  1. Did anyone see the fire ball over the Phoenix valley this morning? I was driving to work heading south when the sky lit up enough to make me turn my head to see the newly forming sun causing all that light. I haven't seen very many but this was by far my best.

  2. I got out this weekend with some good friends. We hit all new area in an old spot with no luck. Then we decided to jump in the truck to an area we have never been. The area was worked hard by old timers who left lots of trash. Once tired of kicking hit rocks and digging their trash I got out of the washes and started pounding hillsides. The area is covered in "desert pavement" and one tiny piece of gold getting a tan. Good times were had by all!

  3. Well I haven't been on the forums much lately but detecting still happens every now and then. Here are hand full of nuggets from a new area I found last year.... I had to get them all first lol. I hope all is well with everyone here. I will try and get to the outing and say hi!

  4. It may not look it but it is. Good wash it was. I actually found my very first nugget in this wash years ago dry washing. Washed round half gram slug looked just like the bottom nugget but slightly bigger. What a day that was too.

    I detected all day Friday got to camp at 1am said hi to a few people in the morning. Detected with some friends most of the day Saturday and started for home when dinner was served. Total weight was just shy of 4 grams. The second nugget down was found by my friends using my detector for the first time about 15 minutes after he started swinging. He is hooked now...

  6. My two cents... difficult and audio smoothing will loose faint targets. In many cases it's better to lower the sensitivity and stay in normal than move to difficult. In gold basin I hunt in normal ground, sensitivity 10, audio smoothing off, general, and a very low threshold of around 5. I will change settings depending on emi and ground conditions but this is where I start. Good luck to you!

  7. Ha thanks everyone for the info. We went to the rim last weekend the family (wife) ? decided it would be to hot in box canyon and wanted higher elevation. East clear Creek was perfect! Not too many people and not hot. We will go back again.
