  1. Nice pictures as always, and great write-ups! Fantastic job, nicely done. All the best, Lanny
  2. So sorry to hear about your losses! What a tough go for anyone, so I hope things get better for you somehow. Good to get an update from you, and nice to hear from you again. Thanks for taking the time to post the pictures and to do a little write-up. All the best at this difficult time for you, Lanny
  3. Steve, Thanks for taking the time to post this interesting information! All the best, Lanny
  4. Truly enjoyed your post, the pictures, and the mushroom gathering to boot. All the best, and great to see you posting, Lanny
  5. C'est tout en Francais alors. That one chunk is a monster piece! All the best, Lanny
  6. Dave, I agree with Steve on this one. Plus, remember that if you want to hunt in the X-Terra's true all metal mode, push the button with the pick on it to get into the 705's real all metal mode (the pick icon should appear on your screen when in all metal). As well, always ground balance, even if you're only looking for coins. In the prospector mode (705's true all metal), you'll have to dig everything to be sure, plus you'll get much better depth and often a louder target response when the X-Terra sniffs out any type of metal (at least, that's the way it is for me). All the best, Lanny
  7. Thanks from me as well Steve for your explanation and for the link to your archived gold mine of advice. I've found quite a bit of gold with the little 705, but Minelab, unlike other detector manufacturers, sometimes makes understanding things far more difficult than is necessary. In fact, it's almost like they're trying to reinvent how to say things, when they really shouldn't. Dave, all the best to you as you chase the gold with your 705 as it sure will do the job while you respect its limits, Lanny
  8. Great little video. Nicely done! The shots of the scenery are great, and the underwater shots are great too. All the best, Lanny
  9. A big hello to everyone. I've had a great season so far this year, and I've found lots of nice smaller nuggets, with the largest ones coming in around six grams, so nothing big, but a good collection this season with nice overall weight regardless. I'm curious as to what has happened with the reliability and product quality issues with the Gold Racer, as I haven't heard much lately. I'd love to hear an updated report from people that are actively using it to find nuggets. All the best, and thanks for your time, Lanny
  10. Nice and rough for sure! Looks fantastic. All the best, Lanny
  11. Nice finds. All the best, Lanny
  12. Hi there. So very sorry to hear about your demise. Injuries are no fun as I've found out. I'm almost healed from mine, but still some longer recovery time and physio to go to get back to normal, but I'm going out to take a peak at some bedrock this weekend (and do some "light" nugget shooting); however, I'm not sure how much time my body will give me yet. I guess I'll find out as I'm hitting the road to the mountains very early tomorrow morning . . . All the best to you, and I trust you'll heal properly, Lanny
  13. These really are great little detectors with way more in them than I'd ever expected for the price, so if the price is even lower, that's even better for a highly capable machine. Thanks for the heads-up Steve. All the best, Lanny
  14. Many thanks to all of you that chimed in to let me know the low down on the issues with the machine. I've been considering one for some very specific areas I hunt, but I think I can wait a bit longer to see if the company de-bugs them and recalls all the ones with the bug, or sends dealers kits to fix the problem with the ones they currently have in stock, so none of the units get sold before they are ready to run like they should. All the best, and excuse me for jumping in to ask my question, Lanny
  15. Thanks for the tips on disc. and for the explanation!
