  1. Nice to see Bill has a cable stabilizer on that unit too.
  2. Hello Fred, What’s weird is the detector would give the dead battery sound and I would check the display and it was blank still working but blank, power down and back up the display would come back and show battery voltage at 7.6v detect for a while and low battery tone again but was still operating fine w/ blank screen like its in a power saving mode.
  3. I made it out to the desert for a hunt before the rain fell and managed a 1.5 gram nugget, lots of lead too. My battery didn’t last very long either, gave it a half hr charge on the car charger and was good for a while longer. I will need to make something up to drain it down and cycle it a few times to see if it comes back to a full day of hunting.
  4. Hello Ron, Glad to see you got GE runnng again! I'm running pro on the Mac and it has some minor glitches once in a while that will drive you nuts, I have been using it for fishing, using overlays of the lakes contour map to locate potential hot spots. I recently bought a BU-353S4 GPS receiver from Amazon, plugs into the USB port and in GE just goto tools and hit GPS, choose realtime select NMEA check the box to follow the path and hit start, it will show your position on the ground and follow you. If you clear your cache first and then zoom to the area you will be at you won't need a internet connection in the field, if your in cell range with the ipad I create a wifi hotspot and connect the computer to that. Great Tool!
  5. WTG Adam, good to hear you all had a great time.
  6. Nice one Adam, don't try to figure out where they should be because they can be anywhere.
  7. Way to go Adam, I thought you were doing yard work!
  8. Shep, First off, glad to hear you are OK. That scenario you described could have went horribly worse than what it did and you are very lucky to be talking about it. Stay safe Shep, recoup and see you in the Gold fields.
  9. Thanks Guys, It was fun while it lasted. Andy, not family just friends.
  10. Thanks Skip, we all know that they all don't go like that.
  11. Thanks Mike, haven't heard from you in a while. How have you been? Getting out to hunt at all?
  12. Thanks Tom and Luke, it was fun while it lasted, there was a lot of digging involved for the first 30 and that was in a 20' stretch of wash then expanded to maybe 50-60' and nothing downstream of that at least what the 20" coil wouldn't find. We all wish that every little wash we hunt would produce like that one, thats just not the way it is though :( .
  13. Kim and I did a little camping and exploring out west and hit a few pieces, 8.4 grammer started things off right and then I found a 1.5 gram piece in a new wash and got Kim in there with her SDC 2300 she pulled 35 nuggets that weekend, 30 the first day. We worked the wash hard and managed 48 nuggets, Kim 44 and myself 4 for about 12.5 grams plus the 8.4 grammer and a smaller one from another wash, total take for a couple weekends was 22.6 grams.
  14. Way to go Tom, those dry spells can really start to make a guy stink and I'm glad you got rid of that smell.
  15. Looks like everyone had a good time, good job guys!
  16. WTG Luke, Nice First Greaterville nuggets!
  17. Great Job Ron & Dodie, Just wondering if one book will feature "Uncle Ron's secret nugget patches in AZ." ?
  18. WTG Luke, those are some nice ones, once you think you have the area cleaned out bump the sensitivity and hit it again.
  19. WTG Bill, you found some at least, I got the skunk this weekend.
  20. WTG guy's! You deserve every one of those for hunting in those conditions.
