    Cool pics Gary! Hes a biggen. If your cruzing at 40 down a dirt road.......I think I know where you were I saw one back in the early 80s there on a ledge in a mine shaft. As a dumb kid I was taking little pebbles and bouncing them off of him. Dont be fooled by their little stubby legs and fat body. Those things can move FAST! He shot out of the shaft so fast it scared me. Would not do that now as I have come to respect the desert critters. Great pics. Tom H.

    So what do you do....

    Crap! nice find!!! Get some one to slab it and make pendents out of it Looks solid enough. WTG Tom H.
  7. Had a really great 4 days back in the hills looking for gold. Met up with some great friends around Dewey/Humboldt area. There is a lot of gold in this spot but unfortunately.....none of us could seem to get our detectors over it??? Oh well. That is why its called prospecting and not picking up gold We had a blast. Thurs night the rain dumped on us. It got down to about 70F and we all just sat under our canopies soaking it in feeling sorry for the folks in the city. Pretty cool to see normally dry washes flowing. Next two days were kind of muggy though BLAH.... The hand stack in the pic was 3 feet high and about 20 ft long. Someone put a heck of a lot of work in that area..Ate a lot of good food, made new friends and reminisced a lot. The view was AWESOME from camp. Just had a really good time out of the PHX furnace.My cool find was a old shot gun shell base made from 1860-1930s Enjoy!!!!

    Oh, on a side note Gary.....I will never poke at you complaining about the heat up there Fri/Sat it was so hot and humid I only got about 3-4 hrs a day in detecting. I went up a wash about 1.5 miles and went through my whole 3 liter back pack of water! I was pouring. Taker easy. Tom H.

    Doc: The original camp ground we were going to is very small and we had it filled up with five families. It had to change the day before the camp out and we found a bigger one....so, next year It was pretty hot and muggy! Tom
