Backwards wash gives it up

Recommended Posts

Hey all: Went out today with dad and did some detecting. I maped/GPS 3 small tribs I wanted to try out. Dad went one way and I went up the first wash....about 40 yrds up I get a screaming signal. Dug down about 3 inches and got that big flat one in the pic. Slowed down/ turned the sensitivity up and started popping nuggets about every 3 feet.............with NO trash. Unbelivable! This was a wash that we dream about. Well, except for the ironstone :) Its less then a swing across and shallow most of the time. I did get that fat guy on the right middle of scale at a foot and a half deep. Last one of the day and I was barely able to hang onto the pick to get it out. Arm was getting weak! Kept getting nugs so I said to myself, I got to get dad over here. Went back and found him and we walked back up the wash I was in. I would detect/ find a target, mark it with toilet paper and he would dig it with his GBpro. The area is tough on the VLFs. I was getting ahead of him at the end. :) Today was just one of those awsome days where the weather is perfect, Gods blessing you with gold and you have your dad with ya! It just could not have gotten any better. Just have to go hit those other two tribs...then go back in with a shovel and do some more digging and detecting. Great day out today. Oh the reason I call it backwards wash.......all the big nugs were at the bottom of the wash and all the little stuff was up top. Go figure? Total weight was .67 oz. SWEET! I cant seem to load pictures anymore......srry. If anyone knows how to fix it please let me know. It shows the browse button and lets me select on...but wont let me upload. Enjoy. Tom H.
