FALL is sure here, but we are having temperatures in the 80’s this week here in Denver. It looks to be dry and warm for the next week to 10 days. Since it will be nice weather, we are escaping for a day up to B.V. to finish up closing up camp and do some prospecting…….and picture taking. The Apsens should be in prime color.

Gold is showing positive this week with it reaching above $900 several times. Stock market isn’t sure what it thinks and the bailout……well…...your guess is as good as anyone’s in Congress. Oh, here’s an oldy but goody, “If con is the opposite of pro, what does that make congress the opposite of?” LOL! Are you ready for the debates tonight?

Get ready for the Arkansas River to close to motorized equipment for the winter early this next week on Oct. 1st. Cache Creek will be open until November 30th. Yeah, I know. The summer is over and we don’t have many days left to find gold with. I have a bunch of magazines and new books to catch up on and read, but not quite yet.

Wow! It seems like there isn’t much to write about. Remember when we had water so high on the Arkansas River in July that the rafters couldn’t get a raft under the bridge below the numbers? With B.V. already having had 5 inches of snow in September, we may be in for another winter with lots of snow. Then again, Mother Nature may throw us a curve and make it a mild winter. I haven’t had time to look and the sunspot activity reports lately to know what to expect. I’m sure I will be wearing my sweats and gloves to pan out cons whatever it does.

I’ll have pictures for you of what Cache Creek looks like after the trees were removed next week. I’m also anxious to see how much more dirt has been moved since the first of the month. Sounds like there was another incident up there right after we left. This time we know who it is and this person has been a problem in the past. Shouting matches and bad manners simply have no place in public. If you don’t like the rules, go somewhere else! We’ve worked d***** hard to keep what we have open for the public. We’d all appreciate it if some people would not do whatever they can to ruin it for the rest of us.

That’s it for this week. Remember to check out the new GPOC website at Watch the blog this next week as I get more pictures and reports written about our September trip. Until then.
