  1. Prayers for a quick recovery!
  2. When I watched Bill in action with the monster I thought this is the perfect detector for testing new areas. My intention was not to find hundreds of dinks but looking for food for my gold well. In my travels in the Superstitions I run into things or friends whisper in my ear. Many locations to test lots of gold to find. Plus most spots are not junked up. That and I need to find the source for this stuff. Couple fingers have pointed the way. A light hot unit is the way to go.
  3. Picked one up from Bill today. After putting it together off I went to the tailing pile in my backyard. Two tiny pieces of lead then a flake of gold. I'm happy! Always remember Mike's beer can nugget.
  4. If you open to offers I'd offer $550 total
  5. I'll take 115 any day over 20 below
  6. They cut that scene. I had to show Eric how to get it in there. He does not accept advice.
  7. I'm not getting in a copter with a Scottsdale pilot who wears stretch pants. Plus I'm not flying into those mountains anyway. There are better wYs to die. The Bowie was my Vietnam knife. Good for cutting off snake heads. Come to think of it people's heads too. Oh I could tell you some stories!
  8. I also enjoyed the show. I also don't know how it was edited. By the commercial it appears I lose it and start screaming a Wayne this Sun. I did. Forgot all about being filmed. He said something that set me off. Oh well.
  9. Did not know him but read his books
  10. I have that book Fred. My password was not working them bam! What's funny you read the books then later become friends with the guys that wrote them. You then get a different story
  11. Ron I think old Terry is pissed because he could not find a speck of gold back in the mountains and I found so much. By the way your one of my all time nugget shooter Hero's. When I was back in Pennsylvania I paid close attention to your posts. Still do.
  12. Ill be hanging out helping the club at the gold show in Mesa. Stop by the GPAP booth It's very odd watching yourself on a TV commercial
  13. I'm confused on what the date is. I can't miss the gold show. Then Sun Feb 8 Legend of Superstition Mountain on the History Channel. Can't miss myself on TV It's been awhile since I've been to LSD. Been working my claims in the Superstitions
  14. I remember back when I was living in Pennsylvania reading posts on this forum. I've learned a ton for you guys and I thank you all. I never asked a question that went unanswered. I've done well prospecting thanks to all that great advise.
  15. Except for the outer fringes of the wilderness area there is not much gold there. Lot of dutchhunter holes though. You never know though.
  16. I don't want to start a gold rush. Perhaps I should shut up. Remember gold is where you find it. The rarest Arizona gold is from the Superstitions. You just don't see it. I sell some to the club for raffles and the members go nuts over it.
  17. The wilderness area is in the national forest. No roads in the wilderness so they had to keep sections open so you could drive to the trails. The Superstitions are not just the volcano. Tom is a great guy. He is a close friend and mentor.
  18. Homefire I know of gold found on both the W and E side recently. The volcano itself is pretty much barren. John Mitchell wrote a story on the LDM that got it right.
  19. Ill try that with the 2000. I had it out there and was standing on a huge bolder 30 ft up. The bolder let loose and down I went. I landed on a pile of bolders. Still had the detector on my arm. Snapped the fiberglass shaft and bent the arm cuffs flat. That almost killed me. Hit so hard my military pants split. My partner thought I was dead. I jumped up and said time to go home! Nature put the gold there. One spot you use a hammer drill to get the material loose. It's packed in a wall of ancient river rock about 30 ft high. Some 4 foot round. The best gold is under and behind those big boulders.
  20. You need to be very carefull in the Superstitions. I came close to death three times in one month back there. Plus you have nutballs living back there. Get near their spot and off goes your head and you end up in lion poo. I have no problem though I carry a bigger blade. I've often thought it would be a great place for a serial killer. Come to think of it, itt was in the past. My friend Tom Kollenborn gave me a copy of his book on the subject that lists every death or event in the mountains. Lots of headless prospectors found over the years back in there. Some old bones still turning up. What's funny they were all looking in the wrong spot.
  21. Who said I was in the wilderness area. The lost Dutchman was found. Called the Pitt mine. It is in the wilderness area and was cleaned out buy a couple well known area business men. I've seen a piece of the ore. Nice! I did a little nosing around.
  22. There is a reason why Waltz had a drywasher made!
  23. I should say one thing. I've learned a great deal from Chris Ralph's book. Fists Full Of Gold. Thanks Chris for the fist full of gold! Every time without fail I find the answer there.
  24. Tomahawk from the French and Indian war period. 1750's from a settler fort site in Pennsylvania
