Recommended Posts

Wife and I had a nice day out in the desert.

Got out there soon after sun up, temps in the high 30's. It warmed up fast to the high 50's. Perfect.

We set up the drywasher and was going good until the battery gave up. Charged it the night before. Screw Wal-Mart and their batteries.

So we got to use the hand crank feature. Really wasn't that bad.

After lunch my wife wanted to use her new metal detector so off we went.

She did well learning the ropes. She didn't find any gold, but did find a nice crescent wrench about 8 inches deep.

I stuck with her, surprised there wasn't any crosstalk between machines, and then went off on my own.

I was skunked on nuggets, but did find a very small meteorite. Darn thing almost flew onto the rare earth magnet glued to my digging tool.

Anyway... decided to head out little after four and crossed the dam just when the silhouettes were the best.

A fine day. Just need to run the concentrates tonight.
