Yo Luke: No feeling is quite the same as discovering your very own patch -- even if done vicariously via a post like yours.  Been tied up with the seasonal things, but going out tomorrow with inspiration!!

So I thought I'd post an update on what's been found since "The Best Day Ever".   :yesss:

I've been back to this location a few times now and there's still gold there, but it's getting much harder to find.  :Diggin_a_hole:

I went out there yesterday with the modded 4000 and the 11" Commander and picked up a couple more for just over half a gram.

Happy Hunting !!  :head:

My 5000 has been collecting dust for the last 11 months.  :shhhhh:

The modded detector will run any coil a normal detector will run.  I chose the 11" yesterday so I could maneuver in the grasses better than the 15" EVO previously.  The gold pictured was found with the 4000 and the 15" EVO, with the exceptions of the 5 smallest (SDC), and the two found with the commander.

I really like the EVO, but if I could only choose one coil, it would be the 11" Commander.  It has a great combination of depth and sensitivity.  I'm very confident with it.

Nice finds dude!

I was down there Sunday as well. Did you see my 4Runner parked near that area? We got in late and left early so maybe not. There was a couple large groups of quad riders, unusual for that side road.

Thanks Shay.  I did see a 4Runner.  If it was you, I watched you pull up and then ducked below the ridgeline.  :inocent:

Thanks again to everyone else.  Always glad to participate and share some experiences along the way.

To be clear, the 14 nuggets pictured were found a couple, to a few at a time.  Not all in one day.  :idunno:
