  1. Happy Birthday Luke, you're now a big boy at 4 years old, it's time for you to get out and get yourself a birthday nugget now that you're almost grown!!!

  2. Thanks guys !! I went out yesterday and found 4 !! They're small, but better than the skunk. I found three with the SDC and one with the Goldmaster V/sat in a thrashed patch known as 'the Birthday nugget spot'. The pickin's are getting slim around those parts, I hope I can keep the tradition going next year. I'll also take this moment to wish everyone who had a birthday this year.... Happy Birthday !! We all made it around the sun again !! Luke

  3. WELL,.. "THANKS" for all you're comments "fellow-detector-dudes !!" I consider any day a Great Day when I can walk away with at least one one-gram-nugget for my efforts that day, as they appear to be becoming few and far between these days. So I was delighted to say the least to get just under 5 grams with those three larger nuggets that day. "So the Hunt Continues,....."

  4. I think 70 lbs is more bow than I want to tackle Bob. Hurts my joints just thinking about it. It's a good deal on a great bow though. When I was in much better shape, 65lbs was all I could handle and still hit something. I definitely want to explore the lower poundage road this time around. With my bad elbow, I may not even be able to draw a 45 I'll find out tomorrow at sportsmans!

  5. When I was a youngster and fresh back to the States after living outside the country since infancy, I discovered a coal and diamond deposit next to and under an old school building in Arizona. The deposit consisted of dime-sized chunks of coal, which I correctly identified, and many small diamonds, some with perfect clarity, and others with either green or blue impurities. The incorrectly identified "diamonds" even scratched glass, which I proved on the windows of my mother's home (undiscovered until later). I let my best friend in on the secret, drew up a 60-40 contract in my favor (he

  6. Been shopping Craigslist/offer up and Facebook Market place for the last two months for a quad to use for exploring and detecting. Had a guy sell one out from under me when I was going to take a look at it. I was bumming a bit, but looked at Craigslist again and a guy just posted a 2011 Yamaha Grizzly with only 186 miles on it. I got it for 4800$. Heck, its barely broke in and all the other people wanted 45-6000 for quads a lot older and more miles. On the way home I decided to take the surface streets as I knew the tires on the trailer were pretty old....yah, guess what...BLOW OUT! Right in f

  7. Here's a nice nugget found in Lost Basin near Meadview, AZ. Used a Minelab 5000 and some serious digging to get to it. Stayed at the Canyons End Motel. Nice Folks. Miner Friendly. Bob

  8. Having no feeling / numbness in one's feet totally sux..! I can still get away with wearing wading mocs at the sandy beach beaches but have no idea whether a Colorado River beach is dirt/sand or rock strewn river bank / whatever.. Point being is my days of getting away wearing low cuts detecting elsewhere are over; I need to be wearing ankle-support shoes or boots.. They make a huge difference.. You need to be wearing them too if you aren't already doing so.. Swamp

  16. Good ol' Wartsman's Sporehouse. It's like Victoria's Secret for men. If you go there more than three times a week you actually start growing hair on your palms. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pse-Kingfisher-Bow-Only-Right-Hand-45Lb/190998888?wmlspartner=wmtlabs&adid=22222222222042848297&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=e&wl1=o&wl2=c&wl3=10374129276&wl4=pla-4578572596852237&wl5=&wl6=&wl7=& wl10=Walmart&wl12=190998888_10000003281&wl14=pse kingfisher&veh=sem&msclkid=849cdaeca8ef1c1c10c

  17. Hokes books are pretty outdated but they are free for download... they are good for process and recovery but have a adherent link to refining. IMO it will get you further then standard refining processes. Knowing how to clean and seperate material for refining is a huge plus. Some books offer information that is better or more in depth than others. Safety is the most important part of the journey! It is NOT to be taken lightly. If the youtube videos are being watched try "sreetips". He has a good reputation. He also offers a multitude of videos that relate. Raw materials are not created equal

