  1. A few days ago it was 115 in the shade, here at the house, [Quartzsite] I have seen it a lot hotter.

    We had a power outage a couple days ago. The storm took out 17 power polls between here and Parker.

    Power went off in the evening, was off all night, all the next day and came back on at 3:00 AM in the morning.

    The house was starting to heat up just a wee bit.

  2. Very nice indeed, Ron,

    Say's a lot about that detector in the hands of a man that knows how to use it.

    It cooled off a bit so I was going to go out Sat.. First thing that happened was a stone dead Batt.. in the quad. Guess its good that I didn't go because by the time I got through fooling with that thing, the sky opened up and really dumped, also a lot of 1/2" hail.

    Bought a new one today so should be good for go.

  3. Hey Ron,

    Very nice finds.

    Awhile back I found one exactly like that one, in a spot between here and the Wick... where I have taken quite a few nuggets from and it was in A-1 condition, except for a bit of rust scale.

    Good hunting.

  4. Old Salt,

    I used to run a GB and then the GBll, still have the GBll. It's a good machine, wouldnt be without it.

    I have worked many many place's in Az. with it and yes, sometimes you will come across an area that you cannot work with it. I then switch to the ML3500 with the mono coil and if the ground is still to noisy I will switch to a DD coil. With that combo I can work just about any area.

    I probably have that a little backwards, as I usually hunt with the ML, but once in awhile I get lazy and hunt with the GBll.

    If I find a crumb patch I stick with the GB as it will pick up very small stuff. I have weighed gold down to 1/10 of one grain that I have found with it. I suspect that some was smaller, however I don't bother to weight that stuff anymore.

    I also have the 10 inch coil and there is a bit more depth but not much. As micro said, you can cover a lot more ground with it and it will also find very small gold. With the 10" coil you will probably notice a bit more depth on the larger nuggets than with the 6" coil.

  5. Hey Bill,

    Since you are going to be in the Quartzsite area, just wanted to tell you that there is no use trying to go to my super super secret patch. :icon_mrgreen:

    Snakes are thick, scorpion's are by the bucket-ful, Illegals are elbow to elbow and all packing, the road is washed out so you have to hike 3 mi. in and 3 out, and the ground is so hard you can't stick a pick in it. :grrr01:

    If none of the above gets you then the Injun's will. :laught16:

    Beside's, as Ron say's, I have already found all the big one's. There's nothing left that is over an ounce. :rofl2: :ROFL:

    Have fun and good luck.

    Bob T.
