    Hello everyone I'd like to document my expeditions this year.

    This will be my first season of being an "Electronic Prospector". I've studied most of the summer and am ready to go. I still need to learn more about Geology but I'm hoping this will come with time in the field.

    I look forward to posting my adventures/expeditions with you all

    Trip was called off today due to temperatures too high for that area. 97F. Next trip will be before Halloween sometime.

    Here's the previous trip from a week ago.

    I wanted to walk from claim corner marker to each corner marker but only made it about 200ft from the SE claim marker. The reason was as i was going i just couldn't resist digging up (everything) hot rocks lol. I used the GM1000 today and its seriously sensitive and to be honest i like my EQ800 way better. I didn't find any gold but i did find 2 bird shot and...waaait for it....i found a new friend lol!

    Who are you using for hosting your photos? I was using Photobucket but now that they want to charge you, I don't want a monthly fee for the one or two photos I may want to share a month.
    Thanks

    I'm back everyone, I didn't find anything because i didn't even make it to the destination. But close. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. My girlfriend hated every bit of it, lol. She also slipped and fell on the GM1000, scraped herself up and now the GM1000 wobbles a hair. I wont even go into the complaining I heard about walking up the hills.

    I got there at about 11:30am temp was about 75F. It was VERY close to highway 87. Decent dirt road to the place where we parked. Continuation to the destination needed a ATV which i didn't have. The walk to the destination is about 3750ft.

    The area seemed not so touched by man sorta speak. was quiet, saw a prospector come out on a ATV and rode past us.

    I started at the purple box.

    I ended up at the light blue box. (notice the white turn in the wash, i have a picture)

    The red box was my actual destination.

    I think i'm going to get a Honda Pioneer 500. I can't be spending my whole time walking to these claims.

    Here below is what the new area looks like. I'm to new to determine if this location looks good, but i'm guessing it looks good.
