Whatz that in the road?

Hi'dy, Bin up round Fairplay awanderin' so I wandered in ta town to take a look at the goin's on. WHOOOO EEEEE! Did you ever see such a bunch o turists and greenhorns! An evrbody seems to bring their animals. Now, I went to see the burros race up to the top o the pass an back, but there was a passll a strange lookin beast with heads that looked like a goat an a huge body that looked big as a cow. I don know, but they must've not liked the area, or the air was too rarefied for 'em, cause one of 'em laid plum down in he middle o the street, an wouldn't budge. Dangedest thang I ever seen!!! Runned into my good friends Dale and Gale an asted them 'bou the roads that got shut off on privit property on ol' Mt Bross, an' they says that people just don't respect no body's private propety. They run around the gates and cut fences an dump oil in the middle o the road that runs down the mntn inter the lakes below an kill all the fish for years. Now, I don know where all these feriners is comin from, but their mommas sure din't learn them no manners! Them mines up there have tunnels running all over unner ground and the ground is unstbl sometimes, so the people who own them want people to stay off certain roads for their own safety. Ifn you r trespassin on somebody's property, I'd like your address to your home sos I kin visit you and run my burro all over yr bakyard. That's all I got ta say ta day.

Hooked on Gold Prospectors Blog: Gold Prospecting on Cache Creek

Hooked on Gold Prospectors Blog: Gold Prospecting on Cache Creek A COOL little website

Gold Prospecting on Cache Creek

Hi'dy, I got ast'd by the folks at hooked on gold to hep them with their prospectin' blog. Don't zactly know what that is, but it sounds like some girls' diary. Now, I'm not sure I wanna write in some diary, but they tell me all I hafta do is ramble on 'bout what I know and what I think, so here goes.

I'm known 'round here as the Gold Panner. I met up with Larry and Shirley back a few years, and since then we have become thick as thieves. Seems they is mostly in the same neck o' the woods as me, so we meet up offen. Good folks and honest to boot. Got 2 sons and a couple of grandkids with more in the oven.

Bin up 'round Cache Creek lately, an I bin seein' a few folks up there 'round the cemetury pokin'holes in the ground. Now, I heerd that the BLM tol everbody to stay up by those lectric poles by the road, an that the cemetury was a historic place to be preezrvd. I could name names, but don't wanna rock no boats. Meybe I'll git me one o' those pitchur takin thangs an wander down there. Cors it's a BLM problem, but I al'ays thought prospectors was law abidin' an honest, not a bunch o scoundrels. That's all I got ta say taday.
