Good. I don't want you driving over here to my gold fields and discovering how easy it is to become filthy rich detecting the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Well done Klunker; the vigilant guardian of our foothill treasures.

Ah, you got the hint! 😁Of course I am!  I met Leonard Nimoy (Spock) at a carwash in LA. I have his autograph in a frame right next to my gold collection. "Where no man has gone before" is a good recipe to find gold in CA. You just have to find those places. Literally everywhere you go someone with a beard has been there before...

  Now you've made me feel ashamed of myself. I will expect you here sometime between June first and September 30th but first read Mn90403s' article so that you have astronomically high expectations. 

  I will loan you my 2 quart pressurized container of bear spray, a gold sniffing hound, a Jeep with the steering on the right side  (which would be the left side), Your choice of a gaggle of detectors and Sourdough Scott.

  I'll see what I can find. I am assuming you want the Toyota because, unlike my Jeep, it has windows, a heater, air conditioning, a radio and brakes.
