            INDIANA

but don't forget to come back
           Gatesville is just a few miles outside of Nashville Indiana.
Salt Creek runs thru Gatesville and we can use about a mile or so of the
                   creek in each direction from the Country Store.

                  The thing about Gatesville is its easy to get into
           (you can drive right upto the creek and unload your gear)
       The waters slow and shallow with geodes for the kids to pickup.
Lets keep the internet
Open in this country

We stopped counting Years ago

Okay well yesterday at the Southern Indiana Chapters meeting I talked about a phone call I received a few days before.
A place called Magilla Entertainment called me about a new TV show they want to start.
they said it will be a mix between "Survival Man" and "Gold Rush". They will take a prospector out in the woods and drop them off for 6 weeks.
I don't know where or when. No age limit or skill limit. If your interested here is the info.
E-mail us ASAP at castingdirector@magilla.tv Send Name, Age, Location, Recent Photo, Phone, And any experience you have in prospecting and mining.
This is open to anyone, club members and everyone else.
But I guess this is the kind of shows they do. Long Island Medium · Moonshiners · Rattled · Beachfront Bargain Hunt · Diesel Brothers.
Good Luck
Yesterday's meeting was wet and nasty but we did find some gold. Photos will be posted later
