Last weekend I joined a groups of folks doing a bit of detecting. It was a great trip and a lot of gold was found. My friend and I brought along our cast iron and kept the crew fed while we were out there. It was great meeting so many like minded folks...new friends each and every one!

:thumbsup: Oh yeah! It wouldn't be a proper trip without a big ol' pot of peach cobbler to satisfy the sweet tooth! There wasn't any left so it must have been ok. :-)

The gold is great, but my favorite part is meeting so many great people. Everyone was excited to be there and so very friendly. It's easy to get a little bit jaded with everything going on in the world, and this reminded me of just how good people can be. All of us outdoor people are the BEST!

I also watched Jeff's video and yes, everyone Looked to be having a great time! I know that area very well. We (GSSN) have claims close by to those of Jeff's in Arizona, but so far I have not been able to duplicate finding similar nuggets on our claims that his guests have recovered, but I will not give up.

Keep up the good work and I'm sure that our paths will cross sooner or later.

Funny you should mention GSSN! I saw your sign at the turnoff and was wondering about your club. Jeff's claims are a bit further west and that might be part of the difference. I really hope we get a chance to meet down the road somewhere. That would be great fun!

Joanne, great video of a great time. I've watched other videos you star in while exploring the outdoors.

Nice gold, and looks like a lot of fun was had as well.

All the best,

Lanny, thanks so much! We have loads of fun when we are out exploring different places. I need to retire again so I have more time to get out.
