  1. Happy turkey day dave. The site loaded fine for me so maybe there was site maintenance going on when you tried.
  2. Hey Sledge, glad to see that I am not the only one. I still have 28 full buckets to pan afer carrying them over 380 yards back to the ride. I vowed to never do that again...until the next weekend. I am in the process of converting a bucket cart over to electric drive. I am using a 6v kids ride on toy for the mechanicals. That way the is no combustion engine involved for dry fire season. In the meantime I have downsized a little bit for sampling. I have been using the 34 ounce plastic coffee containers with lids. They get more than heavy enough. For marking my buckets I clip wooden clothes pi
  3. The only differences between the 600 and the 500 are that the 600 has an anti-rattle magazine and a firing pin spring. Hope this helps some. Anything you can do to one you can do to the other.
  4. Dowsing with an electronic device... we call it nuggetshooting with a metal detector... hmmm
  5. Way too cold for me. My thermometer showed 38 when I got up. Valley of the sun is now valley of the sunbeam refrigerator. At leat I am not the only one in Phoenix wearing thermals!
  6. The expert advice is worth more than all the freebies in the world... in my opinion. You can always buy gadgets but not real honest guidance. And when you feed the chickens give them a scratch on the head for me. Then go find some nuggets.
  7. And much better customer service too....
  8. Keep your eye on ebay. Glenn was correct as it was mentioned on the forum and was listed on ebay by one of the members. It was sold I believe.
  9. They reoppened digging on september 30th.
  10. Nope... we got them all. Just kidding. You can go dig crystals on diamond pointe. The area is also good for some fossils.
  11. A spam injection is needed to help you see plants better... it reacts with the cerebral cortex in the brain. Painless but in the wrong hands can be a real pain.
  12. I have found much more gold under tuba plants._
  13. Under the vegetation is probably because its hard to get a detector there and then dig the target. The bases of anthills have been listed because they have been found in gem areas to hold small gems that were escavated by the ants. But there is no real evidence that they indicate gold deposits or nuggets...IMO
  14. Hey Joe. Mike B, Tom, and I were in the superstitions last weekend and had hiked back a couple miles. Out of nowhere comes two volkwagon beetles with mudders on. These two old farts were fearless and having a blast. Was pretty amazing to see them back in quad territory. Hope you have a pound of yellow metal in your cons...
  15. Hey Joe, I don't think there is a dosage you carry them on your pockets. But I could be wrong. I love bees so never saw a reason to chase them away. Hows the zuki coming along?
  16. Birdy, I heave not been to either location but will look up details as I have a few books on them.
  17. Hi birdlady. Do you mean geodes? If so there are many in AZ. If lookong for minerals there is a great book by neil bearce called minerals, fossils, and fluorescents of arizona. It has maps and directions. Available at most bookstores.
  18. The best thing to happen to miners could come on November 6th. I would be interested in hearing your ideas about the AMF increases.
  19. Thanks for the links!!! I am sure there are many of us who can benefit from them.
  20. Hope you feel better soon Ron. Giant nuggies to you
  21. Hey Birdlady, welcome back by the way! We wondered where ya went. Anyway no cool down needed. But it needs to be made clear that people get cranky about their claims. Go over to gold prospecting section and read my thread about " verde river gold " where Clay speaks of dirty john. Explains it all. Depending on your area you would probably be better served with a club that you can attend meetings in person. Mingle time is very educational as well as beneficial. My phone number is in my profile if you have any questions that you don't want to post
