Re: We are still a club & still in business !!

One old guy who's sick of hearing "It" sitting right over here. Manufactured fear and such was 'old' long ago and it just seems to get worse by the minute. Common sense - right out the door while constitutional freedoms (which we use while mining) are being taken from us "for your own safety". Finel...

Re: This Coming Season

And here, all along, I thought you were just in your recliner, sawing logs. It makes me feel better that, from time to time, I suffer an uncommanded logout from the forum - with the same "Lost in Space" results.

Re: This Coming Season

Jim,

I saw a 'church sign' on the way to the pharmacy yesterday that was a great reminder of an old, wise saying. It even works here.

Re: Suction Dredging Unlikely this Season in California or Oregon

Well now!

I guess Dave chose to remove the newsletter for some (good) reason and the error just showed up that way.
