  1. A Compass and topo maps is all I ever used. My brother sent me a GPS about 10 or 15 years ago. I used it once to go to the mail box and back home. I gave it away a month or so ago.
  2. Great video! Thanks, Shep! I once lost a dredge to one. I found most of the pieces all beat to heck. It was not a good day. RSJ
  3. It looks like it went well and everyone seemed to have a good time. It looks like you had a good time.
  4. Years ago we did find a few. Pretty slim pickins these days. Most run dry washers. It's hard to find any open ground that's not claimed, what with the price of gold now.
  5. I've been away from the forums for a long time. What a bunch of wonderful people here. God bless all of you and Johnno and his Dad. Jim
  6. I can't speak for others from New Mexico, but I've been up to neck in alligators for over a year. I just now whipped 'em.
  7. Jim Mc., I remember that trip well! Great fun with great folks and gold to boot. It don't get much better than that! I sure miss "Woody" and Jack. I learned a lot from them. It's so good to hear from you. Jim Goldmaster II = lots of nuggets!!!!!!!!!!
  8. An excellent detector! I was fortunate to get to use a prototype Goldmaster II early on in the Dale district by 29 Palms, Ca. Jimmy Sierra had given one to my old friend "Woody" Woodworth to test. They didn't have the ID iron meter working yet. Woody and I had been using the original Gold Bugs and Minelab GT16000. That Goldmaster II sure is hot on small gold. You'll do well with it!
  9. Happy Birthday John B. And, many more!
  10. Skip, Teddy Bear and you are in my prayers. RSJ
  11. That's a great set up you have there! Best of luck to you Allen!
  12. Thanks Garimpo! How inspiring! There sure are a lot of people that need to watch this video. What great lessons to be learned! Best wishes! RSJ
  13. Garimpo, thanks for reminding me. Best wishes! RSJ
  14. Neat story, Terry! Thanks for sharing. Best of luck to you. RSJ
  15. All the small shooter coils are double D. RSJ
  16. There is no such thing as a Mono coil for a VLF detector such as the White's Goldmasters. There are concentric and double D coils only. A mono coil is only used on the antique BFO and the pulse induction detectors. All the early Goldmaster coils were concentric. The original Jimmy Sierra Gold Max coil was just a larger concentric coil. The newer Black Sierra Gold max coil is double D. All the coils work ok in most cases. The double D handles the more mineralized ground better. All coils that fit the Goldmaster II, GMvSat, GM3, GM4, GMT, and GMZ are interchangeable. RSJ
  17. I'm sure sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He bought a metal detector from me when I had a shop in Albuquerque many years ago. He also was partners with a friend of mine on several claims several years ago near White Oaks, NM. My sister lives near Greeley, Co. and I have visited the Museum and seen the boulder with gold in it. The last time I spoke to him was several years ago when he lived in Del Norte, Co. and was farming potatoes. I met him several times over the years and it was allways fascinating listening to his stories. R.I.P. Bob! RSJ
  18. I don't know who has used one yet. There has been some confusion about them. It seems Fisher released a first version to Cabelas for $499.99. Link:http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?id=0075670631026a&type=product&cmCat=SEARCH_all&returnPage=search-results1.jsp&Ntk=Products&QueryText=GOLD+BUG&sort=all&Go.y=9&N=0&Nty=1&hasJS=true&_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&Go.x=19&_DARGS=%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fcommon%2Fsearch%2Fsearch-box.jsp.form23 A second version (GOLD BUG SPECIAL EDITION) is supposed to go to the dealers sometime soon @$549, and then later a third version called the (GOLD BUG PRO) will be available for $699. I called the factory, but they never returned my call. Best wishes! RSJ
  19. I ordered one. Looking forward to reading it. Rattlesnake Jim
  20. I think Charlene is on the Alaska Gold Forum. That was too good! Thanks!
