i was in this. it was fun but you start wanting to get newer, better equipment and you spend enough on it that you will NEVER come close to making enough to pay for what you've spent....kinda like hunting and fishing. so, enjoy yourself, have a good time, but dont expect to make money in ohio.

I was married to a gold digger once. But she wasn't worth $1 a pound let alone $1300 an ounce. Sometimes I miss her......then that rash flares up.

I was digging all night. All I found was worthless rocks and an underground cable. When I hit it with the shovel it threw me over the neighbor's fence up in a tree.

Gold prospecting is obviously very dangerous!
Let's get certified first for $40k before we are allowed to prospect.

And we make fun of other (third world) countries. We are now sifting for gold because the world bankers/fed has taken everything we had. The U.S. is the most pitiful nation on the planet.

If you feel the U.S. is the most pitiful nation on the planet, why don't you move to another country, we do not need people like you here always crying & complaining like the baby you are. Do everyone a favor shut-up or grow-up.

7 of my neighbors did some digging last night on my property.

There seems to be a rush for gold in our neighborhood.

I wish the media would have been silent about all the gold in Ohio.

As long we don't want to dig for silver our economy must be just fine.

Google Earth has just released the Streetview pics for Germany. Take a look what high quality their infrastructure is over there. Columbus is Third World compared to a German city same size.

for your info, all the people i knew in cent ohio gold prospector's club had jobs. except the old, retired ones. it's a hobby. like fishing, or playing biongo or collecting stamps. did your mother drop you on your head (several times) when you were a baqby? well, she should have!
Hello Bob, I have tried just about everything once but I might be interested in a game or two of biongo, if you got the time to teach me how to play.

Last time I checked no one had a gun to your head to force you to stay. Hit the road son and getta f...out of here. Yeah, the fritzes will give you a clean corner to sleep on. If you don't like sifting for gold here you will certainly like washing their crap there. Soon enough you won't have enough knees to fall on, beg for forgivness and come back like a dog with the tail in his ass. Boy, I wish I was at the gate (of the most pitiful nation on the planet) when this happens...

Maybe Revish could use some of that gold to take broadcasting lessons. Hey, Jerr...try looking into the right camera once in a while. Seriously...I'd give both you and the Crypt Keeper Cowtown Emmys if you would just quit stammering and stuttering. Jesus...you sound like Rain Man.
