Did everybody’s team win the Super Bowl? No? Bummer! Missed my deadline on the Gazette yesterday as things piled up on me. You know how it is. When it rains it pours. You go for weeks without much going on and then everything hits at once and everything has to be done at the same time. This will be short this morning as we are off in a little while to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science with GPOC. The gold room is our objective and hopefully the schist piece with gold in it is in the show case that came out of the Terryall area.
Also, our friend who had hip surgery needs us to lend a hand this weekend as he is released from the hospital and goes home. They live way out of town have stairs everywhere, so we will be going along for the weekend to make sure they can get around everywhere and Larry is there to help if there are problems or things need to be modified.
BLM information for this season continues to come out and I will be posting more on what information I have next week after I am sure our friends don’t need a hand with things after this weekend. That first three days are the worst, but after that things seem to settle down.
Everyone is getting antsy to get out in the water. My monster sluice is itching to get wet, too, and everything is ready but the weather. Come on sun! All for now. Gotta run. Here are a few links to keep you busy while I’m away. In case you missed this amazing video showing an elk herd crossing a road near Estes Park you should give it a look. Over 4 minutes and they kept on coming. Several were wearing radio collars, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SxxOTkfKPk These vids are of amazing lightening strikes in extremely slow motion. http://www.wired.com/thisdayintech/2010/02/gallery-lightning . I did not find any that were interesting on gold prospecting this week, but these are definitely worth a look see. Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
Until next week…….
