Time for You, a poem

Fly the “easy” kite.
Not the one with all the strings.
‘cause you’ll have more time,
More time to laugh and things.
Fly the easy kite--in all you do:
There will be more time to be
                      “SIMPLY YOU!”

Across from Dole Road and in Coon Hollow is where I usally go. I will sell my gold after I get  a lil bit [more]. I'm 27 looking for a highbanker. I do this for an income right now due to no work. Love to be at the river. It's a good feeling to find a hundred lil flakes in 3 hours time. Makes you feel good.

P.S. So is Coon Hollow private? Rob Perry, of course, will read this. I'm the blogmaster. Happy gold prospecting!

Questions for sirwalt

How to get the gold.

Rob Perry would be the first to tell you that "Gold is where you find it." And, there are many ways of getting the gold from its resting place in the earth, in the river, to your gold pan. Rob's not been at this hobby long, but he's learned some things: "In the end it's just hard work."

So, have fun at gold prospecting, have the right permits, pick up your litter and enjoy the sun on your shoulders. And let us know about your adventures in gold prospecting.

"But, we should have taken it with the rest of the trash we picked up!... Looked like someone was using the leather from the boot for something.... You just never know what you'll find on the river. Today, it wasn't gold! That's for sure."

Prospecting for Gold

Prospecting is always enjoyable in the Oregon forests. It doesn't mean, however, that one always comes home with his pockets stuffed with the shiny stuff. But you can always be sure, that you WILL  learn something valuable! Join Rob and Allan for a few seconds as they "Work for the Gold!"

Outing today yields little gold.

This area was just glorious. The new spring greens lit up the creek moss and bank. It rained a little. The sun broke through the low clouds, warming our shoulders. But, we found not enough "color" to take the place seriously. So how was your prospecting day?  Comment.

"Working Hard for a Living" ... Well, kinda...
