  1. Nope, your good with your State Permit in Nevada! Now ARIZONA is a different story!
  2. GC, We had the 11” Maxed out! It rained out there, but it will take more than one rain storm to change that dry dirt. It’s not DD time yet! Normal with Max settings to hear what my other machines missed. Rick
  3. Lunk, it was epic! We had the desert to ourselves...only harden detectorist seen!
  4. Any Honda is a good Honda. Not sure I know the Specs of the Pioneer 500. But, my little 570 RZR fits right in the bed of my Pickup...so, I don’t have to worry about flat tires on a trailer too!😬
  5. Joe, should be cooled off by then! Maybe a few left for you to find...low & Slow! Rick
  6. We had a 3 party hunt scheduled Condor, LuckyLarry and myself. I set sail East Bound and down on I-80 to Rye Patch from Reno. I texted the Boyz and received a text back from Condor that his Truck was sick and couldn’t make this trip! Well just meant more Rib Eyes on my dinner plate! LuckyLarry, was on his way from Elko to Rye Patch and the timing was perfect he followed me in to our camp site! Temperature Gauge was a solid 97 at the 3 O’Clock hour. Larry, hunted out here in the Hey Days of Rye Patch. He was just learning Gold Detecting back then and scored many nice nuggets! But, ended up being a Top Notch Relic Hunter. That’s how we met. We met on the Internet with me needing some old Relic’s ID. He was my go to guy to tell me the history of anything I’d dig up in the Goldfields of California. Of course, I avoided these extra trashy old camp sites and would pass the location to Larry for his Relic hunts when he traveled to California. We set up camp and hopped into my RZR Buggy into the heat to swing our 6000’s on my old patches. Finding left over nuggets that our older models missed, but the heat! Had to hit a 100 before some clouds moved in to cool things down! Them clouds had rain and in front of them was the wind. Headed back to Camp to beat the rain, as I left my Trucks Windows half open which was the way the wind and rain was blowing in. Made it back to camp wet Windows up with a gust of wind that had to be over 50 mph. Well early to bed with showers on and off and the next morning with more rain to heavy to detect in which gave us time to eat some cookies and for me to remember where some more old patches where at to swing on. Gone for 4-Days with 2 1/2 days of good detecting! We ended up with 20 Dinks each! Two Lucky 🍀 guys with plenty of smiles for our efforts fighting Mother Natures last blasts of Summer! I figure I’m now about 80% done with having the 6000 over our old patches in Rye Patch. I’m sure we left gold in the patches we hunted for further visits…never can get them all and every day is a different day! Until the next Hunt! LuckyLundy
  7. Turn your Threshold down and your Gain, doesn’t need to be Maxed out either. Rick
  8. Max, Stick to your day job! There’s way more than just swinging your coil for 4 hours a day! Many will say it’s Location/Location. Well locating a Location is a big part of the hunt for gold. Now some find more Gold than others and some it takes a year or more to find their first detected nugget on their own. Now, if you keep it simple and enjoy the outdoors for the peace of mind and exercise this is a great hobby. This hobby, has been very good to me and my Wife. But, there’d be some dinner plates with Beans with no Bacon and only Water to wash it down with. To be successful in this hobby, requires to get off the beating path, each Gold District has different signs of where to begin your search for detectable nuggets. Sure you can make extra income in this hobby. But, a many of times, I considered collecting Butterflies. Get out there for the adventure and the thrill of our hobby...making extra change at it will follow! LuckyLundy
  9. My Nugget Stalker by Doc arrived this afternoon! 🤗 I read the instructions Doc posted on this thread the other day and I had it on in no time at all. Nice fit and quality material and stitching! Bound to last for years and keep the GPX 6000 looking new through each adventure. Doc, is also a new distributor of the Avantree Wireless Speaker! I had the pleasure of testing out Steve H’s set back in the Cooler months and liked them. The stock Minelab Headphones are very good. But, they make my Ears sweat during the heat of this Summer…anything to keep cooler during the Summer I’m for it. Thanks Doc, for the speedy delivery! LuckyLundy
  10. Can’t wait! Your Dust/Protector Covers have made my Detectors Body look brand new for years! Think of a Protector Cover to help keep us Prospectors looking good out in the Elements! 😂 Looks awesome, cant wait for it to arrive! LuckyLundy
  11. I’d check your Hubs! Water/sand gets in them and eats your bearings up! Probably, could use repacking with grease anyways! Rick
  12. I’m still studying what to get for the replacement of 6000 headphones! They are very nice, but extra hot in the Summer months! They’ll be fine in Winter months to keep Ears warm. Rick
