  1. Jase is my favorite of the Dynasty crew! His dry humor is very much like mine ... he could very well have come from northern New England but I know he didn't!
  2. Well not exactly a big welcome back to the gold but the Monster did not disappoint! My first trip back out since my knee injury and 2 hours was enough. Oh ... Almost forgot ... the nugget was a whopping 0.24 grains! LOL! Paid for the gas to get out of the driveway but that is about it! Bigger and better next time!
  3. The Beach Master himself has struck gold! Nice!
  4. Rain up here has brought more water flow over Coyote Spring Road than I have ever seen in my 11 years here in PV. We have had some real gully washers here over the last few days.
  5. That's a great specimen Bill. Well done. Can't wait for doctor to release me to do more outside ... aka desert walking. Been able to walk about a mile on the flat lately without lots of knee pain so doctor says August 1 I can do short 'over-land' walks. For me that means I get to swing my Monster again!!
  6. Never Ending Wash is truly never ending. Was wondering when the GPX6000 would make it over there. Nice finds!
  7. Belated welcome back to the forum Bill. I haven't been on as much this year either. But the season is getting closer for me ... when it cools just a bit I will be back after it. Hope to catch you out there one of these days.
  8. Hey Bill ... Cheaper by far than the latest kayak I just ordered from Old Town, Sportsman Big Water 132 PDL, that won't be delivered until October! Fishing season is over by then ... at least the tournament season! But that's OK ... gold season is well into it by then. LOL!
  9. I am the oldest of 4 siblings! 2 sisters below me and a baby brother ... all of us are now well into our 60's with me at 72. I love both of my sisters dearly even though we don't always agree ... in fact rarely but that's a story for another day! many times I have been called various names by them 'Dick' being one of the milder terms of 'endearment'! LOL!
  10. I'm way late to the topic but just for the record I don't feel that even a locked password protected separate forum for politics would work without repercussions of some sort because like most politics folks have their ideas and most aren't movable if at all! I would not have voted 'for' such a forum. I vote 'NO'!
  11. Almost 20 years since my first intro to gold detecting ... had been detecting back east back in 1988. From finding my detector from back east ... White's DFX ... not working well at all in gold country to my first true gold detector the Minelab GP3000, then the GPX 4500 and 5000, Minelab, GPZ7000 and a few others in between. A Gold Bug Pro, a Minelab SDC 2300, Minelab Equinox 800 and finally my current favorite for gold the Minelab GM1000. A HUGE change from the 3000 to the 7000 in depth and sensitivity to small gold to say nothing about those beautiful larger nuggets we all seek ... and then there is the rejection of mineralization ... AKA hot/cold rocks. WOW ... All of that in a mere 20 years! And now Minelab comes out with the GPX6000 that from what little I have seen from videos is better than all of those others in its own way. Much of my collection is gone now for one reason or another but I may just have to add one last detector to my herd. That 6000 is pulling at my need strings! LOL! Have a great day guys and gals and be safe out in the desert this summer!
  12. You seem to be the exception to the rule!
  13. BUMP! Deals #2(GPX4500 detector) and #3(Coils, shafts and more) still available.
  14. If it still works well and sounds as if it is I would keep it. And I would also be looking for a good GPX5000 if I could not see to paying $6000(USA) for a new GPX6000. From what little I have seen on videos so far the GPX6000 is picking up gold that all the other detectors have been swung over and missed. So yes the upgrades are well woth the choice to upgrade your equipment.
