  1. 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!
  2. 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 😋
  3. 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
  4. Cold Gold and the crunch of the Frozen Dirt under foot...Luv it! WTG Rick
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Thanks for the heads up! Did, I mention we went to the Rodeo too! 😂
  8. There’s several lifetimes of hills and washes in that Country to swing on. Weather is nice in Northern Nevada, might have to get out and try my luck before the ground freezes! Rick
  9. I really noticed the trigger button works best with the DD Coil...Mono, seems to have no effect!
  10. The Florida Clan wanted to come for a visit and try some of that Arizona Sweet Tea. Haven’t seen them all in a group for close to 30 years. But, Robin’s and I trip started on Halloween Day from our home in Reno to Laughlin, NV. That’s about as far as I can drive in a day! We cut through Searchlight, NV and passed a couple washes I’d like to revisit. Next morning we cut out to Wickenburg, AZ for a visit with Friends that just moved there a few months back. Mike & Yvonne formally from Rural Oregon made the move to Wickenburg for the love of Team Roping and the Hunt for gold. Didn’t take Mike long to find a Welcome to Arizona Patch which currently is close to a 2-oz patch! (Below in my hand are the fat ones). Mike took me when we arrived to their home for a short swing! It was a hill side small drainage wash that feed into the big wash. I explored the patch and several nearby spots in the Reno Summer like temperature of 87 degrees. I was roasting when I noticed a Cholla stuck to my Boot which I removed with 2 rocks with a dozen or more of its spears stuck deep into the leather! Well 1/4 mile more and they worked their way thru the leather and now poking my foot! We had to leave with no tools to remove needles. Well off to my Folks and a week of fun with my Family traveling the sights from the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Tombstone. Heading back we stopped at Mike & Yvonne’s again for a longer hunt and then hit the local Rodeo grounds for dinner and some cold beers. Again, it was more than warm for this Northern Nevada guy. We seen some likely hills with some colors we liked. I was 3 gullies over (1/2 mile). I just worked up the side hill wash to the top of the hill and swung over to the next wash to work down it and repeat. I heard Mike say, hey the old timers worked this one! Sure enough old dry wash piles. I was up at the head of the wash and he was midway swing up. I pulled a dink nugget out and then Mike got on a string of nuggets. Sure there was some trash, but there’s 9 little nuggets the old timers left us! We know there is more to find at this spot, but water was getting real low and cold beer was at the Rodeo Grounds. Off we went leaving the new patch to catch it’s breath after a 30 minute beating. There’s still plenty of ground to explore in this old placer area(s) of Morristown! What a great Vacation and yes, we are home to nice and cool Reno 😂. Until the Next Hunt LuckyLundy
  11. I know you worked for them! They don’t just jump into your poke! Rick
  12. Both is a must have, to maintain coil control even with the 6000!
  13. Run your 6000 they way you feel Confident! If you have a favorite combo of setting start with it and if that doesn’t work adjust for local ground conditions!
  14. Worst nightmare, with no spare at Truck!
  15. I hardly seen anyone out there this year, when the soil was perfect! But, I’ve met dozens of fellow Prospectors out there over the years. Always, great to met like minded people out in the middle of nowhere! Rick
