    That was EXACTLY what I was saying when he bit me. I was trying to get him in that bottle and I said, "Get in there you rascal. I'm going to copper plate you! OUCH! THE F@<&ER BIT ME!!!!" My buddy who was in the Land Cruiser watching the drama unfold was laughing his hams off when I got bit and said the same thing you did. Right away I kinda figured I had it coming. The last thought that went through my mind was to remind myself "These things are not poisonous". A nanosecond later I had been bit. The joke was on me because it didn't really matter if a bug is poisonous or not with fangs like that. What mattered was that he understood every word I said and knew enough about electrolysis to know that he didn't want to become part of the circuit. The problem nowdays isn't that the bugs are more poisonous. It is the educated ones get so uppity and bite if you force them to do something they don't want to do.

    It has been a couple days now and it is like a little paper cut. Kinda painful and slow to heal. It definitely went all the way through the skin and into the flesh. I didn't do anything to it and I have been in the desert all night for three nights. I constantly have dirty hands and probably don't wash them enough so that has a lot to do with how this is healing. Just about like any other good nick in your dirty palm skin that got a strong acid in it and was neglected for a couple days. The upside is that I am now immune to every disease I will never have. And I don't have to drink vinegar or use coconut oil to keep my bone spurs from causing pine lumber to burst into flames when I see an outcrop carved into a manicured poodle by skilled Spanish masons that never existed. Plus I now have access to a special Nuggetshooter forum exclusively for vinegaroon bite victims. Only I can see it on my main page and no one but me can comment. It's a huge party over there and we are discussing specific locations of nugget patches and sharing maps of the Glorieta strewn field as well as photos of half naked prospector girls and stuff. It's a hoot man!

    Yooperite is a local term they use for these. The actual mineral that fluoreses is called sodalite. These were deposited by glaciers that came down from Canada.

    Another fun outing finding tiny gold. My sons take is the upper left, the rock at the top has gold in it and it made the Gold Monster really pop, the proverbial "whaa boo pop" (however Bill says it lol). I'm looking forward to him cleaning it up to see how much gold is actually in there. I am the king of finding shotgun pellets!

    Detected after work last night.. It rained right before dark and cooled things off some but kicked the humidity way up.. I was pouring sweat like the monsoons and basically put sweat lines on my new hat. It was amazing all the wildlife and critters I was seeing.. I saw 2 different deer, some strange night bird that looked like a small owl and a sparrow made a new species. Lots of crickets covering the ground.. At least 10 black widows and more other random spiders. I detected for 4 hours total and found 5 pieces during the night. Slept extremely well and bailed before the heat set in.

    I have not been stung by this type of bug, but I believe that they are also called a "whip tail scorpion". I found one a number of years ago down in Tucson, and at that time wasn't exactly sure what it was so I contacted the Arizona Desert Museum down there about it, and when they heard that I had one they where all excited and wanted to know if I would donate it to them, as they didn't have one, and was having trouble finding one for their live-display. So I gave it to them. I know that they prefer dark, damp, cool places to reside, and can be found outside around porch lights while they catch bugs. Gary

    Dang Bob thats rough. We dont have those here but we do have a ton of wind scorpions and regular scorpions. Those dang wind scorpions are so aggressive, we cant lay on the shop floors around here without a creeper. When i was younger and working on my dads race car in our shop, we constantly had to have a look out. You could see them coming from across the shop floor while you were laying on it then you had to haul butt out from underneath the car before it got to you. The guys on the floor would always scream like a little kid, while the look out guys were laughing their butts off. Basically it came down to rock, paper, scissors or drawing straws to see who got to hang out under the car if we were working on it at night. My little brother would always scream the loudest and come out with the most bumps and scratches from banging his head trying to shag out of there as fast as he could. Oh man, good times.
