    should be fine. I was just worried you were running it with nothing under it.. lol!

    Gold Hog works well too. Not a fan of the ways to keep it in a box though.

    This is not related to hunting for gold, but I heard this today on the news and thought about the issue you had with rock safety.

    Apparently in Jay, Maine a crew was splitting a large rock, and the man got pinched inside the rock after it was split, then came back together on him. To save him, the Fire Department had to put air bags in the crack and re-wedge the rock apart.

    Again, not really related to mining for gold, but getting attacked by a rock is not something that occurs very often.
