Hi all,

So I am also new to this. My wife grew up in California and always wanted to go digging. Gems and gold. So in October we went to Columbia for a week, of course we were there when the Feds shut down all their land. But We spent a good afternoon with a man named Cricket and then paid for an all day experience with Gold Prospecting Adventures in Jamestown and learned to pan, run a sluice and look at the ground some. The Hurt Hawks and other videos have helped. I would love to get to knwo some other people and trade ideas. Maybe some local creeks we could hit together for a quick trip. I have been eyeing Gaos Creek on the coast near Pescadero.

Hi Tim, I'm not too far from you in SF. I'm interested in hitting some creeks too. Let me know when you're thinking of going!

Nikkio,

About 2 days after I joined the club, I sold my house and am now in Florida.  You should look at the outings page and join some of them at a claim. I have found the people here to be freindlya nd very knowledgable.
