I'm in San Antonio Tx so it will be a 670 mile [one way] road trip, I'm retired, 72, and plan on taking my time. hoping I can talk one of the local RV places to sell me some "inexpensive" water, I have 12, 5 gal uline water containers and will be using 3 home depot 20 gallon cement mixer tubs as my recirculating system and am hoping the 60 gal of water will last a day before it becomes too thick. The GPS photo shows lots of exposed bedrock. Planning on metal detecting, crevice pick and vacuum part of the first day and then using the cube, Trommel and shovel. Will be my first time at the claim, will probably walk and look for an hour or so. In any case it will be an interesting outing and a learning experience.
You've got a good plan and the water should last at least as long as you want.
