Do any of you pan, dredge, etc for gold and other precious metals?

My grandparents use to pan when I was a kid.  Kinda cool to think about hitting the 'big one'!  They never did but seemed to enjoy it just the same.

I have a buddy out in California that has a portable sluice. He takes it out a couple of times a month. He made enough off of it this year to buy a new truck. With all of the rain they had this past year has churned up a lot of gold.

It can be a very rewarding hobby. The equipment can be a little expensive but you can "substitute" some things and make a lot like sluices. The only real problem is finding where the gold is..
