  1. I remember laying in my tent that night thinking.... I hope I dont get struck by lightning.....
  2. Thank you!!! Very much appreciated! I took today and tomorrow off work to relax. My daughter's birthday is tomorrow so my celebration is short lived.... but all the better! I am really missing you fellas and waiting to get out!
  3. Yes very sad....... I haven't hunted in close to 6 months.......But I got a new truck though . Im working harder and harder to get what my family I need to be successful at life. It's hard for everyone right now but we need to keep at it. We will all meet up somewhere someday.
  4. We use the Amazon tv stuff instead of cable tv and I found a very good informative show series that highlights desert mining in the early days. Mostly California and Nevada but it is certainly interesting!
  5. You obviously have a very good idea about kids... I remember my parents take my sister and out to a spot that they found and spending great days playing in the water and having a good old time. Unfortunately they never panned gold out... only pirites. But it got me on track to do something more than sit a home. I took all of my finds and stories straight to my parents, i guess to thank them. They are passed away now so it resonants to pass it down..... and maybe she will be better than me some day.
  6. Luke got his post birthday nuggets! Great job guys! Glad to hear dad is getting out on the hunt. Good times, good gold.
  7. It did. Really deep in some areas that choke up. Some areas are more cleared off and some areas filled in.
  8. Luke! Happy Birthday buddy! To many more
  9. Great photo! Im sure its even better memories. Thank you for sharing!
  10. Holly, Lily and I headed out yesterday about Noon for a quick trip to pan some dirt. I took the Sdc2300 with so i could check some spots that I had worked over the last season. Well....Holly took the detector and started digging targets. Wire.... bullet... wire. Her attitude was still upbeat even though it was just trash. I told her to head for the bedrock and stay shallow. She did just that. She found, dug and recovered a nice little nugget! A side note: I was walking about two feet from the truck when I spotted this. Eyeball detecting on the fly. I guess its considered a sunbaker but
  11. That was a big mistake. Someone got written up probably....
  12. Im pretty certain on a rivet. The sizing is correct. Here are a couple of photos comparing my current levis that im wearing today.
  13. I figured that part out a few minutes ago ... im still working on a date. Hard to find info on particulars.
  14. Holly, Lily and I went out to a pretty far (for us as a family) place on Sunday morning. I found wire... Holly found a nice little rivet that im assuming is pretty old. I wasn't excited until I started researching it. I still cant find much info for the year. Here is a few photos. Also...Lily was very much enjoying the light up bracelets that were handed out.
  15. As said again and again.... a day out is a great thing gold is a plus. But spotting a tortoise is the wild is a way cool thing, I've seen alot of wildlife but only one tortoise when i was a child. Good job Tom!
  16. I have the pf 35. I use it . But rarely. It will speed up recovery, but only when your pin pointer can see . Some detectors are so "good" that it will see what a pin pointer wont (tiny gold). If you think you might be digging relics also it would be wise to keep it.
  17. Money comes and goes (dont break yourself). I have always held a gpaa membership. Meeting other people that are like minded will be the major benefit of joining a club.
  18. In Az summer time is night hunting time! Edit: this is dangerous but it will allow focus to a very small area. When the sun is out you can see everything which might make one wonder around. Night time you can only see whats in front of you so it allows for a more focused dig. I have found lots of gold when i "snipe" this way.
  19. Always nice to see a thank you post...
  20. I didn't even think of a PI detector until down the road. Just remember to invest wisely. Dont spend more than you have to. Also, most people keep their vlf machines when they bump up to a PI. For me , I got the gold bug 2 for myself, the gm1000 came shortly after. Sdc2300 around 1 year later.
