Greetings From The High Desert!


Recommended Posts

I have some unexpected extra time on my hands and am going to give metal detecting another try after quite a few years.  I was on a couple of forums that might not exist anymore.  I took the detectors out of the closet and brushed off the cobwebs and dust.  I have a Troy Shadow X2, Tesoro Bandido II, and a Whites GMT.  I mainly used the Shadow for hunting for relics and found a few. I recently sold a Tesoro Eldorado to a friend and hopefully he'll get the detecting bug and we can go out and find something interesting.    I'd like to resume the hobby and search for relics, gold, and meteorites out here in the desert.  This is a great forum with expert reviews on detectors and many informative posts.  I hope to learn quite a bit and enjoy the hobby.

Welcome aboard Arch Stanton !

For some unexplained reason I'm hearing a lone guitar and somebody whistling this really catchy tune , and occasionally cackling.  Lots of reverb.

Nahhhh , .Must just be an ear worm....

All that info you seek is here , much of it already posted. Ask about anything that puzzles you , answer on anything you have something to add.

I've heard there are relics , gold and meteorites out in the desert , so that checks out..     When you and your friend find some remember this one thing........We Like Pictures !

      Hi Goldpanner Here. I created the UKGPA as firstly a forum where people could discuss Panning and also to meet up (We did have 2 great trips to France) and also to try and put forward a solid basis for discussion with the Authorities who wanted to limit or even ban panning. Due to ill Health I had to back away from the Forum and did indeed pass it over to Julie and Dave and they did a great job, untill certain people from other forums and those against panning etc decided to create havoc on it. Julie and Dave then simply shut it down as they were unable to control the scumbags. It was a quite active group with panning trips organised in the UK and also France and also a place where panners could get decent unbiased info and also by decent cheap equipment (including my Supersluice) 
      So, after some serious health problems, including more recently two bouts of Covid I am once agin up on two legs and looking forwards to returning to Panning In France and Spain in 2022. If anyone wants to contact me I have a facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gold.panner.1650/ and would be happy to chat with anyone, maybe even here.
      So good luck and good health to everyone detecting and panning

      Hi all. Long time listner, first time poster.
      Rather than a rambling introduction I have a Question. It appears I am in the market for a new detector. I have an original Fisher Gold Bug in an honest "new condition", I love it and never thought I would part with it but.... do you think it would be an easy sell, or perhaps none wants these old antiques? What would be a fair price?
      Only reason for me to sell it would be to fund a Gold Bug DP....if I go that route, may go for the Minelab Vanquish 540 and keep the GB.....or maybe couple other detectors I'm mulling over.
      Said another way, make me an offer if interested.

      Will be in town for the week and may have some time for detecting. Anyone have any time to meet for a hunt or leads for relics/silver coin possibilities? Thanks

      G'day from lovely downunder. I thought I'd introduced myself but evidently not, apologies.
      I had a GP3000 and 3500 many years ago. Had to sell up due to divorce but kept my Sovereign GT for the beach and parks.
      Back on the hunt now so will be picking up a GM soon when they come back up on special, and something a bit better down the road when I'm a better off financially.
      Just thought I'd say hi,,,and yes I have an old banjo LOL.

      Hi,
       
       I'm a old (age over 50) detectorist from Italy. I used a lot of m.d. in 26 years (various model of Minelab, Whites, Tesoro, XP, Fisher, Garrett and the latest Rutus), but i love so much the Whites Spectrum XLT. This is for me the best detector of all time. I hope to know news and interesting contents about the magic m.d. world!
      Greetings from Italy
