STORIES FROM THE GOLDFIELDS
Attempts to find gold often wind up with little to show for the effort but cuts, sprains, bruises, blisters, exhaustion, and the appetite of a horse. No disrespect intended. After a day of prospecting, I'll bet that when you hit the sack, sleep will quickly follow. Maybe, after a while, you'll start to work your way into better physical condition, but in the meantime, expect to take a beating. If you didn't know this before you went gold mining, you're about to find out what work's all about.The fact is, a guy can't always load up his ATV or jeep with provisions and cruise down to a favorite honey hole. To some of you, prospecting for gold probably sounds romantic, a relaxing romp in the woods. Don't kid yourself.In the past, plenty of folks figured gold just laid around on the ground waiting to be picked up. During the California Gold Rush, this massive exodus of 49ers from all over the globe figured making their fortune would be easy. They read so much bull about instant riches, all those poor farmers and shop-keeps could think about was how wealthy they were before they’d even stuck a shovel in the ground. I imagine, to a man, they expected to hit it big. In truth, very few did.Gold fever and dreams of finding the Mother Lode aside, to the adventurous individual living in today’s kitschy, stressful, hip-hop, infectious world, there's a lot more to prospecting for bits of yellow metal than meets the eye. There is tranquility, independence, self-sufficiency, self-esteem. Did I mention 'work'? You may even begin to develop a whole new appreciation for nature and the therapeutic value of hard manual labor. Each attribute, taken apart or all together, can transcend the almighty buck. There are many things awaiting in the wilderness you could never put a price on. In the depths of a mountain range, youfind yourself flirting with danger constantly.Considering the perils of urban life these days, why would anyone really need to fear the great outdoors? The rules are simple. Our kind either learns to survive the hardships of living in the natural world or they won't make it. The physical nature of mining is inherently difficult as are the conditions you will find yourself working in. Having been a digger for eighteen years, there's no way to count how many times I've been skunked and disappointed.Most people who leave something else behind to pursue gold become stronger, more self-sufficient. They may not strike it rich money-wise, but there are far better things in life than money. Working the wide open spaces every day, I came to know utter peace and contentment even when those spaces were underwater. Surrounded by nature, full of hope, and chasing my elusive dream, I imposed my will on life and did what I wanted to do. This was a good decision. The prospector lifestyle fit like a glove. There's no feeling in the world quite like the one you get when you find gold in some desolate place where no one else thought to look before. credit - G. Ralph
