Dang, This Global Warming Sucks...

Going to get cold a month early. Down to 12* Monday morning, and 9* Tuesday morning, and then back to 12* Wednesday morning. Highs in the low 30's. We're planning a trip to the Winnemucca area around the 1st. Hope it warms up a little. The earliest I've ever seen single digits here is the first week of December, though I remember a couple of years when we had 10* about the 10th of November. Both of those years that 10* was the coldest temp of the entire winter. I have a feeling the talk of a Maunder Minimum may be true. We had a cold October last year, and even colder this year.


Keep us posted on your trip

Completely the opposite below the equator. Pretty much the whole of Australia is in drought, and no end in sight.☹️

Honestly the worst I can remember it here. I've never seen camels so bad, absolutely nothing for them in the desert so they're invading the pastoral lands in record numbers.

Just reading this morning of the drought in Africa, about the same as here. Horrible pictures of dead elephants bogged in mud of dried up lakes.

All the cold weather and the rain is hitting us here in the Latrobe Valley. (it must be because of all the Lignite (Brown Coal) Power generation being shut down 😀 )

      There are two sites where gold will soon be produced near Elko, Nevada.  I think everything is on go with the possible exception of The Green New Deal!

      The weather in northern Nevada has been extraordinarily nice this past month, but it's due to deteriorate rapidly soon; time to head for the sunny warmness of the Arizona goldfields. During the last 3 weeks I've managed to scrounge up 43.4 grams (27.9 dwt) of the good stuff from old patches with the GPZ 7000 and stock 14" coil. Largest nugget weighs 7 grams (4.5 dwt) and the deepest bit was close to a foot and a half.

      The nugget shooting world lost a legend today: Smokey Baird of Lovelock, Nevada passed away after a battle with cancer. Rest in peace my friend.

      I finally got retired this past Friday evening.  Today is my first day of retirement of what would normally be a work day.  It feels really good too!  
      I have been planning for a while to go out west to do some semi serious prospecting.  I'm pretty well set on equipment (metal detectors) now but trying to narrow down where I will actually go.  I am set up to go to Oregon in the Sumpter area July 8-10th and to the GPAA veterens outing on the 23-24th of July in Fernly Nv (near Reno).  Right now that's the only definite things I have planned other than going to the crater of diamonds mine but will work that in when convenient.  I plan to take as long as a month or so for my trip. 
      I am thinking to stay in the NW area to prospect (Oregon, Nv, Washington State, maybe Northern California etc. But am open to any areas between NC and the NW as well.  I have recently re-joined the GPAA.  I would appreciate any suggestions of places I could check out to Nugget Shoot or maybe any clubs in the NW I might join to have access to some potential nugget producing areas.  I hope to hit a few Gem mines as well on my trip.

      Anyone gonna be on the patch this Summer or is it too hot to be out there between now and Sept?

      Hi all,
      Spent my last few detecting days out trying to find a new patch, hitting hard to reach spots in a known gold area. I have probably hiked and detected20+ miles with nodda, zip, zilch.  I am getting discouraged, haven't gotten my ATX over gold in a while. I'm contemplating going to a completely different area like Gold Basin, though I know it's been pounded . Or should I stick my plan of finding a virgin patch. Never really found a patch, unless I had to dig up the wash to find the nuggets, too deep to beep.
      What do you guys do to get out of a slump?
      Thanks Chris
