Deep Beeps Posted August 31, 2022 Share Posted August 31, 2022 Hello everyone, I had posted here before but Steve accidentally deleted my account and I lost the follow up posts. So if you notice this post please re-post your comments. (I lost a few contacts from this post last time that are in the area) I'm headed up to the Sierra's the second half of this September for a month or so and have not been prospecting in that area for some time. So looking for some intel if possible. I'll be in a very big MB Sprinter van with a long tail overhang. Are car break in's as bad as I remember. I use to leave my windows down in my old truck just so they wouldn't break the glass and still would have my jumper cables, old work gloves and cigarette tray change stolen (Yankee Jims). I know the Middle Fork of the Feather is un-claimable (Wild & Scenic) and the part of the North Fork of the American near Yankee Jim's is open to everyone but are there any other unclaimed/open to public spots on the these rivers that I can do some sniping/crevicing/detecting. Again my vehicle is large. Are there any hydraulic pits open to detecting Any good access points that this mega van can get to. It's 10'2" tall, so trees can be a factor but has great clearance outside the long tail overhang. Thanks again for your patience and I understand no one is going to give up their super secret favorite big nugget go to spots but Im coming off a few surgeries and wont be able to do 5 mile hike ins, snipe all day and pack out. More like park next to the river and jump in right there plus with the huge van Im limited on access points anyway. If this doesn't work out I'll most likely be headed to the Rye Patch area or some other Nevada locations if the temps are comfortable and detecting my way south to SoCal and AZ deserts for the winter season where I'm much better versed and can return the favors. Also, if anyone is looking for some company I'll be chasing good gold and better weather while doing the VanLife thing.
