  1. A big specimen was found at the LSD recently and yes I have seen it. It is in orange stained Quartz with gold spider webbed all through it along with blobs of gold! Very water rounded as well which was interesting and it has a lot of gold in it! How this one has waited this long to be found is mindboggling, but I can't share a location. Guess everyone figured it was just too loud a target to be gold

  2. I have had 2 Tacoma's I used in my BAJA Exploring/mining days , also drove the Tundra crew cab as a support truck for a Baja racing group. They all preformed well in most aspects , the Tacoma,s had. . a weak rear bumper attachment and some underbody wiring that I had to reroute , the Tundra would haul a huge load of MC,s, Beer, Spare parts, wife's , kids without a problem. It could not go everywhere a Baja racing bike would go but it could keep them in sight or radio contact. My usual procession with the Tacoma's was tow them with a 26' Motorhome with a Samurai or Geo Tracker behind it. Park the MH, before it was stuck too bad , take the Tacoma towing the toad carrying a long length of Sampson double braided nylon to get the Tacoma Unstuck if necessary. There was not a road, cow trail, Baja race course , dry wash, dry lake, or beach reachable by my combination of rigs that I did not travel in my 15 years in BAJA.

  3. Guns don't kill people. People kill people, and they will do it with rocks if they have to. I'm just glad that car bombings haven't become the latest and greatest attention getter.

  4. These stories are priceless. It’s sad seeing all the valuable local knowledge of places past going away forever every time someone moves on. As I get older, I see more and more of my wiser friends passing away and really only realize then how much I gained from their knowledge and friendship and regrettably, how much I took them for granted. Thanks for sharing some of your own stories here you guys, they may seem just trivial, but they mean a lot and are really very interesting! Hope you continue!

  7. Don't marry a Brazilian. For them BBQ is what you would define as grilling--- and is more about the social activities around it... Now, to avoid arguments, I call it cooking out.

  8. Nice truck When you do your lift use adjustable coilovers on the front and if you go over 2 !/2 inches you'll have to get after market upper control arms-I have a 2nd gen TRD sport with 3 inch lift-Icon extended length coilovers in the front with Camburg uniball upper control arms and Fox 2.5 adjustable res shocks in the back with Icon add a leaf pack in the rear-The good thing about these trucks is theres lots of aftermarket stuff for them including bolt on horse power-I would like to get a super charger for mine it adds another 100 horses to it but is very pricey-Very dependable trucks-Ive had mine for 10 years and Ive only replaced a altenator so far Knock on wood-Never had it stuck either gets me from point A to point B with no problems But Im not Young and Dumb anymore either

  12. Aaagh, it's sooo hot! When are we going to be able to get out there to go detecting again?! In the meantime, here's a short video my brother made when I took him detecting earlier this summer for his first time- he should've been scraping dirt with my gold monster I loaned him but instead he was having too much fun taking movies and playing with a drone instead- oh well, we had a good time anyways!

  17. To add pictures, when writing scroll down. There is a paper clip and a box that says add files. Click it and you can attach pictures. I loved living out there. I lived in the Fairfax Annandale area. Out west now, been in AZ for many, many years after leaving Panama for good. I am down here in Sierra Vista/Fort Huachuca. We are a stones throw from Tombstone amd Bisbee (Copper Queen Mine). The history in this area is insane. Not too far from here is a little town called Sonoita, Vinyard country, and where they filmed a lot of Little House on the Prarie. Landon loved this area as did John Wayne. The Clanton ranch is still near by, and Murry springs clovis site (where they killed wolly mammoth) is also close by. Jesse James was here also. The great Geranimo war chief roamed this area as did Cochise (I live in Cochise County). Cochise County is is the 3rd largest gold producing County in AZ. Along with gold copper and silver as well. The Buffalo Solders were also stationed here, Fort Huachuis considered the home of the Buffalo Solders. Very rich history here, I guess like anywhere else, I often think of the old west. I love the desert, it has a beauty that most people will never understand.

  18. He hasn't sold "Gold Paydirt" in several years, he still has a forum, he moved from Colorado to Texas a few years ago, he posted back in April that he was going to be visiting Colorado for a little prospecting on the Arkansas river. https://c17a.forumotion.com/t328-still-in-texas-coming-back-to-buena-vista-to-gold-prospect-early-april-2021#1709

  19. I moved to Colorado Springs recently from the Phoenix Az area and planning to go to the local GPAA chapter meetings soon. Hope to start prospecting here. Left all my equipment with my buddy in Arizona 'tho. Been doing some research on Colorado placers. When you get GOLD FEVER, you never get over it.

  21. This watch is in AS NEW Condition, All Links-Original Presentation Box, Tags & Paperwork- $165.00 SHIPPED CONUS Insured Priority Mail. This watch is a true "Dive Instrument," waterproof tested to 1000-meters. The Muonionalusta meteorite was first discovered in Sweden, nearly 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in 1906 by two children who stumbled over a metal object stuck in the ground. Later determined to be a Four-Billion-year-old iron meteorite, it is thought to have fallen approximately 800,000 years ago. The very first Invicta Hydromax to feature a stunning meteorite dial. Each dial features a unique Widmanstatten pattern, that assures each watch is one-of-a-kind. The Hydromax skull logo lands at 12:00 while the date window sits at 3:00 for a balance of style and functionality. Comes with an exhibition case back to show off the Sieko NH35A automatic movement. Watch Details Movement Type: SII NH35A Automatic Case Size: 52mm. Case Thickness: 30mm. Case Material: Stainless Steel Bezel Type: Uni-directional Crystal Type: Flame Fusion Dial Material: Meteorite Crown Type: Screw Down Band Type: Bracelet Band Material: Stainless Steel Band Length: 8.25in. Band Width: 24mm. Band Clasp: Push Button Deployment Water Resistant: 1000-meters

  22. Good choice on a stick. I sure like the one I have. I like my AT Pros that I have also : ). Anyway, I have spent quite a few hours swinging my 800 and might be able to give you some input if you find you need it. I mentioned before that good targets will have a solid repeatable signal for the most part. Double blips have usually turned up pull tabs for me. For silver coins, I have had to listen real close when they were about 6-8" down. But the signal is distinct. Rings are another thing as I have found gold and silver rings kind of all over the map. Hope you enjoy the machine. Don't loose your charging cord. : ).

  27. That imagination came to life for me many years ago with a solid multi ouncer....needless to say I am to this day bummed about it. So these days I do have a pinpointer so when I come close to a target I suspect to be a nugget I slow down and dig it out carefully not like a lumberjack in a tree cutting contest.

  29. If it has metal flake or graphite it will show up with a multimeter check for conductivity. Put the multimeter into ohms mode and place the two probes firmly against the paint about 1 inch apart. If no reading or a reading greater than 10,000 ohms you are ok. Otherwise test the coil on a small test nugget. Have a good day, Chet
