Wades sunbaker patch revisited

Recommended Posts

This was a spur of the moment trip but Luke and I headed out to a old area that Ive visited many times.(Wades Sun baker Patch)  I wanted to run through it one more time after the rain we had this year, and the area really got changed a LOT.

I managed to pull the little guy out from about 5 inches in a wash I was headed down. I turn the corner and see Luke. He was working up the wash. He says "darn it, you found my hill side patch"

Luke found two nice flat ones on the hill side in a type of host rock (schist)  that has always given up gold to me. YAH!!! We both found some.I had walked by those two probably 5 times. Dont know if I ever swung over that particular area or not.....But, they are his now :)  It was absolutely perfect weather for detecting and getting away from it all.

Glad there's still gold laying about in a patch named after me. I'm sure there are more.

Thanks again everyone !!  :thumbsupanim

Yeah, it's always a good time when I get to go detecting with one or two Toms.  Even better when gold is found....

Better yet again, when your friend finds gold too.  :)

You know, I hear ya....   but if it's not the 'Teddy Bear' Cholla, I hardly pay much attention to it.  Plus I think that particular cactus was farther away than it looks in the picture.  If there was cholla on the ground, I wouldn't be squatting like that.  I have 'transferred' some on more than one occasion from my shoe to my backside.  That sure gets your attention.  :ROFL:

And I thought that I was the only knuckle-head who accomplished that feat!  Then ridding side saddle home so the wife can pull cacti thorns out of you know where makes for a fun time.:grr01:  The desert can be a difficult place to play in.
