  1. Well he got pneumonia at one point and later COPD. Eventually he was on oxygen almost all of the time. They only gave him a couple years to live since it is a progressive disease. He researched stem cells and thought he'd give it a shot. It is fairly expensive. But 5 years later he is still going. He still needs oxygen part of the time, but not as much as he used to. So It seems to have helped some. If anything, it has definitely stopped it getting worse. (which isn't supposed to happen)
  2. That Stem Cell Therapy is good stuff. It really is a miracle. I've seen what it had done for my dad's lungs. Awesome!! And you know I'm play'n about that son of yours. Young Tom has a heart of gold. It doesn't surprise me one bit. I am sure Sherri is in good hands. Hope you see both out there soon! Andyy
  3. Old Tom - you still give me hope. When I'm out hiking at night trying to cheat the sun, I start huffing and puffing, and then remember Old Tom wouldn't stop. So neither will I. Too bad your good habits didn't wear off on that crazy son of yours. Oh well. Time to have another kid!! You keep going, Old Tom! Oh yeah, Luke, …. I typically prefer to watch youtube videos on how to finding gold. No gold, here. Noooope. Andyy
  4. I read someplace that, in mild ground, the Auto capability has a wider range of sensitivity than even Manual. But the ground has to be mild enough use it. I still experiment with both. And when pinpointing, I am definitely always in Manual as Auto will tend to balance out the tiny stuff, in my experience. If I had to guess, for my ground, Manual is at least better than Auto1. Auto2 is typically too noisy, but your video proves that I have to do some more experimenting while the target is in the ground, for Auto2.
  5. I wonder how full manual would compare to those auto settings. Excellent video.
  6. yeah those gullies keep on giving. Those chips of rusted metal can really drive me nuts and make me walk on. I just try to cut down the trash time with the magnet as much as possible. Glad you scraped up some more. Now you might have to go back again … you know there are some little buddies hiding in the cracks.
  7. Wow, Dan. Great finds all around. Relics and gold. You've got it all. Good to hear from you. Keep the finds coming. Andyy
  8. Cool Luke. Now why couldn't we find all those last time we were out? LOL. Glad to see the only virus you are still fighting is the gold fever.
  9. I like the topography but you need to make sure the geology is conducive to placer gold. Soil looks to light to me but that may just be this picture. Are there placer claims in the area? Do you see any test pushes from dozers? How far is the nearest lode mine? There are so many signs that might make you a little more confident before you ever set boots on the ground. As for someone being there, they could be animal hunting or something else. You just never know. It seems like we all have to assume at least 50 prospectors have been through the gullies before us. So I don't let it bothe
  10. Man, I am happy for you!! Remember that feeling when you found it. It'll drive your future hunts like a bulldozer!! Andyy
  11. Yeah, I love the little Midget Coil. But it is going to take a looooot of these kind of trips to pay it off. Gary, you aren't kidding about the Burros. I could hear them over the hill laughing at me. (seriously) They are all over that area.
  12. Well, I tried a new way to get out to this new gold area I found. The gold seemed fairly small, but I had to hike in at least 3 miles to get there. So I tried to drive in another way in hopes of only having to hike in a mile. Of course Google Earth made things seem better than they were (almost like I could drive right there), but in the end I only cut about a mile off the hike (one way). So now I had a decision to make … take my GPZ 14" coil, the GM1000, or what I call my Midget Coil (10" Xcoil). GPZ 14" about killed me getting out there last time so that was out. I love the GM1000 on b
  13. Good video. That claim has some nasty hot rocks but also some good gold, as you have seen. Gotta love that gold monster. I never remove the small coil from it. I typically use the GPZ but when I come up to a lot of exposed bedrock, I remove the GM1000 from my pack. It is just lighter and smaller for getting in those tight spots that the larger coils cannot.
  14. Good job, Gary. I like that you are trying to help newbies. I don't have much of a video face, so I stick to forums. LOL. But I wish you well with your videos! Andyy
  15. Hey Hey, nice one Mike. And a happy birthday to you, too! Thanks for the story.
