Hi, new guy here, first post, long time lurker. I've wanted to give prospectjng a shot for along time, but living Wisconsin I don't have much of a chance to do that. But now the wife and I are retired and will be heading to Arizona with another couple for the month of January. We'll be staying in Lake Havasu area. From what I've found in some other posts in here most recommend joining a club to get started. My ?. Am I better off joining Havasu Gold Seekers club or the GPAA. I can't seem to find where the GPAA claims in Arizona are located and how far they are from Lake Havasu. Was hoping someone here could steer me in the right direction Thanks in advance for any advice. Bill Southern, what's the best time to contact you about a possible detector purchase?
