  1. Thoroughly enjoyed this awesome story re your amazing mini gold excursion! Incredible finds in such a short time!
  2. My favorite nugget, and favorite specimen gold. The nugget isn’t the prettiest, but I found it the summer I retired when out with Mike Bowers & some other Auburn Goldhounds…nice folks. It’s still my biggest I’ve found. The speci was found right here in Idaho a few miles from my cabin on a friend’s claim.😊
  3. Just watched that episode….that road is crazy! What an absolutely beautiful country you live in Phrunt😊
  4. That is so cool! And love how you explore and find your special spots. Those Texas billionaire oilmen brothers have bought up huge acreage where I like to roam here in Idaho….they’ve recently put gates up everywhere. I realize it’s their private land, but to those of us who live here, it’s been our backyard for years. Tuff change for us.
  5. Chet is away at an outing…he’s one of the few who could comment something worthwhile on this!😂
  6. Awesome gold Reese! And you work for it….I use some of your strategies here in Idaho too. Looking forward to your next book!👍😊
  7. Hi Gerry….yep, I’d have to agree with you. I loved my 7000, but where I hunt it was getting to be slim pickins, and the 7 got heavier as my hip arthritis got worse. I just got back from my 1st trip to northern Nv since getting my hip replaced a couple months ago; and with how light the 6000 is, I was able to cover serious ground on old and new areas. I did not have one skunked day, which is unusual. And guess what? I stumbled over my biggest Nv nugget…almost 9grams! And that was in an area of serious EMI. Also rustled up some smalls from worn out areas. The 6000 is pretty awesome!
  8. Bummer re the broken shaft, but at least the target wasn’t another nail….that’d be my luck!😄
  9. I’ll be watching it…I like the Parkers Trail shows better than Gold Rush now. I can’t help it, I love Parker….watched him grow up on tv. Dang, if I were only 40 years younger lol😂
  10. Loved that show! Was able to watch it online here. Hope I can watch the special episode too when it comes out.
  11. Last year my detecting partners and I had a 50% Crap Rate right out of the box too….2 of the 4 of us had to get replacements. That really is poor quality control for sure!
  12. Wow, that’s some very nice gold! As I’ve said before, you are “King of the Patch”! 😄
  13. Sounds like an awesome place to be exploring…solitude, critters, and gold! Appreciate you sharing your experience and thoughts on using the 6000. I had a few episodes of squirrelly emi in Nevada but plan to hunt Arizona next winter…not looking forward to an increase in emi!
  14. This video is a hoot! Love your Prime Minister...is that her in this spoof or an actress playing her?
