    Looks as if there will be a new gold rush to Russia. Should we sell everything and head up there? On second thought Abog probably has us beat. I bet he has a couple hundred pounds of those things by now.

    If it is in the ground and can be found, a safe bet would be it's in Paul's bag....All safe and sound.

    With my luck I would have tripped over the thing. Broke My Neck . Being unable to move just lay there looking at the thing while baking in the sun. Vultures picking at me until the end.

    Oh my Hfire, you got that kind of luck buddy?
    Well you rubbed off a little of your luck on me a little while back in recommending them lucky detector sandals with built in pinpointer. Now I'm using them on the yard to find shanks and such :(
