  1. Hey Mike... I'll go $150 on the VSAT...I've owned a bunch of them, well, 3 or 4, and I love screwing around with them...Killer on shallow, and I don't even know why I'm interested since I have more detectors than I need...But if you'll go for it, I'll buy it ... I've always payed $125, but I guess inflation... Cheers, Ron

      Hi Ron ... Somehow missed my notification on this. Yup ... Can and will do it. I should be down this weekend at Stanton with Bill and Tammy doing some instruction for the LDMA/GPAA group. I'll bring it with me and we can meet up at some point for the exchange. One more out of the inventory with two more to go and then I will only have 4 machines in the end! LOL!

  2. I think this and the others are posted "tongue in cheek"....But IDing meteorites by ear is a breakthrough! ... ... Cheers, Unc
  3. Great pix, Tom...Dodie and I still are out here at the Q camp...No nuggets for us...Everyone except us and Shep are gone...Very nice out here this bright Monday morning...Cool and fun outing...Cheers, Unc
  4. Dodie & Robert and I (and Patch) will be there around mid-day...Dying to try out y new GM1000!!!!!! See you all there! ... Cheers, Unc
  5. Yo All...Late Tues. afternoon I heard some unusual sounds coming from our backyard water hole ... We've had these critters often but never this many Javalinas at once! The babies born a few months ago are growing fast....Cheers, Unc
  6. I have owned both the GMT and the GB2 for about 20 years...The GB2 is excellent for fly poop nugs and bigger...The GMT is good for dinks, and, once you've put enough hours on it, you'll find it will go deeper than the GB2 and has the added advantage of of a visual ID...Once you figure that out, it also works great on coins in the park and all goodies on the beach...The GB2 has a major learning curve and you have to train your ear but when you do, you can use sound to tell difference between birdshot and golden dinks...Both of mine are well worn and I usually carry 3 or 4 detectors...My ML GPX 4500, SD 2100, ML Gold Monster, GB2 and GMT...This gives me wide latitude according conditions... My 2 cents...Cheers, Unc
  7. Do a streak test and check to see if it's magnetic...interesting find! WTG...Cheers, Unc
  8. Looks like a fun hunt and some nice little scores...WTG...Cheers, Unc
  9. Joining Old Tom wishing your a great "high-flying" birthday...Cheers, Unc
  10. Hey, B-Bob ... Like you (I think) many parts of these treasure stories are seemingly farfetched ... But after years of observing a close friend searching, he's brought enough evidence to see that these treasure hunts can often be the real deal ... I do know one person who acquired a "Kino" gold bar and told me of many amazing finds back in the day ... Of course, anyone who actually scored a treasure is not going to 'splain the where, what and when of such things...But it is exciting to know about first hand and not just some story or legend! Cheers, Unc
  11. I know someone who has been chasing the spanish and mexican signs and symbols and dog symbols are very common finds ... The searcher has followed clues and dug down to find dog heads carved into the bedrock ... Other symbols too, like lightning bolts and hearts, etc. ... I was surprised to learn how many covert treasure hunters are running around the desert ... Amazing ! Cheers, Unc
  12. The larger ones look like the Wickenburg Meteorite, an L6 chondrite...I've found quite a few of them and those look identical...Good job ... Cheers, Unc
  13. Nice gold and a beautiful chondrite! Can't beat a day like that! WTG! Cheers, Unc
  14. This week Donavon's first single, Born to Love You, hit #2 on the European country music charts, way ahead of several very famous country artists...He's going to be big and it could not happen to a more positive, humble and deserving person...Cheers, Unc
  15. Is this leaverite (Dennis, Rob's partner) or someone new who took his name? Thanks, Unc
  16. I'd suggest pairing your new machine with a Nuggetfinder 9x14 elliptical mono coil...My fav and most productive is one of those, even though it's a 10+year old original Fiberglas unit...Found $thousands with that set up...Good luck with it and post your finds ... Cheers, Unc
  17. Got my 4500 from Bill about 3+ years ago and it's well paid for itself...Good choice ...Cheers, Unc
  18. Prayers for a successful and fast healing surgery! ..Cheers, Unc
  19. Happy Birthday, Tammy...Big change you made 3 years ago! Have a golden week (or even golden day, if you rinse the mud off) ... Cheers, Unc
  20. Happy Birthday, Gary, but so sorry you had to take care of your cat today...But 19 years is a good long life for a cat and I'm sure it passed with great love for you...So sorry, Ron
  21. Happy Birthday Dave...make it golden...Cheers, Unc
