  1. I just made my flight arrangements to Australia and I am off the wall happy---- !!! Leaving the end of next month and couldn't be happier to get back and hear the Taskmaster screaming at me......lololol Luckily i didn't lose my airline points from 2017-18-and 19 and that gave me free passage from here to Sydney and back-- the rest i pay for in Aussie dollars !! Yes! Total airfare as best as I can figure is about 1200 AUD from Sydney to Perth to Meeka and back I may even try to get up north this year to where Mad Tuna is on station ...if i get a proper set of body armor first😆 From what I've seen i left some gold there in Meeka and that's ok-- i walked over it at least a hundred times-- i always swing high and fast,,😉 Seriously, Y'all don't know how happy I am to finally get the chance to go back---- I often think of Fred, and how he would have loved to go back,,,, so with Gods help I am going to do it again and this ones for you Fred!!!! Much love to you all and good luck this year finding your dream! No longer VA Nurse Paul------ Outback Yank now...
  2. Plus you need the 2300 for pinpointing those deep holes.....lol
  3. No updates except I could never get the belt glue to hold it together… Failed in R&D 🤠 the idea is sound the application was subpar
  4. If you have to get that detailed i wouldn’t want to do it doing a % is way easier for me. Plus…..The Taskmaster continually amazes me at the reasoning why the percentage goes up fo him periodically🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣and explains it in a way that makes me feel like I’m making more😝 It’s all good if you trust and don’t let greed get ya Therein lies a big problem for some folks… Thank God the Taskmaster and I do not have that issue. We enjoy ourselves… I mean I enjoy myself… I think he probably does too because I believe when he swears and yells it is cathartic for him. 😂 So I feel like I provide therapy by screwing up things and asking dumb questions he has answered a million times before. Yeah can’t wait to get back. Percentage is the go mate.
  5. Great looking gold… in a new area too.!!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!~
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. That’s part of the whole “ experience“ mate Why would one even come to OZ and not get the... “full” experience??
  11. 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 🤠
  12. 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)
  13. Yea, Rob I noticed that too--- you really should take the training!!!! lololol
  14. My folks used to live up in Channing.... I didnt have to much luck there because the ground was as hard as concrete!!
  15. Dont know if i would be wanting to get those type messages-----😉
  16. 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
  17. 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🤠
  18. are they .....40% deeper???? 🤠 I need help--- just cant let it go ...lolol
  19. Good eye!!-- I didnt notice the mob circling the yellow dot. Steve: OZ has the wonderful March flies that will bite like a crocodile and hurt worse...Kinda like the black flies down near Hope-- i was allergic to them...man they swelled up with big red welts and itched like dammit
