    Super excited!

    Hello everybody! So glad to be a part of a group where everybody shares a similar passion. I'm from Southern California, Orange County to be exact, 20 years young and enjoying life (I'm here for a good time, not for a long time). I am a green horn gold prospector (about a year under my belt, with only about 4 outings total). I can find my way around a stream or arid ravine, but I'm no pro, and have a LOT to learn, but that's what makes it fun! Self development, learning, growth, and being rewarded for your hard work is what it's all about. I love to snowboard, shoot guns, hunt for gold (sluicing, panning, can I call it blue-bowling? Haha), spend time with my lovely fiancée (she's the only one who doesn't call me an old man for prospecting), as well as spend much of my time outdoors. I study criminal justice in college, on my way to becoming a deputy sheriff. I'm planning on joining GPAA this week, so I would be glad to group up with anyone who would like to go. Hopefully I can learn a lot from everybody here, and share what knowledge I have. Feel free to ask questions, and happy hunting everybody!

    Welcome DP! I hope you learn much and have lotsa fun here! There are a bunch of great folks on this forum!
    Criminal justice eh? I appreciate David Eaglemans' works (Baylor college) in the area of neurolaw (and other areas). I am an advocate for recidivism reduction and learned much from an Atlanta atty Dan MacDougald and Norman Malik-Yonan. Good luck and blessings in your study and chosen line of profession.

    As soon as you get a bearing on the mother-lode out there, PM me! LOL!

    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    Welcome to the hobby. GPAA is nice, but don't forget the NRA for your rights to gun ownership.

    Hey thanks terry! The Route 66 is a GPAA chapter, it's the closest one to my house. Definitely going to be joining soon though!
    Pat, I've always wanted to help people and defend others. I have a 4 year old little sister, so I want to keep the area safe for her and my future family
    Sandman, I'm already an NRA member, that wasn't even up for debate when I signed up haha
    Thanks for all the warm welcomes, glad I picked a forum with such friendly people! I'll keep everyone updated on my finds, currently going through my concentrates from calico as well! Got a nice picker and some flakes. Running the rest through a blue bowl for all the micro fines, wish I had some smaller classifiers though

    Thank you smalls! So I bought myself a cheap 50 dollar detector from harbor freight, just to hold me over until I get my garret 150 for Christmas. I did end up finding a few coins and a silver or silver played heart charm. Haven't tested it yet, but it's not magnetic, and it's got a little black tarnish on it. Now I'm hooked!
