    Prospecting
    Yes he may be goofy, but they are about the only prospecting videos that can keep my 8 year old son interested thru the whole video. Me, i can watch some one dig and run sluice for hours. The only problem is that "COME ON LETS GO" has become a common saying.

    Finding GOLD
    Thought it was going to be a crappy day, your pics changed that. Thanks

In the upper right off of the paper plate pic is 2oz of micro fines that can't be seen with the naked eye, then it shows some of them in the green pan. Looks like dirt but it's fine powder gold from here in my old channel. The copper pan is stuff that I donated to the cause back in the day. I still remember throwing a pan when I only got ¼oz an hour that day. I have friends still making 3 ounces plus an hour every day so do the math

    Then let's hope Nickelodeon doesn't come out with an episode of Dora the Explorer metal detecting!
    In addition to potentially corrupting your 8-year old, I think it might very well destroy the hobby for me!

    I think Jeff is pretty darn funny!! I have watched a bunch of his videos-- he sure is goofy-- but when your bored out of your gourd --what are you going to do. When the ground is frozen, or detector or mode of transportation is on the fritz, so come on lets go --watch some videos.

    I also get the feeling he knows A LOT more than he lets onto in his YouTube videos. (?)
    I agree, the man has some good information to share, you just have to look past his silly antics.

    When I first got into this new hobby, my internet surfing brought me to some of his videos.
    Yes, some are just corny. But I have seen of Mr. Williams when the character is dropped and he starts going off on Geology and a whole lot more. The Man knows his stuff for sure.

    Plus he has the balls to make up a character, build up a YouTube following, and really start to do some serious directing and writing etc. all the while becoming a solid figure in the prospecting/mining world - albeit for kids...

    And he now does not have to work for someone else (I don't think anyway) and making a living on his own terms while revolved around what we all love to do. Hunting for Gold.

    How can you knock that

    I lasted maybe 15 Seconds

    At first I thought he was Tom Massie. I had to double check you said Jeff Williams.

    I used to hate when Tom got Hyper like that.
    sorry I'm not one of his daughters when they were 7 years old.
    it just doesn't make me sit back & giggle til I pee.

    I'm still waiting for them to announce this years East coast Shows.
    They promised the announcement would be made before the end of 2015
    but it never came although I'll probably be disappointed when they do & forget PA again

    I made it 7 seconds. Had stumbled into other videos by him, made it just about the same amount of time.

    yea perhaps there is bickering

    Last years September 24, 2015 West coast Announcement said "Stay tuned for announcement of East Coast events before the end of 2015."
    Gold & Treasure Shows Unveiled

    Now their January 29, 2016 announcement is changed to "Also, stay tuned for the announcement of the GPAA’s East Coast Gold & Treasure Shows."

    Gold Shows set to begin in February

    I have to admit that I like his informational videos, even though the delivery can be a little over the top. He actually seems to have quite a bit of knowledge to share and I'm a sucker for anything prospecting or mining related on the Uewtoooob.
    HEY!!! That's NOT FAIR!!
