  1. Was up on a seldom used gpaa claim in the El Paso mountains and managed to drop my scoop while looking at an abandoned drywasher that had fallen over the side of a deep canyon. Went back 2 years later and there was the drywasher still, and my scoop. Some of these claims are not that hard hit after all or the drywasher and my scoop would have been gone.

  2. Found on one if the groups I belong to. Now the question is Real?
  3. Last Friday we were lucky enough to have a break in the typical Southern Calif Desert heat wave and those lower temps gave me and a friend a chance to hit a new area for us to check for nuggets. After spending the day we managed to score 6 little nuggets between us, the top 2 were mine and the bottom 4 were his.

  5. I had Shot this video a month or so ago and finally got around to uploading it. I had been raining on and off for a few weeks and so the digging was easy 🙂
  6. The first time I met Fred was out in the Dale Mining District several years back where he had somehow forgotten his GPX power cord and asked if he could borrow a spare I happened to have. Every time we met up at different club events, he would welcome anyone into his camp and treat you as if you were a long-lost family member. All who attended the outings would ask if Fred was coming just to dig into some of his Chile Verde and if you were lucky enough to spend the night, he always had two huge frying pans of potatoes, eggs, and sausage going in the mornings. I asked Fred one time as I was hea
  7. Im am going to wait on the 19 inch probe which I have heard will go 33% deeper and they will give you a discount on that if you pay full price on this one 🙂
