Bill, thanks for the great blog, it does make me think about what I should be doing.

You have much more real gold up there than we have down here.

It can be noted that if you are panning for gold in one spot for 1/2 year and no gold.. perhaps you need to go to a different location

* Thanks Laura * Glad you feel it's worth sharing Joy, Thanks * Thanks for commenting Charitable, keep on Prospecting! * just more food for thought Eric thanks for dropping by * Wayne, you may be right but it's still the 80/20 rule no matter how much Gold is in the creek 80% of what ever Gold is in the creek will be found by 20% of the Panners * You might be right Fernando, or maybe you have to change your method of panning.
