Dog Sitting For The Familia or Fattening Up Like A Pig

Yeah, thats where Im at. Reduced to the standards of slavery. It's white privilege slavery. My masters are away on a mission of mercy. Thats all I got to say about that.

Broken Down and Bouncing Back

So for the skinny. I actually left about three weeks ago and headed out to do some gold prospecting. Everything was going great for about a week until I went over Wolf Creek Pass in southwest Colorado. Almost as soon as I cleared the pass I knew I had truck problems. The truck never ran hot on me but I lost almost all power. Even on a flat road I could barely make 50 mph pulling the trailer. At that point I knew my plans of going to the Mohave Desert for prospecting was over. I wasn't even going to chance being broke down out there in the middle of no-bloody-where. To top that off I also knew I could not pull the trailer back over the pass either. So I sent out my SOS for help and Scott brought his truck down a few days later and towed it back over the pass for me. He towed it to another place near Texas Creek, Colorado that I wanted to try out before I headed back to Colorado Springs. I spent a week there and it didn't pan out.
So now I am changing gears and skipping the gold hunt for this season. I am going to head back to Wonderland and look for that allusive big crystal find. I don't have any choice at this point. The season to work in the mountains out here are short. So I going all in for it. Hopefully I will get lucky.
I haven't been back to Wonderland in almost two years now. I have a different phone service now too. So I don't knot if I will have a signal there to post a lot. Well see.
