    Work is only a diversion of time after I get bored with detecting for gold nuggets, hunting whitetails, fishing fresh and salt water, tying flies, biking, hiking, kayaking, orienteering, ice fishing, treasure hunting with my detector, beach hunting with my detector!

    GPZ7000 ... For Sale $6000

    Got a harness for the detector ... my big problem is I don't like being tethered to a harness ... Up until this Fall I have been swinging the 7000 without 'benefit' of harness and bungee. At almost 70 years old now the shoulder doesn't want to do it for more than about 3 hours now ... I like to hunt 5-6 hours at a time! Just a heavy machine ... BUT a great gold getter!

    Hey Jim ... Glad to see you are out there posting again ... a bunch of us on various forums have been wondering how you are doing.

    A fun Arizona C&R hunt

    You and Dean did well ... Congrats!
  4. I just don't see much activity on the gold market in general. Even with the equities markets tanking the last couple weeks the escape into gold for protection and preservation has not been like it used to be. I see it staying between a trading range of a high of 1300 and a low of 1100 ... pretty wide gap percentage wise but I certainly can not find any reason for it to revisit the highs of years ago.
  5. Great detector and I have found a lot of gold with it. I'm getting older and this machine is just a bit heavy for this almost 70 year old. If you have been wanting one but just didn't want to pay the $8000 price tag for new here is your chance to pick one up for $6000 if you pick it up in Prescott Valley AZ or it can be shipped for $6060 in the lower 48 USA.

    3 Nugget Finder Mono Coils

    Hey George aka Outdoorsman 1955 ... I do still have the 16" coil. It is $200 plus shipping. I am guesstimating shipping to be about $25. Do you still want the coil?

    3 Nugget Finder Mono Coils

    Hi George ... Just getting back into AZ ... been in NH all summer doing my bass fishing tourneys out of my kayak ... just haven't been on line much at least with the gold forums. Anyway I will look in the morning to see if the 16 is still there ... I don't remember selling it before I left in May though!
  9. Not so sure the weather he is getting is all that cool. We have a heat wave going on here in New England that is extended into Eastern Canada. Hot and very humid last few days and expected to be so for next few as well. We should have a little relief on Saturday and then back up in temp/humidity next week.

    New Forum Upgrade

    Forum looks good Chris ... I haven't been on for a couple weeks while in TN at my National bass fishing Championship. No issues logging on.

    You and Eric have been busy! Nice haul for the season. See ya next year!

    Tried a new spot

    Chris ... Treasure Hunting I see ... Looks like it was fun even without the gold. Finding that kind of treasure says no one with a detector has been in the area ... must be a mountain man's homestead area! Trapper or hunter ... perhaps an old buffalo hunter was there given that old bullet. Just a few fleeting thoughts based on the finds.

    Montana was famous for scaring the living stuffing out of folks! I rode with him a few times ... the first couple were 'exciting' to say the least. I bought my RZR based on those rides! The speed and rush of the thing screaming down Castle Hot Springs Road and then an immediate right hand slide turn to a wash he wanted me to try sold me! Call me crazy! YUP!
