I am sorry I have not posted in a long time but I have kept in touch with a few members. I want to let you know the conditions of Colorado are not good at all for even rafters, they are dying weekly, and the main melt hasn't even really begun yet.
I was at two claims that we would normally work this time of year just 4 weeks ago and the water was so high, fast, and full of debris it was impossible to even approach. Three weeks ago I was in Telluride and saw that the head of the San Miguel River was still frozen over, with massive amounts of snow yet to thaw.
I am heading down on Friday with the BLM over a dispute over a claim and a private property owner, I am having them join me to the debts of hell so they can see what we face, I hope I don't have to carry them out.
Talking to the Oklahoma State Director the other night I know my next time through I will find the 3rd flake of gold since they claim to have only found 2.
You all know how to reach me, if planning a trip to Colorado this year just hold up, its a rough year for us prospectors.
