I am an absolute beginner to Gold Prospecting, though I had a two-plus year membership with the GPAA several years back. My family and I went to a Gold Show, Gold Fever on Outdoor Channel, in Stockton, CA.
Unfortunatly, I never took advantage of any of the free "gatherings" on different sites throughout California. I would like to change that.
I am a single father with a 14 year-old daughter and a 16 year-old son. We enjoy camping, waterfowl hunting, upland game hunting (Turkey, Pheasant, Quail, etc).
I am also an avid Fly Fisher and Fly Tyier for over 30 years- having taught over a hundred students in both subjects...want to learn?
I have read many books and watched hundreds of shows on prospecting.
I hope I can meet some folks interested in showing some beginners how to do it. We have some basic equipment, and lots of heart and desire! Keep the GOLD, just give us some hands-on.
