  2. SPOT is an emergency locator that sends a signal for search and rescue to follow, via satellite. It also sends a message to my wife and daughter as to my location with it pin pointed on a GE map. Lots of places we go there is simply no cell phone service. Tom
  3. Carry a SPOT in case something goes wonky Tom H.
  4. I dont have a cell phone....probably never will. Im stuck in the 70s
  5. One other thing....I dont need a GPS in the unit...just two way communication. Tks Tom
  6. Hey all: Looking for some advice on walkie talkies. Was out hunting this weekend with Luke and we were suppose to meet at a certain spot at 1. Well 1 came and went and about 1:30 we found each other. My fault. The spot we were suppose to meet at was on the other side of the big hill! Needless to say, all sorts of things start going through your head....both our heads! Broken leg, broken hip, heart attack....... So, we are looking at getting some walkie talkies. What I would like to know is........... Do all of them not work (like the ones we have) when your down in washes and such? Are the longer range ones more powerful and will over come the hills and valleys? Do any of you use one that works good out in the hills that you could recommend? Thanks Tom H.
  7. Kyle: You will learn that certain geology/rocks/ground are more favorable to finding gold as you go along. BUT......I have also found gold in areas that I googled and once on the ground it looked like crap. Detected it anyways and found some gold. Guess what im trying to say is, dont get too focused on looking for a certain type of ground that you dont detect other areas. We dont know what happened mubzillion years ago on earth or what has eroded away in the not to distant past to make the ground look good or bad. Just keep at it and you will learn. P.S. if you get into a area with iron stone/green stone and rotten rusty quartz.....slow down and hunt. The ironstone may drive you nuts, but, GOLD RIDES AN IRON HORSE. Tom H.
