    Awesome Sherry! You were clearly digging in the right spot too!

    Funny thing that the bigger version does even better on the finest gold right?!

    Right! When I finally decided it was time to upgrade, I had been thinking like the river flows... When the river widens the gold drops out, so I was thinking that with a wider trap that I should get more gold, and I was right!!!!

    Gold show update:
    Spent several hours Friday helping Red and Mike set up their booth and getting to feel like an insider when they introduced me to a bunch of the big names :0

    Got there early today and spent the whole day there. Won nothing in the raffle but panned free gold, chatted with lots of folks, sat in on really good presentations from Alan Trees, Mike Pung and Jeff Williams (Jeff is REALLY SMART, not just a funny guy) and shopped. I found the items I hoped to buy (black Proline Professional pan and a few do-dads and spare parts) and overall enjoyed the day!

    Got out digging today. Good way to start the month! Brought my Prospector to a little creek and wished I'd brought the Sniper...just not enough water to run easily. However my bigger Bazooka still did the job with an extra assist from me to chase the rocks off. Even so, I would have moved more dirt with the smaller sluice today.

    +30 on far right, 30-50, -50 and lead removed from our water system. A decent amount of gold considering where I was digging..weight comes in at 0.098 grams.

    Sampled a new spot today on the South Platte right across from the Mile High Broncos stadium. Ran 5 3 gallon buckets from 5 different spots and tracked my results from each hole. Sadly the total was about two dozen -50 pieces

    Judging by the number of +30's you've found so far this year (compared to last), I'd say you're doing just fine.
