Hi Robert! You might consider joining a local chapter. As a matter of fact, I am the Vice President of the Delta Gold Diggers, Stockton Chapter of the GPAA. We just had our monthly meeting last night but our next meeting is on June 27th at 7:00 pm at the Eagles Lodge in Stockton on Bourbon St. Just so happens, I am also the Outings Coordinator and we will be having an outing on June 30th to one of the DGD claims. If you are handy with a smart phone, download the Meetup app or go to Meetup.com, register, and search for Delta Gold Diggers. If you don't want to mess with that, we are meeting in the main parking lot at Columbia State Park at 8:00 am and leaving for the claim at 8:15. Come on out and join us. I guarantee color.
Edit: Tim, come on out and join us as well.
