    IMPORTANT REMINDER from Administration

    I wasn't talking about you Bob.

    IMPORTANT REMINDER from Administration

    Isn't it a touch disingenuous to excuse bad language by attributing worse behavior to young people we don't even know who might be looking at the site to learn something?.

    "Clay talks about fires and stuff"!!!

    This looks like a dead-end somewhere along in here...no map needed. Just kidding, just wanted to see if I could change the subject.

    Mike Furness , got a question

    Sightly off topic, but while paddling a kayak on a river in Washington State that was a light blue color from snow runoff I flipped over. I was not wearing a wetsuit and by the time I surfaced I could only use one arm to hook a nylon rope loop on the bow. The rest of me was so frozen I could only float helplessly as the boat followed the blue current. I was saved by friends who had the presence of mind to jump into a car and drive downstream to the next pull-out and snag me as I went by. It took over three hours lying in the sun on dark rocks to start to feel halfway normal. I cannot imagine being in a kayak and tipping if you can't get your feet wet. When you tip everything gets wet even if you wear a splash-shield. I would get a barge or something that won't tip at all if you simply must be on the water. Good luck

    Bur Abor strewn field ,kenya

    We have certainly seen the effects of BB's wag in full force on this forum in times past. It's true some side effects do indeed include Winds and Vapours. We have even witnessed progressions to convulsions, fainting spells and forum bans. Wag has also triggered near-combustible discussions that have ranged far beyond gold and mining and out into topics that, despite their occasional polarization and political inflammation, have produced some of the most entertaining and interesting discussions I have seen on any forum anywhere. We know one way or the other it'll be a mind-bending and fun ride. It's up to all of us to keep it on the rails.

    If I had your gift of gab Bob I'd bottle it and sell it online as a two-pack special with Unc's CBD oil. Hope they're biting on the river. Have fun.

    Awesome new technology we're enjoying

    These days, VERY remote. One of the things that is very much coming into focus these days is how many very powerful but non-dangerous natural plant remedies there are that can virtually replace these insane "medicines" we have foisted on us in the Dr.'s offices across the countries (read in part, opiates). Ron I'm happy to hear you are beginning to feel better. No one who loves the desert as much as you do deserves what you have been through.

    Found a interesting stone

    The spirit of the discussion and the information is oxygen to the forum. It's fun to be able to read along with some people who actually know (I think), what they are talking about even if it's about something that seems unknowable at the moment. Rock on gents and thanks for taking the time to bring us along on the ride.

    Frank C's old White's GMT

    BBob it's about time we bathed in your prose again, it's been too long. I have no doubt that young man will find a shitload of gold with that machine of Franks. Welcome back.

    Yeah, 'stumble' is not how I would characterize what he is doing...

    BLM Officer Shoots Woman After Pursuit

    Whatever this incident was, it sounds as though it got pretty out-of-control. Please keep us updated if you hear of any more news on this.

    Question about Equinox 800

    AzNuggetBob, That last post is especially relevant with the Equinox, it has a very particular tonal language.

    equinox 800 1st time out

    The Equinox has a learning curve for sure. It has its own tonal language and the multi-frequency setting continues to impress. It is by far the most versatile detector I have ever used. I look forward to hearing your impressions pondman. Don't be worried about turning up the sensitivity, the machine will tell you when you've gone too far. Have fun.

    TWO EQ 800

    Hi Bill, I have been out with the 800 for 7 short days at the beach and about 12 short days a park. I have found over 1200 coins, six rings (a couple silver, none valuable), and a bunch of earrings, charms, military badges etc. This thing smokes on coins. I have the same feeling with this machine that I do with the GPZ, if I go over it I'm gonna hear it. It does take some learning but heck that's what this whole hobby is about right? Hope you are well Bill.
