  1. Good evening everyone, i hope your all doing good and staying safe. The boys and i made it out today for the first time this year and it was a fabulous finds day for sure!! We decided to hit a few spots that we have always drove past but never stopped. Sure glad we did today. Cameron found a huge silver spoon, a really cool lock, a Chinese coin, a gold plated shirt pin with a heart on it and a few other cool finds. My little guy found a sweet silver horse bridal concho, a few axe heads, a pick head, some sweet buttons and a complete late 1800s whiskey bottle. I ended up with some cool buttons,

  3. Ok this topic should of never been allowed because this is the Prospector's Lounge, this topic has nothing to do with prospecting...but we have allowed other "off topic" topics to be posted in this section just to give everyone something to comment on.....not to fight about, not for name calling, not for getting political, etc., etc. But as always most can't get along together, many here have to hit below the belt to get a reaction from their "adversary", but the time has come to move along to other discussions, hopefully most has developed "herd immunity" for their animosities and bicker

  4. Long story. Due to wife's long illness and hospitalization I have been unable to keep up with anything having to do with a computer I lost my total history and all the stuff associated with my former gmail account and phone number too and its unrecoverable. My wife is now improved and now has a full time family member caretaker. I am looking forward to catching up with what everybody has been doing since I went missing on about October 19 2020. We have survived the Covid-19 mess but I fear too hear that many of you have not ( Got the shots anyway). I will still share my former locati

  7. Hello everyone, i hope you're all doing well. The boys and i headed out again Saturday to go chase some gold and relics with my friend Larry. He didn't make it out last year with us at all due to his age and the Covid stuff so this was his first time out in over a year. He ended up getting a new Equinox 600 so we wanted to train him on it. Well Cameron my oldest son was running his GP Extreme chasing gold and his first target of the day was this pistol. Cant get any manufacturer info or any other markings off of it yet, but i think it is a Hopkins and Allen 32 caliber. Still looking into it. P

  10. I always wondered why guys that believe the virus was deliberate are also the ones who won't do anything to protect themselves from it. Seems like if I really believed the virus was an intentional attack on our country then I would be doing my darndest to fight it. Some folks just don't have the stomach for a fight though. Lots of people will stay in bed frozen with fear while an intruder steals their stuff. So it is predictable that some would refuse to fight a scary virus. Some folks are afraid of slimy monsters. Some are afraid of hairy monsters. Others are afraid of viruse

  11. Simply because a route is "designated" doesn't mean it's suited for travel on 4 ply hiway tires. I've been on designated routes in there, in my Dodge 4 x 4 where I'd never take the wife's Outback. People die often in the outdoors because they don't believe it can happen. It can...and does! All serious outdoors people often walk a thin line near tragedy, and the only thing that determines which way you go is often a seemingly innocent decision. Jim

  12. Well I guess I'm a smug prick. I'm in good company though. Everyone I know with more than a couple brain cells has been, or is planning to be vaccinated. I'll be in line for the booster next year if that's what it takes.

  22. Looks like a 32 rimfire. H&A Dictator. There were a bunch of different names on very similar pistols. It would be almost impossible to tell exactly what name it was marketed under. H&A was the progenitor of all of them though. At least that is what my gun expert buddy says. He is sitting here looking at the pictures. That's his opinion on it.

  24. I heard a report on the radio from a scientist that studies transmission. He said there is good evidence that most people do not transmit the virus. Only certain individuals. He points to the fact that many households will have one person infected but no one else in the household gets it. It is very common for this to happen. While other people infect everyone they get close to. They said most people do not transmit the virus to anyone. But people who do transmit it will infect am average of 28 people. He indicated that "super spreaders" were not so much events but individuals.

  25. Wow! This is quite a thread. It took a while to read the entire 11-pages, and digest all the opinions. I underwent heart bypass surgery on March 22, and I got my Johnson & Johnson vaccine shot this morning. I still feel like I got hit by a cement truck from the heart surgery, but I'm glad I was finally able to get the vaccine. At 64-years-old, I'm not afraid of it. Now, if I was a young woman with children in my future, I may have been more hesitant. As some have mentioned, when I was in the service and on my way to Asia, and Africa, I got hit with vaccination guns in both arms twice. All

  26. I found that if you are in a spot with lots of targets, even just iron trash when they are starting out, they love it. They dont get bored!! Then throw a few good targets in the mix, and my boys were hooked. My oldest son is 19 and my youngest is 12. My oldest got hooked when he was 9 and my youngest when he was 6. They love it!! Thanks Mitchel!

