  1. Oh.... Well then at least I don't have to imagine where it might be. Good to see you're still digging them out of there.
  2. ....and Happy Belated to those who wear a cover.
  3. Speaking of "G-Spot™" and maybe even your "Swingy Thingy®", I believe Uncle Ron was referring to the Kegel exercises used to strengthen pelvic floor muscles. https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/mens-health/in-depth/kegel-exercises-for-men/art-20045074 https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/womens-health/in-depth/kegel-exercises/art-20045283 Or maybe not....
  4. Hey Gary. WTG on those nuggets !! The video was a bit shaky, but I realize you were on your phone camera. Are those the first 3 from that wash, or have you been working that one for awhile?
  5. Yup. I don't swing a 7000, so maybe this won't apply.... When you are having the 'ghost signal' problem, try to turn the gain/sensitivity down slightly and see if that quiets it down any. When I have this problem with the GPX, a tiny gain tweak is often the solution. As far as hot rocks go.... If it makes a noise, I kick it out of the way. I don't rely on the machine ground balance to do all the work. If it's making a noise, the detector is trying to tell you something. It just takes a few seconds to move the 'noise maker' and see if that's all it was. Most times
  6. Whether or not you are wrong has nothing to do with me. If I'm understanding you correctly... You gave up and planted it in your garden like you were told, but still want to argue about it? Personally, I find it difficult to take seriously anyone who can't use the the word 'your' in the correct manner. Hate to be a grammar nazi, but words matter. Especially in science. Don't worry about me, I can find plenty of 'heavy' sandstone to fill my garden. Thanks.
  7. I didn't say you were wrong. I don't know, and couldn't care less. If your 'fact' is so true, then why are you here trying to prove it to us? The title of your topic asks a question. It doesn't reveal the classification of your 'space rock'. If you are so sure it is what you think it is, you'll take it to someone who can give you a definitive answer. The museum curator you mentioned doesn't seem to have the qualifications you require. https://manitobamuseum.ca/main/collections-research/meet-our-curators/graham-young/
  8. So you are convinced, but couldn't convince anyone here? Perhaps if you were more engaged in finding the truth, you would have found it. Perhaps if you did your due diligence and did what was necessary to follow through, you could come back here and tell everyone how wrong they were. Instead, it's still just speculation. Where did you get your evidence of what happens to sandstone on entry? Why would it discolor white, when other meteorites do not? How do you know Martian sandstone is heavier? Have you been to Mars? Sorry if these are dumb questions. I'm not an exp
  9. Have you had any actual scientists look at it? What were their thoughts?
  10. That looks like a fine day! Or even five days. Congratulations. I'd be stoked too. Any gold found with a metal detector is good gold. I was just messing with you. I've been known to give gold miners from Nevada a hard time. Thanks for posting a pic.
  11. Pictures, or it didn't happen.... JK. But, if you want to post a pic or two of some gold you just found, it wouldn't hurt my feelings. Thanks for the comments guys !! Finding gold is fun !!
  12. It's a square mile of land. Gather up some buddies and claim it up. Maybe start a new club?
  13. As the seasons change here in Arizona, the temps have finally come down enough to get out and find some gold. I met up with a good friend this morning and we drove out to a place called "Owl Wash". Although I forgot to mention it at the time, I did see the owl today. After a couple hours and a half a dozen trashy targets, I moved my coil up the side of the gully and got a distinct signal. After scraping away all the loose material, I started to see darker clay and the bedrock. I slowed down and worked to pinpoint the target so I could hopefully 'see it' without disturbing it. I blew
  14. If you want to find tiny nugs with a PI detector, you should check out the SDC. The Nox or any other VLF will generally be better on the small stuff. Especially when depth is not an issue. PI detectors are generally for larger, deeper targets. It didn't sound like you had your 5000 noise cancelled properly. Sounded noisy to me and that EMI interference will kill performance. The 'Fine Gold' setting on the GPX is a timing used for highly mineralized ground. It is a filter of sorts and reduces potential depth in order to handle hot ground better. My suggestion is to put o
  15. How's that going? Should 'we' tax gas more? How about diesel? Pass it along to the consumer? Yes, the people of Alaska get a check for $1606. Alaska is a special place. Have you ever lived in Alaska?
  16. 1% is 820 million that could be used to prop up the infrastructure that mining companies use to do business. Roads, bridges, highways....etc. I just made up a number. It could even be less than 1% and still be very significant. It's 'funny' the different perspectives displayed here. I never once thought I would somehow get a 'royalty' check in the mail. It seems obvious to me, since I don't want my personal income taxes raised to eventually pay for all the things that are now overdue for repairs. The money has to come from somewhere. What do you guys think about toll roads?
  17. I think your spell check edited a couple words. I changed it back so it makes more sense now.
  18. One America News Network (OANN), also known as One America News (OAN), is a far-right,[13] pro-Donald Trump[21] cable channel founded by Robert Herring Sr. and owned by Herring Networks, Inc., launched on July 4, 2013.[26] The network is headquartered in San Diego, California, and operates news bureaus in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Its prime time political talk shows have a conservative perspective, and the channel has described itself as one of the "greatest supporters" of President Donald Trump.[27] Trump himself has promoted the network.[3][28][29] The channel is prominent
  19. So you really believe that the president's lawyer sat on this information for the last few months, only to release it 3 weeks before the election?
  20. No doubt your father was wise. Sounds just like something my Grandfather would say. The thing is, this only applies to consumers. If I don't consume 'your' product, then I shouldn't have to pay to subsidize 'your' company. Unless 'you' think socialism is a good idea. (which I'm sure you do not) If if true capitalism is the best way, then companies should sink or swim on their own merits.
  21. So much juicy material..... The Kool Aid got all drank up and now everyone's got stained lips. So ironic when people instantly dismiss valid information because it comes from a 'biased source', then turn around and regurgitate BS from a biased source.
  22. The IBD/TIPP national tracking poll, released Saturday, puts Biden at 50 percent in the head-to-head matchup, with Trump at 43 percent. The 7-point advantage is well outside the survey’s 3 percent margin of error. I suspect that the 'newly discovered' emails are not genuine. You know, fake news. Besides, even if they are 100% accurate, Hunter Biden is not running for president. Any of you guys have adult 'children'? Are you to be held responsible for everything they do in life? Should you be held back in your professional career because of alleged mistakes made by your off
  23. Good thing you got out of there with only a few stings. Last time I was out detecting with Andy, we had a swarm fly over us. I heard it and realized and started to run, but thankfully they were just 'flying over' and gone in a few seconds.
  24. It's a Canadian company by the way.... Why not an American company?
