    Andy- I wanted to send you a PM about your GPZ settings but it said you can't receive messages?

    November 2018 Outing Pictures

    Here's a few of mine. I think that snake bit off more than he could chew! Found some nice little nuggets that were hard earned over three days. Weather was great and had a blast seeing everyone! Chris

    1.7 oz Nevada Nugget!!

    Great looking gold. No quartz or anything on it.
  6. Hey now they get illegals and drugs up north there too Just like how the Atlantic Wall didn't work for the Germans, it's hard to stop all of them right at the border. Sometimes gotta go after them further inland too.

    Desert Gold !

    In situ pics are always my favorite. Recreates the rush you get when you're detecting and you brush out the dirt and see the nuggy sitting there in the bedrock.
  8. Will be going on eBay soon anyways. Just wanted to try the forums to avoid the fees.

    I have nothing but good things to say about WSPA. I attended the last two Southern Arizona outings and I met some nice folks and found some nice little nuggets. The setting and steak cookout on the second day of the outing is hard to beat. I recommend the club to anyone who’s looking for an alternative to the big clubs like GPAA and Roadrunners. The WSPA outings were just about meeting up and detecting for gold. There’s no bingo, cake walks, karaoke etc. They don’t have a ton of claims but the ones they have are in good areas. I’ve seen some nice gold come out of the ones here and in California.
