    ok Mike, I don't understand, apparently gold is a hobby only for you ?
    your sister lives near PJ and you have not visited ?

    look at the small cat that was shown to me last weekend

    Nice kitty...

    Nope, never been there..and my flying all over the globe days
    are over.

    Wife and I live on the Skagit River in one of the most beautiful parts of the US,
    so getting motivated to get on a jet and go somewhere hot and humid...well,
    it just ain't gonna happen.

    I prospect locally when I can..and can find fine gold right on my own beach. When
    I get the occasional itch, I'll head to one of the local creeks (there's hundreds of 'em
    around here) and bust open a few rocks. Can't do that shoveling all day anymore.

    don't mess with this stuff in Costa Rica (or Mexico, many other countries as well)
    look at ebay, they used to sell these pieces - no more

    Thanx bill,i don't know him that well.
    He was helpful when i built my 8 inch gravity dredge.
    He,s not no so active enymore in the forum and just wanted to say by to him.
    I remember he said his health was a bit compromised.
    But if you happen to hear him give him my best wishes-
