Gold Basin Outing

Recommended Posts

Thanks Bill for putting the outing together. We had a blast! It was great putting a face to some of the forum names. Everyone was more than helpful. The wind was a little tough and unfortunately we got the skunk but no complaints, it was an overall awesome weekend. Cant wait to do it again..

I totally agree. :thumbsupanim

Great time! Nice meeting everyone.

Good to meet you and your dad, Landon. Sorry we left without saying goodbyes. We hunted a couple of hours in the morning. Found two more pieces of foil and had one really nice signal that turned out to be a bullet fragment. :wah2:

When we got back to camp everyone was out :head: . So, we loaded up and hit the road at 10:00. Got home at 7:30 that night just beating the snow.

Hope to meet up with you guys soon,

Steve

Nice meeting you and your boy Steve. I was trying to get your attention as you pulled away early that morning. I didn't notice you only had one detector until you quaded by.. we had an extra gmt you could've used so you both could swing something. Glad to hear you'll had a good time.. next time we meet up the feel free to use it anytime.

Yup nice to have met some new faces and though this was not really an outing like we are used to it was great. Sometimes it is fun to let folks know there will be a few forum members at a hunt and see who shows...

Had a great time and see you all next time...Bill

Thanks for the offer Landon, Austin hasn't quite caught the metal detecting bug yet. He's happy riding the quad, hammering rocks with his rock hammer and chasing lizards for now. I imagine that when I start finding some gold that may all change. He does enjoy camping and being in the great outdoors and thats cool. Hey, keep in touch, maybe we could plan a trip somewhere in the middle of the state(equal driving hours) and do some nugget shooting. I know you guys are intersted in coming up to Winnemucca area(long drive for you), let me know if and when you do and I will meet you out there.

pm or e-mail me if you like,

phone# 775-781-6917,

Take care,

Steve

I am so brand new it's ridiculous - but hello! I live close by Dolan Springs (45 min) but have not been there yet. I may see you all as I begin my journey to find a nugget myself. Have done so in the past in El Paso Mtns, Ca, but not here yet! Any information re: starter metal detector advice would be much appreciated. Don't have one yet-need one ASAP! I plan to join Mohave Prospector's Club, too, this upcoming meeting. I am just saying hello here and look forward to meeting my fellow locals and visitors! I plan to drive up Sunday to see roads from directions I wrote down. If you see lost people in a green Ford SUV, it will be me and family! (My husband and 22 yr old son also have the fever.)
