Hey All,

   The pictures are at least 20 years apart.  The first picture is taken along a major gold bearing creek here in Arizona, probably in the mid 90's.  The second picture was taken a few years back around Central, Arizona.  One guys aged gracefully, while the other turned GRAY!  I'll let you guess the characters 🙂

Great memories and a lot of gold found over those years together.

Hey Rob, wow what a blast from the past! Great stuff man, I love the pics. The good old days, when I had hair and the nuggets were stacked half a foot deep on the bedrock! :D If I remember right, that top photo was the day we hit that 1/4-oz pocket with your 4" dredge. Lots of good memories from all those trips we made into the back country. We need to plan something for the fall. In the meantime, here are a few I found on my computer...

Aaaahhh the good old days when we were young, skinny and the nuggets were easier to find. Great pictures Rob and Chris sure fun to look, at thank you both.

OK. I’ll give it a slow start.  A bit hard to find pictures.   No cell phone cameras and oh yes  no cell phones either. 🙄

Here I’m setting up to test my new (home  built) dry washer in the mountains east of San Diego.  Machine worked fine, found gold and had fun.

Hey Chris,

   Great times for sure.  The top picture you posted, remember the Polaris Quads we used ..... LOL  I had to get a running start to get up the hill.  The crap we did back then to find some gold.  The second picture I know very well also, spent a lot of time back there with you and also myself over the years.  I still remember the "Guitar" nugget you found, I think you dubbed that wash - Guitar Wash.  

Also, that was one of my best (ours also) days dredging.  I think we ended the day with 7 Dwt's of gold with many smaller nuggets.  I did about 1/2 ounce one day dredging on the Black Canyon on a shallow spot of bedrock, just about blew me away how easy the dredging was, but it ended quickly.  

Dick - Great pictures of the past.  Always great to see them.  

Thanks for all the comments Chris and Fellows.

Rob
