Well, the first present is under the tree! I have been looking for a smaller sluice that I can do some quick prospecting and sampling. I bought (with the Mrs. permission) an Angus MacKirk Adventurer sluice. As it is too cold here in NW PA, I will not be able to use it any time soon unless I get to travel to southern climate to test it out. I can't wait to get out there and do some sampling with it. All you who have opportunity to go, pan some for me. Much success to you all.
