    1st time out with gold monster 1000

    really nice weather for some beeping. took the new gm 1000 out for its trial run.
    started in a big wash known for small bits and lots of lead bird shot.
    after 2 hours i had the 2 smallest ones in the pic. i was using auto 1, seems like it works well.
    sounded much better/louder in manual.
    i prospected around a bit and found a tributary full of lead, no gold.
    kept moving and found another small tributary, this one looked good. looks like
    it was worked hard by the old timers. almost all bed rock with very little dirt and a bits of ironstone.
    first signal was the biggest bit, it was loud. found the rest in the next few minutes.
    good part is there is about 100 feet more of the wash to hit next time i go out.
    total weight for all 8 is only 4 grains but i was having a good time digging them up.
    im sure i could have found these with the gold bug 2 as i have found smaller with it
    and i am used to manual ground balance, i like to run the gb2 a bit hot.

    it should start cooling down enough in the next few weeks for the green mojave to start there hibernation.
    i dont mind the diamondbacks, but them green mojave will chase you down.
    they will get your adrenaline pumping fast.
    there seems to be a lot of them in that nugget patch/area.
    then ill take the 5000 out to try to get some bigger chunky nuggets.

    made it out yesterday, still pulling mesquite thorns and catclaw out of my hands this morning.
    seems like i dont find any gold unless i shed some blood.
    but i did clean out that small tributary. the gold did not go up much farther than where
    i left off. the 4 bits were detected and the dust was from doing a bit of vacuuming.
    11 grains for the day. might have to take a closer look at the quartz vein in that ravine.
