  1. When I cleaned up the ring I could read that it was 18K!!! I don't know why it tarnished so ...
  2. We'll be in the Quartzsite area tomorrow for a day of nugget hunting and then we'll hunt those coins and tokens on Saturday at the QMDC Super Hunt! We've enjoyed it in the past. Hope to see you there. Mitchel
  3. I should be there on the morning of the 17th. If you have a place I can go with my wife and son then we could meet up. If not then we might just go to Middlecamp and let him play around there because we have found nuggets there before. Mitchel
  4. We've had an outing in Rye Patch for each of the last 5 years. We stayed at the cabins and the club owned by the Humboldt River Homeowners Association. We still have club members that said they could make it happen again in 2020. It has always been one of my favorite outings anywhere even when WSPA didn't have any club claims there. Open ground is abundant and the gold while harder to get is unique and prized. Mitchel
  5. Happy Day After Birthday ... its a great time of year to be detecting. I hope you got out and found a big one. Mitchel
  6. Chris, I bought your old SE Pro and found a lot of good things on the beach. When the 3030 came out I stopped using it exclusively but still liked it. After I got married my wife used it and found nice gold with it but she also dropped it in the salt water. We nursed it along for a couple of years before it died of corrosion and Minelab wanted over $500 to repair it. We bought a lightly used one off eBay last year for the $500 but haven't cranked it up as I am using the 800 and she is busy. My observation of the SE Pro is that it is much less affected by EMI in some of my beach areas than the 3030 or the Nox. I like the way the SE Pro sounds but I don't really like what I see on the screen. Things are sideways rather than up and down. It not being waterproof limits is use. I had used it at times with a plastic bag over it to keep the unit dry. I've paid for the SE Pro, 3030 and 800 with finds on the beach but I it took less time with the Nox even tho it has been 5 years later and fewer targets on the beaches. My wife likes SE Pro and when she starts back again she wanted another one so we got it. Mitchel
  7. Charlie, Did I miss the picture? This must be the one you got at the outing when no one else got one, right? Mitchel
  8. That's very purdy and unique. We say nuggets are like snowflakes. I hope you get more. Mitchel
  9. Where was Chet? haha He was going to be 'out' a long time after the outing. Mitchel
  10. Here is a reference for Arizona and a bump to this thread: The resources of Arizona : its mineral, farming, and grazing lands, towns, and mining camps, its rivers, mountains, plains, and mesas, with a brief summary of its Indian tribes, early history, ancient ruins, climate, etc. : a manual of reliable information concerning the territory / Comp. by Patrick Hamilton under authority of the Legislature.

  11. Chet has a nice one coming when he gets back to a WiFi connection at McDonalds or somewhere! I got my first nugget in LSD/SD. It is a .25g whopper!
  12. Where are some of you posting the outing pictures? Do we have any night shots? Mitchel
  13. Anyone going to the 'old' spot has to pass the new one. I've seen others park there with clean, expensive RVs because they don't want to get them dirty! Does this still require the Land Trust permit be displayed? Mitchel
  14. Thank you Bill. I'm glad Bill has stepped back into the leadership role and will now move us into its next phase. Mitchel
  15. Where are you hiding the 7000 gold? haha
