this will be my second year of prospecting and i started out with a pan, then got me a sluice box and i have really enjoyed getting out and doing something fun. i went to chicken for the 4th of july gpaa get together and i tried highbanking, it was a real good time.
i just got me a 3" dredge/highbanker combo and i look forward to doing that and see how that changes things.
i an self sufficient whith a place to stay, and get around. i have lived in anchorage for 47 years and i would like to try up north.
My question is what time of year is it comfortable, in the northern regions? also is there any place that one would consider a great place to go? not for the gold but for the experience.
i love alaska and it is so beautiful, color is always nice, but, a nice camp fire and brew is great to
no matter what, one needs to enjoy
i'm just looking for advice, and if you found a place that you felt was a experience worth remembering, it could be a pay to mine or someplace that was so pretty and filled with history, please pass it on
