The Harquahala Mountains near Salome, Arizona provided a beautiful location for Bill Southern's three-day Patreon outing for those who back his YouTube channel, Nugget Shooter Journals.

Very nice, Randy! Too bad I could not come. I will be there next time.

Sounds like a great trip, and nice gold to boot; WTG!

Randy,  Glad you were about to attend Bill's rally and get to spend time with well known nugget hunters.  As someone who does quite a few Field Events, I know the the extra efforts and time it takes to put one of these together and realize not everyone will be pleased. But if the majority of folks are happy, then it's a win win.

Not many dealers will take the time to put events like these together as there is more to it than most folks realize, but Bill/Tammy are the exception and they enjoy sharing knowledge.  To anyone who might be interested, just being around them, listening/watching can help someone become a better Nugget Hunter.

Thanks for sharing and congratulations on the gold finds. Just being around them was a nugget in itself.

Thank you Gerry, and I also need to thank you for getting me started. About five years ago I bumped into you at Rye Patch as you were about to start a class. You let me join. You, Lunk, Spencer and the team got me up to speed on how to use my GPZ giving me a great understanding of the settings and how to swing and listen. The detectors response to different types of nuggets was amazing. Each team member gave me different insights that have paid off. 

At that time the GM 1000 was just coming out, and I ordered one from you. This is the detector that found my nuggets in Salome, AZ. 😃

      Can anyone recommends any really great gold hunting adventures in the USA?  Maybe something like a week guided tour.

      Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, Garrett Metal Detectors has come to the difficult decision to postpone the Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt IV scheduled March 27 – 29, 2020 in favor of safety for all. We are disappointed that we will not be together in Canton and hope everyone understands. We will be back to you once we have decided what our next steps will be in regards to the dates for the rescheduled event.
      Basic Hunt Package:
      Participation in several prize hunts: Lights Out Hunt, Free Range Hunt, and Kids Hunt (for those 12 and under). Three prize token games will be seeded throughout the weekend, including tokens for the Gold Coin Challenge. One Charles Garrett Memorial/Diggin' Texas Hunt T-shirt (if hunt fee is paid before February 1, 2020). Free First Monday park admission and tent camping (RV camping requires additional fee). Hunters are free to search throughout the park grounds for native coins and relics. In addition, special prize tokens and caches will be seeded throughout the park grounds. Optional Silver Hunt and Relic Hunt also available.
      Plenty of Fun for All Ages!
      Meet other treasure hunters and find some treasure! Or explore Canton's historic district and local museums. Free Kids Hunt for ages 12 and under. All prizes will be awarded! A random drawing will be conducted for unclaimed prizes. Special guests, more details to be announced! Picnic and coolers allowed. Concessions available in Civic Center building on Saturday and Sunday. Visit the Garrett website for more information and to sign up!

      The Quartzsite Metal Detecting Club Super Hunt is this Saturday.  The weather looks good so we are going to attend.  We'll be in the Blythe area on Friday morning and willing to go up to Quartzsite for an afternoon of nugget hunting.  Does anyone want a tag-a-long which includes a 2 year old?  haha
      We could go to Tom Wells Road or up to one of the GPAA claims or ???  Ken and Lunk where are you?
