Aloha Phunkyone...welcome to the forum and to Nevada...My name is Guido and I am in Las Vegas and like to detect around Gold Basin a two hour drive from Vegas and if you like one day I can take you out there to show how the game is played. There are many here that have a lot of experience and knowledge and would be happy to share what the know. This is a rewarding hobby if you have time, patience, perseverance and persistence. I will be going out about three times this week alone. Guido

I am Central Vegas...Yes its a all day event, and in the winter its even shorter due to shorter sunsets. So you are only availible this coming weekend for now? I maybe in Arizona this coming weekend Wickenburg AZ. I plan to go out tomorrow and Wednesday for now, if not I will let you know. As for Parks dont care for them much. They dont like metal detector in National Parks, Wilderness, Preserves, Reservations or people having fun in general. Guido

Hey guys, my name is Landon and I am a vegas local also.. If you'll want to make it a threesome sometime, count me in. Ive been on the forums a few months now taking in as much info as possible tryin to learn the ropes. Theres alot of great people on here. I currently have a whites gmt, and get out as much as i can. I was scouting the Johhny area a couple days ago, and plan on hitting gold basin in the next couple of days. Ive yet to come up with any gold out there but im die hard at it and will continue searching, plus the meteorites keep it exciting. Eric, since your into reptiles, you would have probably been as shocked as i was to find a Gopher snake in december on a 45 degree day. It might have been on the edge of its den, but i didnt have a flashlight. i did get some good pics though. I never thought id see that. Anyhow, Im becoming more and more passionate with this hobby and it would be great to have some fellow Metal dectorists to get out with. Feel free to shoot me an email if either of you wanna hook up.

Happy Holidays!

Landon

hey thanks I would love to go but I have to work these next few days as I am forced to take off from the 24-4.....I really appreciate the offer.If anyone is going out on these days let me know,so I can get a baby sitter.It's hard to have a hobby with a wife and three year old.I hardly get to see my wife because we work opposite schedueles so every chance we get to spend together we usually do.....and What more can I say bout my rugrat...she's daddy's girl.I just cant wait till she gets older and will be able to go out with me.SHe already helps me with all my reptiles!....Once I can save up and get a quad im sure they will some along that way they can stay busy!Been hard too just moving here....and getting settled in.......any way nuff bout my sad story.LOL Im looking foward to meeting you guys soon and going out on a excursion! Mahalo nui loa! Thanks very much!

Aloha guys,

Aloha Eric and all you guys from Hawaii. Good to see a lot of Hawaiians here in Vegas finally! I also have a GMT and would love to get out with any other GMT users. I have been meteorite hunting both Gold Basin and Franconia for a couple of years now (you can check my old posts for pics) and would love to show you guys that the Aloha Spirit is still with me.

Unfortunately my days off now are Tuesday thru thursday, unless I call in sick.rolleye0012[1].gif Keep on checking the meteorite forum section for other guys who hunt out at these two places. Gold may be fun BUT meteorites are even more exciting when you can locate one. After all, they did come from outer space!jaw-dropping[1].gif

Mele Kalikimaka and a Hauoli Makahiki Hou!

Aloha and be safe this holiday season.

Stan aka Kaimi

The ACE 250 is agreat for coins but not for meteorites, it goes right over them....I use mine for coins but a GMT is a GREAT for both gold and meteorites , does pretty good on lead and trash too.. :rasberry:

Hi everyone, I'm from Henderson and would like to join you sometime at Gold Basin. I have a Gold Bug and my son has a Gold Master. We were out to Gold Basin for the first time in November, without any luck. Since then, I have purchased a fragment of a Gold Basin meteorite so that we can better tune our detectors for the next trip. lvfireman, the Jan. dates sound feasible for me, as I will be in Calif. from Dec. 24 - 30 for the holidays. Looking forward to meeting you all.

So cool how such a simple topic by eric brought all of us vegas guys out of the woodwork. I'm excited to get out.. the more the marrier, I'm looking foward to meeting you all. If we wanna set a date, jan 2 looks like it meets most of our availabilities. Its a sat.. guido, if you wanna make a run before then I could prob do the 29th also.. ofcourse anyone else is welcome as well. Ill continue to check this forum but any of you feel free to give me a call or shoot me a txt.

Stan, I took my dad to osceola.. we had such a blast he bought his own detector the next week.. so were in your same boat. Also, were hitting up ely nv for the ice fishing derby jan 15th-17th for some fishing and really just an all out party the whole weekend.. its a blast every year..plus well be detecting the lower ocseola area which has unbelievable potential but a large area.. anyone is welcome to join.. 10 plus guys already..

Take care everyone

Hey Eric.. also check out desert outfitters on sirius ave. Just east of valley view. I purchased my gmt from kellycode but had I known about desert outfitters I would have bought there.. just a suggestion. They were very helpful and they know a lot about our area. They offer great maps aswell.
