  1. That would be Mike, he's around..but I'm here every day with my head on a swivel, but I usually let them go at it a bit to see if it they'll work it out or if it will truly get out of hand and feelings get hurt before I blow the timeout whistle.
  2. Chris, There is gold in and around Aiken, albeit a little fine gold in the local streams, you'll find more northward, northwestward and northeastward from there, the closer you get to North Carolina and the better the gold, also there gold in north Georgia, you most likely will not find much if any detectable gold but you may get lucky since the gold detectors now-a-days can detect much smaller gold. Here are some images of the southern gold belts, I had more of these maps on my old computer but it died and I haven't tried to retrieve any of the images yet, and I can't find some of the ones now on the internet that I had on the old computer, if I find any more I'll post them.

  3. Don do you have annual vehicle inspections down there?
  4. Very Nice! Thanks for posting!
  5. A reverse on a airplane, how cool is that, that would make parking it a lot easier, especially in a crowded airspace!!
  6. To properly ID the cartridge you would need more exact measurements, you would need a caliper to determine the caliber, also need a measurement of the case and overall length. The "US" head stamp is from the "United States Cartridge Company". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_headstamps#US_arsenals https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Cartridge_Company
  7. Nice job Dave! But I don't see how those hydraulic brakes are going to work if you're headed for a cliff face...should of went with air brakes!!
  8. Happy birthday Patrick, I hope you have a great day!
  9. See my post above I have posted the link for ordering the book but for some reason it keeps showing up right before Goldseeker's most recent update post. I have tried several times to post it but there seems to be a glitch keeping it from being the last reply!! Edit: This post is doing the same thing, it's like the forum is going backwards in time instead of forwards!!! AGGGGGGHH!! 2nd Edit: This is very weird, now both of my posts are where they should be in the posting order!!
  10. As Mike pointed out the link to pre-order is in another topic, hopefully Goldseeker will see this and start posting the link in his posts if he wants to get more pre-orders!! Here's the link to his website for pre-ordering his book http://goldseekerbooks.com/Home/tabid/6729/Default.aspx
  11. I wouldn't worry about you posting too frequently, it's the weekend and most are out doing weekend stuff and as such most forums are slow on the weekends!
  12. Welcome to the forum Randy! I moved your topic to a more appropriate forum. Have you had the "silver" nugget tested to be sure it's silver? I ask that for 2 reasons, silver nuggets are usually tarnished when found, your's looks to have a bit of white oxidation instead, also for the size it is it would weight more than 50 grams, IMHO. From seeing the white oxidation, the weight and also it appears to have been melted into the shape it is I'm thinking it's either melted aluminum or possibly Babbitt, which is an old time bearing material which was melted and poured into old machinery bearing housings. To show what I mean about silver being found tarnished here a photo of a chunk of almost solid silver assayed at 96% pure.
  13. I'm going to put your video directly into this topic and also a link to your gofundme as well. I did find a it a bit hard to hear everything you were saying even with my volume turned up all the way, but what I was able to hear and reading your gofundme page I see your daughter is in remission, my thoughts and prayers are going out that it remains that way!! https://www.gofundme.com/f/69o42zk
  14. Odin, First and foremost you need to read our forum rules, the number 1 rule is that personal attacks and name calling for whatever reason are not tolerated, and as such I have hidden your recent posts and replies to them in this topic, I know you don't like others members sorta making fun of your claims of your sandstone "meteorite"....but that's just some members here having fun after voicing their opinions which you don't agree with and not personal attacks towards you, no one called you any names or attacked you personally that I have seen, only rejected your claims on what you think it is, if I missed any name calling or personal attacks towards you please let me know where those posts are. When it comes to people posting possible meteorites here in this forum they shouldn't wear their heart on their sleeve because unless it's a type of meteorite known to our members they will usually require the posters to prove without a doubt it is what they claim it to be and unfortunately that usually means that it needs to be certified. In the past year or so we did have one member post what he thought was an iron meteorite and some thought it might actually be one, many others weren't convinced, the member went through all the steps and processes to get it looked at by experts/scientists qualified to confirm or deny if it was or not and if it was a meteorite being able to give it certification, it turn out to really be a iron meteorite and a rather large one at that, so sometimes that's what it takes to convince others of what you have!! I know you have posted "your" facts on what you have but that is either not agreed on or understood by other members, so we will leave that subject at that. I can restore your posts if you agree for me to slightly edit them to remove the general personal attacks and name calling, or I can leave them hidden. I know regular members here can only edit their posts for a very short time after posting, so I offer you my assistance in editing them if you so choose and agree with me doing so, supporting members can edit at any time.
