Re: New forum provider and formatting

Sorry John, no credit for past posts. I couldn't migrate the old members and posts into this new forum.

You could have registered under your username on the old board, then folks would know who you are. What was your old username on the old board?

Re: Gold Cube

There are no club restrictions about moving material far from the stream. If you are outside of the 300 ft. zone you will probably not get any grief from fish and game. They know the rules and will verify by GPS.

Re: How To Post A Picture

Good question Harry. I think I have set the file size so that it will allow most pictures. Although it may be a good idea to re-size if possible.

Re: The River

The river remains very low at this time, so it should be a good time to get at places that are normally underwater. Salm...

An Alaskan Adventure

This short story doesn't have much to do with gold mining except that we were going upriver to my claims to dredge. I had my five inch triple sluice stashed far upriver. One fine summer day I was going in to my claim to dredge and had a young Russian guy with me that wanted to see what it was all ab...
