    I may not be getting there until 6 or so. The weather keeps changing. Not sure when it will stop. It now shows rain until midnight. I am wondering if I have anything I can use to pan. I will think of something.

    Seriously considering making the trip, would a MSR Alpine plate work for panning? Never tried but I'd be in for tagging along. 7.5" diameter and about 1" - 1 1/2" lip.

    Looks like it would, but I would think u wouldnt want to ruin it... unless you found enough gold to pay for a new one.

    So for the last 5 days during the day, weatherunderground has reported a not too bad forecast for Thursday daytime with some rain/ice/snow maybe overnight. Then when their evening forecast comes out it has consitently worse.

    All the while the Friday forecast has slowly gotten worse. while the Saturday and Sunday forecasts have been decent the whole time.

    Right now the forecast reads:

    Thursday Night
    Cloudy with a mixture of winter precipitation. Low 33F. Winds NE at 15 to 25 mph. Snow and ice accumulating 3 to 5 inches.

    Friday
    A wintry mix in the morning will transition to mainly rain in the afternoon. High 43F. Winds NNE at 15 to 25 mph. Snow and ice accumulations less than one inch

    I'm planning to meet Firebird at Yates Place early afternoon tomorrow to unload the firewood. I'm staying the night to guard it. Looks like Grubartez will be the first to arrive Friday. Please bring equipment to chip me out of my hammock before you go off panning for treasure.

    Thanks,
    Pappy

    Right now I'm on in watch mode on the trip or not. We admitted my grandmother into the hospital last night. My uncle and myself are still planning to leave in the morning, but things will hinge on how it all goes with my granny. Hoping for the best.
    Aim for the moon, if you miss, at least you will still be among the stars.

    Good luck. I'm not too keen on hanging if the trees have ice on them. I will be able to chip you out if needed, but not until suppertime...

    Kindest regards, Gru. Hope you and your family (and your grandmother) all get thru this passage as best you can.
