Hey Stan and all,
I think a lot of people left today Sunday, so I am sure there will be more postings later. The outing with Richard was a great success with many new and old faces showing up. I will let Richard tell more. I came up with 2 finds, a nice size 3.5 gram iron, and a 91 gram chondrite.

Great to hear your out of the hospital. My dad had a stroke 3 years ago, and went blind in his left eye just sees faint shadows, but still is able to get out to the desert. Let me know if you are interested in going to Franconia, I will come pick you up... Your gonna have to navigate Charlies on 1 eye, now that might need some working on..
Since being so hot outside a lot of times I like to go through my concentrates/ 5 gallon buckets. I took a few hours, and even had the Mrs help me pick out a little over half a gram of gold. Will have to get to more of it later when time permits. Just thought I would share a little with everyone.
I use the 5.11 tactical series boots, they have lasted me 3 years so far and have great ankle support. I have gone through several boots. The one problem I have always encountered is catclaws and stickers will every now and then pucture through the bottom of the boot and stick me in the foot , and I need to sit down remove the boot and remove the sticker. I do not want to get the heavier thick soled boots, as they weight a lot, and with all the hiking I do, weight more on the legs. One solution I found is a metal free puncture resistant midsole made by swen-flex. They are lightweight, and I have not had a sticker prick in the foot. http://swencolimited.com/swen-flex/ Dave
The file sharing site Megaupload has been seized by the gobermint I custom make these maps for the garmin GPS, so I am not infringing on anyone. Saginaw72, I Pm'd you. I can send you or anyone else who would like it via email, PM me your email address and I will send.
Nice to meet you at Holbrook. Next time you get out this way, let me know. Also PM me your email address, I could send a garmin map to you.
If you cant beat them, join them, start a greeny wienie company ( Greeny Wienie dot Org) and the purpose of your company is to suction dredge all rivers for mercury, and no you didnt find any gold nor are you looking for gold. What better way to suction dredge than to have the state pay you, and your doing your part by cleaning the waters of uuuuum mercury, yeah thats it !!! Also start a gravel pit business in area's your not suppose to be prospecting for gold, using heavy equipment, trommels, Mills, crushers, classifiers, ect. , also again there is NO GOLD .
Here is an updated garmin topo map of the gold basin/ king tut area. I placed a few locations of the strewn meteorite field that came from the University of Arizona, so I hope Im not stepping on anyones secret locations
Also more dirt roads added, and BLM land area's updated, let me know if you would like to see anything added

P.S. this map is only for garmin gps, and using mapsource to download to your gps or sd memory card.
