    Happy New Year Mike!

    I'm job hunting so making plans for the future will be put aside for right now. IF I do not find a job then as soon as the snows in NorCal melt I plan on heading for the mountains. I hope you job possibilities have come true, keep that truck running!...............63bkpkr

    Sadly, my best friend and companion for over 16 years passed away Saturday February 9th. She was my mining partner, early warning system, and dish pre-washer. Pandora was friends with all that have been to my claim, including other dogs. The cedar log that crosses the creek will be named for her, Dora's Bridge, and the upcoming mining season will be dedicated to her.

    She will be dearly missed, but never forgotten.

    Rest in Peace my friend. It's not goodbye Dora, I'll see you soon

    I grew up with only one dog in my life. Flipper, a black and white purebred Cocker Spaniel. He actually adopted our family as he kept running away from his original owner and ending up at our house so the owner finally gave him to us but kept the purebred registration. I, as a young teenager, and the whole family was devastated when he had to be put down. Our remembrance was an almost full sized statue of a dog lying on the floor that we kept next to an easy chair. It looked just like him. Nice remembrance for Dora.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    All these storms hitting the northern Sierras are likely going to push my mining season start back to May. By then I'll be heavily into planting season as well. I'm SOOOOOO ready for spring.

    It will be interesting to see how summer starts (when it starts)! Spring, what a nice sound to that word and the images of pine and oak forests all over a mountain, the river running clear (and full?!), the birds singing, the squirrels jumping from limb to limb and the aroma of Fresh Air! Sigh...........63bkpkr

    Herb, you know you have an open invite to come up and play in meat creek. It's not "roughing it", though the hike to the old dig site from two years ago is a bit long. Harder coming out of course, but nothing like ARC. Plus my mining partner will likely be working close to camp which is even easier. Memorial weekend is the official kick off of our season, and there's still room for a couple of guests.

    Thank you Mike and my apologies for the late reply! I would love to do something, anything in the outdoors, even being out in the middle of a river shoveling into my GGt like mytimetoshine & asmbandits have been doing. That will not happen for now. I've two maybe job possibilities (you see the double negative) that I could hear about next week as quite simply, it would be best for me to be at a paying job. I am exercising so that as the Sierras open up I will be ready to go out somewhere IF I do not have a job. Till then I stay put and exercise and diet some. I will catch up with you later.........63bkpkr (AKA Herb)

    It's not been the best start to the year for me. Lost my best friend two months ago, and then my home of 18 years. I'll be moving this week into a fixer upper, that in a few years will be all mine. Winter still has a grip on the Sierras, which is delaying the start to my mining season. But with the upcoming move, I have to stay and fix the little things at the new house like the water. Then there is all the unpacking. Partner Rockguy bought himself a birthday present, a new metal detector. He's getting the hang of it and has been able to go play in the woods a few times. If all goes well for me this time, The house should be all fixed, and unpacked in time for the annual Memorial Weekend dig. Looks like we'll be heading up on the Thursday before and coming home on Tuesday after. With a good, long weekend, we should pull some decent color. If it's there to be found, we'll find it.
