  1. I only met RD one time, right after I got my first detector. A hell of a guy! He really helped me understand detecting when I first started out. I still have the test nugget he gave me and think of him when ever I throw it down. Bunk
  2. I got a small pack from Bill a few years ago that is perfect. Two compartments, bottom for battery and top just right for a couple bottels of water. It works much better for me than the stock harness. Bunk
  3. Hey Kim, Sorry, no water out that way. I am hoping the dry weather holds until the first of the year so I can get some drywashing in. Bunk
  4. Wow, that was quite a bunch of nuggets! Bunk
  5. I hate snow! I did not even like playing in it when I was a kid. Allen, Hope I get to meet up with you while you are down this way this winter! Bunk
  6. Happy Birth Day, Ron and Del! Bunk
  7. Hey Victor, If your intent is to go hiking and find a pretty rock once in a while, the Superstitions, will work grate for you but if you really want to find some gold, you will have to branch out. There are clubs that have good gold claims, that don't cost a lot to join and most of the forums here in AZ host outings a few times a year. You can learn a lot from hanging out with like minded people. There are several forms of prospecting and you will have to find the one thats right for you. Welcome to this forum and ask lots of questions! Bunk
  8. Sorry, forgot the picture...
  9. When I made up my mind that I was going to find a nugget with a detector, it took me about two months. I had been prospecting for years but not with a detector. I had a pretty good gold machine years back but I never learned how to use it. My first year of detecting, I found thirty nuggets but I had that coil to the ground every chance I got. Wish I had that kind of time these days. The little one was my first. Bunk
  10. Hey Unc, Where do you catch the scenic route coming in from the south? Bunk
  11. Patrick, I camp at decision corner all the time with my rig. Just watch out for tire hazards and you will be fine. I take it real easy on Stanton Rd, it takes me about 30 min but it is a real nice drive. When are you going? Bunk
  12. Harry, I would start by posting them on all the forums. I would think you would get the best price that way. Bunk
  13. Grandpa John, you do get results! You put in the time and have learned your machine real well, congrats! Here are my finds and those of a friend that stoped by for some show and tell. Over a pound of nuggets! Bunk
  14. John, I also want to add a big THANK YOU!! This would not have come together with out you! Bunk
  15. Pics are coming! Teri will help me get them re-sized in the next couple of days, I have not learned to do that yet. Bunk
  16. Hey Bill, you were right, it ain't easy hosting a big outing. Sure glad you got to hunt down a couple nuggets this year. I know I can speak for Frank also, and it was our pleasure to host the Gold Basin outing this year!! WOW, Where do I start! A good time was had by all and lots of nuggets were found, at least 20 that I know of including a few REAL nice ones. Meteorites too, I found my second, 116 grams! The weather was a little windy but we did have few real nice days, calm and warm temps. As allways, folks jumped in and helped out when and where needed. THANKS guys and gals!! The coin hunt was a success although we did make some mistakes everyone went away happy. This was the first time Frank and I have ram rodded a big outing and we both learned a lot. The #1 prize, an X terra30, donated by Rob's Detector Sales, was won, by Mike C, congrats Mike! I really want to thank all that donated prizes and effort to make this a really great outing!! I will add more and pics later, I need to get the Mothership and the Great Pumpkin cleaned up and ready for the next adventure. Also, we had one winner of one of Uncle Rons gold maps that did not get on the list to be sent this map, if it was you, send me a PM and we will get that out to you. Thanks a bunch to all that joined in on this adventure, we will do this again! One more thing, you don't have to have a bunch of prizes and a huge outing to have ave good time in the desert and if Frank and could put this together, anyone can, Post an outing today! Bunk
  17. Hey Bill, The guy you watched, he was melting the stuff? I saw a black sand smelt demo years ago, I wish I would have paid more atention. Are there places in general, that melting blacksand pays? Bunk
  18. I will have a sign-in/liability release that needs to be signed by ALL that are in on the coin hunt. Bunk
  19. I will have a sign-in/liability release that needs to be signed by ALL that are in on the coin hunt. Bunk
  20. Mike, Most targets will not be buried, just scattered real well. As far as rules, common sense and fair play should be the only rules we need. I will have a libilaty release that will need to signed by all in on the hunt. Bunk
  21. Glad you both can make it! Look foward to meeting you both. Bunk
  22. OK, We have 140 prizes so far, silver coins, gold nuggets, meteorites, and other real cool stuff! Bring your metal detector and come out and win some of these prizes. A great week end will be had by all! Bunk
