    I met the guy teaching the Peninsula classes.
    Seems like a nice enough guy.
    He shows up at our gold prospectors meetings here in Kenai.
    Being they are titled as an "introduction to placer mining" and "basic prospecting" I do not think I will be going.
    I had my introduction years ago and have the basics down.
    I do need to remember to get my permits for this year though.
    If anybody on the Peninsula wanted to learn something about gold mining I might be willing to take you out sometime. I have plenty of gear.
