There was a guy the other day goes by Winslow he found a beautiful gold coin I want one. He has a 800, so do I, he has a small coil, so do I and he’s on some old land full of iron, same here! So that’s all I needed to know, so off I went to get my gold coin. Put in 4.5 hours and got nothing but iron. The good news is that’s a little les iron I’ll have to deal with tomorrow

I've been digging almost everything since July 29Th 1995.
You always have to keep one thought in the back of your head-

"TODAY'S THE DAY!" (Mel's Motto)​

And you are absolutely right it’s a lie we tell ourselves and when it actually happens and verifies that you’re not crazy and this treasure I found is all mine.

Good to keep thinking positive, I myself can be terrible at that part. Eventually you're going to find something good keeping the effort up.
I tell ya JBA I’m 52 so I have a lot of time to make up cause one day I’m not going to be killing it like I am know.

It will happen sometimes sooner or later...I’ve been going out there since the early 80’s and it finally happened
