  1. I returned home from a 2-day trip at Rye Patch this week. It was Chilly & Windy...my fuel bill (Diesel) was $150...granted I didn’t leave with a full tank from my home in Reno. Got home, cleaned my nuggets and tossed them on the scale and I was $25 short of paying for fuel. But, gold is moving up in price and I my be even now? 😂. I thank my lucky stars I can afford these current fuel prices, but I sure hate it. It has kept me home and out of some of the Goldfields of Arizona & Southern California this Spring. Here’s to cheaper fuel prices, more gold and smiling faces! Rick
  2. There you go! Las Vegas Best Selling Book!
  3. I like that Thumbs Up looking nugget! Nice Poke Rick
  4. Nice short hunt! Those are my favorite, makes you get down to business Rick
  5. To many nuggets to remember the total count or weight! I should wash the gate that Lime a Way, I use to clean the Caliche off the Nuggets keeps that Rhino Lining looking dirty 😂
  6. Dig It, very true it’s not Alaska Cold! But, the ground was frozen solid and the Sun does shine down here this time of the year 😂
  7. Not in these parts of Nevada! They say there’s a Naked Gal behind every tree there. Problem is, there’s no Trees 😂
  8. We’ve hunted some of the same Cold Windy spots down in the Dale District! It’s the hunt against what Mother Nature tosses at you to keep you treasures safe! Your a Hearty Sole to fight the elements for a rattle in the poke!
  9. Having moved to Northern Nevada, I’ve gotten use to a chilly Winter temperatures. I will say, I enjoy the Chill vs Heat any day! This year we had the wettest December ever in Reno and then January the driest on record. About mid January a Buddy dropped me a message to hit a spot he just had some luck at in the Rye Patch area. Thinking I’m a smart prospector Robin and I, scheduled new floors to be installed that week, plus Robin’s Birthday is at the end of January! Well the floors look great in the House and 4 days to celebrate Robin’s Birthday left me the last day in January to make the hunt happen. I arrived to our hunting area at a Balmy 41 degrees at 10 Am. Met up with prospecting Buddy Larry and he showed me the spot of his 7 nugget patch. He pointed to a spot 1/4 mile away that he got 3 nuggets at late last year. That’s all the info I need and started the grind to establish a patch or run of nuggets to a new patch. Didn’t take long as we both scored color. We ended the first day with some nice nuggets with Larry scoring a 2.8 dwt’er. Next morning at 19 degrees we hit it again. I scored 4 more and Larry got 2 more nuggets before we called it with no glory patch at both ends of the 1/4 mile run of nuggets. It’s a large area and we’ve found gold close by. So this hunt will continue…but there are so many other spots to find gold at! Until the next Hunt. LuckyLundy
  10. Well Robin, had the oven way to busy to put some bark on these Prime Ribs! Totally cooked in the smoker…Perfect in our books who gathered for the feast!
  11. Happy Thanksgiving Day! We had a huge early Thanksgiving Dinner at the Family Reunion in Arizona! To soon to eat another Bird for us! I just tossed these into the smoker for a few hours and will finish in the oven to make the outside crunchy 😋
  12. Sweet Poke! Weather has cooled down in Arizona since my visit. You’ll enjoy it and may wish it was cooler 😂. Plenty of nuggets and smiles for the 6000 to find. Rick
  13. Cold Gold and the crunch of the Frozen Dirt under foot...Luv it! WTG Rick
  14. Always nuggets at the Burn Barrel to find! The 6000, will sniff out gold on patches out there that we pounded with prior Minelab Technology. Rick
  15. Mitch, As you know, you have swung a coil all over the Western States chasing nuggets. Arizona, started my search for gold back in 1979 and of course has been a Life Long Passion. Stomping on ground that few modern man has seen is just part of what keeps the fire burning to add another nugget to the Poke. It’s the Hunt and The tone of the sweet music made by my detector over a nugget. Wow! Might load up and head to Rye Patch area? Rick
