Nice video and nice gold. I was up there that weekend as well, but never made it into town other than Friday evening on the way up. We dredged for a couple hours Saturday and Sunday, but a quite a way upstream from you. One chopper came through the canyon on Sunday, probably to pick up a mountain biker. Is that gold from one day of dredging?
Man I'd forgotten how bad the streets were in downieville--talk about a place to NEVER park your car on the street. If ya think that was vertical you should have seen Karl Von Muellers claim on Lavazolli creek and all slippery crumbly decomposing shale for that slip and slide feeling. The choppers that are black/dark green are the green harvest folks a lookn' for the herb.Thanx for the show and gold always rocks tons a au 2 u2 -John
