dredgeI have been asked to participate in a dredging program in a location that I am not allowed to disclose at the moment. I can only say that it is to the south of where I am presently located in the Philippines.

They say the location is a bit remote, meaning that everything needs to be packed in on foot.  They are camping out there, working about a week at a time before returning to town for supplies.

Check out the gold these guys are recovering!Gold

They say their biggest worry is over deadly-poisonous snakes which hang out around the water.  None of the guys have ever been bitten. So they must have some way of keeping the snakes at bay.

I hate snakes, even the kind that don’t bite.  But in this case, I might try and get over it!

I’ll be over in Bangkok next week signing the Special Edition versions of Extreme Prospector before shipping them off to Portland.  After that, I am thinking of going over to check out this dredging program.  Does anyone want to come along?  If so, let me hear from you on my face book page.
