  1. I’ll be leaving in a couple of hours so I’ll see you guys tomorrow afternoon. Gotta get the permit from their office in the morning once I arrive since I can’t order it online.
  2. Okay so right before N. Mine Road when the pavement ends on Castle Hot Springs??
  3. Very nice 👍🏻. That gives me hope that it is possible to find gold nuggets w/the NOX 600.
  4. nice color! Maybe I might be able to find some of that soon.
  5. I just watched Bill’s Outing information video on YouTube today and I would like to go but I have no transportation. If anyone from the San Diego, Ca. area that is going and has extra room for one more person and is willing to take me, I can help with gas $$. Let me know, thanks.

  6. I went with a friend of mine to a permission location in the middle of suburbia at a early 1900’s dairy farm surrounded by cookie cutter houses. We did a two day hunt and one the first day, my friend found 2 pieces of a silver coin purse and I found 2 wheat cents. The first wheat cent is a 1929-S and the second one we can’t get a date due to the condition of the coin, but we think it might be 1929 or 1939. One the second day my friend wanted to find more of the silver coin purse which she did and continued where she left off at from the day before. I continued around the trees next to the
  7. So far I’ve taken my detector out once and found only bullets in the crevices along a river bed near my house. I need to venture out to either Imperial County, Ca. or the gold fields of Arizona to get a good feel and further my gold fever
  8. Thank you, you’ve been helpful. I guess I wasn’t searching for the right website. Plus I was able to get a hold of them thru Facebook. KG though it was funny.
  9. How do you like your X-Terra 705? What type of hunts do you use it in?
  10. I like the idea too. It would be so awesome to see youngsters get off of the couch and put down the video games, cell phones, facebook, etc. and get them outside for real fun and adventures. Just like when I was a kid back in the 80’s. The Goonies was and will always be my favorite treasure hunting movie and when I was a kid all I wanted to do was to find one eyed willies pirate ship and his loot. I adventually moved to Astoria Oregon to try to relive my childhood dreams and Now I’m down in Southern California hunting for lost treasures even if it’s a newly dropped treasure.
  11. Anyone ever seen that TV Show “Diggers” with KG and the Ringmaster? I’m sure most of you have. I did my first hunt of the new year 2019 at a local beach and found this token. At first I thought it was a quarter until I got home. It’s bigger than a quarter and it was crusted just like all of the clad that you would normally find during the winter months at the beaches. When I started to clean or wipe the reverse I noticed the words “Trade Dollar” on it and then the words “ATC” along with an eagle. Flipped over to the obverse it was a little harder to read but the date was easier to read, i
  12. I find that No Man’s Land is the best place to find a lot of treasures. While No Man’s Land is usually a huge part of real estate, most of these guys or shall I say all of whom I’ve seen only do the from the towel line to about 10’ into the water.
  13. I do a lot of beach hunting in Southern California and I’ve detected parts of the beach that others hit up hard (like a dozen or more guys from a club or Few other youtubers meeting up) and I would still find targets. Whether it’s junk or not, You just can’t get all of the targets every time you go out. There is this one old fellow who I’ve met and every time he sees me out on the beach. He is going all over the place extremely fast like a tweaker on meth and his coil is always swinging up past his knees. I told him you might want to keep that coil closer to the ground and swing a little
  14. Hello folks, My name is Robert, a.k.a. wygold. Some of you may have seen my YouTube channel “wygold’s metal detecting adventures”. I’ve been metal detecting going on my third year. My very first metal detector and the current one I use is the Minelab X-Terra 705 gold pack. I have three metal detectors, 2 of them are Minelabs and the third is a Garrett BPO which some old timers in the hobby would call it a wall hanger. the BPO was manufactured the year I was born and by golly it still functions perfectly. Most or shall I say 99% of my metal detecting is beach detecting and while I’v
