NEW! Prospecting Community Network! We have great group started with several already blogging and getting involved. You will be able to view the main page when you pull the site up to decide if it is a place you would like to hang out at.

SOOOO nice to have sunshine again! While we will have rain this weekend, it at least will not be solid for most of us. Spring rains are welcome here and in the high country, as rain will bring snow down faster and start our gold season sooner.

You will find a new widget on the home page of with twitter updates. It has two purposes….1 to get a posting every day to the home page so it will update in the search engines, and 2 so you can follow. Also, you will find the Calendar of Events page is updated for the summer with dates I know. I’m sure I missed a bit, but I’ll get back to it this next week as I try to get everything finalized and put to rest for the summer. Links to the panning tips page still need work.

A couple of interesting articles came up this past week I thought you might like to see. The first is about wind power and the National Parks Service’s concerns over the amount of water and land needed to support the use of solar panels in the southwest where most of the sunny days are located. The other was a report about a ship from South America with gold aboard that was sunk last January.

Summer is approaching, and we will be off prospecting. May 1st will be the last regular Gazette until Fall. I have decided that regular blogs every few days will be better to do than having the spectre of a deadline over me every Friday. I will also continue to twitter, but probably not as much. Can’t twitter and blog when you are finding gold! LOL! Larry’s last work day will be next Thursday. After that we have several weekend things planned as well as Let’s Go Gold Panning Days. Then we will be setting up summer camp around the 15th of May, and settled in by the end of May. Lots of trips are being planned with various people, so we plan to have a busy summer finding gold. Hope you will be finding the yellow stuff, too. Remember to be respectful of private property and try not to p**s anybody off. There are reports that California prospectors are coming up against robbers, so you might want to try to keep to groups.

Looking forward to reporting to you of our adventures and posting pictures of gold for you to drool over.
