There’s a story about the California gold rush that tells of two brothers who sold all they had and went prospecting for gold. They discovered a vein of the shining ore, staked a claim, and proceeded to get down to the serious business of getting the gold ore out of the mine. All went well at first, but then a strange thing happened. The vein of gold ore disappeared! They had come to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there. The brothers continued to pick away, but without succes. Finally, they gave up in disgust.

They sold their equipment and claim rights for a few hundred dollars, and took the train back home. Now the man who bought the claim hired an engineer to examine the rock strata of the mine. The engineer advised him to continue digging in the same spot where the former owners had left off. And three feet deeper, the new owner struck gold.

A little more persistence/peserverance and the two brothers would have been millionaires themselves.

That’s gold in you too. Do you need to dig three feet farther?


Welcome FNG

Brad Gibson “Sweet Tooth” – Great hustle this morning. We appreciate you making the commitment to come out and help each one of us get better. Looking forward to seeing you again on Thursday.


Labor Day, Monday September 4th 0600 – We will be having another event similar to our Bottle Rocket Beatdown. These are always a lot of fun with a good mix of hard effort. Get your bones out of bed on your “day off” and get better with us.
