    Hi Kevin,

    I wish so bad to be able to be at this outing and wish I could join you on 1/10-11 in Lytle Creek SB ABLE 30L and the Hey Budee 10 - 1/13-14

    but I am not able to.

    the Summitt claims you visited on 1/6-7 is some of my favorite claims - I want to hear from you about your day.

    Can you post an update on what you found, and what you experienced on these dates here on this forum thread???

    the SB ABLE - I have tried this claim a few times and posted my results but my mind says you must get to the far WEST SIDE where the water will flow if it is at all. the area that is in between the parking spot and that far west side is riddled with LED and BULLETS and the digging is some of the hardest I have experienced and will take some real BUSH WACKING to get there.. Tough to get through but that is where you need to spend your time from that water path to the base of the hills to the West. You can see on Google Earth the area I am talking about.

    the other is the hill just across the street from the parking spot - just a note some Gold is coming off that hill and at the base and in the crevasses. I have sampled a few really hard to get to spots at the base of that hill and found some there. Tough to get to due to Bushes and Brush.

    again, wish so bad I had the time to meet you out there but wanted to wish you luck AND hear about your day and what you experienced and found.

    thanks Kevin for all you do

    Don,

    Where are you seeing info about those Gold Trails events (1/10-11/2024, etc.) listed? If I click on Mining Events / GPAA Events, and click on View Kevin's Schedule..., I see "CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES" and that GPAA is "in the middle of planning future Gold Trails events".

    Thanks!

    Thanks, Don!
    Oh, yeah. I had forgotten about those event guides.
    I had signed up for the Feb. 10-11 event at the Congress Group claims, but, that event was cancelled (after we made our travel plans). The GPAA office was kind enough to phone with the cancellation news.
    The website appears to be not just incomplete, but, misleading with regard to the reason that there are no events listed online.
