Come on down for a day of Fun and Gold
The year was 1849.
The excitement of gold was in the air. The word of gold strikes in California raced across the world like a wildfire on an open prairie.
Farmers, bakers and family men alike left their lives behind in search of the promise to riches. While traveling to the promised land, these men faced disease while traveling through South America, Hostile and deadly Native Americans, Grizzly Bears, Deadly Rattlesnakes, Heat Stroke in the Deserts and Freezing temperatures over the mountain passes. Some men never made it to their destination. All they left behind was a grieving family and a mound of dirt with a wooden stake on it where they rest for eternity. Others made it to the gold fields and had a chance to find their riches. Some left with pockets full of gold while other left broken and penniless.
Times have changed a bit but the lore of gold still makes your heart race. The dream of finding gold still runs through the veins of every man woman and child. To hold a piece of gold in your hand that you dug out of the earth fills your mind with fantasies of riches.
Today, we have it a bit less difficult than the 49'ers. We can drive to our destination, buy an ice cold Coke when hot and stop at our local store to grab a slice of pizza when hungry.
What hasn't changed?
Like the miners of old, we still have to put a shovel in the ground and find the elusive metal we call gold.
We are here to help you fulfill the fantasy or dream of finding a little bit of that gold. We sample areas to find the best places for you to look. Be it flour gold, gold flakes or a nugget, we do the hardest part for you. We find where the gold should be and let you dig it out of the ground. It is still not easy, digging in the dirt is hard work. You earn the gold you keep. When you are done with us you will leave with dirt on your face, sweat on your brow, water in your boots and a smile as big as the moon.
Panning for gold in California is Fun and exciting!
See you soon.
