    GPX4500 on the way!

    I'm hoping to use that ability to my advantage. Detector arrived yesterday, and I got the battery charged, and everything adjusted to fit me. The instructions aren't kidding, it took all of 8 hours to charge from dead flat. Today should be amusing. In keeping with "new gear rules", that apply to every hobby, it's blowing 20+mph here, and 35 degrees. A wise man might wait for better weather. Not gonna happen. It's likely be a short day, but I will go out for an hour or two. Instruction manual in on hand, detector in the other, and dressed up like Kenny from South Park. Lol Regards, Kyle

    Nice job!

    Thanks for the tips, Dave. The two club claims I have been working have been hammered by every guy with a detector, but of the many detectors I have seen out here, only one PI machine. There are a few "bomb craters" around, so I'm not the first guy on scene with a PI detector, but hopefully there's still a nugget or two left! Regards, Kyle

    Good to hear. Maybe I'll hit the gym a little, also. Twelve ounce curls don't seem to be as effective as I had hoped. I have been looking at hip sticks, and figuring out how to roll my own, but I think I'll hold off and see how it goes. Regards, Kyle

    Thanks for the tip. How do these machines balance with the larger coils? Do they become shoulder killing, nose heavy pigs? I haven't been too kind to either of my shoulders over the years, but I've avoided surgery so far. I'm happy to keep it that way! Regards, Kyle

    That could work, though getting close to her mouth when she is holding something shiny is a good way to get myself bitten... Maybe I'll use my water bottle. Kyle

    Thanks for the tip, Ron. I keep reading about the Nuggetfinder coils. Once I master the basics, I will likely get one of those, and a smaller 8"(?) as well. I will definitely post any gold I find. After I let my Wife drool on it, you guys are second in line! Regards, Kyle

    Thanks guys. The 4500 seemed like the best balance of $ spent vs. capability gained. I've learned, sometimes the hard way, that it's usually the man, not the machine, that makes 90% of the difference. Hand me a top of the line race bike, and put me out there with a national level pro, who's riding an old beater. Who's gonna win? Yup. Been there, got lapped, in fact The new toy will keep me busy for a long time. I just have to wait for UPS to get here on Monday. Funny, when I was a little kid, Santa had a sleigh. Now he drives a brown diesel truck! Regards, Kyle

    GPX4500 on the way!

    Super stoked to try this new machine! I ordered my new machine through Bill, and should get it on the UPS truck Monday. I did as much research as I could, short of actually trying one out. In the end, I couldn't justify the extra $1300 for a 5000, and the 7000 is just not on the table, at eight grand. I am expecting a monster of a learning curve, but it looks manageable, after reading the manual a few times. Not to mention all the great info on this forum, YouTube, etc. If you have any tips for someone brand new to this machine, I'm all ears. I know nuggets won't leap out of the ground, until I put the coil in the right place, no matter what machine I am swinging. Between the new 4500, and the Equinox I already have, I will not be able to blame the machines for a lack of nuggets. At least I will get in better shape digging deeper holes Regards, Kyle

    wireless GM1000 headset?

    Yeah, lag would be a bad thing... The transmitter I posted above is listed as "APT-X low latency". If you get a transmitter with that rating, it "should" be as good as the Equinox 800, without the WMA module. I'm not an electronics guy, so save your receipts... Lol Good luck!

    Bill, I've had these in my Amazon cart for a while, but have not ordered them yet. I don't see why it wouldn't work, unless it caused some weird EMI. Can always ship it right back, if it does. There might be an off the shelf solution at a store, but I haven't looked into that. Good luck!

    Gold in black rock?

    Not sure what it was. I tried a super strong magnet, no attraction. It broke easily, when squeezed with pliers. No gold inside though. Regards, Kyle

    Snakes and headphones

    Some good information here, and cautionary tales, as well. I've only had a couple run in's with rattlers. One surprised me under my truck, in my driveway. He stuck his head out from under the truck, as I went to get in the rig to leave for work. He looked at me, I looked at him, and we left in opposite directions. I recall calmly stepping back, but my neighbor saw the whole thing, and has a different story.... The other was close. I took the Wife and teenage kids to Palouse falls State park, in Wa. ( GO there if you get a chance, it's worth the trip) We were walking down a two rut trail, and one buzzed me right at my feet, from under a sagebrush bush. My stepson was half a step in front of me. I reflexively shoved him away, and stepped back. Mr. Snake headed off the other way. I got sloppy. I had no reason to not be in the center of the trail. Getting lucky, instead of smart isn't a good way to be... Lesson learned. I'm not paranoid about snakes, but I give them a wide berth, and a lot of respect! Regards, Kyle

    That's not a great visual! I'll add that to my list of things to keep an eye on. Did not know Rattlers climbed trees. Kyle

    Sad, but true, Mike. I have had more run-ins over the years with bad humans, than bad animals. Kyle
