  1. Interesting thread here...By the way, I ALWAYS use discrimination...my discriminator is between my ears and is quite reliable...works with all my detectors...and my calendar...
  2. Been there, done that as far as weathered in....Got stuck in Fairbanks for a month in 1980 due to bad weather when I and my partners were up doing a claim assessment on Preacher Creek below Circle City...I grew to hate Alaska on that trip....Won't even mention those monster AK skeeters! ... Great Alaskan Bush Company was pretty good, but in AK a guy can even get bored staring at Alaskan Bushes!
  3. Holy crap, Billy...Been hunting that wash for 20 years ... Happy for you but bummed I can't get out there right now! WTG!
  4. Gold prices (about $250/oz when I started in the 1970's) & detector design, especially Minelab, but also the exit of White's....White's had great detectors for the time, but technology just outran them.....
  5. Glad to see you're back posting, JB...I hope you're doing OK!...Cheers, Unc
  6. Great memories right there....Thanks for sharing such good times...Love the outings!!!! Happy Thanksgiving for everyone!! Cheers, Yer Unc in the Dubyah!
  7. Chickens sometime eat the shiny gold, I've spent a good bit of time on my former ranch panning chickenpoop...Never found anything but up in the Siskiyou County Courthouse, the gold display (mostly since stolen) had some nuggets found in chicken gizzard and chicken poop...Looked just as good as all the rest...
  8. Product looks great, Doc, another winner...But I think "Queegle" is a nasty word...Seriously, I've heard it before in a certain, unrelated context.
  9. Great nugget, Luke! WTG! What kinda bait did you use?
  10. Donavan has several youtube vids...This is one of my favorites:
  11. Didn't see this thread before, a very happy birthday to you Shep!!! I guess you are all moved in to the big AZ??????
  12. Yes, our little back yard water hole has dozens of both cottontails and jackrabbits...They all seem very healthy and are reproducing like crazy...Hope they don't catch it...I love my back yard bunnies!
  13. I remember Reg back in the day a decade or so ago...Spent a good bit of time swapping thoughts with him...Great guy, and I'm sorry to learn he passed...Condolences to his family and friends...Cheers, Unc...
