I'm back everyone, I didn't find anything because i didn't even make it to the destination. But close. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. My girlfriend hated every bit of it, lol. She also slipped and fell on the GM1000, scraped herself up and now the GM1000 wobbles a hair. I wont even go into the complaining I heard about walking up the hills. 🙂

I got there at about 11:30am temp was about 75F. It was VERY close to highway 87. Decent dirt road to the place where we parked. Continuation to the destination needed a ATV which i didn't have. The walk to the destination is about 3750ft.

The area seemed not so touched by man sorta speak. was quiet, saw a prospector come out on a ATV and rode past us.

I started at the purple box.

I ended up at the light blue box. (notice the white turn in the wash, i have a picture)

The red box was my actual destination.

I think i'm going to get a Honda Pioneer 500. I can't be spending my whole time walking to these claims. 🙂

Here below is what the new area looks like. I'm to new to determine if this location looks good, but i'm guessing it looks good.

Lol. I hear ya :) 

There's no way i'm giving up I love our outdoors too much. I really like going to these new places. It's like a trading card you can put in your collection. :)

Soon as i get my "Buggy" i'll be good.

P.S, Honda Pioneer 500 = Buggy :)

Hey everyone I have returned and it didn't go so well 😞. For some very weird reason i hurt my neck i think. i was stretching to begin the walk and than stretched my neck a little and i guess i did something and hurt my right neck muscle pretty bad. Feels like a pulled muscle but i never felt one like this before. And with that said I had to return home.

I had about 1500ft more to walk to get too Genes Dream. The blue box is where i parked and the green line is how much i walked. The red box is the start of the claim. I took a few photos near the purple box. The area in the pictures is pretty much how you get to all of Map 5 claims.

The temp was great it was 64F and slightly cold in the shade. Very nice indeed 🙂

Haven't  been up there for some time but we could drive up and park under the trees just up from your red box back then. Road down to the creek probably washed out pretty bad now.  If you are at the RRPC Nov meeting look me up.

Hi jrdemaris, thank you. that would be awesome. Next week im going to go look at a Buggy (Honda Pioneer). We will need a 4x4 past the purple box.

I'll try to make it to the meeting but it's kind of hard for me to plan things because i'm a caregiver for my mentally unstable mother and my twin brother (stage 4 liver failure)

Currently i'm trying to head out once a week but I can't go next week (sad face)

Definitely get that 5000 out there..Seems everyone is into dinking with the monster and other ML VLFs ... That's fun if you're on pounded ground, but I don't have the desire for that much anymore...I love my 4500 and though I have a monster, I honestly don't feel it's better than the GB2 (in experienced hands) ... PI for me! ... Cheers, Unc

A Gold Monster, an Equinox 800, and a XP ORX can find nuggets...... The XP with 80 Mhz can do very well ..... but most detectors in the right hands will find gold .....
