Yikes, gube, temps around Bend look to be dropping this week. Be sure to bring warm clothes.

I didn't find any gold spots right by Bend but had fun goofing around on forest roads.

Here's a link to some area sites http://www.great-oregon-vacations.com/oregon-gold-panning.html

Have fun! :)

ya gube, and although they say "Go where gold's been found" I still have fun going where it hasn't.

Maybe you'll be the first in a spot or find some other treasure.

Good just to keep it fresh. After the coin hunt Saturday in Quartzsite I wandered over to the empty playground (wouldn't go if kids were there- just one of the conditions of my parole ;)

Shoulda used the GMT cuz the 5000 wouldn't go near metal without goin crazy, but I still cleared a cable clamp with rusty nails by the swings and a button battery.

May even try some dry washing or panning again soon if I'm in the right spot.

It's fun mixing things up- doesn't always have to be beepin for gold.