  15. I'm sorta late on what been posted while I was asleep last night and then at work today....BUT....I don't think this topic would be considered outright political...but getting close....I do agree with Bob that his patriotism and his contribution to his country/community was questioned by Mac (I highlighted in red the remarks in the quote above) and that is indeed a personal attack albeit in the guise of being on topic!! I give kodos to Bob for holding his tongue in light of those remarks! That being said...Mac take this as a warning to refrain from such remarks towards other members in the future no matter how veiled or outright you word it, it will not bode well if you do! I know that you and Bob don't feel all warm and fuzzy about each other...but I warn anyone here that your personal feelings towards another member/s need to be kept to yourself, I also don't condone and wouldn't advise expressing those feelings even VIA a PM, if anyone chooses to do so VIA a PM and the recipient reports that to me I will take the appropriate action. That all being said, if you don't care for another member's opinions, best to not respond at all when you don't like someone and don't respect their right to their opinion, they have the right to their opinions and it will not be tolerated to attack them for their opinion, discussing your opinion compared to their's is allowed....BUT thread lightly because differences in opinion get out of hand easily and more so when not expressed face to face, body language, facial expressions, etc. can not be read/observed VIA written text to get the full meaning of what someone is truly trying to say!!
  16. Nice find Tom! I was able to remove the trommel video.
  17. I added my sponsorship for your ride.
  18. It's allowed, I'm going to move this topic to the Prospector's Lounge, it will get more attention there,
  19. Not sure about the Australia variety.. but here in the SE after a few beers and just the right seasonings they taste like tiny chickens.
  20. One of our fellow prospecting members..JasonG... had a bunch of his prospecting gear, tools and other items stolen. If anyone notices any specious persons selling any prospecting gear, etc., please contact Jason or the Mohave county Sheriff dept, please! Here's is a link to his post on Steves H.'s forum, which would most likely be the best place to try and contact him if you notice anything that may help him track down the thieves. https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/topic/10779-theft/ "Posted Tuesday at 01:57 PM Sorry for the off topic post, I just wanted to get this out there quickly and please delete if this shouldn't be here. I had a ton of stuff stolen in Arizona, not sure what exactly yet as I have to drive down now to find out. They abandoned my RV on the road since I sabotaged the wheels to prevent theft (after they dragged it 1000ft ruining my axles and drums), but took everything inside, and took a 40ft Conex worth of tools and gold prospecting equipment. So much stuff I'm not even sure what all was in it until I can do a full inventory. So, if anyone sees someone in NW Arizona trying to offload a bunch of drywashers, crusher stuff, cleanup stuff, sluices, especially if they seem like tweakers, please let me know. Also, a Yamaha Grizzly ATV, green, 400cc. Tons of tools, most the battery powered stuff was Makita. Had a Troy Bilt gold vac, a smaller keene drywasher (is it the 141?), a bigger Keene drywasher (black), a puffer Keene drywasher. I'm forgetting a ton of stuff but, you get the idea, if some tweaker is going around trying to sell gold prospecting stuff for cheap to people, get a name if you can. Mohave county Sheriff is out there now, if anyone has heard anything at all, please let the sheriff know. Had all my detectors with me in Wyoming so none of them were stolen. If anyone hears anything, anyone mentioning anything about who did this, please let me or the sheriff know. The gates and the chain were cut, plus cut through 4 large boron carbide shackles. they had tools and it was planned. It wasn't in a place that someone randomly would have found, I suspect they are local and/or prospectors at this time. It sounds like some of my con buckets were stolen, which would look like dirt bucket to someone who didn't know it might be valuable so if they weren't prospectors, they must be familiar with it to take buckets of dirt. It may have happened a few weeks ago, I just now got someone track me down from some papers they found in my abandoned trailer and let me know about it sitting there in the middle of the road. It's been 110 or hotter out there so there weren't many prospectors around but one said he thought he saw my trailer moved at least a few weeks ago. If anyone has info leading to an arrest with at least some of my items found so I know it was them, I will give you $1000 cash. We can work it out anonymously if preferred. Thanks"
  21. I don't know all that much about rocks, just enough to get it wrong trying to ID them, but maybe it could be specular hematite.
  22. Welcome to the forum and "Gold Fever" ReedKidd! I have created a new topic for your post and moved it to the new topic...Titled "New Member from Pennsylvania", so you will get more attention, by posting in someone else's topic you may not have gotten welcomes of your own and advice from other members here. From my own research over the years for gold in the eastern states, most if not all gold in Pennsylvania is glacial gold, meaning it was deposited by glaciers during the ice age, most likely you will only find a few specs here and there, but it's possible to find a picker/flake or two or a small nugget if you get lucky. Research "glacial moraine" maps for Pennsylvania, glacial moraine is the deposits pushed down from Canada by the glaciers and left after the glaciers receded, any gold will be in these areas, once you find some glacial moraine deposits work the streams in that area, try and get down to some solid bedrock, on top of very large rocks/boulders or heavy clay deposits which will stop any gold from migrating down any further through the over burden, also thoroughly clean out any material in any cracks and crevices you find in any bedrock and hopefully you will have some luck! Also the piece of quartz you posted is unlikely to have any gold in it....UNLESS...it was also brought down from Canada by the glaciers and even then it would be a rare find.
  23. Hmmm, who would of thought!! I bet it goes much higher than these guys, they're just at the bottom of a much higher ladder!
  24. I know you were and there's seems to be an interest in this subject for some members who has responded, so keep posting about your BMX riding...but let's keep meteorite subject matter and other subject matter in their proper forum sections.
