  1. Want part of the Beehive? https://www.forbes.com/sites/reginacole/2020/11/24/want-to-own-a-gold-mine-a-legendary-one-is-for-sale/?sh=4ff3f0eb6168
  2. I can't resist. You 'chased' one down. Way to Gold. Now you are really a Goldman. Mitchel
  3. Randy, Good job on the writing and good gold. Mitchel
  4. Simon, We do learn from your exploits and we also wish we were there doing what you do in such a beautiful setting. Mitchel
  5. I just read this thread for the first time. Based upon the comments I must have received a new shaft with the additional length and the corrected clevis. When I first put it together I pushed it all the way to the shortest possible length and it was just 'usable' (without a notch) close to my feet. I'm 5'9"/10" so I can extend it half to 3/4 inch to get to the first notch and it stops rotating. I can't get it to stop rotating without it being in a notch with the clamp 'locked'. If I wanted to extend the shaft I have 6 more holes to make it longer but none to make it shorter. I don't thin
  6. I've seen several large meteors. The last one was early this month as I was going to my last gold hunting trip. I noticed a streak off to the left of the car and then I followed it past the windshield post to the windshield before it 'blinked' and I saw it again for about a two seconds later and then it broke up and was no longer seen. I reported it recently as you can do online giving your impression and where you were. My sighting of the space junk coming it was just incredible. It was like a movie as I was stopped with a dark sky and watched the event and multiple pieces burning fo
  7. Joe, Thanks for the response. If I had it to do over again I might have kicked this AQ down the road a bit and let someone take my place. I'd order one of your batteries for long hunts but my time using it now will have to be shared with my 3 year old and newborn (today). I'll find some time for some short hunts but not much more for the next few months. Mitchel
  8. A bright green meteor streaked across the southern coast of Tasmania, Australia, and researchers caught the fireball on camera as it broke up over the ocean. The meteor lit up the night sky on Wednesday (Nov. 18) at 9:21 p.m. local Tasmanian time (5:21 a.m. EST and 1021 GMT). A livestream camera on the research vessel Investigator, which is operated by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, captured incredible views of the fireball as it descended from space and disintegrated above the Tasman Sea. https://www.space.com/bright-meteor-video-tasman-sea-november-2020.html
  9. There are some 'sources' along the East Fork and up higher but I understand now they are enforcing the Monument status and giving out tickets to panners. I don't know what they do to someone who has a metal detector. Then there is that 'frog thing' in Piru Creek. I also understand there is a 'Friends of San Francisquito Canyon' group but I knew someone that got away from the bullets and found a few nuggets on a red hill up there. I didn't.
  10. More gold history in California. http://altcoinbeacon.com/2020/11/18/discover-the-impressive-history-of-the-american-gold-rush/ I just looked at the end of this article again and it has some info about Bitcoin. Please ignore it or maybe I should just delete the link? We'll let Steve decide.
  11. I received my AQ yesterday afternoon. I put the battery on charger and about an hour later it was fully charged. After some scrambling around to get out of my apartment I hit the beach on an incoming tide. I went to an area where I had seen beach PI holes before and decided to give it a try. As you can see it was not a productive location except for the eCig cartridges which I got 3 of them. They were deep and the sound was high. I started out in everything preset as the Quick Start suggests. I didn't know what it was going to sound like but it is a higher pitch than I normally list
  12. Compass, That is a nice collection. Well done. Mitchel
