Take the Kids!

Hi Gang,
Take the kids! Mine love a good road trip and they're learning a lot about local history.  They're also meeting lots of new and different people in the process.

We recently did an overnight out at Bickel Camp where Charlie Hattendorf and Jose Poblano taught the kids how to pan the "paydirt" that was just extracted via a drywasher from the claim.

The photo on the right shows Alex and Daniella in action working the sand in their pans.

During our time in Last Chance Canyon we Visited Burro Schmidt Tunnel and went through! Remember to bring plenty of flashlights! We had one go out on us while we were on our way back through.

As Charlie Hattendorf would say: "Seeya in  the Hills".
