Don't walk away Renee.... detect, even if not detecting.....

Recommended Posts

WOW... had a serious blond moment on the weekend, sharing in the hopes it saves you doing the same... LOL

I own several parcels of land in various rich areas and have had an ongoing issue with ATV'ers (that I won't get into, answer questions about etc here). Well this weekend I thought I'd try out the new Kubota and decommission one of the roads through the property (yes, I know they can go around, I"m giving them an indicator it's private land, I have no false beliefs it will stop them, this is one step in many that the Sheriff and I are taking to resolve this issue).... well as I was preparing to dig, my neighbor says to me "where's your detector"... I'm like "At home, today is a Kubota day, not detecting day silly" TOTALLY failing to make the connection that if you dig a hole in gold country for ANY reason, you don't walk away from it without swinging coil.... and went about my business..... within an hour of finishing, I watched two people (Yes, I know who you both are and I'd recommend taking Don's advise re what he said to you when he saw you loading up, you didn't see me like you told him, but I did see you, the Sheriff has both your names (J & W and photos of your ATV/bike and tread patterns..grin)...you were both vapor trails by the time I'd got to where you stopped, I didn't know a Suburban with a trailer could travel so fast..LOL) but I digress. 🤣

I get home and am chatting with a friend... and of course hear... "Did you check the trench before leaving?" OK.. now I'm really thinking "dang..." so it was late, I left it.... and went back the next morning.....

It's wild having swung on ground so long where you have to listen so hard to every little faint sound "is that a nugget, is that one" to squeek out one or two and then go to a freshly dug trench, step down into the trench of virgin dirt and BLAAAAAAAAAA BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BLAAAAAAAAAAAAA blowing your ear off like it would have been for the old timers with the first detectors... Yea, I guess I'm calling SD and early detectorists old timers now.. lol.

Anyway... the moral of the story... if you are playing on your tractor in gold country..... "Don't walk away Renee", you may be leaving almost 4 grams behind for trespassers to find.... lol

That's a wonderful surprise Christmas nugget - way to go Jen!!! :) You make a good point about never walking away from a hole. I always recheck any hole, just in case there is another nugget hiding down a bit deeper..it's happened many times.  

Too bad about the ATV'ers on your land. Maybe post some signs along the main track if you haven't already, and some very prominent property markers so there is no doubt to anyone driving by that it is indeed private. Good luck.

Here it goes again...

Haha... I can't help it if your "special friend/bestie" keeps walking RUNNING into embarrassing situations, when it would be so simple to just ignore my VERY infrequent posts...

So your "here it goes again" comment could best be placed as a response to his obviously uninformed and unintelligent "blue stake" comment, but I know you're both extremely close so I understand your loyalty. One day he'll learn that posting smart comments of no value to my posts only serves to embarrass himself, and his obvious unbridled lust for me should be spent on chasing someone more at his intellectual level, as he's obviously punching WAY above his class with me, (which I continue to show at his every invite).

I'm not sure the sadistic pleasure he takes in his continuing to pound his head into his fantasies of my bosom yet to be forever disappointed.... Granted.... it's understandable, a blond with a Kubota, a GPZ, good ground and proven track record of large results? I can't blame him but he'd get a lot further by being nice than by being a little b*tch, after all, it's been 10 years since you both started this game. 😉

There's an old saying..... you should encourage him to follow....Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

Maybe this video will help....

So why just dig trenches to stop ATVs? If I had good patented ground I’d tear it up with the tractor. 

That’s the plan eventually....  putting in infrastructure (ponds, plant etc) at present.

Very true! Maybe you should follow your own advise Jennifer before you post all of your worthless drivel...

To you as well Matt... and I mean that...to both of you... It takes a good team to drag a mini ex up that canyon and get out that kind of gold (one of your first video's I saw)... you both have my respect..have had for a long time. 😉

You have me mistaken for somebody else. Adam and I have never met nor do I live in Arizona. Actually I have not been to Arizona since attending U of A for a couple years, but that was 30 years ago!

Guys on the ground in the industry still call it Blue Stake.

K, I'll give you that one. 😉

Can I borrow that Kubota?   

If you were local, I'd definitely help you out where I could.

Some have asked what Kubota I purchased and what attachments... it's a Kubota M62 with a 12" bucket for trenching, a 24" bucket for larger trenches/moving dirt into the plant and a ripper for calichi breaking.

Nice! I know a few places that Kubota would come in handy.

The nuggets can't hide from me now... today I added an 84" box scraper to start taking the surface off and find more of those beauties....  times like these are when I love having an 8' bed for the truck (the other item is a Bobcat auger for putting fence posts in on the property) :)

Very nice setup, Jennifer!

No where for the nugs to hide now!

The auger is a great addition. Comes in handy for planting trees and shrubs too. Although.... a post hole digger builds character 🙂.
