  1. Was finally able to get out and do some detecting in a couple of old spots and a new spot with Luke. The 1 gram I got from the new spot at about 4 inches. YES.....lots of new ground to hunt! And the .1 I got from a old spot at 1 inch deep. Great day to be out in the peace and quite and find some gold Tom
  2. Very nice! Congrats on the finds. Tom H.
  3. Kyle.................start detecting the banks and hillsides also. I know it can seem boring...but that gold came from somewhere and it might just be a little out of the wash up on the sides. I know you said you did not find any other small stuff, but, if you dig down and hit it with a VLF, I bet you will find more that way. GO Geet it!! Tom H.
  4. Crimmy! Your doing great!!! This does not happen much.....enjoy the heck out of it. Tom H.
  5. Ron! Congrats are in order at our age Hope you had a good on. Tom H.
  6. I have hammered the heck out of some spots in the past......and went back in with a shovel and dug it out. Got a lot more after that using my VLF detector. Its a pain digging. Sit down and act like your rowing a boat. Not so hard on the back and that way you can sit on a pad and scoot around Dont forget to detect your throw piles. GOOD LUCK TO YA!!!! Hope to see more from that spot. Tom H.
  7. Sweet!!!! Get a shove and start digging the wash out. Really nice score. Congrats. Was it Arizona? Tom H.
  8. Try googling it..there is tons of info out there and lots of Vids. on Youtube. Tom H.
  9. Yes, the outings are open to all forum members. The are we go to "Little San Domingo" has lots of GPAA and Roadrunner claims. Also a lot of open unclaimed areas to prospect. Tom H.
  10. I would like that Shep. Maybe in a month or so. Thanks! Tom H.
  11. It washes out and looks blurry in sunlight...a dull day is good but have to wait for it. and then it picks up all the surrounding areas ....The photograph box I made with black on the top and blue on the sides seems to work best to show chrome. Im working on an new way to take pics of chrome tomorrow so that there is no reflection on the front side. IE....a big white curtain with just the lens sticking through. Chrome is very hard to capture correctly. Tom H
  12. I dont think getting one of them is going to happen in the near future Tom
  13. I was finally able to finish up a project I started a very long time ago this week. I bought the hood ornaments for 1949-1955 from the Nash automobile. I think they are some of the most beautiful hood ornaments ever made. But, they were on a very homely car! Some were in pretty rough. I did all the prep work and plating myself on these and took great pains to make sure the faces and lines were perfect. The reflections on them kind of goof them up. Chrome is very hard to photograph. The process involves sandblasting them to remove all the corrosion, drilling out each pit and filling with solder
  14. Its a big steel cartoon character of a Jack ass. The area we camp at is a big flat area called Jackass flats. No one is sure how it got up there. Im pretty sure alcohol was involved Tom
  15. Great going Gary!!!! Glad your back out and getting them. Nice nugs Tom H.
  16. More pics!!!..........if you all have some....please post them. Tom H.
  17. Well............this is about the first time in about 20 yrs the Nugget shooter outing did not happen due to the current circumstances. Hopefully we can pull a small one off in Feb. Many good times shared around the campfires at night and out hunting with friends. Here are some pics from over the years at the outings. ENJOY! Tom H.
  18. Yup...it was a great day just to get out and forget about everything!.......I got a couple of dinks out of the gut of that area in the past...but did not hit the sides, so you win! Hard to hit a lot of ground with the little monster though. Must have walked past that nug 10 times in the past. But, hey! the area above it (backwards wash) was kind to me Good time out...will hit it again! Tom H. P.S. that second photo looks like a gold monster hanging on to the quartz .Head to the left, arms in the middle and legs to the right. I may need to put the whiskey away for tonight
