What To Do When The Weather Sucks?

Recommended Posts

Only 48ks. You sure it isnt 48 knots? 48 ks isn't even 30 mph. Just a light breeze. A gentle zephyr. Up over 100ks & it is getting up a bit. That's almost normal for Wellington. Not called windy Wellington for nothing :biggrin: Either way....hunker down. Lucky gold is heavy & it shouldn't blow away. Hopefully it will blow the desert sands off & you can walk out & find some sunbakers :laugh:

Madfish......what better way to spend a bit of down time from out in the field. Looks like things are panning out nicely for you. Awesome mate. Happy for you. Good karma for putting your mate onto some gold.

Good luck out there

Where are you Jen (roughly)?  My parents in law are in the shire of Sandstone slowly making their way back to Vic - wonder if they are getting the same?  They don't seem to have any phone/net coverage though.

Sorry for not answering sooner.. i missed your post.. 

We are Down below Leinster 

Hopefully they are parked up somewhere, as travelling in this wind wouldn't  be the best thing to do.

its now 8:03 and the wind seems to have settled down.. ( fingers crossed )

tomorrow"s weather will be much better.. going to get down to 4 degrees tonight.

top of 15 tomorrow .. and not as windy..

I had to Google it but just a bit East south east of where they are - cool. 

Yeah, they are seasoned travelers so they'll be holed up somewhere.

I must say, when looking at that area on Google maps/satellite view it is really just many different shades of brown.  Our good old wide brown land :wink:

Hey there Sis, I was just taking the piss:biggrin: But 48 ks isnt  hugely windy. Looks like you are in for a bit of crap weather towards the end of the weekend & into monday. Make those sunbakers stand out more:biggrin: Your temps aren't too bad though.

Good luck to you & brother Mike.

Thats ok bro.. if you cant take the piss out of family :rolleyes: life would be boring :biggrin:

we get one or two crappy days, then back to great detecting weather.. 

Hopefully there may be some sunbakers for everyone over here..

 

hey Northeast

if they are camped out from a town or mine site, they wont have phone coverage.

Been planning on a few days detecting this week. Worked my but off doing extra work in my business and at home so I didn't feel guilty heading off for a few days. Checked the weather and it looks like the area im going to is going to have up to 20mm of rain. It's a  6-hour return trip so a little annoying if I don't get a reasonable amount of time detecting in. Anyway, it's 2 weeks since my last swing and im keen to get back and see if the area has any more surprises waiting, so I'm going anyway.

Not too bothered by wet ground but i hope there's no bad EMI which makes running the 18" a pain. I'll take a few plastic bags to cover the control box and keep detecting if it's only light rain. Worse case scenario I don't get a lot of detecting in but I can always walk for miles and look for spots which look good for detecting and put them into the GPS for next time.

Hey Jin.  Tuesday looks the worst but you'll be right.  Best of luck to you.  Hopefully we'll get to see another yellow haul like the last lot you put up   :wink:

Thats awesome mad fish. You may need to try a Falcon MD 20 if you are getting no signals on the stone from detectors. The Falcon is in its element on that kind of stuff. Cant have you throwing away stone like that due to no signals....Did you try the Gold Monster or a Gold Bug 2 on the stone?

Good luck out there
