It's hard to say good bye to friends but it is our last night. We've had fun, spent a few nights in the wild lookin for gold, we did find some but we're not going to get rich. Being out in the woods was the main thing anyway, finding gold would have been just the icing on the cake. Saw some really pretty country and met some really nice people but most important we just got to spend some quailty time together.
Maybe next year, if our health holds out we're thinking about meeting in Nevada to do some more prospecting and metal detecting. We are looking forward to it. the only sour note in this whole trip was the word that one of our class mates and friends had passed away. We are thinking of you Jimmy and pray that you are waiting for us in a better place.
Anyway, we spent the last night visiting some friends and having fun shooting the bull with people we enjoyed.
