  2. Hi Martin, Satellite pictures show a massive amount of smoke from that fire heading east the fire is huge. We had one here by highway 58 about 2000 ac the pond fire. One about 3 miles behind us on Saturday they hit with phoscheck knocked it down quick, burning up at Walker Basin also. Way too many fires this year, the fire planes have been moving from one to another constantly. Good luck to you no fun to breathe smoke day and night.
  3. Oops, I meant the 'Apple Fire.' The fire started in Cherry Valley which is to the north of Banning/Beaumont. Apple Valley, of course, is nowhere near where the fire burns. Not sure how the 'Apple Fire' name got coined, but my mistake. Anyway, today (Monday) the winds have shifted the fire and smoke blanket due east to smother Palm Springs and places east along the I-10 corridor and is less likely to continue its march towards Yucca Valley.
  4. As of Sunday August 2nd around 2PM anyone wondering what it is like to be 40 miles downwind of the Cherry Fire that started to the north of the 10 Freeway in Beaumont/Banning, it is smokey with fine ash falling and collecting behind the windbreaks. I wouldn't advise anyone to travel into areas that could be cut off by winds that are gusting from the west and south between 10 and 20 knots at times here in Yucca Valley. My guess is that it will be a week or more before we begin seeing an end to this. Everything is tinder dry and just waiting for a spark. Let's keep fingers crossed that we do
  5. Norm, your picture shows what the detectors capable of in the hand of someone who know what he’s doing, beautiful gold!
  6. Nice work Bill, thank you for putting them up.
  7. I think it’s time we put up some pictures of gold found, I think most of these were from club claims or areas the club has/had holdings even one piece that was a prize at one of our Rye Patch outings, so everyone let’s get some interest going as we get ready to rumble on some new ground I know I’m excited to get out there and explore... let’s show our new and prospective members something to get excited about too and post up some gold! left to right, some misc placer gold and my attempt at melting the button’s about 8g and specific gravity tests at 18k, Northern California Sierra, Norther
  8. Happy Birthday Brian!!

    Hope all is well on your end.


  9. Hi Bill, Glad you are ok, I was up at Cerro Gordo a year or so back and the new owners had big plans. The older fellow who has been looking after the site for years is a hard rock miner and his knowledge of the mines in the area and history are great. The Hotel and other buildings were in pretty fine condition and I am saddened to hear they were lost. Jeff G.
  10. That was a real big loss up in Cerro Gordo. They lost the American Hotel and adjacent buildings to fire. I’ll try to get soon to see if I can find anything.
  11. Glad to see see you had no problems . Lot going on up there Cerro Gordo had a fire that destroyed some of the historic town buildings they lost power from a lightning strike and no one can get up there the road washed out. Maybe the storm exposed some gold areas in Mazourka. Good luck to you!
  12. Wow, that was a big one! Doing fine thankfully. They had some major rockfall at Mt Whitney. Fortunately nobody was hurt. Here’s a photo someone took.
  13. Hi Bill, just checking up on you. looks like that 5.8 was in your backyard. hope everything is okay
  14. Glad things are getting better Carlos, we are moving forward now and working on rebuilding from almost zero claims wise. More to come soon and yep you have some reading to do
  15. Hey Carl, best way to come back is to come back strong. Glad to know you are on the mend. Sorry to learn of deaths in your family. Looks like you have some catching up to do...
  16. WOW  Holly Cow.  If I can do anything to help the club down here in Southern AZ, let me know.  After a look see through the forum, I am unable to determine who are current officers are and can't find members directory  to communicate. I am not receiving e-mails if any are being sent.  Members please feel free to msg me and let me know who is on 1st, 2nd and third.


  17. Hi gang. This has been an unusual year for me. Four trips to the emergency room so far this year and lost a couple relatives. I am coming back strong though but kind of confused about what is happening to all my friends in the WSPA. I Have not been receiving e-mails. Are e-mails being sent? Looks like I have a lot of reading to do. I hope you all are doing well and looking forward to catching up. Carl
  18. Great they deserve every penny of it.
  19. Great! Thanks for getting er done!
  20. Thanks JB. See you again soon, hopefully. Be safe and take care (everyone). AA
  21. Thank you John. Hope all is well with you.
  22. HI All On 6/15/20 I sent thru Bill Pay 3 checks for $696.00 each to these three charities. Fisher house foundation Inc. Gary Sinise Foundation. Homes for our troops. While looking up addresses and phone numbers I checked out their web sites. They are all top rated charities and it made me very proud to be a part of this organization. To those of you who helped or put in to this monies my sincere thanks go out to you. With the warmest regards John B. # 2 I Think
  23. Thanks Jeff, I will be standing by.
  24. Desertpilot, I just noticed this recent post and want to thank you for being so patient. The club is smack dab in the middle of reorganization and if all goes well we should be taking in new members within the next thirty days. We have retained an attorney to guide us through this overhaul. There is a meeting of the Board of Directors scheduled for next week and I am optimistic that we will be able to pass needed reforms and will soon be acquiring new claims, and opening up for new members soon thereafter. Again, thank you for your patience. Jeff G.
  25. Is WSPA taking any new members yet?
