    Ignored Users Feature???

    Somehow I think I missed something. Not that I mind much. That is a hilarious post B.B.

    Are you running on tired tires?

    I certainly wouldn't wait for a state vehicle inspection to flag my old tires. They are not the ones driving my car at freeway speeds, I would rather take responsiblity for my own safety.

    Good to know you are out Fred and that you haven't lost your touch. Nice going.

    Opal hunt in the snow.

    That is a cool video. Have always loved opals especially with a black matrix like those. Thanks for sharing. Stay warm.

    Hey Bob, So it's important to remember just because you don't believe in UFO's doesn't mean they don't exist ;) You know me a little and hopefully enough to know that I would not just randomly say something like what I did, if it had not happened. I hope one day I can chat with you in person about it and although it might not change your mind - I know better than trying that - at least you could hear my account in person, it was pretty cool. Anyway the water sharing still goes if the pb&j isn't stale. regards...

    I too had an experience with UFO's that definitely opened my eyes...(the military was not involved though.)

    Yes. I am the same. Hope to get out detecting again soon now that the weather has dropped below spontaneous combustion levels.

    B'rock Robert said: "... Magicians and fake meteorite salesmen dwell in the gap between perception and reality..." One of my favorite gaps for sure. Hope all is well Bob.

    How about this one?? (mineral mystery)

    wonder if it was 'art glass' that melted in a fire or something..

    Is that a go-bag for the O.K. Correl or a shoot-out with UFO's? (joke). I have some water for your go-bag Bob if you save half a sandwich (serious).

    Want to put in a quick note of clarification here that there are several species of Californian's roaming about, true Shep is one of them, but...

    Wyoprospector said, "... And as I stated before, I always planted a nugget I bought (at the now closed Miners Shop in Wickenburgh) when I got to a new area and ran my Detector over it at several depths to get a feel for the response. You can't say that is not a good practice... That is only good practice to hear if your detector is actually running. To tune the detector for, and to hear gold that has not been dug up, is another matter entirely. That is why it is good to watch what someone else, who has found gold, is doing. You will see (and probably hear), the difference right away.

    I would definitely hook up with that fellow with the SDC. You will understand right away why we are recommending Minelabs. good luck

    Wait, Jimmy M is Jim Mccullough? THE Jim McCullough? How have you been Jim? Are you still roaming around out in that fabulous Pinto mountain/Twenty-nine Palms area? I will always remember that it was you who basically introduced me to one of the most haunting and evocative areas in the southern desert a whole bunch of years ago. I have a funny memory of how that first meeting with you went, and since we're among friends (mostly), I'm gonna remind you of it. I had, I think emailed you and asked for a phone number saying I was a new detector prospector - I had dredged for 6 years of summers in the Sierras but in the desert that didn't count - and would you consider meeting up with me and showing me around the Pinto Mountains? Do you remember? You kindly said yes and we make a plan to meet somewhere in Twenty-Nine Palms or thereabouts. Now I'd been out into the Pinto's a few times and I know it's got lots of places to make mistakes if you don't have the right vehicle or the right driving style, so I am slightly nonplused when I see you pull up in an older sedan of some type, obviously two-wheel drive and fairly low slung - but I figure well that means we will probably stay on the Gold Crown Rd., the main road out there and so I park my 4x4 SUV and climb in. I cannot adequately describe the tour you took me on, or the roads (well some would call them roads, they were barely tracks), hauling ass though this wild place commenting at almost every hillock and gully pointing out where you had previously found gold and when - in this low-slung two-wheel drive sedan trailing a huge plume of dust. I was enthralled and amazed and to this day I still remember your afternoon ride full of good humor and experience and knowledge. I thought you should know. Thanks again.
