Hi Myrl- as a kid from Texas, who had cowboy boots, a hat and side-arm, and a bicycle for a horse, I'd love this!

Myrl Jeffcoat - Your title and photos put a big smile on my face. I would enjoy participating in the celebration of "Gold Rush Days!' Though the concept of searching for gold isn't new, it's always fun and a thrill to know there are people always out there hunting for golden opportunities!

What interesting looking characters Myrl - I grew up on Gunsmoke, the Rifleman and great westerns, so I would truly enjoy being in Old Sacramento for Gold Rush Days.  I bet you had a great time!
