Re: Hidden in Plain Sight

Jack, Well there is that northwest to southeast line of mineralization that runs through the Goldfield area, stops (pretty much) at the Superstition range and picks up again in the region of Globe. Believe the old silver mines in the east end of the range might be included in that line. Not sure how...

Jack,

That's a lot for us rock-dumb neophytes to absorb.

Nice lesson,

cuzzinjack,

As far as I know, the colors for the seasons and cardinal directions are, white, red, black and blue. Are you certain it's Apache?

Re: NEW BOOK....

cuzzinjack,

Nice post.

To the east of Gov. Well and across the highway, there is a Spanish type excavation. I need to send someone up there someday.

I see two yellow, one white and one red ribbon on your "Apache Hoop". Is that correct?

Thank you,

Joe

Re: NEW BOOK....

cuzzinjack,

If you think that's bad, you should live in Lake Havasu City. Talk about "snail mail". If we mail something local, it used to be sent to Las Vegas and then sent back here. :x :x

It's a good book, with only a few minor glitches.

Take care,

Don,

We're a few miles apart. Easy to get crossed up, but I try to make it as easy as possible. Unfortunately, my mind don't work so good anymore.

Re: Another Dutch Hunter Crosses Over

Mike, As I have said, that's one of the main reasons why the Rendezvous was created. I know the background story of Donald's life, and it isn't a pretty picture. He turned out to be another person altogether from what he presented online. I think, for the most part, many people were surprised at wha...

Re: Another Dutch Hunter Crosses Over

It is with true sadness and regret that I write this: Donald Peterson and I were bitter enemies when we first clashed on this Forum. A few years ago, I made the effort to end that and we became cautious friends. After inviting him to the Rendezvous for a few years, he finally showed up. We gave each...

Hunting rats for a delicacy is an even better touch. The problem is, I have read many of the same books that Kraig has read. I believ...

Re: KRAIG ROBERTS HISTORY.......

Hi Joe; Agreed, a clear pattern has been established. I don't mean to sound overly skeptical, but it struck me as highly STRANGE to say the least, that now at this point in time, over 30 years after the death of Walt Gassler, Mr Roberts suddenly started talking about how he had been close friends w...

Re: Yellow Jackets

Roy,

How many times does that make that Ben has "left the building"? Got to be 20-30. It's become painfully obvious that Africa can't hold Ben, assuming it ever had him. :lol:

Surprised he has never seen the Bent/McGee letters. There's no secret there. 8O

Re: Yellow Jackets

Roy,

As usual, Ben is building his story around others finds. He has been doing it since day one. Ryan is in the process of putting together a TV special, and Ben is trying to use his work to bolster his own tale. It's a very old game, that gets busier when school's out. :lol:

Ben, I have both first edition, U.S. and English, and there is one striking difference in them. In the English version, there is an extra page in the front of the book. In it the author, Ely, states: "The author of this book first heard the story from Jacob Waltz......" That page is not in the Ameri...

Re: Yellow Jackets

Roy,

The Salado did practice irrigation methods and, at least in the area along the salt river and the Tonto Basin, there were no ball courts associated with their culture. That may be due to the small populations in those areas.

Have a great New Year.....

I believe the Salado Indians would be better suited for your example. The Hohokam were, principally, found in...

Ben once posted this picture of OZ:

It was quickly removed, but it only took me a few minutes to find it on the Internet.

It was a good, if fruitless, try.

"As far as books go. Those have already been written. The author did an excellent job it seems".

Did you mean to write "books", as in more than one?

I have no illusions as to my own abilities and knowledge. I doubt, in this lifetime, I could ever post anything close to what you have just done. A man's got to know his limitations.
