    Very cool, nice job.
  5. New buggy!

    That is when I bought it. Yes I wish wheel drive Tundra but I bought the truck before I started getting into Prospecting. I am stuck with the truck so I added some horsepower and pipes to my 2003 TRD Tundra 4.7 V8. It does have a limited slip diff. Which does not help me if I am on a single track down hill and I have to back up. Hence the reason for the 4 wheeler. It fits in the back of my truck perfectly. My dad in Wyoming is building me a trailer to pull it also.

  7. New buggy!

    I have a 2 wheel drive Tundra that i have done some upgrades on and have been stuck a few times. I learned to have my own recovery gear. I was stranded half off a cliff and camped out for 3 days till I started getting low on food. I then had to hike out a few miles and get a ride to an area I had cell service. To say the least I have a good amount of recovery gear. I have a winch on it because it came with it. I also will use my ATV to hunt in Wyoming and other places besides the desert. I see why you also have recovery geat. Funny how we always have to learn after the fact

    Hopefully I do not get it stuck. I have a bunch of vehicle recovery gear if that happens. It’s all part of the adventure anyway isn’t it.

  11. New buggy!

    I go out on the boats sometimes, more when the Bluefin Tuna are close. I got 2 bluefin tuna this year. I like to do a bit of everything, fish, hunt, gold prospect, camp.
  14. New buggy!

    I just picked me up a used 4 wheel drive 4 wheeler with a winch. Also I bought a Minelab Monster and 35 pinpointer. Ready to head to Yuma Monday to Potholes claim. Anybody else interested in going? For warned I am a Greenhorn. I have a drywasher and detector and want to give this a shot. I plan to be out 2-4 Days. I am a member of SPMA here in San Diego and also a GPAA member so I do have access to these claims. I will post pics of my rig. Be warned it is nowhere near the scale of most of you guys but it is a start for me. Plus I do not have $15,000 to put down on a side by side. Lol
  15. Jackass Flats.

    I am wondering if it is safe to prospect out in Jackass Flats alone camping for a few days? Thanks for the help
  16. Jackass Flats.

    I like to go all over. I am retired and like to camp and started to get into prospecting.

  18. Jackass Flats.

    Yep, I just bought a 4wheeler and want to take it out and try it out and also to use my new Minelab Monster. I also am thinking about going out there next week.
  19. Jackass Flats.

    Thank Thank you
  20. Jackass Flats.

    By relatively safe I mean people won’t loot or shoot up my truck with my camping stuff in it while I am out in the 4wheeler detecting. I understand all things come with risks. I was wondering if a lot of people go out there during the week drinking and raising hell. Having fun is fine of course.
  21. Jackass Flats.

    Thanks. I have a camping permit and I am a gpaa member. I live in San Diego and it is far to go for less than a few days. Unfortunately I am by myself and have not many people yet, or people willing to go out with a greenhorn to prospecting. Being out in nature is my home so I am not worried about the wildlife or weather.
  22. I will bring 10 pounds of elk burger to share. I do not have enough to feed 70 people though. I got elk and antelope when I went hunting in Wyoming this past October.
  23. November 17th to 19th Nugget Shooter Outing

    Looking forward to meeting people and learning new stuff. I am a greenhorn exited to start a new adventure. I leave San Diego today early in the morning. Hopefully it will be easy to find a spot to pitch a one man tent.
  24. November 17th to 19th Nugget Shooter Outing

    Perfect. Thank you very much.
  25. Where do I get the exact directions please. I already bought a land use permit and want to leave early in the morning
