    Notice how many more nuggets you are finding with those new knee pads? ... just saying. Doc
  2. That gold pan is called the Claw. It is so much easier to use than a round pan. Very fast. Doc
  3. So today was a gold finding lesson for my grandson, Rhett, and granddaughter Kay. They learned to sluice for gold, to use the "Blue Bowl" the Blue Bowl is actually green. The spiral wheel and how to pan. They recovered about $57 dollars worth of gold out of two buckets of dirt I brought back from the desert where I had already found some nuggets. Doc

    Got Gold ?

    I just don't know of any hobby that gives me as much enjoyment as this one. I mean I even get excited when I see that other people have scored nice nuggets. Way to go Adam. Doc

    LOL, TMI. Getting unplugged, dog turd? How in the hell does that go with beautiful sunsets? Sounds like you got the making of a country western song in there somewhere. Doc

    Dear Luke, I have been to Quartzsite, 4 or 5 times but never at that location. I always camped down in the BLM camp grounds by the Dome Rock. Then I would hunt the club's claims, because I have belonged to the Quartzsite club for years. I try to support most of the smaller clubs even if i don't hunt their claims. I have never prospected that area where the outing was going to be held. So that was new dirt to me. The only thing always remember about Quartzsite is two things. One time in April it was like 70 in Vegas, perfect weather. So I thought it would be a good time to take a little trip to Quartzsite. It was 102 degrees down there! How can there be a 32 degree difference only a couple hundred miles from Las Vegas? I was not ready for that at all. The other thing I remember is that the 4 or 5 times I have been there, I have ran into a desert tortoise, every single time. Every time! I don't know if it's the same darn turtle, or it's my spirit animal, or there is just one hell of a lot of Desert Tortoise in the area. Doc

    Luke, what was perplexing? I know you can't hunt on Indian Reservations so I basically wanted to know how we knew where the Indian Reservation lands were located. Bill answered the question simply, the boundaries are marked. That's all I needed to know. It would be like someone who had never been to Gold Basin before, which is adjacent to Lake Mead Recreation Area, asking me, "How do I make sure I don't wander onto the the Recreational area?" The answer is, "They have a boundary fence." Legitimate question and a simple answer. Sorry a simple innocuous question started such a firestorm of controversy. Doc

    I knew we wouldn't hunt there, I just didn't know if there was a way to tell where "there" was. Boundary markers are good. Hunting close to Lake Mead Recreation area I am just paranoid. A couple of guys who were intentionally on the recreation area got their quads, detectors and trucks confiscated a couple of years back. They got them all back after a hefty fine. I don't ever go on the recreation area, but about two months ago a couple of friends were hunting close to the boundary fence and they landed a helicopter and told them they were getting awfully close to the boundary fence and they better not go on the other side of the fence or they would be in big trouble. I thought that was sort of weird. Sorry I didn't mean to cause any troubles, I just wanted to know just the kind of information you gave me, that there are boundary markers. Personally I thought the location was great. Really convenient to have that gas station and quick mart nearby. I'm going, I made plans. But Bill, how in the hell am I supposed to borrow gas and eat your food if you are not going to be there? I can still do prospectamication even if you aren't there. Doc

    Google Maps? Are you sure there is such a thing? Sounds very sophisticated. Thank you for showing me the boundaries. So Jennifer what you are telling me is that in order to keep off the Indian's land I just have to look for the ARROWS? What? No Tomahawks? Doc

    Obviously when we stole all that land from the Indians, we gave them back way too much. Doc

    Question" It looks like a lot of that land around there is on the Colorado River Reservation. How do we know where to prospect at where we are not on Reservation land? Doc

    Buyer beware

    I had a guy bring in a GPX4500 about two years ago that was not working. I was checking the easy things. Testing the curly cord, trying out a new fully charged battery. Then I started to notice little things about the machine. It was counterfeit. But I tell you, if I had not worked with these detectors for many years, I would have never known. The thing was spot on 98%. Just weird little things. Like the charging light on the battery was just an LED behind a plastic lens. The Minelab is the same except the lens has little concentric circles. The blue color of the machine was off, but you could only tell side by side with an authentic machine. Doc
  14. I don't know if this is her address: 2812 Shamrock Dr, Allison Park, PA 15101-3139 Says he was survived by: his wife Jennifer, son Warren, brother Keith, and mother Madeline. It says his mother is 94 to 96 and still lives in Reno. Anyone have a Reno phone book? I would look for listings for his mom, brother .
  15. I'm a Licensed Private Investigator. If you can give me anything more than just a name, I might be able to help locate her. Date of Birth, Social Security, something identifying. Doc
