  1. Fred My hearing is terrible and now you have shown me I can't see either.
  2. As I drove past that R.V. this morning I wondered what vandal would do so much damage for fun. Thanks Mitchel for posting those links. Very tragic story.
  3. Good job Mitchel I think we both need to take lessons from Jennifer. I was fortunate to be a half mile in front of Mitchel and came up with these.
  4. Very nice B-Day presents!
  5. I thought that it might look like that after being in Klunker's Jeep!
  6. Trent North of the equator, your tongue must be to the right.
  7. Found this in Bull Head City Az.
  8. Thanks for the responce. I have been having troubles with the chattery threshold and with a complete restart, the chatter was gone. I don't always use the GPS and did not put the two together. From now on, I will use the GPS for find points and a time piece then turn it off. Norm McQ
  9. Are there any updates for the aftermarket skid plate for the 19" and could you comment why the GPS should not be used on ZED?
  10. Happy B-Day J.P.
  11. Having grown up in the mountain community of Yankee Hill and riding the school bus down through the old highway which is now under Lake Oroville, I wittnessed the construction of Oroville Dam and had a few jobs that were associated with different phases of the construction. One of my friends was a construction laborer that was involved with cleaning the bedrock before the concrete core block was poured. There was quite a bit of gold recovered by that crew. The only draw back, was they could only clean the bedrock for themselves before work or during lunch break. As for the actual material that was used for the earth fill, most of it was tailings from the huge dredgers that had woked in the area. Having said that, I am sure there is a considerable amount of gold in the dam itself, the recovery methods were never 100% Norm McQ
  12. It is boring to detect behind Klunker, he gets all the gold and most all of the boot tacks! Norm
  13. Update I took Steve's advice. Talked to my dealer, then Minelab service. Minelab service (Kelleyco) said it should be treated as an out of box failure. I then called my dealer back with to info I had. He then called Minelab Americas. Between my dealer and Minelab, my defective detector is on its way back and a new one on its way back to me tomorrow. Minelab is paying the freight both ways. I am happy to say, I think I have a great dealer and Minelab made it happen. Norm
  14. Thank you Steve and everyone else that has attempted to help me. I will call my dealer and Minelab Americas and will keep you informed of how it was handled. Norm
  15. Ok I did every thing that was suggested. Checked all connections,recharged the battery, changed coils, held power button in for two minutes several times. Machine has NEVER been close to water and has less than an hour of use. When powering on does not go beyond start up screen and no tunes. Looks like I have a defective detector. Is there a repair facility in Arizona? Norm
