on the coast in Carpinteria and at Emma Woods state beach, then we met some friends in Death Valley and were there a week. And now I do have some great camera footage to edit when I get home for Thanksgiving. I really do love the traveling lifestyle

    Those little Casitas look great. A couple people in my neighbor hood have them, and it's what prompted me to get out TT (although it's not a Casita). I passed by the manufacturer in Texas last month, and I wondered how much of a discount I get if I bought one direct, LOL

    Safe travels, I look forward to reading more of your adventure!

    Instead of being in Az, Karen's mom bought a house in Florence, Oregon, so we moved her up and stayed a few weeks ourselves in our trailer. Johnedoe just happens to live in the area and he took me out beach mining here for my first time ever with an actual beach box. He has the Plath set up that was talked about 10+ years ago and it was impressive. Back in the day Dave Plath got himself banned from the 49erMike site because he was worried about people taking his ideas, so we just banned him and erased everything that was ever written about his clean gold sluice that he was selling. So... I never gave him another thought until I saw his sluice for the first time last week. Its basically just a sheet of magnetic sign material glued on to some thin aluminum and he was crying about copyright issues... Lol. Now after seeing it work in person, I can see why he was worried... It would be way to simple even for a child to copy. I really liked the way that it used the strips of magnet to form fine gold, low flow riffles for the beach gold and it would make a good addition to anyones arsenol that actually beach mines all of the time. I have used larger magnets myself in my undercurrent boxes for years but they are designed for a lot more water flow then this little beach sluice.
    Anyway johnedoe and I had a great time and we found gold right on the beach. We had a lot of fun. Now for the next couple of days, Karen and I are staying in Brookings at the Harris State Beach campground in space A25 if anyone wants to get together. We plan on taking some drives because its going to be raining the next few days, SO we will be exploring all of the little coves and beaches that we can find

    Here's some pics of the Plath Clean Gold sluice in action at johnedoe's house when we were doing our clean up. I didn't shoot a video at the ocean because the wind was really high and you know how that sounds... Lol

    Anyone wanting to stop in can either come by, or call us at 209_518_2650
    I'm on the tablet and not sure why the pics are upside down, I've tried turning and straightening here and wil fix later at home. When you zoom them in, they straighten back out and it gives you a great view on how the magnetic material lines up across the sluice
    The top sluice is his prospector model and it has the black magnetic material in it, then the bottom sluice is his larger production model and has the blue magnetic material. You can see how the magnetite fastens itself to the plate to form the micro riffles that work great for the fine beach gold. Zoom in on the black box for the full effect with the rifles full of black sand, you can see how the riffles create themselves on the magnetic sheet. We scraped the blue box's matterial down just before the pic and it gives a better view of how it all works. The riffles are simply created by the magnetite.

    Brookings? Never heard of it.......





    Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.


    A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

    A student said to his master, "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?"
    The master replied, "It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than to be a gardener in a war."

    Hey Reed,

    It's not your tablet, they are always rotated like that on my PC and always have been since I have been on treasurenet - it's kind of odd. Clicking on the image always fixes it like you said.

    Man, we've been from coast to coast this year, retired and traveling
    We pulled into the LDMA camp in Stanton, Az this afternoon and we are setting up for a week or more of fun and Gold Mining finally!!! I've been doing some detecting, sluicing and panning, but nothing serious. We did hit North Carolina this year and visited my old friend and claim partner Milty. It's been a great year and I thought that I should post being that we will be here for at least a week. If you guys have any suggestions or ideas, give me a shout

    Had a lot of fun, filled a ton of buckets, and made a ton of new friends
    I do love gold mining! Especially in States that are pro-mining!