  27. Two years ago we went to the Big Island of Hawaii to see the eruption. At that time lava was entering the ocean and we took a boat tour. Here are some videos I filmed Two days after we took the tour I looked in a window of our hotel and saw one of the tour boats speeding back. It was strange because they should not have been getting back for another 2 hours. So I went to the pier and here is what I saw (the second part of the video). They were hit by a lateral (seam) explosion and the rock (the picture below) is one of the rocks that hit the

  28. A buddy of mine found a bunch of opalized bones. I tumbled a hunk of it just to see what it looks like. It's splintery and chunks fall out in places. But it is pretty cool looking material. It is very soft and tumbling makes it a bunch smaller. But I succeeded (sort of) at polishing a piece of it. I was told by a guy that most of this stuff is camel bones. He may have been clueless but his story convinced me. I am just assuming this piece is a camel bone too. Some sort of big herbivore for sure. You find a lot of big teeth that look like they could have come from a c

  30. You have got to balance recovery rate against amount if material moved. I used to work a claim where we recovered the gold using a trommel where we recirculated the water. The recovery rate was excellent, maybe 95%. We also drywashed the claim, and decided against dry washing because the recovery rate dropped to maybe 80%. Using the recirculating trommel with the better recovery rate was the worst decision we could have made to work the claim. We could have moved so much more material with the drywasher we had than using the recirculating trommel, and ended up with more gold rec

Nurse at Banner in Phoenix..She and many of her coworkers, Dr.s will NOT be taking that fools concoction and KNOW that this whole C19 thing is not what they are claiming...

Its still out there but I haven't been out in a long time when I do I find me a spot on side of the road and sweep up a bucket to pan at home, you would be surprised at what and how much you can find. The AZHWP frowns on it but *******. There are some good spots on 60.

  40. I received my first shot of Pfizer last Monday without any side effects at all. I go back on April 12th for my 2nd. My sister received her first today as well with no side effects so far. I just wonder what it is about our bodies immune system that determines what kind of response you'll get from a vaccine shot. Could genetics play a part? The answer is probably very complicated and it may be a long time before they come up with definitive answers.

  41. So things got dicey last night about midnight. Chills and rigors. I was shaking so bad I chipped a tooth. It lasted about 6 hours. I couldn't move without having a shaking shivering fit. I soaked the bed in the most awful smelling sweat imaginable. Im just getting up and around. It's over now and I feel good. Exhausted but good. Clay can share lollipops with infected children as "treatment" all he wants. If you actually believe this is a real way to prevent coronavirus in the masses then more power to you. I have a sexy antibody that can rip spike proteins out by the roots.

  42. I just copied and pasted directly from the article you provided. Prevention should always be preferred to treatment. In this case, simple mask wearing is an effective countermeasure against the spread of the virus. Since people don't want to wear masks forever, vaccination will help to ensure infection rates get down to an acceptable level. Personally, I never put much thought into treatments for the virus because I put the effort into prevention.

  43. Around 7pm last night I was outside cleaning a water tub when it suddenly got bright. So bright I thought a neighbor's car had found me in its headlights. I looked up in time to see a meteor exploding and breaking up, leaving a smoke cloud in its wake. I noted the time and the location. The meteor was a several degrees directly below the North Star when I observed it. It appeared to be traveling NE. Now for the skeptical part.. It wasn't clear out, but rather a thin scattered layer of Cirrus only. I opened my Doppler radar app and looked for any anomalies at the same instance as the

  44. Tough to tell from the photo, but the ground-window picts, around the edge of the grind where I would expect to see a thin layer of fusion crust I do not see anything resembling; it appears to be more of an oxidation coating than a fusion crust. Also tough to tell from the photo is if the interior is metal, or is it a semi-metallic luster like you'd get from filing hematite/magnetite? Regmaglypt size is a function of the size of the body upon which they form. I would expect reg's on a rock of this size to be respectively larger, and not as uniform in size/spacing.

  46. Did you get the J&J vaccine? I just got back from getting my second shot of Moderna and I feel fine. Time will tell, but the odds are in my favor. I posted the article above to point out that there are real instances of reinfection even after vaccination. The vaccines are only 90-95% effective, so roughly 5% could be at risk. 90% is far better than zero. It's not all about prevention of infection. Studies have also shown the vaccine greatly reduces the severity of symptoms which almost eliminates hospitalizations.

  47. If I’m to believe the numbers released by our government, we’re at 6% unemployment and ended up yearly GDP at -4.3%, which all things considered, would seem like great news. Appears that due to things like COVID relief bills, we’re nearly completely recovered. Imagine how much this will improve after everyone (at least who wants it) is fully vaccinated later this year as restrictions are lifted and people get out. When I got shot #1, sitting to leave, I thought about all we went through to get to that. I’m chalking this up as a victory and ready to move on.
