  1. I remember when I got to OZ with my new super dooper Epirb—- the latest greatest 406 Tremain and you looked at it attached to my harness with a noticeable amount of amusement..... I said what’s so funny and one of you said—— We see you brought along your “body recovery system”........ The WA Taskmaster was not as delicate in his description of the piece of equipment... “Get that bloody f..g thing off before someone I know sees you with it—— hahaha Maybe a new trip in 2022 ??? Covid is ruining my retirement plans!
  2. Not all are poly---- Mine breathe ok -- they have a million different styles=--- i was looking at them yesterday--- but yes--get the breathable ones or you will be in a sauna!~
  3. Grundens bibs, ---because you dont have to re-adjusts your jeans every time you stand up ----- And couple of pairs of cheapo rubberized palm gloves
  4. You can have the 2 i got---We just got a 2 day break from a 10000 day rain it seemed.... I noticed the boat was listing more than it usually does in the evening,,(lol)--- checked the bilges and yep---- full --- my 110 bilge pump had shut down for some reason---- adding back a redundant 12 volt system and pumping things out the rest of the day----- will pull the 110 unit and give her a good clean up. Carry on
  5. That’s part of the whole “ experience“ mate Why would one even come to OZ and not get the... “full” experience??
  6. Yeah mate i heard the dingos are him...... but if you go to Australia you need some basic gear Body recovery system— Epirb they won’t find you in time to save you—- but they can pack up the rest of your remains the bungarrow didn’t rip off... for the family back home. I’m on my phone so I can’t type fast enough.. leave it said you need heavy , thigh high SnAkE Boots, extra wide brim green fishing cap for the vicious summer sun .... and spider proof swag.... much more others could add.. prospectors 🤠
  7. Thats one of the best of the VLFs over the years, I would be looking for a used PI Minelab 3500- 5000 series for the money you have. Since the new ones are out the prices have dropped considerably (dont know that 2k will be enough --depends on how good a wheeler dealer you are)
  8. Yea, Rob I noticed that too--- you really should take the training!!!! lololol
  9. My folks used to live up in Channing.... I didnt have to much luck there because the ground was as hard as concrete!!
  10. Dont know if i would be wanting to get those type messages-----😉
  11. I used to have an app on my phone that would allow me to take a picture (maybe a video) of a nugget and then a short description--- Of course this would definitely be a pain unless you were really interested in delving in to the inner workings of the machine. I think it would be fun. Im not sure if that program arbitrarily logged the gps coords or not--- remember to set your location button the right way so it wont send it to the internet. When in WA, the Taskmaster always had me set a waypoint on my mapping program (offline) when i found a nugget . After we were thru with our push in 2018, it was fairly easy to see how the new nuggets that popped up right between two or more other patches already worked. But the push helped because there were many old piles we had to get moved. Point being, recording finds could be managed fairly easily-- if it were nothing less than a pencil and a small notebook. Something about hearing those tones though that puts the info at a higher level of comprehension. And yes i am rambling---lol--- it is raining this morning in Klawock AK and im just enjoying a coffee and the forum. Good luck to y'all
  12. Klunker, It's what's behind the machine that makes it magic... go ahead and bust out another thousand or two and get one... So i can borrow it🤠
