    It can't just be me. I am about to pull my dag gum hair out. I bought a dredge, and built a hand pump dredge, within the past month and bam...winter sets in.... uggg. I am running out of dirt. The creeks will all freeze over this week so I can't go get more. WWHHYY must we suffer like this.

    LMAO, no really, don't feel so bad.  I have a claim I filed this past summer, and is now under 2 feet of snow.  Can't even get into it to see what most of it looks like and pick areas to work next summer now that the understory is leaf-less.  Won't be able to get to it till probably mid May.  Really would like to see it with high water flow.

    I have one more 5 gal bucket to play with. I am holding out for a while... I found two specs in the first bucket that came from the middle of the creek. The next bucket was from near the bank. Not allowed to dig into the banks. I am hoping it holds a one once nugget.... Wish me luck!
