    Got out last Sat & Sun:

    So I continue to work the same hole I've been for a bit. It's kind of a pinch point between two larger boulders. Here is what it looks like undisturbed and then as soon as I take a shovel full..it's 0 vizibility. So Saturday the water came up really fast and over an hour ahead of schedule. I had to scramble to save my gear. Forgot my shovel and had to wade into what was now chest deep water with a decent current. I was just able to make out the shovel looking through the water and was able to save it!. Got all my gear to higher ground and decided to pack up and leave. I dumped the excess water from my bucket of cons and left it right next to the water. Got momentarily distracted until the sound of a pail hitting the rocks caught my attention.....yup you guessed it my bucket of cons, while not dumping over had been snatched by the increasing eddy. No hesitation.. I charge into the water and just barely nab it a few ft from the main current!
    That would have sucked soooo bad! Lol.

    I was a little dissapointed with my take .35g Wanted to get more hours in.

    Sunday thankfully was un eventful but I did pack up my gear earlier then I needed to just in case. Again a bit dissapointed with .41g

    Not sure if I should keep on this spot or look for something better. I was hoping the gold would get better the deeper I went but then again I'm still a ways from the bottom. Doubtful I can go a whole lot deeper without a dredge anyway. There is of course more area to work behind this that probably has just as good gold I just thought this narrow spot would have some larger stuff. Opinions welcome

    New gear alert:

    Bought this miller Table set up. I still have the fever but not for panning out cons/black sands anymore. Just too tittious,time consuming and hard on the back.

    Was super excited when it arrived only to find out they shipped me a black one instead of green.. and the side was slightly bent. Don't think it's gonna effect performance though.

    Still trying to work out things with the seller. I'll probably get stuck with the black one as I doubt he is gonna ship me the right one unless I send this one back which will cost me shipping and being without it...

    Just ran my blacks sands from last week's after work trip. Got about 1 1/2 hrs of digging and panning. Just down to black sand and into the 2 gallon bucket.

    Did NOT find my green plastic scoop that I left on the previous trip.

    Almost had a bad fall on the way in and on the way out I slipped twice getting my boot wet.

    Asmbandits,

    Yea that's sound good. I'd love to meet some other miners in the area and my daughter would be super excited to meet a new friend. Let's make it happen.

    By dedicated you mean. Deliriously ILL with gold fever right? Lol

    Yes, im quite feverish myself! I spend pretty much any and all free time I can muster up looking for the yellow stuff..

    I will defiantly contact you as soon as I can about getting together, the next few weekends between work and other obligations are taken but not much going on the month of July.. I work ever third weekend (two off one on and so forth) but I always find time to get out and prospect.. Will keep in touch for sure!

    Last couple weeks I haven't got out as much as I would like. But got a few hours panning in last week l. I haven't been able to process it yet though because I sent the "laminate flow water table" back to exchange for the green one. The black one just wasn't cutting it for me i want green. So the guy was being difficult about the return but i should have it back by next week.

    Also had been eyeing a spot on the river and had the trail worked out through Google maps. Made the journey on a really hot day and when I got to where the trail should drop down from the ridge line...I couldn't find it. According to the map it should have been close by but i guess it was overgrown. So halfway back, I stopped at one of the few spots you can actually see over the Manzanita. I could see not only the section of river I wanted to get too, but a very wide trail leading up from it. But it goes behind the hill and you cant tell if it connects up top... ugh.

    Went back to my hole I've been working on Sunday. Been taking the bike with trailer which works well but realized I had an almost flat back tire when I got out there... then on the way down got chased by a pack of dogs... fun.

    Didn't feel too good that day,so my production was modest. I've gotten to where I cant go any deeper without a mask and it's zero vizibility so that spot is done. Never hit any concentration anyway. I'm just gonna work the material behind it as its probably just as good.

    I had planned to go out after work yesterday and today but... 105+ ? I think not..lol

    Good story and I'm glad you made it out of there ok, pack of dogs dang that's a new one lol. When you say bike do you mean bicycle our motorcycle? I ride a dual spot trials bike to most of my locations, it's especially useful for making it down to the claim, otherwise it's a mile walk on a very ruff steep trail. Actually am going to have to walk it this coming trip and am not looking forward to it at all with this heat.. I've been thinking about building a trailer to tow gear around.. most of my spots are really only accessible this way or you would be hiking a good 5+ miles but I do have a couple spots you can get to with a 4x4. I have a spot I did very well at that's easy to get to (no 4x4) that I've been dieing to get back to to do some crevesing and sniping.. Maybe when we meet up we can check it out, both me and Erik The prospector ended up with over 1.5 grams last time there and some small nuggets.

    Well I wouldn't call them wild dogs. They brang in sheep to graze for June and July but I didn't know they had heard dogs too. So it's mostly downhill. I'm flying down on my flat tire at 7 am lol and I notice the heard in the valley and I'm thinking to myself I wonder how they keep mountain lion from killing the sheep. Litterally 2 seconds later I hear barking and see the dogs sitting in the tall grass. They b line for me and I keep going. I noticed some little fence they put up last time I was there and had wondered what it was for because it is 3 ft high and looked like string. Well its a little electric wire for the sheep. 2 of the dogs just chased me from the other side of the fence but one jumped the electric wire and was on my ass. I finally just turned around and yelled get back and he stopped in his tracks.

    On my way back up when I was going really slow they came at me again but I yelled right away this time and they stopped.

    You know I see a lot of young kids ands women on this trail. Don't think they thought the safety issues out all the way on this one.

    Asmbandits. Just a regular mountain bike. Not much use for most areas but for this spot it's the way to go. Although I really would l9ve to get into some more remote country. Via 44 just adds to the fun.

    Finally received the green table today. Not very happy. It's painted green. The paint fills in the the small texture features of the table that grab the gold and the green color is lighter than it looks like in the picture. Not really the same green as a gold pan. Oh well. It works...

    Ran the black sands I had collected on 2 outings. Not a very big take but It's something and it adds up!
