    My Trip To The Dream Stream

    I got a opportunity to hunt the famous "Dream Stream" a couple of times this week after work. Last year Tom "Hiluxyota" did some research and found a virgin swimming hole! Tom alone found over 30 gold rings, plus lots of silver coins and jewlery as well! Turns out a couple of people found out the location and word spread like wild fire! So Tom told me to go get some before the looters did.

    First gold from the water this year!
    1930 class ring.


    A short while later gold #2 FTY.
    Another class ring from Iowa?



    Thanks again for the tip Tom!

    Thanks for lookin and HH!
