frustrated with my lack of success over the last 3.5 hours

I love it.... "he was frustrated" LOL... on pounded ground that many detect for an entire week and don't take anything home but a broken heart... You did fantastic considering that every prospector within 1000 miles, their dogs, hundreds of hobbiest have attended the Rye Patch Coin Hunt, AND a crazy Marine from Idaho has taken hundreds if not thousands of people through there on training trips.... well done!!!!

PS: You folks who sleep in your trucks are a bit too committed to roughing it.... this turtle takes her home WITH HER up to the burn barrel, (and it was pitch black outside when I did it, spooky) none of that 20 degree stuff for me.

The photos are the first and probably last time you'll see a bunch of dredging, sluices and wet equipment at the top of Rye Patch ("Where's the river?", to the tune of "Where's the beef?"... LOL (I was in the process of moving from Canada to Arizona and stopped for a few days.

Great job out there, be proud of yourself.

Great hunt for you except getting skunked on one day.

Wish you more luck on your next hunt and stay safe out there.

Sevastras it was great to meet you. Thanks for stopping by our camp. You only left one tiny nugget behind for us to find! Our hunt was slow as well, but at least we found a few over the course of several fairly relaxed days. The weather did improve for us.  20221029_162909.thumb.jpg.e67f425fe7b1d4911321aa5c6cc6caf0.jpg

Good on ya buddy, well done! You're a glutton for punishment and too bad you couldn't make the Wy trip in July/Aug, it was a lot warmer, even at 8000 ft! 😄

Sevastras, well done! You have had solid success on this trip to Rye Patch. My last trip to Rye Patch was in similar cold, windy with rainy conditions sleeping in the back of my Jeep. I only got two sub-grammars but felt great. No skunk. I totally agree with you …… just being out in beautiful country swinging the detector is one of the best feelings in the world!

Hey, I know for a fact how hard Rye Patch has been detected.  You find any nuggets with a detector and you're certainly doing better than most.  Well earned. 

Funny how I was there the following week.  Ran into Lundy and a couple older customers who had saved a few dinks as well.
