Advantages of a GPAA Membership

Great for retirees. Want to go gold prospecting, camping, and even fishing for free? Well here you go; a GPAA membership. Why pay to camp? State and federal lands have fees, and time limits that you can stay. KOA's are getting expensive to stay at. I've already found 8 claims-on beautiful Montana and California claims with these great ammenities.

Happy Birthday dad

I was very happy with the bundle. I got, It was a gift for my birthday from my son. And I had the opportunity to introduce my father-in-law, to panning and looking for gold. Now that I'm retired. I have the opportunity to use the membership, I might even go GPAA. LDMA.
