  1. Thanks Simon , Loved your adventure and effort to take us on it . Been detecting in Tassie on some hairy roads and you brought back all my nervous moments . A change of undies required !!!! Cheers mate goldrat
  2. I have Andy"s book , had been using the Equinox for 6 months prior to reading it with success finding relics , coins and gold nuggets . Started studying Andy's book and couldn't believe how much it improved my knowledge and confidence , so much so that I have cobwebs on my GPX at the moment . Buy both authors books if you have doubts , you won't regret it . Happy hunting , Cheers goldrat
  3. Norm , I'm certain Avantree still stocks great bluetooth low latency transmitters . I've coupled them in the past with Avantree headphones and buds , work excellent . Cheers goldrat
  4. Good Morning phrunt . Found many emu nests with eggs over the years , that find is many years old and the eggs have been spread over a distance . They have faded drastically from their original colour ( good old Aussie sun ) Had many breakfasts from emu eggs 50 years ago , from memory 2 or 3 eggs would feed 6 strapping blokes (scrambled or fried) Couldn't and wouldn't attempt that now . Cheers goldrat
  5. Looks like lotsa digging Againstmywill , a well deserved find , congrats . Not so lucky in the Aussie Golden Triangle and all of Victoria .

  12. Appreciate your important story Steve , I started in hospitality ( clubs and country hotels ) in1958 and finished in 2013 . In that span of years I saw many of both genders ruin their health , wealth , future and last but most importantly their family units . Over the years it broke my heart to see all of the above happen before my eyes . As I aged I tried extremely hard to help many people and their families , but I learnt that they have to own up to their problem , admit it and voluntary seek help . Thanks for your story , you have bought back many work related memories . I have always admir
