  1. Cool Doc ! Maybe Pikes was a brand name ? Pikes Pokin' Poles πŸ˜‰ I still have a lot to learn about this old stuff and guess that's not necessarily referring to finds only........πŸ™„
  2. Silver is always welcome in my finds pile .πŸ₯Έ That's a nice piece.πŸ‘
  3. Yup yup Doc ! Never heard those poles called pikes . πŸ€”I would have thought "pokes" more appropriate though ! I was just guessing the big rocks were from a river , guess an old glacier could have been the source too? Probably both wrong.πŸ™„
  4. Is the river big enough to have been used for logging ? Poles with points like that were used to clear jams... might be one of those ?
  5. Always expecting to see something nice in your posts . No disappointment today !
  6. Nice permission . They even shut off the fence ! 3 cool items in the finds pics , all never before seen by these eyes .🧐 !
  7. Welcome aboard Jeff ! You're right that many places are off limits , but... If you ask at state parks , the ranger might just issue a permit. Town city parks aren't all on the no list either. Research helps you locate old long gone buildings and other areas of occupation long gone....talk to older residents to find hang out spots etc. Knock on doors , ask permission, the worst that can happen is they say no. Campgrounds and Fairgrounds are a good place to detect, again ask for permission. Most public beaches are allowed and like I said some of the state park beaches are open through the permits. This forum is loaded with experience , you chose wisely . The best of the best call it home. No question is stupid. Just ask. Steve's Guides is also a great place to learn more.... Happy hunting.
  8. Welcome aboard and you've definitely found the best forum to join. The forum owner Steve probably knows more about mining in Alaska than anybody ! That thread VL posted has news of a good chance to meet him if you're already there. Ask your questions for some great replies and......Good luck on the hunt !
  9. Welcome. and make yourself at home. That Deus2 has quite a reputation of success already. Hope you find some great stuff with it ! If you have any questions just ask. There are several here that also swing a D2 ! (Even have some custom programs for it. )
  10. Jim Two snakes gettin' jiggy. You can't unsee that !😳 Glad the pooch didn't get bit on. You pranked the prankster VL ! Bet he didn't do that again...πŸ₯Έ
  11. Welcome back Revolver from uptah camp !😎 You know the drill.. If you have any questions about that 6K just ask 'em . Many here have extensive experience with it ! No gold yet? Me too ! Keep trying , as you know your odds are going up every time you skunk out ! That nuggie is waitin' ,,,,right ova thayah >>>>>>>>>>> Ya just gotta get that coil over it !πŸ€ πŸ––Live long and prospect.
  12. Welcome aboard Joe ! You chose wisely , hope you enjoy your stay. Hey Joe , where ya gonna go , with that detector in your hand ? Well wherever you went , what's in your hands now ? (wait for it ....) Did you find anything good ? 😜
  13. Welcome aboard ! Last time I was out on the Cape these places where I was (in the 80's).. Compass , Pufferbelly's , and of course The Chicken .. But now I yam where I yam,,,uptah camp ! Lots of beaches and historic places out thayah on the Cape . yessuh Waiting for your finds pics. Bet some nice ones !
  14. Button , button , you got a nice one ! Silver is the fastest color. Glad you caught some !
  15. Well , welcome aboard to the both a ya from uptah camp ! I always wondered if a nose ring would fly if the owner sneezed ?
  16. WTG ! Now you'll have to start a collection .🧐 It's awesome to find out a mystery target is a KEEPER ! There's so much junk out there to compete with a good relic, it has to struggle to be found !
  17. But YOU found the marble ! BTW I found a marble yesterday...... Bet you probably left him in the dust in IQ points....... Awwwww geee Doc. I know all about Bluto ! (He always takes the wrong turn in Albaquirky ..) Tried to make a fool outa you too huh ? Your thinkin' right then was "I've had all I can stands and I can't stands no more !" . I just know it somehow ! I have a friend that had a brother like that ! Was one of those "Hey y'all watch this , somebody hold my beer !! "types. He became a used car dealer ! And died of an Oxy overdose .....True story ! How'd your "Bluto" do ?
  18. Nice haul right there ! Assure wifey that many here would do that finds dance too !🀩
  19. Doc I'm guessing you had some kind of experimental find locator chip implanted in your head back in the 70s ? Possible alien origin??? (You sure didn't find it on the i-net back then)...and ...where and when can I get one and did the probing hurt too much ? 😏 Kidding aside Doc ,a hunt well done ! Looking forward to your next .
  20. Ehhhh,,,, What's Up Doc ? That site is a good spot is what's up ! Site envy here Uptah Camp . Looks like you took the RIGHT turn in Albaquirky .......
  21. Hmmmmm , impressive! The crew up there will be sooooo jealous and the show producer will be contacting you as soon as he fires them all ! Personally between you and me I think he'll be happy not having to come up with weekly "big find of nothing much " clips..... I think that would come under the category of a map with an X,, if you could just give me the GPS #'s ? and what your settings were ! 🧐 You're making Gary's bobbydazzlers much less dazzling..😡 I'm digging a tunnel from Maine to the island.. (Cap sold the boat and moved to Nebraska) So I might link up with your very shallow digs in a few days or so..... OK , I know I can drive there but where's the fun in that? Happy hunting and welcome again from Uptah Camp ! OOOOie
  22. I'm late to the party. The finds pics are looking like you still have massive display disease.πŸ‘ I'm hoping to become a victim of that terrible situation myself.😍 That GPX is a real "Hoover " ! πŸ€” I'm saving up my finds from the last month. And maybe next month too . I'm getting close in the junk department anyway.........πŸ™„
  23. That cover looks awesome . just like the rest of them did ! WTG Doc ! I'm sure there are no unhappy customers.... phrunt So , you're an Aussie Kiwi ? πŸ€” So who do you insult if you're both ??? 😜
