    White's Gold Master V-Sat detector for sale $250

    I love the V-SATS....They are awesome and I've owned about a half dozen of them ...I always buy them when the price is right! ... Cheers, Unc
  2. Here's a cool video about where I grew up in the Death Valley desert area...Only difference is that when I grew up there, there were no black people...My dad was the head coach and athletic director of the high school for many years and I spent many hours helping tend the all dirt football field... Cheers, Unc

  4. Wow, Doc, I forgot about the baby oil and iodine "tanner"... That's what we used growing up on the SW edge of Death Valley, where 125 degrees + were the norm for 3 months of the year...Thanks for the reminder...Cheers, Unc

    Newcomers beware

    After years of regular placer mining, both dredging and hard core commercial mining, during which I found many pounds of gold, I bought a Gold Bug 2 in 1994 ... After that it was 6+ years of not finding gold with a detector...I could very successfully pan, crevice snipe, sluice, trommel, etc., but I couldn't find anything but junk with my detector ... Finally, I was out at LSD just after moving to AZ from far Northern CA and I hit on a 2+ pennyweight beautimus slug ... Immediately after that the flood gates opened and I started finding gold darn near everytime I went out ... What was the difference? ATTITUDE! I reached a point when I first started detecting where I did not believe I could detect gold so I couldn't... As most folks discover, you can only do what you believe you can do...Change your attitude and change your latitude... If you have not done so ( or even if you have) get together with an experienced and successful detector prospector and pay attention...Here's a picture of my first detected nugget and just a few that I detected after I figured out I had to believe in my self... Cheers, Unc
