gold

This is just a tease. I'll post more pics from my recent road trip later when I have more time. My nephew who is a driller at the Ft. Knox gold mine near Fairbanks took us on a private tour. The first pic has my 82 year old Mom, myself and my nephew -- left to right. The gold bar I'm holding has a value of $308,500 at the current spot price for gold. The curved thing behind my head is a woolly mammoth tusk uncovered at the mine.

Re: gold

Dang Griff that is just too cool. Hope you thought to gouge your thumbnail across that bar a few times to snag a sliver of gold just as a souvenir type deal. Fine looking family. Nice tusk.
