  1. Oh my god, that’s terrible! I met her on one of my first trips to Gold Basin, nice lady 😢. How awful.
  2. 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!
  3. Bummer re the broken shaft, but at least the target wasn’t another nail….that’d be my luck!😄
  4. 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😂
  5. Loved that show! Was able to watch it online here. Hope I can watch the special episode too when it comes out.
  6. 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!
  7. Thanks for reposting and updating! I’m back from florida and this is just what I needed to get psyched up for nugget hunting! However, I’m in the same boat you were…old injury, now with bone on bone right hip, getting old can be a drag. So glad your replacements turned out so well…wish me luck, I’m finally getting mine done next week. Then hopefully I’ll be scampering around the goldfields before too long! 😄
  8. Wow, that’s some very nice gold! As I’ve said before, you are “King of the Patch”! 😄
  9. 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!
  10. This video is a hoot! Love your Prime Minister...is that her in this spoof or an actress playing her?
  11. Great detecting...your skill and patience were rewarded with a bit of the good stuff! Love those wild and vast deserted landscapes!
  12. I also take time daily to feel gratitude and say a silent “thank-you”…..on my morning walks at the cabin, or while biking along the ocean here in Florida. As I get older life is so much more precious, and I appreciate and feel a connection to Nature more and more. I’m so grateful I can enjoy the outdoors, being active, and our wonderful hobby. Happy Thanksgiving!
  13. Sorry to hear that! Yes, quality control was pretty nonexistent on this release. I mentioned in an earlier post, that out of the 4 of us who meet up to detect, 2 of us had faulty detectors out of the box...a 50% crap rate! Thank goodness my replacement seems ok. Good luck.
