Got a nice one today!


Recommended Posts

Hey all:
Welp, got out today with Dad, and Luke. It was a bit cool in the morning but once the sun got into the wash I was peeled down to a shirt.

Hit some washes up at LSD. Cleaned up a lot of garbage :)
I found a 22 short that has been up there so long the bullet was almost gone from corrosion.

I love picking in the ground for live 22 rounds :(

Hit a wash and was pulling more garbage out of it. Tin, boot tacks, the general junk.

Im getting weary and start heading down the wash to the truck and I get another signal. Great, sounds like that last piece of tin. I walk away still swinging listening for the sweet sound. About 5 feet away a little voice in my head says to go back and dig it what if it is a nugget. I look at the boot scrape...ok...Ill dig it. Get down six inches in all the sand and its out. Yup, got to be tin, its not in the bedrock....however deep that is?

In the scoop and DOH!!! Its a hunk of yellow! 2.8 grams.

I almost walked away from it. Lesson learnt :)
Got a lot more trash out of that area after that.

Great day out and the Good Lord blessed us with some gold.

Had a great day out with The Toms !!

First off, I found all of the usual suspects. Ended up getting skunked when it was all said and done... :idunno:

Other than that, I had a good time and learned a few new things. One, as simple as driving farther out.... :arrowheadsmiley:

Thank you to TomH and OldTom for taking me to see some stuff I had yet to see.

Also, being on location when TomH found his nugget was enlightening. He's got some good Karma too... :ROFL:

Helps to restore some hope for a future nugget (#2) with my name on it !! :thumbsupanim

Thanks again,

At least when you're getting trash you know there haven't been many detectors there. That always gets me excited. Nice Find!

"Nice find, dude," said the Little Voice in yer head -- and me too.. :yesss:

I'll happily take one just like that every time out, assuming I was there instead of here..

But since I'm not you'll have to do it for me,

'you' being 2nd person plural & meaning each and every one of y'all.. :black_knight_standing:

What..? You're still here readin'..? The heck you waiting for..? Time's a-waistin'.. :4chsmu1:
