In October, we took a weekend camping trip.
Our family/friends, Mark and Amanda Dodd invited
us to join them and Autumn on a camping excursion.
I was later told that this was not "roughing it."
The guys had fun gathering kindling and dead limbs to chop for our evening campfire. It was a perfect time of the year! The days were warm and the evenings were cool. We hiked and dug for diamonds.
This park is notorious for diamond digging. There were about 150 people digging on Saturday. Someone actually found a diamond the size of a chicklet gum that same week! After digging and sifting for hours, we felt like we were part of the California Gold Rush! We decided ahead of time that we would split the assets no matter who found what, and that we would tell no-one of our fortune! A diamond the size of a BB was worth about $70. Are we going back?? Next year!
