I was reviewing my GPAA guide today, and I noticed the Map to the Turkey Creek claim looked a lot like the picture on this thread. I looked a little bit more and I'm pretty sure the Golden Gobbler Claim is not too far from the bridge. When I go to the Yacht club, maybe I can spend all the gold I'll get out of Turkey Creek.
Exactly, that the main reason I've never joined the GPAA, the Buchanan claim at one time many moons ago had some good gold, but it's only so big and it's been worked to death over the years and I can get to North Carolina as fast or faster than I could get to Buchanan so I could never justify spending time and money going there and now that we can't dredge in Tennessee for the past 2 years there's nothing that the GPAA can offer me in the Southeast or east coast for that matter.
When you first said you found a backpack laying on the bridge, I never even thought you meant you found it actually "laying on the bridge", as on the roadway itself.. I saw it leaning against the railing, or maybe hanging around a post or something..
This lead me to envision either someone walking across, spotting and saying "Oohhh, look -- shiny object", then taking off the backpack, taking off down the side, then straight down Alice's rabbit hole, meaning falling where they couldn't easily be seen, or, a female walking across, car/truck comes along n snatches her up, tossing her backpack against the railing while doing so..
Just how my mind works, I guess.. Never even considered it falling out or off of a moving vehicle..
