Naked Gun And Two-Gun Pete
August 2023 by Bob Schall
Well, the last time I headed out, I decided to go alone. Big mistake. Since I first started my prospecting adventures, I have had both knees and one hip replaced…
He could tell that the top part just slid partway down over the bottom half. So, he tried to twist it apart with his hands. No go!
On about the fifth time across one of these slopes, and down near the little wash...bam! I found a nice chunk of rock, laced through with gold. Wow! How had I missed this?
Sure enough, after hiking a couple miles uphill and hacking through some brush, we found the place just as he had described it.
…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.
The catch being was that it was about 60 miles from Anchorage near Hope, and a good four or five-mile hike uphill to the claims.
