headed to Eagle River & U.P. for labor day weekend. took kids to the mine to search for some goodies. had a pile of rock to sort thru. 3 cubic feet of it. all piled up and was told needed to be about 3 inches high. was lots of work. did find some copper. about 15 pounds worth. couple pcs. are pretty cool. a little bit of quartz. then a stop by bond falls on way to E.R. with a bon-fire to finish off the nite. then on sunday went to Crandon,wi. for 40th anniversary borgwarner world championship off road racing.
