    So I takes my girlfriend out to teach her to metal detect for gold nuggets and set her up with the GM 1000 and gave her some quick training.... We hunted a few hours near Lynx Creek, AZ and I was skunked by the time the heat and bugs ran us off. Tammy on the other hand scored her very first gold nugget....

    Man I have to tell you that all this rain here and other disasters like fire have really changed the landscape in many areas I hunt. I am truly amazed and how much material has been moved, moved around, or is newly exposed by fire waiting for my metal detectors. Plus not only is allot of earth changes there have also over the last couple years been changes in detecting technology! Like being able to hunt freshly burned areas without dealing with charcoal driving the detector crazy. A couple areas I hunt quite often have had so much rain in a short time that washes are almost unrecognizable the material has been moved around so much and add to that the erosion on hillsides has also been huge in some areas allowing us to hear a few inches deeper in some areas. My too do list is long this season and I am excited with a hand full of new toys and a bad case of cabin fever, I am excited about this year

    Thanks Bill for keeping the old threads on your server. Chris G took a lot of his old threads down and there was a lot of good information lost. Mitchel

    The engine case is cleaning up nicely I soda blast the paint off first, then apply a dilute phosphoric acid to small areas at a time and quickly wash it off with water. A little scrubbing with a red scotchbrite pad is all it takes to get it looking new again. Soda blasting works well, but it uses a LOT of soda. The last pic is a before and after.

    Many of you know that I've had my home for sale.......well it'll be closing soon :whoopie: But that left me with a problem :confused0013: A detector and quad that I won't be needing in Michigan..... Today I took out a friend that's never used a detector to show my quad and while there I'd let him see how the trusty minelab worked...... He bought them both.......Thank you Greaterville, and John B for a beautiful 6.5 oz specimen :icon_mrgreen: Tom

    With everything that's going on these days, it seems like they're telling us not to go outside anymore because we might die of something. Hell, we're all going to get killed one way or another so we might as well enjoy ourselves doing it.😉

    Probably just as well we didn't meet up. I was going to go out either way ...but, when I woke up at 6am it didn't feel even slightly cool, so I just slept in. By 8am it was 80 out with humidity sitting at about 40% (too uncomfortable for me to fight the sweat in my eyes and the biting bugs swarming in and out of my nose). I would say that I hope that you and Tammy find those spots on your way back down the hill to be cool (temp-wise) and comfortable to detect, But I know this time of year that hopefulness is completely without reason or reality; especially if you are going back down thru Skull Valley. Yes, I do plan to come down that way a few times when it cools off this fall. When the ground is frozen (with or without snow) up here, I usually head for the lower areas

    Hi all, The boys and a friend of mine headed out to do a night hunt last night. No gold AGAIN but we did find a sweet coin and relic spot I've been researching. Cameron my oldest found the first coin of the night and his first coin for some time now. It's a 1867 Shield Nickel in pretty good shape. Then I ended up finding the 1876 Seated Quarter and a Chinese coin. The quarter is in really good shape but the pics don't show it real well. We also found some awesome buttons. My little guy found the big button with the hog on it. He started laughing histericly when he seen what it was. Apparently 8 year olds find a pig on a button funny lol. Other than that, I found my first skeleton key and first intact pocket watch frame. It still opens too. And a realy cool gold gilded feather or leaf that i hit with my pick and broke. My buddy found a really cool mini hammer and what looks to be a mini flathead screwdriver. And several buttons. It was a long but fun night. Take care everyone. Dan

    Darn Bill,... How come you didn't give me a holler while you where up around the Lynx???? I could have taken you to a couple of spots to elude the skunk, and really give that new monster-thangee a run for it's money. Oh, that's right you "flat-landers" don't take to sharing spots,......OOOOOOKKKKKKK

    Yeaa Tammy, that's showing the old boy a thing or two. I've got to find my first one with the Monster but Tom found one and promptly lost it in camp. I wonder if that counts? Old Tom

    I'm suprized its real gold that must have cost a fortune, so maybe a famous NFL athlete's or rappers. Either way you can go around biting people and not get caught. The glove doesn't fit..
