  1. Haven’t posted in a while. I enjoy seeing everyone’s gold finds so here is some pics. I will do a SG on this one at some point. I’m pretty good at guessing weight especially the half - 5 grammers. I was way off on this one. Found in a small wash about 3’ on the bank just out of the wash. 18” deep approximately. Probably knocked off 5 grams of caliche. I keep the scale at work so no pre weight taken. Brownie

  2. I just gave birth to a big chunk of hernia mesh. I have had a wad of that stuff that got displaced and formed a big knot about ten years ago. This deer season it started giving me grief after packing my deer out. Mighty uncomfortable. I got imaging and it showed a big wad in the fold of my leg that looked just like the brow tine on that big buck. About an inch in diameter and a couple inches long. The point was just about in my scrotum and the butt end was over my femoral artery and vein. No surgeon would touch it. It got worse as the weeks went by and I was frantic. My only op

  3. Well, I installed Doc's(Doc's Detecting Supply) New Arm Cuff Cover on my detector today and took it out for a spin in one of the gold areas here in Arizona. I will say that it fits very snugly, is made of strong-durable material, with an adjustable arm strap, and is an added improvement (comfort-wise) to the worn-out cover that I was using. I don't know if any of you out there are like me, but I bought my Minelab GP-3000 new in 2004 and have never replaced the cover(as my photo's reflect). I have had to sew it up a couple of times over the years just to keep it from coming off.

  4. Detecting For Nuggets The Hard WayArmed with my detector one balmy, late-summer weekend, I set off to find a nugget or two.As a nugget shooter, I sometimes stupidly fail to appreciate the difficulties associated with hunting nuggets or the low level of compensation that might be the reward.So, I set off to work a spot where a tiny creek intersected a famous, gold-producing river.The Oldtimers had worked the area heavily; their hand-stacks of cobbles and boulders lay piled on a bench of highly fractured, black slate bedrock. However, I realized that moving all of those boulders would require fa

  5. Bob your funniest and toughest man i have heard of, that story is amazing your right interesting is slightly an understatement. Thanks for sharing, it does not get more real or human than this thread.

  6. Interesting may be an understatement. The surgeon is a brother from Jamaica. A young squirt about my son's age. He has been cutting for only about 6 years. He took a shitload of photos and has them on his phone. So I have some photos of the incision with the meshoma in situ and as he was cutting it out. Also a glamor shot of it sitting on a plate. Ugly rascal. But my baby nevertheless. I invited him to go fishing with me on the condition he gut the fish. He jumped at the chance and told me he would love to. Then my son suggested we use my little giblet for catfish bait.

  8. Great surgeons in New Mexico. IMHO I got one of the best there is. He did a hell of a good job. FYI Most private practice surgeons wont touch a meshoma no matter what state they practice in. Think about it. Why would a surgeon take a job someone else screwed up? They would be risking a lot of business on a job that may very well end badly. There are a very few surgeons who have ever done it. The mesh attaches to organs and creates a mess that can involve lots of stuff down there. So most of these procedures are experimental and done in big universities that are developing

  14. Related, I came across this as the anniversary of Sikhote Alin just passed. That fall created over 100 craters and I think it's cool that they worked backwards to figure out how the initial mass broke up.
