East Coast Dredger Heads West - Part II
February 2009 by David ShackletonI wandered back across the river, wading through the rapids and slipping at least three more times. I couldn’t believe how slick these rocks were! Once on the other side, I sat down for a few moments to review my plan of attack and lick my wounds.

I saw gold this summer. The kind of gold that I haven’t seen since ‘81. The kind of gold that rattles in the pan. The kind of gold that would start a stampede—even in 1898.
Because waiting for spring seemed to be taking forever, my 15-year-old granddaughter Grace and I decided to pan for gold sooner. The thought was…even if we did not find any gold, we would set a new record for absurdity—gold panning in the coldest weather!
