  1. Hello again everyone and Seasons Greetings! It's been pretty rainy here in AZ the past 6 weeks so I took the time to get the buggy ready for its first expedition. The buggy came stock so I had to add a windshield, hard roof and A-Arm guards. I'm really liking this Pioneer buggy! I'm amazed how smooth it handles on the dirt. πŸ™‚ I took the Buggy out for it's first expedition on December 13th for a test run at a RRPC claim. I didn't prospect that day i was mainly learning the new camera and buggy. I uploaded the whole test run to YouTube, i will share the link below. It's a pretty horrible long video but oh well im learning lol. I plan on filming each expedition but won't be as long as this first video. Next expedition is planned for the first week of January. RRPC Map 17 here we come! πŸ™‚
  2. He's doing better than me that's for sure. Good job MannyScoot πŸ™‚
  3. I've been to that claim site and seen those strange piles. It's an interesting place for sure.
  4. I'm back everyone πŸ™‚. Took me awhile to heal from my last endeavor 8 days ago. But i'm back ready to go. Note too self don't mess with neck muscles. My next Expedition will be on the 11th, Monday. I have some very good news and since i don't really have any friends to share my excitement with i'd like to share my excitement with you all! I got my BUGGY!!! 2020 Honda Pioneer 700 I got it today from Ride Now Powersports Chandler. I financed it with 4K down. Super awesome, me happy! πŸ™‚
  5. Hey everyone I have returned and it didn't go so well 😞. For some very weird reason i hurt my neck i think. i was stretching to begin the walk and than stretched my neck a little and i guess i did something and hurt my right neck muscle pretty bad. Feels like a pulled muscle but i never felt one like this before. And with that said I had to return home. I had about 1500ft more to walk to get too Genes Dream. The blue box is where i parked and the green line is how much i walked. The red box is the start of the claim. I took a few photos near the purple box. The area in the pictures is pretty much how you get to all of Map 5 claims. The temp was great it was 64F and slightly cold in the shade. Very nice indeed πŸ™‚
  6. Thanks guys. You know what i never thought of that, what if it breaks down. That would be worse than breaking down in a car, oh dear. I'm going to go look at Western Honda on Thursday to see what i'm up against.
  7. Thanks Glenn πŸ™‚ I'm still debating if i should go used or new. I'll probably go used. Do you know how often Polaris needs the CVT belt replaced? And lastly for your RZR what type of ramp system do you use to get it in the bed of your truck?
  8. Expedition #6 Claim: RRPC, Genes Dream, Map 5 Detector: EQ800 6" coil City/County: Black Canyon City, AZ / Yavapai 53F-64F Date/Time: 10/30/2019 10:00AM-3:00PM
  9. Hi noob, Do you know what they were mining for in that mine ?
  10. That's not bad i'll check it out for sure, thanks. Awesome setup Glenn, That little storage box on the back is perfect!
  11. Okay great thanks. Do you remember how many GB it was? I'm asking because im wondering if 16GB of internal is enough for my 66s. I want to put most of AZ in it.
  12. Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback. That little truck is sweet! probably more than a Honda Pioneer 500 though
  13. Thanks Mxt Sniper, I'm going to go look at the Wolverine on Tuesday.
  14. Right on Andyy, on your BirdsEye how much data (size in MB/GB) does the high res typically use?
  15. Hello all, I was wondering what brand of UTV Buggy you all use? I'm going to get one but can't decide if i want a used 2017 Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE with 1,100 miles for 8,899 OR just buy a new Pioneer 500 or 700.
  16. Update: I ended up ordering the Garmin GPSMAP 66s. I'm going to be using high res BirdsEye with the 24K SW map layer. No getting lost now!
  17. Hello everyone, I emailed whites about the voltage on the TDI SL. I asked if it was okay to use Energizer Ultimate Lithiums for a voltage of 14.48v. Here's what he said below.
  18. Hi noob, how are you liking your TDI SL?
  19. Thanks again everyone πŸ™‚ Oh i forgot to tell you all, my girlfriends GM1000 is fine. When she tumbled the shaft by the armrest unscrewed a few millimeters. So i just tightened it and all is well again. You guys are going to laugh (because i did), on the previous expedition when my girlfriend was attempting to use the GM1000, she was doing a new swinging technique i haven't seen before πŸ™‚ just think of Karate Kid and Wax On, Wax Off. lol. What's even funnier is she found a hot rock with excitement thinking it was gold, she takes the dirty hot rock hands it to me and said its gold! I said no...it isn't gold, if it was that little rock would weigh ten times as much. So the GGM1000 is going strong again and I feel like an un-experienced teacher lol πŸ™‚ P.S - GGM1000 = Girlfriends Goldmonster 1000. Next Expedition October 30th.
  20. Thanks guys i appreciate that πŸ™‚ many more expeditions to come.
  21. You're welcome. I just hope i'm not getting annoying to anyone.
  22. Hey everyone, I ended up getting one of these from Rob and it works pretty well. I'm using it with my EQ800 and a Doc's little speaker, works better than i was expecting. πŸ™‚
  23. No problem. I'll be heading out again next week. My goal is to go every week.
  24. I'm back everyone, I didn't find anything because i didn't even make it to the destination. But close. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. My girlfriend hated every bit of it, lol. She also slipped and fell on the GM1000, scraped herself up and now the GM1000 wobbles a hair. I wont even go into the complaining I heard about walking up the hills. πŸ™‚ I got there at about 11:30am temp was about 75F. It was VERY close to highway 87. Decent dirt road to the place where we parked. Continuation to the destination needed a ATV which i didn't have. The walk to the destination is about 3750ft. The area seemed not so touched by man sorta speak. was quiet, saw a prospector come out on a ATV and rode past us. I started at the purple box. I ended up at the light blue box. (notice the white turn in the wash, i have a picture) The red box was my actual destination. I think i'm going to get a Honda Pioneer 500. I can't be spending my whole time walking to these claims. πŸ™‚ Here below is what the new area looks like. I'm to new to determine if this location looks good, but i'm guessing it looks great.
