  1. Those old PIs are still gold killers. I was inspired by all of Lanny’s old tales where he was using a 2000 or 2100?… and I bought a 2200d under all the excitement and hope spelled out in his stories. Worked out great for me and I started finding nuggets immediately in an area I was originally hunting with a Tesoro Lobo. If there’s gold to be found, any upgrade will improve your odds, ie. vlf->PI IMO you made a great buy. Also, as far as the battery. I got rid of those brick batteries right away and went to Doc’s Gold Screamer with the 7.2v batteries. At a full charge the batteries will read at 8v+ and end up draining down to the stated rating. My 2200 ran great with them.

  3. Hello! Just throwing out a feeler if any reputable members here in said vicinity might be interested in meeting up for some detecting this week. I’m staying in the Oroville area and attending some short meetings in Sacramento until heading home Sunday morning. Shoot me a message if there’s any interest in connecting! Thanks!
  4. Love these stories! Sounds like a great time and some great conversations. I’m sitting here wishing I could join you one day in those far northern reaches!
  5. Awesome! You sure did give me quite the itch with this trip report…. Awesome finds, best of continuing luck!
  6. I’m sure the finder was referring to the mountains upon the asteroid mentioned above 😂 Let the space race for gold commence!!!
  7. Nice looking chunk! How much does that sucker weigh in grams? I’m not familiar with gold measured in carats
  8. In Southern California, right where you think 😉
