Got a nice fat guy today

Hey all:
Welp dad and I went out and did some drywashing and detecting today.

Trying to get out as much as we can here as I feel some heat coming our way.

I loaded my trusty 80 year old mule up with as much as I didnt want to carry and we headed in...

Got set up at the top of backwards wash and let dad DW while I did some detecting.
We were using Frank Cs little ol yeller....works good!
He got the pickers from the area up out of the wash that I popped 5 small nugs out of last weekend.

I was out hunting different washes and tribs until around 11 and not getting squat.....I was smelling this faint odor....of a skunk :(

Got back to where dad was and ate some scooby snacks and decided to hit the wash I found some gold in last week end.

Was going to crawl back down it and hit the banks. I was running in ENHANCED this time to deal with the iron hot rocks...it works good and I didnt notice any difference from the FINE setting on my test nug.

So........heading back down the wash im hitting the sides and banks, moving crap out of the way and I come to this little Y in the wash. Hmmmm...did I hit both sids of the Y?...so I hit both of them.
I get this screamer of a signal and figure its a nice 30 cal bullet. Dig it out from about 6 inches and HOLY SMOKES! Its a nice big fat nug!!!
After I got done kicking myself about 5 feet back up the wash for missing it on the first run I kept detecting. Sometimes I wonder about myself????

Come to a area that had a old claim marker post on it from 1965 and I get a really odd signal about 4 feet out of the wash. Im figuring its a staple or something from how it sounded.

Finally get it out and it was the little guy on the scale. Go figure. Sure did not sound like gold.

All in all it was a great day out and the good Lord blessed us again :)

Enjoy.

Tom H.

Pixs are coming.......

OMG!!!! Yah...guess the title was a little misleading :O

Sure...we can go drywashing in 115.... as long as there is a generator and swamp cooler out there :P

I got to hand it to you guys...you work your butts off in the heat and bring it home.

Tougher then me
