Hey Norv,

He's hard to understand under the best of circumstances, even for us.   He comes from a part of the country where they have people who are their own uncle.

Oh, my ... com' on Paul ... you need to start speaking for yourself.  

As far as packing ... I remember Paul 'packing' a big trailer and a Chevy Suburban across some awful terrain in northern Nevada.  I think neither could be used again shortly after that.

Norvic, you know he can't keep a secret, right?

Well with luck you'll figure out a pidgeon english with him that ya both can rely on after he gets over his bluey.  Till then just open up note pad on your computer and share messages that way ;)  My mates in WA usually just smile an nod knowingly when I start speaking Yankanese.  Hahh!

Hope they use a reliable donkey to get his bags to ya.  Knock on wood I'll arrive full kit next week myself on the other coast.  Luck with the hunt Norvic, Nurse Paul.

Steve's is right Paul is a one of a kind, he gets a bit over stimulated sometimes.

Condor, got a Spanish neighbour next door to town house over here in OZ, we`ve been neighbours for 30 years or so, never understood a word in those years but we get along fine and have had many hours of conversation. So Paul and I`ll be AOK, strange thing is I think he and my neighbour understand each other.

DDancer, I think that multiple donkeys have fallen under the weight, how long does it take to fly a couple of bags over???? must be bloody monster bags. Have to talk Sir Richard into getting a bigger plane or a whole string of donkeys.

Beatup, your not wrong Steves on the money for sure.

He is becoming very impatient and even incoherent at times, smoke signalling about some Scot laddie, dark smoke at that, every time he talks about this Scot somehow the word sabotage comes into the conversation, cos I may be misinterpreting the smoke.

Mn, I`ve told him that many stories, confused him proper, so the secrets are hidden cryptographically thus can never be revealed. What secrets..............

Paul have yourself a good long walk about down there so you have lots of stories to tell this winter to us poor boys in Yuma.

So, did they leave them in LA or did they loose them along the way? Don't matter it is still a huge pain in the Buttocks!

As to oz-speak...just remember that "time for tea" means someone is going to feed you food...which is way better than a beverage.

Good luck to you both!

Have at it Paul with great success.

Please, please, please leave Fred something.  He has only found 1.76 oz so far this year.

Lucky bloke.

      Two of us made the 5 day trip from eastern OZ to the Western Australian goldfields for a 8 week detecting trip.(armed with 7000,s and SDC)
      We targeted remoter spots that are not really on the radar. We invested in a pile of permits and researched lots of available ground spots. Lots of walking and lots of barren gullies and creeks...... but  occasionally we found the odd gully or slope not touched by a detector that yielded some nice runs of gold. We went 50/50 with our finds, sharing is the way to get a bigger tally when 2 or 3 of you (of equal ability) spread out searching large areas. All up we shared 45 ounces between two of us. There are many ugly specimens not pictured and we will have a big crush and smelt day soon. Cheers RDD

      “Australia’s all-time record annual gold production (314 tonnes) … might well be exceeded*,” said Dr Sandra Close, from mining consultancy* Surbiton.

      A comment I made on Jins post recently reminded me of how easy it is to walk over good sized gold.
      We are all familiar with the horrible loud screams detectors make over big surface targets. Sometimes the cause is obvious, usually surface rubbish such as a visible piece of tin or squashed beer can.
      Occasionally, when walking paddocks (which I mostly do) it turns out to be something useful, such as a lost spanner or fuel cap from a tractor - I have even found a grease gun lying concealed in the grass. These items I always return to the grateful landowner.
      More commonly, however, it is something useless like an old horseshoe, worn out cultivator point and/or the sheared bolts which once held it to the plough tyne. After digging a number of these the temptation to keep walking (with ears still ringing) becomes ~almost~ irresistible.
      Back in the Minelab SD2200 days I had permission to work a large Victorian property located on the Tarnagulla granite pluton to the north of Dunolly. This had a number of unworked shallow Tertiary palaeochannels crossing it, on one of which I located a 7 oz patch. Mostly the gold was smallish and reasonably deep, but the same location was also littered with shallow shotgun shells. These were very loud and nearly drove me nuts, and in my frustration I ignored one outlier - - -
      Fast forward a number of years and, armed with later technology  (GPX4000) I decided to check the patch once more and - - - WHUMP/SCREAM - - - greeted my ears over that same target.
      I kicked the dirt in annoyance -  and then spotted the 70 grammer I had ignored years earlier:
       

       
      I had foolishly made the assumption that all the gold in that patch was deep and small, therefore loud shallow targets had to be junk - overlooking the possibility that something once deep could have been ploughed to the surface - - - I kept it to remind me of the old detecting maxim: "Dig your targets"
