    Re: In Memory of Pegleg

    Just a small FYI, for all who knew Don,
    Before his big move to Florida,
    He was a drylander, a regular prospector.
    That's when I met him.

    He always had a soft spot for us "tin pans"
    and we will always miss him.

    Don, when you get done digging that hole up there,
    Drop me a rope.

    Thanks Thom:
    For a little more info about Don.
    I didn't know him for to long, but he lived down the road from me. He was a cool guy, and great to talk with.

    Re: In Memory of Pegleg

    Dale,

    We were swapping pictures while he was convalescing,
    he was going to make a callender of treasure site pictures to help fund the get together of his.
    When he saw some of ours he decided to make two.
    one of dryland treasure signs and one of water or ocean photos.

    I will see if I can find the one that he liked the most of the ones I sent.
    I fear that If I don't post it no one will see it.
    It was one of those pictures that is hard to believe exists if you haven't seen it.

    Here it is as Don saw it.
    No other info except that the only alterations were when I made it small enough to post.

    Re: In Memory of Pegleg

    PegLeg was certainly one of a kind. He was a go getter and did more on his one good leg than most of us do with two! Nothing seemed to hold him back.

    xXx, a member of ARRG has started a show up in Myrtle Beach, SC. The guy who had talked about carrying PegLegs show on dropped the ball last year. A lot of shipwreck enthusiast will be attending but it is geared for all disciplines. Its going to be pretty big!
    Here is a link to the show. http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,166512.0.html

    I am sure PegLeg will be remembered for years to come!

    RIP buddy!

    Re: In Memory of Pegleg

    When people ask me about treasure hunting or metal detecting I always tell them to go on here and read some of Pegleg's post . I really don't care if they were real or not, but the real treasure of Pegleg was in his writings and how he stimulated the minds of the people he touched.
    Of all the things I've lost... I miss my mind the most!!!

    I am a little teary as I read through these posts.
    We certainly have lost some great folks the last couple years.

    Probably won't be around too much in the next few days because of it...
    I am getting a little older myself, and recovering from the memories takes a minute or two.

    Hey Don,
    Where's that rope!
