    I know this is an old post, but looking closer at your pictures of the aircraft part. I can see that it reads "utility system" That system supplied hydraulic pressure to the landing gear,and brakes. The primary system runs the flight control surfaces. I worked aircraft hydraulics in the Air Force and as a civilian at Luke AFB. starting in 1969 to 2000.. That jet crash part was older than the ones I worked on. You discovered a real piece of history! Congrats!

  2. You all mind if an old newbie joins up with ya at the outing?

    I have been out of the prospecting arena for about 18 years, but now that i'm retired I think my wife is wanting me to get out of the house more often...go figure. Guess I'm getting on her nerves.

    I 'm considering joining roadrunners or another club again so I can have places to hunt. If I'm a club member is a parking or camping permit still required for the state trust land? Sounds like there are a lot of changes going on. Next thing ya know there will be a dress-code for chasing gold. Makes me wonder who really owns the land.



  3. There is generally good color found in the cracks of bedrock and on top of the caliche (clay).

    I use to metal detect and drywash from 1981 to about 1996. I have found some pretty decent color in the LSD area. Stay away from the main washes, look for the smaller tributaries that feed them. There is still a lot of gold to be found there Just go slow and enjoy yourself and I'm sure that you will find what you are looking for. Just my two cents worth.
