So for our next adventure we decided to try panning in a creek. There is a national forest that has quite a few creeks in it and from our GPAA Mining Guide I found out they find gold in them. On looking for the creeks we came across this old grave yard
We didn't find anything. Later on, looking at the web site, I found out there are quite a few snakes in the area. I am so glad we didn't see any. I also found out you have to dig down 2 to 3 feet. We didn't go down anywhere near that far. I wonder if we had, if we would have found something. We will never know, because we never went back. I did find an abandoned tent. I wonder why someone would leave their tent behind, let alone the fact they are littering.
We were staying at a Thousand Trails campground in North Carolina. Ed wasn't impressed with the campsites. Here we are and here is a picture of Ed cleaning the MH. When we were in Florida we weren't able to wash it because everyone said there was a shortage of water. So the coach was really dirty.
We were going to stay in North Carolina 3 weeks, but we decided we had spent enough money on trying to find gold. We left a week early.
Well we decided to make a straight shot home. We went up thru Pennsylvania and then on the Ohio turnpike. Between Ohio and Indiana we spent $45 on tolls. The traffic wasn't too bad and we were able to spend the night at a toll plaza. We are home in Elkhart and we will be here about 2 months.
HAPPY TRAILS Love Ed and Lyn
