  1. Just canceled my prospecting trip to meet up with my buddy in AZ. due to the price of diesel fuel at $5.35 per ( 1200 mile round trip ) and still expected to go up more. Been planning this trip for months. I bet there will be lots of folks that will change travel plans this year.
  2. I have a large pick and use a large earth magnet ( 2'' X 1'' X 1/4'' ). I wrap my magnet in electrical tape as it makes it easier to remove black sands. I just stick the magnet to the wide side of the pic and just let the magnet hold itself on.
  3. That is a large gold bar, I have never seen one that big, or one worth that much. COOL.
  4. As mentioned previously, a 4500 or 5000 could be a great option, the price for a used one or even new 5000 is a less expensive investment and many more coil options than any of the other detectors. It is heaver than the 6 but less than the 7. Good luck with which ever detector you choose.
  5. Good questions phrunt, thanks for asking the questions we all want to know.
  6. So far I am lucky, the head phones charge like you would expect, every thing else seams to be OK also, wish the best for every one else.
  7. Like jasong my hearing is still very good despite loud music, welding, grinding, tree cutting, age, ect, and I am very thank full for that, helps my detecting ability for sure. Don't always like using headphones so depend on external speakers much of the time and have confidence in what I hear.
  8. Watched a few clips on u-tube and ordered seasons 1-3 on Amazon. Really funny, thanks for pointing this out.
  9. Good going Doc, all the best to you.
  10. Placer Gold, cool article, have not heard of some of the mining methods others I have used or seen on some of the gold shows on TV. Thanks for posting this, I will go back and read more.
  11. One of the coolest plates I have ever seen, I hope the person you gave it to realizes how rare it is and keeps it or gives it to someone that values it.
