  1. Would you consider selling just the detector and upper shaft for $500.00??

      "Roger"-that,....My better-half informed me that I should sell my Z-7000 before getting another detector anyway.

      Wow, maybe you did have a curse clinging to ya????  I will admit that it took me well over a year of hard, and vigorous detecting down in southern Arizona (without success) to finally find my first nugget after I moved up here.  And it was mainly due to the help from a very successful nugget finder from this area by the name of Bob Danize (spelling???) who's forum name was: "montana".  He used to co-detect with Chris Gholson.  Gary

      I was curious, ..while you where living around this area then ( I live in Prescott Valley), did you ever have much luck finding any good gold spots in the northern Bradshaw's, around Lynx lake, or down around the Bumble Bee / Cleator areas???  I hunt mainly those areas, but most of my spots have either dried up lately and/ or there is so much new development now that the spots are now on private property.   So, I thought I'd see if you had any old spots you might want to share, considering that you may not ever be coming back over this way.  If not, no big deal,..just thought I'd ask.  Gary

  4. There is usually more than meets the eye when you come across spots like that, especially if you can move much of the overburden, and get up under the boulders.  Here is what I managed to unearth last month by lifting (if possible), undermining, and/or moving the boulders and the associated collections of rocks and dirt that backs up behind those boulders.  It's about 1-gram shy of a quarter oz.  Three of the smaller nuggets where in the same hole as the 2nd largest (a 1-gram +) nugget.  This methodology( although not many like utilizing it), keeps the O'l back and muscles in shape.  And the return on nuggets is much better than just swinging a detector.  Gary

  5. Hello Mike,

    I was talking to a guy today that I had just met with our conversation centering around fishing.  He had a nice aluminum bass boat in his driveway and a number of rods and reel within his garage.  When I asked him if he followed the bass tournament circuit, he said no, but would like to.  I thought of you and said that I knew of someone(you) who did that.  He gave me his card with his email address on it, and asked if you would email him and give him some ideas as to what he would have to do to join a club ?? or how he would become a part of the bass tournaments.  He is a Vietnam veteran and says that fishing is his way of clearing his head of all the bad memories.  His name is JIM MARTIN, email address is:  martin_jd1946@yahoo.com  His phone # is:  760-889-4521 He lives out in View point out of Prescott Valley.  If you can help him out with this THANKS.  Gary

      Thanks Mike,  I forgot to mention for you to put something like:  FISHING TOURNAMENT as a heading that would catch his eye and (I guess) not be some advertisement attempting to "Lure"-him-into-something.  Gary
