  1. Does everybody tent camp?

    Retiree- Try a hammock. If you still want to get the full experience of camping and packing light then the hammock is the way to go. They are light and don't take a lot of room. I have slept in one for years now while kayak camping and backpacking in the Smokies. It is like sleeping on air and...

  3. Anywhere to pan around the Nashville, TN area?

    Hey str8flexed, If your looking to find gold around middle Tn then don't get too excited. Anything around middle Tn found will be microscopic and pinhead sized at best. Gold in Monroe and Blount co. is best. Good sized flakes and occasional nuggets are found here. Upper northeast Tn has gold...
  4. Blind dowser.

    Art - For some time now I have been reading and following you on this dowsing forum. I have been quite for some time now due to work and adventures but I just want to tell you how I constantly read how people bash you and your dowsing claims on this forum. You are always so professional and calm...
  5. Is dowsing effective for finding glass bottles and or privy pits?

    Captain Ahab I have been reading this forum for a several months now and I have come to understand that dowsing works in different ways for different people. I think some are new, some aren't sure, some have different techniques and some look for treasure and others are satisfied with...
  6. Baking black sands

    I like to keep all my black sands till I fill a five gallon bucket. I then dry the material out, which will take a few days. Just keep moving it around and set it in the sun and it will soon be dry. I then place the sands in a tumbler with ball bearings and other heavy steel items and crush it...

  11. “You Don’t Want Us Being Upset With You”

    This isn't only happening in law enforcement but in our national parks as well. Last time I was backpacking/camping a crew of about 5-6 showed up and immediately fanned out behind trees with their military garb on and hand hands on pistol grips peeking out from behind trees. The lone female...

  14. Ever get thrown off a propert while detecting?

    I was civil war relic hunting once and took a "new" friend to a site. I had permission of course and was swinging away. The next thing I know, I looked up and saw my friend walking thru a freshly planted field. Next thing I saw was the owner heading straight towards us yelling about how "we"...
  15. Really redneck security system

    Ultimate redneck solution- I know a guy who believe it or not raises skunks. He has them de-scented and keeps them all over the inside of the house. He says they are no harder to keep than cats and they even use a litter box. Imagine walking into a house full of skunks.
  16. Learning to pan, couple questions

    Search and find a snuffer bottle where the straw can be removed. All I do is remove the straw, and empty the snuffer directly into the vial. Simple, fast and effective. Keep water in the vial.

    I have used the Snow Peak stove for 5 years now and love it. It comes in a small container about 4" long and 2" wide. It will fit inside a Titanium coffee cup and I can use a canister of gas for several trips before it expires. Sorry, can't post picture yet.
  19. Cherokee petroglyphs carved in rock in Norh Carolina

    Two years ago I was kayak camping on Fontana lake with a friend who's family came out of Chambers Creek. We camped and hiked up the creek to see some of the most beautiful old homesites still left that I have ever seen. He had a 1800s map that showed where the homesites were located and the...
  20. What is dowsing?

    Hey Art- I find this discussion fascinating and humorous at the same time. I really like how some try to throw religion into it. My wife's grandfather was as a stout, southern Baptist, Jesus believing saved Christian as there ever was, yet he found many water sources for wells in our county with...
