I am excited to see that gold fever is alive and well. When fully in bloom it defeats all known nervous and intelligence systems within the human body. Color in a pan tops gals in a bikini any day.
I spent summers as a kid digging and crushing, panning and sluicing and building mercury retorts. Smelting gold and distilling mercury. Probably made $3000 over 3 summers in the '60's.
God how I miss it.
Brian, good thread and lovely photos from all. A couple from me.

A great and thorough trip report as usual. The food picture at the Ahwahnee had a bit more class than the typical in the camper picture. :B One of my favorite spots. I am proud and pleased a RVNetter helped out a lady in distress. Good job.
I have not traveled or posted in a while due to lousy health. This year my body parts are cooperating so we took a trip from Reno to Massachusetts. We took the northern route through Tetons, Yellowstone, Great Lakes and Niagara Falls. Rather than post pictures I made 15 minute video and posted it on Youtube.
