    Have You Ever Pissed Off Your Prospecting Partner?

    On more than one occasion I too have pissed off a mining partner. I just like when they come back and start getting in personal lives between you and your Spouse. It happened to me three times with the same person. Then it was over for good with that guy. I do have friends that I love to take with me detecting however I don't find anything when they go. Though I do find that they soon lose interest after digging a thousand boot tacks and square nails. I only go alone or with my wife now. I trust no one any longer. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't have half of what I have. She talked me into selling a dredge and buying my first minelab then a year later I got my ZED. I love them both more than they will ever know.

    Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    I also used game cams I'm the past and swear by them. Recently I was granted permission in writing on a private land where I work. There is a family that owns it and plans to mine it as well. I helped set game cams to catch those who are without permission. We have gone as far as turning them (the law less prospectors) over the the local law enforcement. There is an on going problem in that area with theft and vandalism. So now we are able to positively ID some of these people. I hate to be that way but it's best to teach a lesson.

    Mrs. Sourdough's Gold Monster 1000

    Not a bad idea Scott. I think that would be a great way for some wives to drive themselves on a detecting trip. I've always thought a flying detector would be awesome.

    The Jury Is Out

    Glad you got something there Norm. I hunted that other area for about an hour and a half and found a bunch of lead. However I did have a great time and look forward to seeing you guys again.

    What Is Your Ultimate Detecting Goal

    It seems I have to change my goals. After a 5.8 ouncer I now am headed to find a pounder. One pound isn't to much to ask for. I believe it's possible. I know I will do it. I keep telling myself and my wife I will bring home a pounder. Cheers John

    The New Garrett Is Finally Coming!

    I used to be the same way! But then I made almost ten times the money in less than half the time after I got the Zed. Cheers John

    The New Garrett Is Finally Coming!

    Oh my. I'm so glad I am on pain meds for the next month. It keeps me smiling and with a sh_t eating grin. I love watching everyone get antsy. I will be buying an other machine too but don't really care yet what one I get. I have five in the corner and can't even swing one. Yet I buy more! No worries. I'll keep collecting gold locators in hopes of collecting gold.🙃🍻

    Can't Say When Or Where

    Thank you strick! As a logger mist if my working life and a son of a sailor I heard and say a lot of things I shouldn't. I really try to not put them publicly where others read however if it's said by others and u report it then I'll try quotation marks more often. Cheers John

    Cant Wait To Use My Detector

    Hey there Mrdingo21 I can't wait to use mine ether. I just walked in the door from surgery. Rotator cuff, posterior labrum tear, and bunch other garbage. All I could think about was my Minelab. Unfortunately I'll be out if the game for a few weeks. 🍻🍻 Cheers and best of luck out there John

    My New Prospecting Vehicle

    I would like to know how that Robinson flies. Is it easy or are you super busy and stiff controls? Only asking because I'm slowly getting there. I'm looking at a few options.

    My New Prospecting Vehicle

    Ok that's really cool. But I have to say one thing, THATS CHEATING! Don't worry. If I had access I'd use one too! Good on ya John
  15. Part of the reason I'm here Steve! Open and honest. No crap or BS. I love it quiet and peaceful not having some jerk telling me how I screwed up, when he or she doesn't even have a slight clue. Well said Steve. 🍻 John
