Still waiting on bags, but the latest news is they made it to Brisbane.

Whether or not they cleared customs in time for the flight to Cairns is anyone's guess....

Should know in south couple of hours...

I guess this was good downtime for us to utilize as language training....

Vic is a doppelganger for Chris Porter so that keeps me even more confused...hehe

We went out to the park today before lunch and Vic beat me with the CTX..I had the deus....  

He got 30 or dollars yesterday evening out my front door on the other park!!!!!

I had walked somewhere and he missed me at the house....and believe it or not, he had the nerve to go detecting without me.....grrrrrt..... I'll get him for that one..

I could have paid done of this exorbitant wifi bill I have going...

Till next hunt..... Hooroo

Oh yeah, he dropped me off after the park hunt but didn't open the gate do I could get to the house.....Being he is deafer than an anvil...he didn't seem to hear me yelling as he drove away...not only with the keys, but the Wi-Fi hotspot...

My buddy......

Hey Paul, enjoy your extra time in civilization. Try a Morton Bay bug. They are a cross between a Lobster and a King Crab.

Due to National Security and blowing the covert operations of my peoples under deep deep cover. I cannot comment on this thread. And fully recuse myself from further implications on this matter.

Well OK....

Just got home to Dimbulah after recovering the lost luggage :-)

On the way back, Vic and i stopped off to see if Tremain was home and we hit paydirt.!

Sat down in the evening coolness and had a great chat..he has a million stories...I can see that.

All round nice guy, polite, well spoken, and I like his outlook on life!

Hope to get to do a mission with them later on in this tour.

I am thanking God for the blessings He gives me I'll tell ya'

      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"
