  1. Nice grouping... Looks like a lot of fun!
  2. They say persistence pays off. You proved it. Nice looking nuggets there!
  3. Good thing you didn't get hurt. Having a MacGyver brain when you're out in the desert by yourself doesn't hurt either! Bringing home some gold always rounds out the day. Nice gold there!
  4. The Praying Mantis is definitely one of the coolest insects around. Like an alien life form... that will eat anything it can get ahold of. Just noticed my typo on the second word of the topic title..... *adopted* I figure you all got the gist, or maybe hadn't noticed.... Hoping by the end of the summer I can still find one or two of these little dudes hanging around my yard! Thanks to whoever fixed the typo....
  5. Sometime this last December, in the LSD area, I noticed a few of these Praying Mantis egg sacks as I went along. I decided to borrow one and relocate it to my backyard. I don't believe in spraying poison all around my house, with the kids and the dogs roaming around. So these voracious little predators are certainly welcome to help keep the nuisance pest population in check. I'd been keeping my eye on this egg sack and when I took a look today they were already hatching. I counted at least 20 and I'm sure there's another 20 I didn't see. I really 'dig' stuff like this.
  6. Thanks Fred! I look forward to eventually putting your 'methods' into practice.
  7. I think you have to learn to find the gold before you should concern yourself with profits. Profitable may never happen.... Not trying to discourage, just being real. Educate yourself as much as possible and maybe you'll get lucky too. The best claims, are not the ones for sale, I'd assume. This is a great hobby/pastime and you can meet some real cool people along the way. Good luck to you!
  8. You know it's BS after reading the first sentence: "Over the weekend past boulder dash and I were sitting down of an evening discussing what little gold we had found that day"
  9. You guys are something else! Lucky, doesn't even begin to describe it....
  10. Nice character on those nuggets. I knew there were a few more out there. Hope I can get one before they're all gone! I did some community service and picked up a heaping handful of metallic garbage in the forest yesterday. Good times Beautiful day though... Way to go Tom! you too ArcticDave!
  11. Weekend is not over... Never know what could happen! Nice job Tom
  12. Almost forgot, Thank you for the buckets Shay!
  13. It was great to meet: Bill S. , Mike, TomH, Old Tom, Justin, Mitchel, Adam, Boulderdash, Gary, TempeDave, Arctic Dave, and AJ. There may have been a few others I can't remember at the moment. I had an excellent time and everyone was very friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. There were several others I didn't take the opportunity to introduce myself, so looking forward to next time! Thank you everyone for the hospitality. Luke
  14. Much knowledge floating around here in this forum. I think that the simple point of it all is: If there is a mineral claim of any kind, and you don't have permission from the claim owner, you could get in trouble if caught there with your detector. Regardless of what you are searching for. The idea that anyone would dig a nugget while searching for meteorites, and then put the nugget back in the hole. Absurd. Get the claim owners permission or don't go there.
  15. Maybe the coyote will come back and take the bunny off your hands...
  16. ...with that being said, I wish that was my living room floor in the picture! Can't wait to see the gold pics!!!
  17. I have to laugh a bit. When I see the box the GPZ7000 comes in, it looks like a toy. For that price, and detector capability, it should come in a leather briefcase or something like that. Even a pirate treasure chest would be better. It is the best, newest, latest, greatest,.... right?
  18. Looks like you guys had a great time!
  19. You are one talented individual. Perhaps a bit lucky too! Awesome stories and pictures, AzNuggetBob.
  20. AzNuggetBob, Thanks for the reply. I've seen some of those pics. Looking forward to using my Goldmaster to dig one of those babies up. Could be this weekend? Fingers crossed !! mn90403, I've seen several deals like those you describe. I'm just a ways off from having that kind of coin to throw out on a detector. I will have one someday. I gotta find some nuggets first. Then I may be able to convince my wife. I took a nice drive up to Congress this afternoon and met a nice gentleman by the name of Dave Lester. He gave me a good deal on a Sierra Gold Max coil. It's a little heavy but
