    Truck For sale. One owner, clean title in hand. Taken on occasional off road excursions so they have a few bumps and bruises here and there and are a bit muddy on the inside, but otherwise run good!

    US Army, Operation Desert Storm, 1987-1993. Resident De-Bunker. I'm blunt because I don't have time to indulge your fantasies. Treasure is found down here on Earth, not on Google Earth.

    That’s middle Tennessee in the flat land. Where my mom was at is in the hills of East Tennessee. Doesn’t really flood like that there. The fire has reached grandmas mine on Coffee Creek. I’m assuming the worst as it’s like a Christmas tree on the satellite hot spot map. The cabin has this big crack in the wall from when it was knocked on its side in the 1964 flood. Looks like I’ll be out my Vortxrex, my 4 and 6 subsurface dredges, my back pack dredge, my 4 surface dredge, my highbanker, my drywashers. I hate to think about the 10 stamp Hendy mill up on the hill.

    As they say, 2 weeks to slow the spread.

And let me be of first hand witness, things can get a bit concerning when you find yourself with an escape route covered with flames roaring over the road.
    Thanks for that , I was unaware . Never the less , we went into one of our claims to gather up things from our sluicing operation . It is in the N.F. closure ( monumnent fire, missed our claim by about 1/8 mile. Big new dozer line there on a claim now also . ) We drove through and passed a fire rig right at the creek. They all smiled and waved .
    Got all of our stuff out and back to home . Trying to prep for deer season now.

    Good job of looking after yourself and your property in true American tradition. Hope you bag a nice buck!
