no throwing your goldfish Freddie on the ground until he flops to a certain spot does not make you a dowser!

His name is Frankie, not Freddie. Frankie is his name. Christ, if he happens across your post he'll probably try killing himself by jumping out a basement window.

Please remember its Frankie, Ms. Blue, he really does have tender feelings. Just like me.

RedJacket...I'll beat that guarantee. I will charge a flat fee of $1000, if you don't hit acceptable water in the first 300 feet I'll refund 100% of your money...no questions asked. I figure I'll be right at least 75% of the time so it should work out fine.

AFAIK the norm in the interior is $30-40 a foot plus the cost of the pump. Where I live water's about a hundred feet down. We may actually have found the one thing that is cheaper in Alaska than in the lower 48

I think it would be best to get cost estimates from those who live in Homer, the $4000 is just a guess by a non-resident.

Well if you think Frankie the fish is insulted you should see how traumatized Freddie the porcine pooch is! He thinks Blue has been cheating on him!

Does anyone know well water situation for residential use just outside Nikolaevsk? There are several properties for sale. Most are claiming wetland status. We are interested in the new Alaskan Wildwood Ranch postings. Thank you in advance.
