  1. It all sounds too familiar........๐Ÿ˜ณ (In the end both victims were lost due to running out, no not out of blood ... out of the WOODS !)
  2. I'm thinking the disguise is less for us not recognizing you but for the gold not recognizing you. It's obvious that the gold is the party that fears your attention....... and the detectors don't care,,,they are just all about getting you to "turn 'em on !
  3. Impressive little fella ! Magawa probably translates to Life Saver . I wonder if they trained any of those rats to sniff gold ? Guess they wouldn't be saying , would they ?๐Ÿค—
  4. Yup yup , your system sure is a winner ! 8-10 hour days,,,that's an enduro ! ๐Ÿ––
  5. On older units I'd bet on oxidation on connectors.....cold soldering distant second. 'But with the quality of Quality Control these days , it sure seems like the two could be easily reversed . DeoxIT goes on all my connections since the 80s... https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-D5S-6-DeoxIT-Contact-Cleaner/dp/B00006LVEU/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1R4VIHN4ECUX4&keywords=DeOXit&qid=1642179408&sprefix=deoxit%2Caps%2C131&sr=8-2
  6. I use the small T Rex , zero complaints and I can lift a full one all day !! Doesn't come with a handle/rod though....
  7. Got a pow wow goin' right there ! It's the tribe from F-Troop isn't it ? "we're the fakowi's"
  8. The moral of the story boys and girls is , If you can't find the gold make sure somebody brought cookies ! That looked pretty GOOD !
  9. We all had to make a decision on what to buy. If you're not in a hurry , no need to make the decision till you are and then there's always a "new release right around the corner " to consider too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stick around and your new machine could become easy to pick tomorrow !?!๐Ÿค”
  10. Welcome aboard grievous angel ! Always lookin' for some good crew if your young fella want's to join too.
  11. I finally had time to check these out... I learned one thing. You Ain't Right Erik...... Welcome to the club !๐Ÿคช (I'm going ta go watch some of Calabash's D2 vids now..)
  12. Was that a smile on your face or just a frozen grimace ? If that was here the ground would have been rock solid ! (unless it's over a septic tank ) But pinpointing would probably work , and a can of spray paint might leave a mark you could dig next spring ! LOL
  13. I found some vid of my beach while looking for info on a rare eagle spotted nearby. Not a MD vid and just a quick segment.but there it is....
  14. I subbed a while back. Keep 'em comin' ! Always a fun time being out there with you two ,, Especially if I don't have to toss any boulders and just watch you do it ๐Ÿ˜›
  15. SDC with both types of detecting in it..... Two dozen factory training videos ! Should be some hints there ..
  16. WOOL is GOLD in the COLD Some areas in the woods Badger ? I'll have to check out back , She's pretty solid downtah the shore 'sept for the beach , no icebergs ,,,yet. That below zero crap later this week might change that some...... JoeD Wish I could . Staying up here with 97yo mom till she's gone.... I know the southern trails well though , I'll be back ! I'll pick up OBN on the way down and we'll set up camp in your yard . OK ?๐Ÿ˜œ So , how close to Vero are you ??????๐Ÿคจ
  17. Welcome Aboard Zord ! You just found a new home.๐Ÿ––
  18. I think they sell that control stuff on Reverb.....๐Ÿค”
  19. I only had the quick start guide for the first few months.... No internet so no manual till I found someone to download it for me. Still don't have a printed copy...but I did make a cliff notes manual on file cards to keep in my headphone case. Then I found DP forum. (I think Chase has the manual memorized ??)๐Ÿง Wish I lived closer to Rye Patch so I could hang out with Gerry and Lunk , doubt the manual would come close to that ! If you can get into one of their classes , you'll be SET UP !
  20. I figured it out. That ring was an early prototype for the zincolns ! I just finished prospecting my yard , had to clear 3-4" of overburden to get to bedrock , it's really weird here , kinda looks like??? it's paved. No gold found there but I think I found out where all the black sand comes from and the car can go about half way out to the road ,waiting for the plows to finish building their additions at the end of the driveway arrrrrgh. Had to get a new digger ,made in Canada, it's called a sno-scoop.
  21. CSO You followed some big boots from back thennnn.... I had a friend that was a forward spotter for some howitzers in Nam ,,,,the guys in the 130s saved his butt more than once ! Still came back a few lead ounces heavier . I sure do miss my Gunny ! Thanks for all those saved by YOUR crew ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท
  22. Just ran outta likes just now ! OUTSTANDING FIND !!!!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘+ a ๐Ÿ––
