I'm a middle of the road kinda guy but am willin...

I went on a GPAA claim in San Bernardino Mts.(Yes I'm a member) I went there the week before but couldn't find the claim. This time I went straight to it.

I highly recommend it. The opportunity to post video files is going to be interesting. I look forward ...
