    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register.

sunvalleyjoe created the topic: Dodge power wagon in Ballarat
I just finished a book called Last Prospectors of Death valley. There is a photo of old Army power wagon that they used in the 50's.They talk about leaving equipment in Ballarat when the went back to LA area for provisions. The truck in photo looks the same cept front end could have been repaired with different parts. This might explain a lot of stories who owned the truck. I bought the book in Shoshone museum some years back. They also talk about meeting Charlie and him trying to con them a few times good read. SVJ 2nd photo Viking mine on way to south pass
