  1. With Covid and isolation the honey do list all of a sudden grew...form painting my daughters room to replacing the flooring, replacing hot water heater, to need to paint my house, replace composite roofing and so on. I did take a brief time out and dusted off my ML 4500 and hit some old patches with the intention of slowing my swing that a snail could beat me in a race. I cranked the detector on , backpack on, and started working a dirt road near a seasonal stream I worked before and found some nice pieces..I got a nice soft deep sound almost could be mistaken as ground noise form the iron minerals. I took the pick and scrapped off about half and inch and noticed this was solid packed clay, after about 4 -5 inches..I plucked this little .80 gram piece.

  2.   In politics people may believe they care about specific policies or making the world a better place but generally are bored by policy detail and ignore accurate information that challenges their world view. The main stream media, web based news sources, all play the part in spreading deliberate disinformation and hoaxes that the masses feed on. Sensationalism sells...I challenge any of the forum members to watch English versions of news broadcast from other nations. Yeah, yeah.. :ROFL:.I can all ready hear some of you think ..sure foreign news sources all fake news...lol. Give it a try...go on YouTube and watch yes I am going to say it Al Jazzerra , DW from Germany or any other English language  based news coming from anywhere other then this country. You will observe real news, you will also learn a bit about the rest of the world and their cultures and life. I call it intelligent news...for the thinking brain , not the sheeple we all have become watching CNN ,MSNBC or FOX. Each of them stuck on their own narrative that fits their politics. Mouth pieces for their party void of respect for the citizens. Anyways....peace to all. Funny thing is, these talking heads on tv..all millionaires...living the life and we the struggling , divided and fighting. hey maybe that's whats its all about. :89: 

    I like gold, pictures of gold, and best of all the search of gold. Hope you all get out and start swinging that detector.

    Its been interesting reading this thread. I also believe this country is in trouble but its not the end of the world. Ive spent a ton of time in third world war zones and what always amazed me is I could always get food and basic supplies even in conflict. I've bought chicken from roadside vendors in Iraq, got beef and vegetables from village markets in the mountains of Afghanistan, and had some awesome Bedouin mystery meat being sold from a tent in the Sahara desert.  Heck on day three of OIF I was flying over the edge of Baghdad and dudes were out water skiing on the river and didnt give a rip the Marines where coming. People will find a way to cope with adversity that is effecting their life. 

    I think it will be a huge adjustment for all of us on what the new normal will be but I believe we will all find a way to get through it. I think our biggest threat is majority of the country has had it easy for so long it will be hard for some to cope with the adversity this pandemic has presented. I feel the coming few months will be a challenge for the country but once we adjust to the new normal things will get better over time.

    The other issue I see is people believing the pandemic isnt real or that we are on the back side of the curve. It bummed me out grocery shopping this week, the store was packed but only a couple of us were masked up the rest were acting as if things were back to normal. I've had some conversations with individuals where I live and its amazing the amount of people who still think its all fake news or just another flu. But I have to remind everyone that the reservation that I do some work on is getting hammered and allot of the cases in our state are not being reported due to the lack of widespread testing. 

    Buckle up, the next few months are going to be rough but if we all work together and do our part to stop the spread of covid we will get through this.  

    Totally agree, we had its so stable for a very long time....like you said...their is always a way to get food, and basic essentials, gray and black markets thrived in a few places I been.

  4. Its a good practice run for something way more serious, verdict is we are like most nations unprepared with basic necessities beyond 2 weeks. After that the majority of our citizens will be expecting government to save them...leading to chaos, hysteria and violence. With major paradigm shift of powers and economy  going form West to East, China's appetite to surpass us in fields of technology, military and economy the future seems even more uncertain.  You can bet we will continue to use any means to squeeze them which will be a futile attempt and end  in failure leading to more  economic instability do to major competition. The economic pie is sliced to thin ...hopefully this virus will make us more aware to be better prepared.

  5. Some good post about readiness and survival...one thing I disagree on is we should  not speculate or point fingers and conspiracies about who spread what. Virus is non discriminatory. As far as conspiracy theories  ....you don't have to throw the rock across the ocean, just read up on our own government experiments on our own people. Operation Sea Spray just one of many. I don't trust any of them...but like I said....they are just as to fall victim to it as we are.

  6. Wanted to get off the Coronavirus/TP  train and post a find..after all we are a metal detecting /prospecting forum. After many years of nuggethunting...I thought I would revisit relic hunting with a vlf. I took out my Whites MXT and headed to some grounds I spotted  ground that appeared to be used as temporary camps form the Gold Rush. At first I was diggin everything until I decided to switch to the relic mode two tone setting so I can minimize my iron trash count and increase my non-ferrous.  After about  2 hours I got a nice solid high tone ( non-ferrous target ) and dug this beauty ...one part of a 2 piece belt buckle cir. 1830 Pattern  Naval Officer waist belt  , As of yet I have not located the buckle tongue which features an eagle with its talons holding an anchor..perhaps in time i will find it. Regardless its a great find on its own as there are not many of these know to exist., after much research I still have not found any online other than what a friend sent me identifying and confirming its  an 1830 Naval Officers waist belt buckle. Lets start posting.....who is next?

    Well..it's not the medias fault. They are simply reporting the facts. Would you rather they pretend nothing is happening then allow it to fester into a full blown catastrophic event?

    Yeah...one thing that excites me most is waking up every  morning and hearing the FACTS :ya:from the mass media the one that creates hysteria.

  8. Imagine the life of a monk...the thoughts of early California..the missions,  and and  those beautiful natives. Oh and all that gold to find the Spaniards and Mexicans missed!! Time to read some early 1960 issues of Treasure magazine..you all have a great 2020.
