  6. 24 hour Gold

    Beautiful gold...you're obviously very very close to the source...you two are killing it and what a beautiful gully ...Betcha you've only got started on that one...I smell at least a few ounces there!!!! ... Cheers, Unc

    Re color, definitely light tan or white ... I never wear anything but white when detecting ever! ... Regular ball cap ... Agree move to left ... To risk being blunt, as someone who has been in the business of such designs for many years, I'm honestly not crazy about the whole design ... Too much going on, too many "moving" parts ... The NS treatment doesn't work for me ... I've always designed logos that are solid, simple and sell the concept ... Your original shot gun design, with a few upgrades, was really good ... I would suggest the double barrel with Nuggetshooter underneath all done in grayscale ... simple, to the point, dramatic and sells the idea of hunting nuggets and much $impler to produce. Just my opinion... Cheers, Unc

    Dodacious and I communicate telepathically so often and accurately that it is a common part of our marriage...I'm talking both big and small things, as common as, "While you're at the store pick up some bacon." Cheers, Unc

    In 1984, my Dad had a couple of heart attacks and went to the hospital ... They got him all hooked up on monitors and such and shortly he had another one that killed him...temporarily until they brought him back ... Next day my sister and I got down from N. CA to see him in his San Bernardino hospital room ... He was very upset and crying ...He said that while he was dead, he saw horrible things which he would not describe ... He said that he learned he had been a bad, selfish person and was now terrified of dying...I asked him if it hurt to die and he said no ... The weird thing is that Dad mentored thousands of young people over his many years as a coach and athletic director had given so much of himself and was hugely respected ... He also had taken care my Mother who suffered from MS for more than 10 years, which was a horrible, soul wrenching job .... She had been totally paralyzed on her left side by a mistake made during a spinal tap ... Many years later, in 2008, he came to have prostate cancer and finally had to go into hospice ... As the end grew near, he was again terrified of dying, saying he was afraid the death being painful ... I told him to remember he'd already died and said it didn't hurt, so don't worry about it ... On his final night on earth, my wife, my daughter and I were in Dad's darkened room and we could see and hear he was having trouble breathing ... The three of us were standing over him when suddenly all three of us saw what looked like a glowing white fog rose out of his body ... He was still technically alive for another 4 or 5 hours but the three of us remain convinced we saw his spirit leave his body! It was really weird that at his funeral I stood over him and looked at his remains and felt almost nothing because I knew I wasn't looking at Dad ...I think of that often... I've had my own seeming out of body experiences from the time I was 8 years old and having appendix operation, an experience that seem as vivid and real as it was 64 years ago...But that's a story for another time...Cheers, Unc
  11. Jackass Flats.

    I've hunted there nearly 20 years and only encountered two problems... There's two guys in a large white pick up that come out with several different high powered rifles that don't take into account there are often prospectors roaming all over LSD and shoot indiscriminately ... I called them on it one day and they got downright hostile and even slightly threatening .... I packed up my stuff and moved about 5 miles away... Another time quite a while ago I was hunting on the Gypsy Moth and a couple guys were near the big slab shooting in all kinds of directions and bullets were ricocheting everywhere including over my head! But considering I hunted LSD darn near everyday for those years, those were the only two issue I ever had....But things did get worse after BLM closed the ground near Lake Pleasant and all those city slickers started coming over to the general vicinity of LSD ...Before then, I often had the whole area all to my lonesome! But do make sure you've got the state land permit (you can order on line) ...Still can't prospect on state land... You need it to even pass over state land on your way to open federal lands and club claims.... Good Luck, Cheers, Unc
  12. Dang Got Booted Off the Forum on my Birthday!

    I finally discovered I was on the birthday notices but viewers had to click on the post to see it...I thought it odd not to get any BD wishes cause last year I got a butt load on the forum ... This year on FaceBook I got well over 100 well wishes! Anyhow, no harm no foul and a big thank you to you all who did respond after me whining about it!!!
  13. First year since 2003 this happened!
  14. Trade , GPX4500for CTX 3030

    Holy Crap, Rick, $1900 is amazing for that 4500 and those coils...I someone doesn't get all over that they are missing an amazing deal ... Cheers, Unc!
  15. San Domingo area Grave Site Question ???

    Yep, that's the one ... I've gone to most, if not all, of those graves they have flagged on the map...Most of those graves just look like scattered rocks ...I haven't seen anything that looks like vandalizem , just time and cows! Cheers, Unc PS, there's a big lion that lives in the northern part of that map and I stumbled on a small den of cubs off Eddy Gulch and I was in a spot I would have been in trouble in if mom showed up!
