  1. Where are you at adam????,.... I like the looks of that wash!!! Looks like you could just crawl along on hands and knees with a pair of tweezers and pluck those little buggers right out.
  2. Well, ...if you didn't get a chance to make it down into the Arizona desert today, you really missed out on a Beautiful day to be out. When I left Prescott Valley this morning a bit after 7 am it was raining pretty good, and the clouds hung real low down into the Bradshaws. It rained on me on and off on my way down toward Phoenix, and I was kind of wishing that I had brought a rain coat. But by the time I got into the lower desert area the rain was just a slight mist,....just perfect for detecting. It was cool, damp from the early morning rain, overcast and cloudy the entire day, and probably
  3. When it comes to moving overburden, thus exposing nuggets that have been hidden (many out of reach) for for so many years................."BRING-IT-ON ! ! !"
  4. Well Luke, Looks like ya had a very good day there,....Gold-wise. Looks like those nuggets have traveled a bit. I "almost" headed down that same direction today as well, as I haven't been down there since before all the monsoon rains this year. I needed to get some gas from Costco, so I chose to hit a wash around the Lynx Lake area to see what changes had developed over the last couple of years. The last time I was in this wash I had found this (pictured) one-sole-nugget, and have yet to find anything since,...."Drats" ---I hate when that happens !!! ..........And nothing changed for m
  5. I just noticed that you are in South Carolina Au Seeker,... Are you being affected by all that flooding over there??? Looks like one big Mess to me. I don't know how anyone continues having to deal with flooding situations like that; and it seams like it just gets worse every few years or so. Maybe the saying in the movie JAWS: "We-need-a-Bigger-Boat" applies over there in that country??? At any rate Take Care... Gary
  6. Well ya know Bill,....."give her an inch and off she will go with Bruno, and,.... "your" buggy????? She's got da-fevor,..and it hasn't even cooled off down there in the desert yet ..no looking back now.
  7. While detecting in an exposed bedrock section (while working my way upstream) in a wash today, I noticed something "juicy." It was a naturally-formed riffle that had formed in the exposed granite bedrock up about 5 ft from me. In my mind I thought: That would be an ideal spot for a nugget to drop and be sucked up under the ridge of that riffle. The riffle was probably only about 5" wide, but ideally, it was positioned in the lowest part of the wash. Although I continued detecting, slowly working my way up to the riffle, my "minds-eye" could see that nugget there. I could hardly cont
  8. Nice gold Luke,.....I'll bet it's still HOT down there in the desert though; at least too hot for me right now. Gary
  9. Man, ...are you guys wearing insulated-"frosted" suites to get thru that heat down there?????? I thought I saw a refrigerator compressor sitting on the ground close-to your dry washer, but I didn't see any hook-up hoses. You could probably also us one of those space suites like Michael J. Fox wore in "Back To The Future" Nice looking rough gold there. Gary
  10. Better not do that Andyy,...........The gold is a-l-l-l- gone,....At least "that's the Rumor
  11. You guys missed it,....it all happened yesterday,....fall hit yesterday. Now it's back to the cursed heat for a month or two...
  12. Hey Luke,..... I didn't need the 7000 on this wash, as the bedrock is right there at the surface, so I used my f-a-v-o-i-t-e. Thus far I have found 3-different-inside bends that have had a nugget-or-two,........all of the straight stretches so far have been barren. Strange????? Gary
  13. Boy, you talk about a beautiful (weather-wise) day to be out,...this one was it!! It was clouded and overcast and there was a mist-like rain that greeted me when I opened my front door this morning around 7 am. The air was coooooool, and I could hardly wait to get out. When I finally got into this new wash around 8:30 it began to sprinkle a bit heavier,.....man it felt GREAT!!!! The rest of the day (up till about noon when my battery died ) had on-and-off rains come in that where "just-Right"---not too much to drench you, and the humidity was low. I was detecting toward upstream whe
  14. Well guys, the gold is all gone up here on the Lynx,...........only managed to snag two little ones on a Very-Hot-Day up here Found this new wash,..(forgot my camera) with some fairly good bedrock. I'm officially ready for Fall and Winter; least it Not be late. Gary
  15. The BIG QUESTION is: Just "How Much" (Total) have you spent on all those Other Detector's ( that you have found NO GOLD WITH) thus far?????????????????? In choosing Gold Detectors "two wrongs don't make a RIGHT",,....What-the-Haaaaayyyy".....three wrongs, four wrongs, five wrongs, etc., etc.,etc. DON'T MAKE FOR-A -"RIGHT DECISION!!!!!"""""" Also, Just how much is "Too-Much" for you to spend on a Good-Gold -Detector????????????? I'll bet that if you tally-up that Total cost that you have already spent on sub-grade, worthless (for Gold Detecting) detectors you will find that you could
  16. Au Seeker,....."SORRY", my mistake,......It was a 1923 S MERCURY DIME;.... "Not" a Barber Dime.............Had to go back and look at my Ebay account ..........Glad ya brought it to my attention. Gary
  18. "BUMMER !!!".... That was the low-end of the possibility-value,..it just went UP from there for an "S" mint mark.
  19. Hey Bill,...."Cool" find..... Based on what I can see, that is a Barber Quarter, and based on my 2016 US Coin Digest, "IF" it is a 1914 "S" it has a value of around $139.00;... otherwise it's worth around $8.75 (Depending on Condition of course). About 5-or-so years ago I detected a 1927 D Barber Dime out in one of the washes around LSD;.didn't find any gold, just that dime..........I sold it a month ago on Ebay and got $86.00 from a collector;............YAHOO!!! Gary
  21. Went out to a wash today that I had not visited for at least two or three years,.. or so. As I recall back when I had been down the wash it was heavily covered with overburden at least a couple of feet deep. At that time there were a few (very few) spots of exposed bedrock at the surface of the wash, but nothing really worth (my time) getting excited about. So, I didn't spend much time there, and found nothing (back then). It was a whole different story today, as we had had some very good monsoon rains this year. I found that the monsoon rains, along with their torrential flooding had lit
  22. Just "where" do you get-Off trying to send a message to "Anyone" ( for that matter) about something that "you "obviously are Not-In-Control-Of yourself?????!!!!! Your message to warn "Others" is not only "Worthless", but is a very Poor Excuse for trying to "save" others from something that you know absolutely nothing about... In computer language, "GARBAGE-IN-EQUALS GARBAGE-OUT!!!" You are Obviously Not an authority on this subject, so who in their right mind would even consider listen to you?????????? AND, after reading all of the positive, up building , supportive-comments give to you on t
  23. Welcome to the forum. I used to belong to the desert gold diggers when I lived down in Tucson before moving back up here in 2005. I hunted a lot down in the Greaterville area. Never had much luck down there until I moved back to my home town of Prescott. I always enjoyed the gold diggers gold raffles though. Gary
  24. Well that's a Hell-of-a-way to start your "Very-First-post" on this forum, after obviously-learking on it (on and off) for 5-years and not even saying a word in the interum???? I would think that at some time during that 5 year period you might have taken the initiative to maybe???... asking for help; request some assistance; or try to "communicate" with any number of us on this forum who have had, and still- continue-to-have Success in our searce for Gold. If you had, and if you would have taken the advice-of and utilized all the "very-valuable" recommendations from others (and maybe myself)
