    Lets hope this holds....

    Be careful of the brush.. It can catch your detectors and break some stuff before you get started. When on my yamaha grizzly 4x4 I always mounted my detector parallel with the tires. I too carried a lot of gear as well. Now days... I take the polaris ranger most of the time. Good Luck!!

    New 2018 F150 V6 3.0L Diesel!!

    My '15 Camaro has that 'Active Fuel Management' (AFM) on it (auto trans.) It drops it down to 4cylinders when it's up to speed. I didn't buy a v8 to run w/4cyl. I bought a chip (AFM delete by Range - $100) that you plug in under the dash so when you're above 5mph it deactivates the AFM. v8 mode all the time Had it on since new with no issues what-so-ever. About 2wks ago I picked up a 3rd Gen Toyota 4runner (1997) from the original owner. Got it just for my detecting/prospecting trips. It's very clean and has the E-locker in the rear diff. So far I've added a WeatherTech bug shield and floor liners. Changed the spark plugs, wires and boots, installed new fuel filter and going to do front & rear diff oil -n- T-case oil tomorrow. Can't wait to get it out in the hills and see how she does.

    Detecting hat

    That is a great idea. I have a couple big brimed hats w/neck flap that I don't wear because of the head phones and just saved them for yard work. I got use to wearing a ball cap with a bunch of sunscreen. I'm gonna take one a cut it to fit the head phones.

    Fines to a button.

    Nice... I have a little fines waiting for a bored day too!!! Purdy!!!
  12. We've had chickens for years and with that the quail and doves come in for the easy pickings. Well I've been breaking up the Cabin Fever around here by stocking up on some dove breast. We have non-native dove in the US (Eurasian Dove) that has no hunting season and no bag limit placed on them in NV. You can easily tell the difference between them and the Morning Dove which is a migratory bird with strick limits and hunting season by the black feathered ring on their neck. I recently bought a PCP air riffle and have been taking advantage of it's awesome accuracy. They are very tastey when you breast out the meat and wrap it with a half slice of bacon and a slice of tammed jalapeno. Soak some tooth picks in water then stick it through the wrap and toss em on the BBQ. We even put a little bbq sauce on them at times. Anybody else have a recipe on how they cook dove? Doug Note: In some states they do count as your limit when taking other doves during season. In NV there is as yet no mention of limit or season.

    I've found that learning to enjoy to the time out is key!!! Finding a nugget-er-3 or more...is a bonus. AND Most of all ... I'm guaranteed to find a backache every time out.

    Today's Butt Ugly Half Gram Nugget

    My appologies Morlock if you thought my comment was directed your inquirey on HF. Sir. . . it was not. I really wanted to "throw caution into the wind" for those that read this site for information and are new the processes of cleaning gold. Believe me... there are quite a few more knowledgeable than I on here. But, I do know the hazards of HF and wanted to add an extra emphasis on its use for those that might be less experienced.

    New buggy!

    I bought a new Cherokee in 1995. It was a great rig and we regret selling it. But our son out-grew the back seat so we steped up to a crewcab longbed. Now that he's off to college I want to downsize my rig. My bouncy '78 F250 is too rough a ride and guzzles the petro... Shopping I GO... Thnx for the info. & .02cents.. much appreciated.

    Today's Butt Ugly Half Gram Nugget

    HF will do quite a good job on cleaning up your gold specimens. But... it is nasty (dangeruos) stuff and IMHO it should not be handled with inexperienced hands. PPE is critical when using the stuff. It could be a game changer if it makes contact with your eye's, skin or respiratory system. Don't mean to preach... jus throwing caution into the wind. I have never used HF but have friends that do, and the result is awesome. I use 'Whink - Rust Stain Remover' found at Wallyworld and most hardware stores. It has a very small amount of HF in it and does a good job if you have the paitence to let it sit for days and change out the solution every so often. Have fun -n- Be safe

    Today's Butt Ugly Half Gram Nugget

    "crawling like a snail in a minefield." That should be the 'Tip of the day!!! When you know you're in the right area and you know that it's around in the specific area you're walking... you crawl. Good on you for picking out the chirp in the high winds. I think like Ron's thinking (and a lot of others I'm sure) "Gold is gold" be it ugly and small.... it beats the hell out of the skunkster. Congrats and thanks for posting er up

    New buggy!

    Nice looking buggy for sure. You have done some great mods to her. I had a couple of dune buggies back in the day that were a lot of fun and they do pretty much like you said earlier..... "point and go". If I can.. IMHO.. make one suggestion that might help out a bit...... Look for a per-charger filter. I believe thats what they're called. It is just a dry foam sleve that would slip over your K&N type oiled filter. It will stop some dust from clogging up your air filter so quickly. You can slip it off a couple times during your trip and knock off the dirt then slide it back on for better air flow for a bit. Just an idea and they're definetly not spendy$$. I'm looking to buy/build something for prospecting when I don't take my UTV. I'm thinking about new Toyota Tacoma or an older 4runner to build... maybe even a Jeep Cherokee. A few fella's on here have such vehicles and I was thinking of asking how they like them but as to not jack your thread, I'll start a new one eventually. Have fun -n- Be safe Doug
