Beyond Gold Prospecting

Outdoor Cooking, Wilderness Survival, Amateur Astronomy

There is so much more to prospecting that simply finding gold. The ability to get away from the hustle of modern society and immerse yourself in nature is a very important aspect of recreational prospecting. This is area of my website is dedicated to other topics that make recreational propecting more fun and safe. I do not pretend to be an expert in these areas, but if you have some advice or a funny story that you would like to offer, then send me an email. I may add it to the page.
