Trip has been cancelled due to Oct 4th temps to reach 94F. It "was" going to be 89F.

Again I end up being my worst enemy in pre-planning the season to early 🙂

I don’t know, 94 sounds pretty good to me right now. I do pretty well up to 99 but avoid the triple digits. Even then there are the early morning hours. Sorry you are canceling your trip as I was looking forward to the tale.

Thanks Steve, Yeah i agree with you 94F is not that bad. Hmm...I might go still. When i went to Sando two weeks ago it was 101F and was pretty miserable.

And don't worry i'm hoping for many more tale(s) to come. 🙂

Whats the relative humidity in that neck of the woods?     According to this chart if you have a temp of 94 and a relative humidity of 55% it feels like 106, which puts it in the danger category.   I don`t handle the heat real well these days and if I added cloudless day and no wind, that would be a killer for me. 😲temp.jpg

I'm back! was awesome! didn't make it too Sando but made it too Cass No. 9 instead. 

I wanted to walk from claim corner marker to each corner marker but only made it about 200ft from the SE claim marker. The reason was as i was going i just couldn't resist digging up (everything) hot rocks lol. I used the GM1000 today and its seriously sensitive and to be honest i like my EQ800 way better. I didn't find any gold but i did find 2 bird shot and...waaait for it....i found a new friend lol!!🙂

Glad you were able to get out to the claim.  Keep swinging Gfox.  Now that you have a preferred  detector (e.g., the 800), try focusing on getting to know that one inside and out so that you can start building your muscle memory on the audio and visual indicators for various targets, including gold.  Avoid switching off now until you really get to know one of those detectors to avoid resetting your learning curve on your favorite detector and then when you feel confident, break out that GPX and start learning that.  It will be a completely different animal but worth it.  Good luck.
