Yes. I live in KC metro area. Fortunately my job as a service tech provides me the opportunity to travel about a 50 mile radius. When I see an interesting spot, I return to it on the weekend to prospect. My finds are not what u would find in a gold bearing state, but color is color none the less. I have a friend that I shared the location with and it seems like he's there more than I am... No worries... I'm a gold hound and I want to find better locations anyway! Keep in touch. Maybe we can go out one of these weekends to do some prospecting.
