  1. I Will be making a pot of bacon and beans. Will also roast a pork loin.
  2. Teri and I will be there.
  3. For the folks that have never been to Gold Basin, I made up these signs to help get you to camp. Remember this is dry camping and you must bring all your needs. also there is no fire wood to be had in the area, so if we all bring a little we should have pleanty. Make sure a respond to the poll as that is how we will plan for enough chow on Sat evening. So far the long range weather is looking real good, highs in the mid 80's and lows mid 50's, we are still a month out so this could change.
  4. I will be making a pot of beans and bacon on Sat. Also, FrankC and I hold the Goldenrite claim up there and all will be welcome to hunt that claim during the Outing.
  5. Great idea, I can see how that would help a lot. Would you like a new pick to try it out on?
  6. So looking foward to this! Gold Basin outings are always a hoot! I will be cooking a big pot of bacon and beans.
  7. Got this last week with my CTX. Stock coil about 10'. I thought the history was pretty cool. http://www.allpar.com/cars/adopted/chalmers.html
  8. These are some of my finds from this summer. This spot is very trashy and has been well hunted over the years but it had never seen a CTX. Can't say enough good about this machine! I just got access to a new 10 acre chunk of private land that should keep me busy for a long time. Bunk
  9. After a long hot summer I am starting to get out again. Anyone ever found anything from Az Smelting Co? I have not heard of this Co. The second item looks to be a money clip. Tag found with Explorer se pro and the clip with Xterra 705. Bunk
  10. Congrats Teri! I knew you could do it! Bunk
  11. Coin hunting is a lot of fun if you have some "old" places to hunt. Prescott being a old town, it is very trashy in some my better spots, the Etrac/Explorer machines having the abilty to look through the trash is the only way to go. Just like the gold machines they do take a while to learn. I had the 70/705 pretty well figured out and found my first silver this last fall, 1903 dime and a 1924 quarter, and while I still love to hunt the nuggets, coins are a blast when I can't get down to the desert.

  12. Howdy All, I took a lot more interest in coin hunting this last summer with a Xterra 70and a new 705 and have made some pretty good finds. This winter, I moved up to a Explorer SE Pro as my coin and relic machine. Wow, what a difference! I only have 20-25 hours on this machine so far but I can tell I am really going to like this machine once I learn all the ins and outs. I have mostly been hunting parks and ball fields while I am in the training mode but I do have some really trashy spots that I want to drop back to once I figure it all out and get a smaller coil. So far, I have only been using the factory presets but do look forward to playing with some custom patterns especially the ability for this machine to “learn”. I am planning on a couple of beach trips this summer and I expect it to excel on the beach. These are my finds so far. Bunk
