    From now on, this is the perfect default ending to any thread that goes astray... We simply turn the thread over to Don, cause he's got the goods!

    Hey, what I'm really worried about is that "Pee-Pee dance thing that Darin mentioned in the above post. I'm not sure I wanna know any more about that.

    You're right, Don. They are kind of between Telluride and Silverton and the old & new were about 2 miles apart.

    Okay, okay, I'll just call Billy Crystal and he can show me how to do the Walter Huston dance from City Slickers!

    Well I'm just going to have to go to Ophir Days this year. I was just in Ophir a week and a half ago going through the old Ophir Hill Mine as well as the Miner's Delight Mine with Mojave Underground. I'll post pictures soon. Anybody else planning on attending Ophir Days? Maybe we can carpool? I'm in Salt Lake.

    I also found out Eureka's Silver Days are Aug. 12-15. I'm also planning on heading out there. Not sure which day yet; whenever my mother in law doesn't need her car I guess, unless I can catch a ride with somebody.

    Is that the Eureka that is in UT as well? Just went through that town last weekend......big changes.....many of the old buildings that housed a current business are boarded up.....seems like everyone's front yard now has a pile of rocks 2' deep instead of the lawn they once had.....also heard that some state agency wants to cap all the old mines to prevent 0 access. Oh well.....progress???

    They like to call their "progress" reclamation. I call it destroying our history. Sad....
