2017 Prospecting
« on: May 19, 2017, 06:03:02 PM »

And so the adventure begins all over again.

New claims with a ton of logging done recently. I just hope the don't reclaim the road once they pick up the rest of the logs.

Sure hope I don't get the chance to shake this fellas paw.

Sure wish that cabin was left on my claim for my use. Doing a bit of poking around to get familiar with roads and areas.

I left my ugly stick behind so my wife had to take some selfieless shots.

Enough panning, time to do a random dig.

Yes sir Jerry. Ugly equal selfie.  I was waiting for someone to reply about the ugly stick being a fishing rod brand.

Cabin is still there. Just took this picture a couple of days ago. Just wish it were on my claim so I could use it.

Looks like a great camp set up Cade. Keep your pictures coming...the more the merrier.

Dirthogg, hey thanks for the well wishes.  You do know that's my best side, right?

Jerry, those totes are the air bags of yesteryear.  They come off with the rack when I'm doing any serious exploring.  Between tight trails, water control ditches and steep approaches that rack has no place with me at that time. Sure works good for two adults and 2 large dogs in the mean time though.


Unfortunately no pictures today....just didn't feel good about prospecting in an area that had some guys pounding back beer at 10 AM bear hunting. Don't need the headaches.

Great shots Hilo although I'd be buying new underwear if I was as close as you in the bottom pics. Glad to see you and Cade have been out already.

I went out the last weekend in April and was greeted by 2.5 ft of snow. Managed ot get my backhoe fired up and clean some ground and do some clearing. Heading up June 2 for a week and hope to build off last year. Sitting on a real nice bench so hope the testing pays off. I'll also be running a bigger trommell  ;) so I'm sure there will be some bugs to work out.

YEEEEHAAAWWWW I have been waiting 8 months to get back at it and we are sooooo close!!!

Slat's, thankfully the nice little brown black bear was from the comforts of the jeep at the time.  It must have been in the vicinity of our work area but never saw it there at all.

There's still plenty of snow up high and shady areas but this claim is low enough to be able to get to compared to our other ones.

The view from the upper floor. lol

New digs. Less over burden. I'll have to let you know about the finds in the layer.  Only about 8-12" down and an old stream from what I can guess. All those boulders were from the one layer.
