  1. Thanks! I'm not quite there yet but I plan on filing early even though I know I'd get about $300/mo more if I waited a few more years. I just can't see the point in waiting in my particular case but I know I'll get by okay because I still have my VA (Partial) Disability Comp. & I'll still be able to work part-time if I want or need to, without having to pay a penalty. I'm pretty sure my current part-time job will continue long enough to overlap with social security when I'm eligible. With any luck at all I'll be back to making at least $500 extra every month once the pandemic situation set
  2. Thank you! As much as I have been wanting to get out & find more nuggets, I blame the pandemic. Detecting is one of the safest activities there is & at least I would get some exercise, fresh air and sunshine while hunting nuggets -- all of which I really need. The irony is that the little bit of work I'm still doing at home isn't paying enough to cover my basic expenses, so there hasn't been enough money to pay for gas to actually go anywhere. But hey, I'm still virus free and happy. My son Brian (the EMT) has been swamped at work and has had to transport a lot of Covid patients
  3. I was actually thinking about going to this outing... Until a bunch of idiots decided to go panic shopping and hoarded toilet paper and bottled water. The shelves have been empty in my area for a couple of weeks now & we're down to our last roll of TP here at home. So it looks like I'm going to have to stay home and hunt toilet paper instead of gold nuggets.
  4. I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year! Cheers! Lisa
  5. OEM "anything" is always going to be a lot more expensive than aftermarket parts that are manufactured by a third party. ;-) I'm one of the people using Chet's adapter on my Monster with velcro straps to help keep the strain off of the jacks - at both ends. I love it!!! And yes, the price is VERY reasonable. I think I had probably already spent at least two or three times Chet's price on adapters I bought and tried from several different sources - that didn't work! I didn't want to go hacking and cutting into my Monster or fiddling around with adapters anymore - I just needed something
  6. Hi Bob, I just sent him a PM with a link to this page/thread and let him know someone might be interested in his adapters, with an invite for him to jump right in this conversation if he's still interested in making them. I'll let ya'll know if I hear anything. Cheers! Lisa
  7. I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade or anything but, now that I've found an 1/8" adapter that actually works great with the $150 headphones (1/4" jack) that I already have, I can't see much profitability in designing & producing Monster-specific, high-end headphones. Sure, there are lots of adapters out there already but I never found a single one that actually worked with the Monster until one of our forum members handmade one for me. It works perfectly! If something like that could be put into production and marketed exclusively to Monster owners who are using high-end, 1/2" jack hea
  8. I wish each and every one of you a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
  9. WOW... Congrats, Luke! Merry Christmas, indeed!
  10. Well first off, in defense of Brian Kolfage and his lifestyle / income, his ability to be able to afford a nice sports car and a new home isn't much of a reality check. He is a disabled vet, regardless of being an E4, he is eligible for and would receive a 100% disability rating if he filed claims for his injuries. 100% disability with a wife and two children to support amounts to $3,437.10 per month, as of Dec 1, 2018. Add to that any additional income he receives from speaking engagements plus becoming an architect, I'm pretty sure he isn't trying to pull off a scam with his GoFundMe wall fu
  11. Thank you all very much! I really missed seeing you all at the last outing, but I was in the middle of moving and ended up injuring my back (again) - haven't been out nugget hunting in quite a while. Lots of rest and wearing a back brace when I'm doing any heavy lifting have been helping it heal. I'm about ready to get back out there beepin' nuggets again - long overdue! I hope you all have had a nice Christmas. See ya'll next year! Lisa
  12. To Kevin and everyone involved in the search efforts and those who were able to contribute information: Thank you and God Bless you all! I pray he will be found soon and that he is okay. Lisa
  13. Monday, Nov 12th is the Veteran's Day Holiday... How sweet is that?! Maybe get in an extra day of hunting Count me in - and maybe my son (Brian) will come along with me again for part of that weekend, too. Tent camping works great there; bringing a rake to clear the sharp rocks out of the way is recommended.
