    Odd Places

    I look forward to seeing what else your project produces.
  5. Hey guys both Desertpilot and Tortuga are the real resources on the Boarder topic. One in the air, one on the ground. The best of men, the real good guy's! I pray that God keeps them safe and the government provides you with the tool to get the job done. Your right Tortuga but I can help to get pissed having to stop at a border checkpoint 40 miles from the border. What is your opinion on this weeks change in position by Trump's executive order?

    Getting Some Rain?

    In Tucson 6-16-18 we have had good showers overnight and this afternoon. No records but it might jump-start the monsoon. As I write a shower is coming down so hard you can barely see across the street. Whats happening where you are?

    A close-up!... Dude That thing is gnarly and it has a hair! From the looks of it, I believe that is just the past leaving itself behind. Sounds like your headed in the right direction now.

    Which detector?

    For what it's worth being an experience GB2 user. In my opinion, I don't believe that Docs opinion is informed enough to have any unbias weight on this subject. I hunted with a guy today that ran the Monster without headphones so I could hear him throughout the day. I took him to a spot that has produced many pieces of gold with the GB2. I heard him gound balancing that machine constantly all day. And yes, he had training from Bill. I have owned my GB2 for over 12 years and have never used or needed a coil cover. My coil has no real signs of wear. In my opinion, a coil cover just puts you that much further from the target. Once balanced, I gound Balance my GB2 very few times during the course the day checking periodically with only fine adjustments. He threw me some of the hot rocks that were screaming on the Gold Monster that barely broke the threshold on the GB2. While the hot rocks he detected sounded just like gold (lead, Iron, BB's Etc.) on the monster. It seemed like he literally chased hot rocks all day. I noticed that there is no distinction of sound on the Monster. No round sound of hot rocks, slightly sharper on iron and the sharp-peaked sound of birdshot or gold. He found a few BB's which might be promising. I had him run the Gold Monster over proven ground where I have taken many nuggets. The monster found no gold. While the GB2 was able to pick off a couple of pieces of gold just feet away. This may mean nothing to anyone. To me, it means I would purchase another GB2 before Purchasing a Gold Monster. Maybe it is the experienced detector vs a new machine but the hype sometimes over promises and under delivers. I challenge you to find a well-kept GB2 for less than 75% of what someone paid for it new even 12 years ago. Just my opinion.
