I have read the forums on and off for a few years and finally joined. I am retired military and have decided to enjoy life and spend the summer in Ak. I have done a little gold prospecting in the North East and some in GA but looking to get some real experiences prospecting this summer. I will be near Kenai for a few months starting mid may and who knows after that. I am fortunate to be in a position where I can afford to travel long term and Im eager to explore, learn and see all that this great country has to offer. As the weather changes I will head south but I have no set plans yet. Im looking forward to learning more about gold prospecting but Ilove to learn about everything that I can. If anyone in alaska or other places would like to give me some pointers it would be greatly appriciated. I like gold, who doesn't but interested in all sorts of activities.
