  2. You and I have talked many times about this land grab and agenda 21 Jim. Talked to Harold today, came into Lowe's looking for a BBQ. Congratulations. Dan Taylor
  3. Lies from the horsed mouth. Listen carefully your next. He thinks he is Lincoln.
  4. The Land Grab has started. It was spear headed by Judy Chu. Who has know ties to the communist party. Oh and she is our congressman. Much evidence on our Facebook fight (read links below) YES. WE fought HARD but in the end lost to Obama Chu and all the agenda 21 people. See more of our struggle here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1466046667010170/ and here https://www.facebook.com/groups/713957762016345/ Word is next stop Coolgardie and then most likely Randsburg. Keep joking Chris Ralph but you Arizonians are next. This is Americas wake up call. You Zonies think Arizona is untouchable...wake up before it's to late. AU Dan
  5. Happy fathers day Jim. Keep at watch out for all them red headed women in black under pants. Keep the flag flying high. From all your prospecting kids.
  6. Happy birthday Bill. Life begins today.
  7. Jim, You can never know how much Jon (aka Broken Arrow) and my self appreciate all your generosity. All the time you have spent passing along your knowledge to us. Along with your help and support has been amazing. You can be a tough teacher but you know your stuff. I will never for get that Saturday night I came over to visit. I wanted to show you a YouTube video of a outing some one had posted. If memory serves me you had no interest...BUT I lured you in. Then it was game on. For the next hour you dissected that video. Having me pause it every 30 seconds as we had a geology lesson. I remember how you told me the guy in the video was walking over good ground and how excited you got when you saw the ground he should have been spending his time on. Tailing piles vs mine dumps...the lession went on and on. The knowledge you have imparted to Jon and I through your books and personal lessons has been priceless. We are blessed and very lucky Jim your a TOUGH ol miner. Yep Mackay was a miner....and your a tough one at that. Your one of there best. All I can say is THANKS. Dan PS Bill, You got to know how much Jim respects you what you have done for this industry. And how much he loves this electric campfire...So as Jim would say throw another log on boys...let it burn. SIDE NOTE. Guys... Jim love to be told how much you like him. We all like to be appreciated. BUT what Jim really likes it educating. So if there are any questions or problems you got...ASK. He might be able to help. Be patient, at 84 some times it can take a little longer. I got to say this though. I do not know many 84 year olds that use the computer as good as Jim. Any questions? Throw a log on, lets get this baby burning.
  8. We all got to get our act together. EVERY ONE who enjoys using YOUR land. http://politichicks.tv/column/bureau-land/ Sorry to be Political. Miners, Off roaders, Fisherman... yes and soon hikers need to band together. I wish I knew how we could all unite.
  9. When one does something nice for others it's a gift. If one does it with the hope of being repaid, it's not a gift. For your sake I hope you do not let this experience harden your heart to helping others. I'm so thankful to all who have given me there gifts of knowledge. I hope one day I can give something back in return out of kindness.
  10. Happy Birthday Jim Straight. From your boys Mike & Mike, Jon and Dan.We all wish you Happy B Day this friday. 84 Wow, you found a lot of gold in those 84 years. Also helped a lot of people find gold, and for that we thank you. Many more to come
  11. Safe to say Thanksgiving will always be an extra special day the rest of your life. Congrats
  12. Garimpo, Wow we complain about America, We got it good. Hummm 5.5 lb. thats heavy. Any thing on the claim that it finds small gold?
  13. A word about Jim. Jim is one of the most generous people you will ever know. Weather it is with his family or a stranger, Jim always wants to lend helping hand. It astound me what he has done for others and has asks nothing in return. He LOVES to engage with strangers and only talks about himself until he gets them to open up. Then he listens to their story with true interest. He always has something positive to say, and is a true lover of life. Jim LOVES to what he says is “teach” I say it’s sharing his knowledge. When he is talking to you, he will always say I learned that from “so in so” Never… I came up with that, or I wrote that book. This is so refreshing to me in this industry where may copy and paste, then take all the credit. All the articles and books that he has written are unbelievable to me. When Jim is gone the Library will have burned down. So many experiences, so much life, so much history. Learning. Jim still loves to learn. When he could not get into his office with his wheel chair to access his PC Many thought it was over. Going from Windows Me in his office to a laptop with Windows 7 was quite a jump. Jim is slowly making that jump as we all see. He never gives up. His favorite saying are… I found the smoking gun. Or when one door closes one door opens. Nope it’s not just “a metal dector sitting in the closet only finds dust” My favorite Jim saying is “Gold loves bad soil” Sorry to make this a commercial for my friend Jim. I just hope I could give you all a little inside about my friend that some of you may not know. Yes he is a true legend . A legend that has helped so many people, but not just prospectors. Jim you’re a good man.
  14. roadsrunner, ISOLATOR - The lower most section of a non-metallic control shaft which attaches to the search coil and separates the metallic portion of the control shaft from the electromagnetic field. If your connecting cable has free play and flopping around when you bump a rock or the ground you MAY get a false signal. Still sometimes a little unsure of your questions. As far as Jim's books, skipping through is is hard to do. There is lots of information that I sometimes have to read over a couples times to get. The information on page 102 & 103 tells why you may need a isolator.
