    Hey guys!  

    My granddad used to prospect in AZ and guided us to GPAA to get started.  We just signed up today and plan to go out to the claim in SLO this weekend.  

    I'd love any guidance as far as what to bring (we have pans, we expect we need to bring water but don't know how much, we're going to get a shovel and pick ax....), what to look for when we get there, how to decide where to dig.  Anyone been to this claim in particular???

    We've been watching videos and are reading a book but I know it will be totally different to be out there. 

    THANKS!

    Always best to meet up with other chapter members, there is a learning curve and the importance of in person working can not be underestimated. Also if you do not have a GPS they are very valuable, a smart phone can work as one off satellites, for androids there are free apps available at the app store. Make sure it is one that works off satellites as most claims do not have even one cell site to connect to. Does use up battery power but if you have an old smart phone it should hook up to WiFi even if turned off. Down load and use it independently of your regular cell. Bring auto charger if you have one and take time to get familiar with the functions also.   
    If you notice an error in the Online Mining Guide or with claim information please add in the updated information into the online mining guide to inform other members. Thank You Walter H. Eason
