  1. Bam!!!!!!! 1.5 days digging ---- LOTS researching!!!! Good job....
  2. A base camp pack with a day pack is the go---- When in Special Forces I carried a base packs that weighed roughly 100 pounds- (plus my medic bag 35 pounds)-so roughly 65 pounds of gear--- but we dumped it as soon as we rucked to base camp and went to day packs with battle belts. For day trips 3 liters of water minimum--- in SEPARATE containers in case of a leak... A few of the regular items in case you get lost--- My point like the post above--for extended stays-- two packs are the go---- Could even be Army style like the Alice pack and the fanny pack (sorry Aussies)
  3. I can't tell any difference except for the font--- What about you over there Norvic????
  4. where is it? Never mind-- i had to have something to edit before i could edit it.... Sounds like Sourdough Scotts blunders

  8. Well I’m pretty much the expert on all things detectorwise.... just ask me... Most people here would agree on that statement🤠 i think Steve can roll you into an exhaustive list of posts dealing with batteries. See that was easy 🤓
  9. Wow.. my first impression is this is something my dad would have MADE me use to clean up the yard.....
  10. I guess it has been since was in Yuma that i talked with her whatever year that was---- thats when i ruined my screen on the zed with a glancing pick strike---- she said it wasnt covered under warranty--hahahaha 2017-2018????

  13. hahahahaha... --- Go get 'em Merton!!!
  14. Research isn’t everything..... but it beats the heck out of whatever is in second place... once again... a lesson from the Taskmaster.. i once asked him, if the gold is all down this long run of claims you have, maybe I should go on East of them and explore all that ground? It looks completely open to claims. With a look, that I was used to by this time, he states, “ there’s a reason for that. Have you looked on the geo maps I gave you? That’s all way outside the line of strike and besides that it is all solid granite! Read your dam maps!” And many other choice descri
  15. did you acidize this or is the natural----?????? If it is natural. please dont go back there until i get there..... You will definitely need my assistance and Merton will be too busy studying Geo reports to help --- I, on the other hand, will be a willing subject to haul all the nuggets away from the area [to prevent you from hurting yourself.] My number is BR...549
  16. Your right on that-- even tho the police knew where all the junk was this ring had stolen-- I was never contacted to go see if any of it was mine-- nor did i get to put paper work in--- it is too much hassle for them --especially now in LA--- so i just let it go and called USAA--- Its all good.
  17. I just keep paying the insurance premiums....lol So far they have paid off.... Looking for a Nox now---
  18. Mine was stolen a month or so ago-- and I havent gotten up to AK yet to try one out.... I go up in 2 months tho and would like to check out some OLD workings-- the piles are surely hand shoveled that i saw-- all covered in moss and dampness of the south east Alaskan rain forest near ketchikan... Trees canopy is immense.. Luckily i ran in to a fellow who is a gold hunter and even has a few claims--- this area can be very steep and is mostly known for hard rock mines---- but some gold was found down in the creeks... that is where i saw a few mounds of old workings... there are more..
