  1. Hello everyone I'd like to document my expeditions this year. This will be my first season of being an "Electronic Prospector". I've studied most of the summer and am ready to go. I still need to learn more about Geology but I'm hoping this will come with time in the field. I look forward to posting my adventures/expeditions with you all 🙂 --Garik
  2. It was way too hot, 101F. Dug one hole to find a piece of sheet metal, than i called it a day. At least I finally saw the Little San Domingo Wash 🙂 I'm heading back out Oct 4th 🙂
  3. This is interesting, just two days ago i was studying if gold had any effect on plant leaf color, growth etc.
  4. Oh wow! In this Simplex video is that the Minelab "Vanquish" detector at 2min 18sec into this video?
  5. The Klondike has been spotted! 🙂 https://nuggetshooter.ipbhost.com/topic/34390-minelab-memories-of-the-past/?do=findComment&comment=316127
  6. These discontinued Minelab products are really cool to look at and read about. I was amazed. The Golden Hawk looked cool! Wonder what the Klondike looked like. https://www.minelab.com/usa/support/knowledge-base/discontinued-products
  7. In Quartzsite, what did the sign say for the reason to stay on the road?
  8. That's bizarre. Have you done any more research on the tags?
  9. I'm alone in my prospecting adventure. I've been doing self study of most things including geology. I haven't met any club members yet. I live in SE Maricopa County so its pretty far to our claim sites.
  10. I understand thanks Chris. I appreciate your information. I'm heading out Sept 18th. I'm going to use just VLF that day. I'll focus on my GPX-5000 later in the fall, i'm probably going to start off with the 8"inch commander mono. Im very new i just got my EQ800 in December and just got my GM1000 two months ago. I only used the EQ800 for about 1hr total.
  11. I was about to order a new pick 🙂 very well done.
  12. I was just curious and was wondering what the GPX-5000 has that the GPX-4800 doesn't have?
  13. On your 11" elite, have you noticed a improvement from the stock 11" commander mono?
  14. That's impressive, what's your opinion on the 14x9 evo?
  15. I actually cancelled the 17x13 order because i wasn't to sure if that was the best one or the 15"inch evo. I haven't touched a GPZ7000 yet. I still need to open my GPX5000 box lol. Sept 18 is when im heading out to the fields.
  16. He did mention in his Amazon author biography that he has/had terminal cancer. Let's hope he's okay. I searched and couldn't find his death. What's interesting though some of his books were published in 2017
  17. Here's some info about him. https://www.amazon.com/Donald-N.-Hester/e/B00J6ZVP4U%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share http://www.donaldnhester.com/biography.html
  18. Hi my name is Boomer! I'm 3yrs old and my owner thinks i'm a american staff./sharpei. I want to go prospecting really bad with my owner, he likes to dig rocks and i like to smell them. I don't think he'll let me go because he thinks i will smell this plant called a cactus and my mouth will end up looking like a angry porcupine. I've begged to go... Occasionally I sneak inside this motorized human buggy. I also got crazy and found my own buggy.
  19. There must be some serious electronics inside a GPX-5000, wow!
  20. Thanks i think i understand. So a piece of "metal" in the ground completes the circuit sorta speak.
