Gold Prospecting for Better or Worse: Stupid Is As Stupid Does
January 2019 by Martin H. Milas
The temptation to enter the dark interiors beckoned to me before the day was finished but I resisted.
…being sneaky, I filled in the hole, and buried therein some trash items that I had previously found, just to discourage any other detectorist that might come along.
What are they? They are too hard to be lead, and are not tarnished like silver should be.
…I was looking down on what was a frightening 500-foot sheer drop-off. We were precariously close to the edge as the shoulder was practically non-existent.
As I laid in my Jeep and tried to get some rest, I began to realize how tired I was. I felt like a little kid who walked around Disneyland for 12 hours with his parents.
At first we decided to see what the flat by our camp would produce where the old-timers had worked it with their Pelton wheel and dragline buckets.
…while we were packing up, my wife called for me to help her with something, so I set the pan containing the gold down, off to the side of the parking area.
My right rib cage took the brunt of the blow from the fall, which left me feeling partially paralyzed and in immense pain.
