I bought my first detector in 1961, a Detectron and started hunting parks and old mining camps in Colo. and really enjoyed it. Started nugget hunting with a Garrett  in 1983 in Az.  I am slowing  way down but I will probably die still owning a detector.

Role Playing Games are a huge and diverse category. My interest is very specific to what are called first person sandbox games. This is where the view on the screen is presented as if you are there and looking out of your eyes at the world. Virtual Reality but without the headset. Sandbox games are open world settings where you explore and pretty much do as you please within certain constraints. You build your own character and they can be anything you want - that is the role playing part. The games have a theme, usually a main story you can be involved in, and many side plots. But for me the attraction is simply what attracts me to prospecting. Exploration. The feeling of being to go in any direction and see what is over the next hill. I mentioned two companies I favor, Bethesda and CD Projekt Red. The specific games are the post apocalypse Fallout series and fantasy based Elder Scrolls series, and the dark fantasy based Witcher series. I'm at heart a science fiction buff however, and so the upcoming new release from Bethesda is the one I've really been waiting for. If you have an interest in where the state of the technology is at now in 2023 check out the deep dive video below.

I have participated in many forums with a wide variety of topics, and for many years, but I have never seen one with such a human quality and as much knowledge as the one you created. DetectorProspector is a unique place, and unique places can only be created by unique persons: THANK YOU Steve

Mainly I will be nugget hunting in California with the Axiom and hunting Lake Tahoe with the Axiom from here on out, with the other two machines possibly getting some use now and then.

Is most of the shore line open to the public?  I know that there was a big Golf tournament at Edgewood Resort last weekend and the shore line was packed.

There are many public beach’s, more than I could cover in a long time. It’s more like an inland sea than a lake. And yes, they gets tons of activity. The problem is parking - some places if you don’t get there early you are not going to be able to park within miles. Over 40 beaches, see the link below for interactive map.

I believe there are ski fields in the area too, get that Nox up under the lifts and around where people park up their skis, taking gloves off can be a risky process with rings hooked on them and people do it on lifts to play with their phones, and obviously when they park up their skis and snowboards to go eat or something.  It's been one of my best places for detecting.