From my buddy Lanny, in Alberta - Old Santy Crashed His Sleigh One NightOn Christmas eve of ‘62,Well, things was lookin’ mighty blue.There’d been a crash, a wreck all rightA prairie mishap one dark night.But let me backtrack just a bitSo you can ponder all of it.One special night so long agoFound Santy Claus all set to go.Away up North one winter’s night,The sky was filled with stars all bright.And on that Eve, old Santy flewHis magic reindeer sleigh, it’s true!But later on a storm arose,The worst one ever I suppose,The wind commenced an awful blowThat filled the air with ice and snow.Ol

  21. You two mathematicians are not too great at word problems are you? If you re-read my post you will se that I did not say that 200 buckets would net me a half ounce. I said 200 buckets would "take care of my gold fever". Meaning I would probably be tuckered out half way there. FYI I ran about 350 buckets for the first half ounce and about the same for the second half ounce. So now you can multiply and divide that to your hearts content and advise me accordingly.

  23. Huh, I just discovered for the billionth time that America's interstate truck stops aren't quite as romantic as Waylon, Willie and the Boys might want us to think. Half an hour waiting for a shower, and the one I ended up with had what looked like a 14-pound pile of bear scat sitting on the drain. I'm no doc, but that bear needs to see his internist. Quickly. I got my five bucks back from the front counter, and will shower at Brat One's place on Sunday instead (or take a dive into the first open water I come across), and stink in the meantime. Ain't no way I'm playing Septic Boy the P

  24. Hey Gang. Just wanted to follow up on this thread and let you all know I trust your advice. I considered the ATX but went with the buy I was working on with Dave. He goes by Spud here on the forums. His detector was in near new condition. The things he included in the deal could not be discerned as not being new. Brand new battery. Backpack, bladder, spring coil for the battery, sling, detector cover. I'm happy with my purchase. I now have two Minelab detectors. My wife and I will make a good team. I bought a GM 1000 for my wife recently. Its nice and light. I'll be packing the GP 3000. Thanks

  25. New eyes would profit me more than a new tape. A new brain wouldn't do me any damage, either. As for vocabulary, I keep a pile of dictionaries within reach. Blame Webster, et al, for anything I post that isn't monosyllabic. English is a tough racket. My muddah tongue, once a word gets spelled, it can never be spelled any other way, ever. Put two or three Hebrew letters together randomly, and they have intrinsic meaning as a word, and could not ever possibly have another meaning, because the letters themselves hold meaning. Not so with English, which is by nature a confusing rats' ne

  26. If you ever figure out the proper spelling in English, let me know. I've seen Chanukah spelled at least six ways in prominent Anglo-Jewish publications over the years. Accurate transliteration from a Semitic language that predates ancient Rome and Greece by thousands of years, and with no English phonetic equivalents for several letters, just ain't possible. It's like trying to reproduce a classical painting using a paintgun at 50 paces. I'm very certain we'll collide a time or two once I'm back, Mike. You're a gentleman, and an interesting fellow with whom to converse, and a pleasu

  27. Be careful on the road, and pick up a new tape measure!! I actually like your being on the forum, you and a few others keep me on my toes and sometimes expand my vocabulary by looking up certain words posted so I really know what ya'll are saying, I can almost speak Yiddish now!

  28. Yes, Azdigger, heal quickly and be careful out there. I'm glad you made it home. I'm looking for a partner, also, preferably some young guy who's half pack mule, and who's happy digging holes to China and rolling boulders uphill when not carrying heavy loads up and down canyons.

  29. It was likely a Red Whip Snake/Red Racer/ or as Whylee said Coachwhip Racer lots of common names for "Masticophis flagelliformis" and they are super fast and can climb a desert tree like lightning to get a bird or lizard.

  30. It was more than likley a Coachwhip Racer. They come in a variety of colors. They get pretty long and they can really move when they want to. I have seen them anywhere from yellowish to purple in color.

  31. What really narrows it down is the length, as we dont have to many 5 to 6 foot snakes out here. must have been a subspecies of coachwhip. I wonder if it is possible that it could have adapted to red soils, and like mentioned above, it could have just shed its skin too......Sounds pretty cool regardless
