Ray, we all deal with winters in a different way - for example: 

 

One of my favorite distractions is to sit down and try to "scheme out" a new sluice box run with Hog mats.  The Wave (for my operation not the BIG WAVE so much) but The Wave will be something I'll be trying out in the new arrangement of mats in my concentrate cleaning Multi-Sluice box this summer.  Of course the two mats that came with it will stay intact (always to be there "Just In Case") but just to see how The Wave plays with other mats. 

 

So, use the down time to get ready for the new mining season - because it's gonna be a good'un!

Hey Rayzer!

 

Just a quick mention that your videos are also thoroughly enjoyed in Australia.  Keep up the good work. 

 

BTW, Have you swept the floor to get any spilled concentrates yet?  THAT's when you know that the withdrawal is at it's worst.

I guess, over the years, we all have done the old "Floor Sweepings Maneuver" during the winters.  It helps to maintain sanity when the Gold Twitching Syndrome rears it's Dragon Head.   😧  😜  

 

I still like designing Hog mat systems, myself.
