  2. 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

  3. I know it’s all personal preference, but I love the telescoping rod I got from England for my Nox. It makes it really portable and very light, Fits in my backpack without any issues. Also put a shoulder strap with plastic buckles on it so I can carry it when I’m hiking. By Carnaval I thought you meant like the Quartzsite shows or somewhere like that, but you have a good point - we have a field in town that has (had) a carnival every year and I’ve never seen anyone over there. I’m gonna have to go there too.

  4. 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.

See people laying around d up there a lot and ya never know when they drop change out of a pocket. Can't wait for the carnival to come to town so I can hit it afterwards. I think I am going g to be plenty happy with this thing. Thanks for the input. D

  10. Congratulations! It takes a little getting use to. But what an awesome unit! I need to get out there and swing mine more often. Im still learning it and im impressed! The sensitivity is amazing with the 6" coil. Great for trashy areas and bedrock crack shooting. I definitely get fooled by some sweet sounding hot rocks... I still need to figure that part out.

  11. Nothing going on down here. Every prospector I talk to is afraid to go out any more. They say the police are every where, this being the environment police (IBAMA)Every road leading out of this town has to go through a police check point, everybody is scared of losing their equipment. For months now I don't have any item in my truck that could be associated with prospecting. Talked to one of the locals yesterday that is no longer in this state. He and many of the other locals that used to be here are around 2,000 miles North of here. For years very few police there but now that's changing. Been thinking about the GPX6000 since I know where 100's of old "worked out" scrapes are.

  14. 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.

  15. 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. : ).

  16. Actually you are wrong. It was Ivanka Trump. She was speaking to the millions of people who lost their jobs because of the pandemic. She looks a lot like Obama so I can understand where you might be confused. But it was definitely Ivanka Trump that said this. When Obama suggested auto workers learn coding it was good advice. Coal miners should learn to code today for the exact same reason. Maybe gold miners too huh? Maybe Trump should develop a plan to train displaced workers like Obama did. I would support a plan like that. He could use royalties from extraction on public lands to pay for it.
