  1. Dang, Shep. Here's to a quick and uneventful surgery followed by a shirt and full recovery. Just make sure they don't start putting animal parts in you. Unless they give you the ability sniff out gold :^)
  2. The guy on the left is Brad Jones of GPAA. He appears to be holding Will's two-pounder. Will's story is a very interesting one (well worth tye read) and the worlds of gold prospecting and carousel horse carving will never be the same. As I heard it, a neighbor all but took care of him and was left a good portion of Nugget Man's estate.
  3. Well, I git myself a nice little prize psckage from Australia the other day. I limed, commented, and shared a Coiltek post on Facebook. Lo and behold, I won! What'd I get? An 18x12 coil, control box cover, t-shirt, hat, and stubby holder (aka beer koozie)! Yer dang right I'm excited! Can't wait to get ta swingin that bad boy around and pimp my box with a new cover. Those Aussies sure are serious about keeping a drink cold. That koozie has twice the insulation of our US models! The shirt is one size too small, but I'll still wear it, as it will frame my gut that much more nicely And now I have a Coiltek hat without sweat rings to wear to those more formal occasions.
  4. Was out there and had a blast, as always. Was an epic week of racing this year. Just gets bigger and better every year. Congrats on getting back after it with such a bum luck bushwhacking. 5th out of 25 starters. For all of you, here's how tough this race is: 154 Ultra 4 cars started Friday's main race. 32 finished. That number is up from last year's 29 finishers. These are truly the toughest one day races in the world.
  5. It already has some good pinstriping on it. I normally tell folks to roll up their window because I can't be bothered with missing limbs on the trail :^) Plans: build a rack inside to better hold gear, selectable lockers front and rear, stronger axle shafts. The tires are 35x12.50 BFG Mud Terrain KM2, and are about as big as you want to go on that front axle.
  6. It's the annual new years at Stanton. You have to be GPAA and pay the fee, or be LDMA.
  7. Happy now? (Not sure if file uploads work on mobile)
  8. We go in on Boone road off Old Woman Springs, but I do know where Bessemer Mine rd is. I have the CA claim maps for Google Earth, will take a look this weekend and plot to my GPS so I don't wind up on the wrong end of the barrel. May look up owners and ask permission. Worst they can do on the phone is say no.
  9. Those that don't know, The Hammers is the Johnson Valley OHV Area between Yucca and Lucerne Valley in Commiefornia. From my past reading, there is gold to be found in the northern areas of the place, and there was an active claim in there last time I looked. While I am going for race car testing and tuning, I think I'll take along my ML and swing it over some not-often hit hillsides and washes while there. I shoukd be abke to cover some good ground by pushing the car between areas, no? 100mph in the desert goes by quick like
  10. Got me a real early Christmas gift in the form of a 2001 Jeep TJ, then I put new shoes on him (Jeeps are hims, not hers). Other than that, it's all about the kiddo come Christmas in these parts. Now I have a street legal 4x4 to get me places. Just gotta get some stuff fabbed up to have a little more storage.

    TRUE 4X4

    Nope... no bed for him to fill up with 3 tons of crap "just in case" That and the approach/departure angles aren't negative values, so I would end up bashing it into things
  12. I asked, and wasn't too keen on the idea. I'll ask him again when he's got a few in him. That'll be about 17:05 on Friday.
  13. I do know the owner of one of the large tracts of land up there (around 12,000 acres) which includes the peak of Weaver Mtn. It's a boulder farm that he's turned the lower part into an off road park. Although he doesn't like prospectors on the land, he did say he would allow me (I did some announcing for some rock crawling and other events they had on the property), and his manager knows where the gold is. I'll approach him with the idea and see what he says. Know, though, he will be very strict about holes and other such stuff. That's his biggest complaint with prospecting.
