Prospectors and Mountain Men

Prospectors and Mountain Men
Mountain Man Andy
Little known fact, I was a Mountain Man
man for a few years.

I just came across this article by ABC. Apparently with the downward slump in the economy, AKA recession, some have taken to the centuries old practice of heading to the hills with salad spinners and looking for gold in streams and rivers. It's not a bad idea, considering the price of an ounce of gold is around $1,000. Find four or five ounces and your doing fairly well.

The thing that made me laugh is when I first saw the news article my mind instantly went to an old man with a wide brimmed hat sitting over a river and finally jumping up yelling "EURKIA, I dawn gone and stuck gold! ODALLAY!"

With the return of prospectors I'm sure the return of gold towns and taverns can't be far behind. And with those come songs like "oh my darlin' Clementine." Clementine being a girl and not to be confused with the orange of the same name.

I personally am waiting for the return of mountain men. As you can see by the picture at the left, which may or may not have been photoshopped, I am all set for the return of mountain manning. I mean, look at that beard. Do you know how long it took me to grow that thing? It literally took me 5 minutes to find a picture and clip my face on to it. I know, an eternity, but really it's nothing to mountain men.
