    assumed37 got a reaction from padraig in Starting A Placer Mining Operation   
    Thank you very much,
    That was the most motivating reply that I have ever received on a gold forum.
    I am very frugal by nature, so it will not be hard to accept your advice. I only need a good piece of land to get started with. I know that My family will not approve because they do not accept it as a legitimate business. However, I do not care what they think, I have to try. This has been my dream ever since I started watching the gold fever show back when I was a kid. I have litreally seen every episode haha.
    (yes, I was a kid when it started coming on TV) Instead of following my dream straight out of highschool, I enlisted in the military and have been on two deployments. Now, my enlistment is running out and I think this is the best time to finally follow my dream. I have had people tell me that I need to stay in for the retirement because I am almost half way. The truth is, if you don't enjoy what you are doing, what is the point in wasting your life? You only get one shot at it, (as far as we know). I am willing to learn from anyone here that is willing to give advice! I am also willing to work for anyone here that is willing to let me work for you! I am no stranger to very long work hours, trust me, I am deployed right now! If I have to get my own claim myself and do all of the work, that is fine too, I have a considerable amount of money saved for that as well. I just need someone to point me in the right direction.
    Is plumas county a good place to start? if not, why? Are there too many reugulations?
    Where should I start?
    What should I start with?
    I am willing to give percentages to anyone that helps!! seriously!!
