    I enjoy any time out in nature away from 'City Life'.

    Would like to develop lasting friendships.

    I was born here and no plans to leave, so...

    Whites Detectors

    The cost of using EBAY is roughly 20% of the sale price. 10% for EBAY, 5% for PayPal, and then you're left with the shipping if you decide to offer it. The convenience and speed at which items may sell is often times worth the 'loss'. IMO.

    Where am I ...?

    ...behind the camera? Other than that, I've got no clue. I'm interested to find out though.... It does look a little like a spot off of Poland Rd. Although, that trench wasn't there last time I was, if that's the same place. I'm guessing the water is 'seasonal'. Luke

    So what do you do....

    Very nice find !! I agree with everyone who said to keep it as it is and maybe carry it around from time to time. Congrats !!

    Pretty cool Gary. I observed one just like that last year on 'that same road'. Same thing, cruising along and dude was just getting across the road and trying to make it out of sight. Pulled over and 'snapped' a few photos. I've also seen a couple of coach whip snakes in that same area. One of them was red. They move so fast though, I wasn't able to get a picture of either.

    "Clay talks about fires and stuff"!!!

    ….it's a dandy !!
  12. The main difference I see right away is your pictures are out of focus and without sufficient lighting. Perhaps if we all could see, "what you see", then you would have a stronger argument. That's why many times it seems as if you're just trolling here. If you're so sure you've got the real thing, why are the pictures always blurry?

    Just some average Arizona gold

    Maybe you'll get the chance.

    Oh Bob... I was trying to pretend I didn't see your request. Mostly because when Woody's Mods are mentioned it tends to cause a controversy. Long story short. I traded my Eq800 straight across for a GPX4000 in June. I sold some gold and a bunch of redundant metal detecting accessories I had accumulated and now I have a modded 4000. I've been out a few times with the 4000. It's been hot so things should get more interesting once it cools down. I've found a couple nuggets with the 4000. A .7g around 4 inches deep. Nothing special. And a .1g about 4 inches deep, measured with my scoop. Which is a little more interesting. The main thing about the mods is that they allow for a more versatile detector. I can put on a small coil and tune it so it will be comparable to an SDC, or I can put on a large coil and tune it to go deep and find bigger stuff. Arizona doesn't have a lot of deep ground so I've been experimenting with an 11" coil and going over ground I've been over before. I don't expect a bunch of gold to jump out of the ground. I was just very curious about the mods and found a way to make it happen. Stay tuned. Luke

    Me too. Mostly the SDC2300. A few of the nuggets pictured were found with a VLF, either GoldRacer (sold it) or GoldMaster (still use it) and a few were found with a GPX.
