    Hello Greg,

    Jim Hatt centered his mountain activity on his cave for about 2-3 years and did a tremendous amount of excavating a hillside across the canyon to the east of his cave.
    This excavation was in a barren area and even though he worked at it for well over a year, it came to nothing.
    Jim always took his dog along with him and even though he used the cave which was an excellent shelter from the elements, he always slept in a tent he had set up inside the cave. I never could understand that.
    Jim did not range out far from his cave during the time he was there which was also something I found hard to understand.
    You could always tell exactly where Jim was or had been in the mountains. Jim was a smoker who smoked a certain brand of cigarettes and everywhere Jim went and stopped you would find his smoked cigarettes.
    The first time I was ever to the Mercury mine Jim was interested in I found by simply following his trail of cigarettes.

    Best,

    Matthew
