    SATX Collector Remember the Alamo!

    My grandfather and I (plus my siblings) used to go to the ghost towns in Arizona desert... much as you describe, the dry weather and low winds would preserve much as it was. We would find various items: Depression glass, gemstones, sometimes a coin or other relic... had a BLAST doing that. There is a lot of history off the beaten path if one only searches for it...

    I am one of the few that DOESN'T do Facebook but my wife does so I will look it up on her account.

    If there is another general link, I can use that as well.

    Territory of Alaska should be in a class of its own...!! Much as the Republic of Texas!!

    Esperanza is the Spanish word for HOPE... one of the things that went through the minds and statements of the Alamo and other battles of the SouthWest... DEFINITELY an area to study...

    Let's discuss after a few drinks..

    Oh it is great to be able to find unusual things and some very old ones too. I didn't know that it is so dry there and I watch a documentary about Alaska once and it always appeared to be dark.

    An excellent book, The Klondike Fever by Peter Berton describes the permafrost. The gold miners set fires to melt the dirt in their diggings.
