    Hi Everyone
    The Friends of Placer Pete's outing is being held this week in the Bartow area from Tuesday Oct. 27th to Sunday Nov 1st. We have confirmed that Kevin Hoagland Executive Director of Development at GPAA / LDMA - Host, Gold Trails television series will be attending this outing on Wednesday and Thursday to provide metal detecting lessons and help you learn how to find gold in the desert! This outing is FREE and you are welcome to join us throughout the event. You can camp if you wish but please be advised this is a dry camp area. There are multiple hotels in the area with in 30 mins of the claim if this fits your plans. Come on out and have a great time finding gold! I truly hope we can see you out there.
    Placer Pete AKA Steve and Phil

    The Claim is in Southern California
    San Bernardino County
    Near Barstow

    This is a relatively easy claim to get to. It can be reached from either Barstow or from Hinkley Ca. Easiest route is from Interstate 15 to route 58 west. Head to Hinkley. Exit 58 at Hinkley road north until it becomes a dirt road. When you reach the yellow Road Not Maintained sign along with Limited use area sign bear right (Slight "Y" in the road). Road sign is marked as BM6285 (google earth marks the road as CoRd20771). Follow road till you reach the intersection BM6285 and Fossil Bed Road. Follow signs to CG7210. Take CG7210 to CG7206 (slight left) DO NOT MISS THIS TURN - DO NOT CONTINUE ON CG7210 which heads off to the east. Take CG7206 to the claim (about .6 miles). Claim is well marked with Corner markers and discovery point. Be careful on CG7206 there are a couple of rough spots in the road. High clearance vehicle recommended but 4x4 really not required.
