  9. Hey all: Dad and I got out today to do some detecting. Unfortunatly....the rain wiped the road out going up the hill and I didn't want to chance getting high centered by sliding into the gullys that were carved in it. So....plan B...what was plan B....oh yah, Just go find another wash somewhere. Hit a couple of new spots and found lots of old lead and a interesting casing. Its 40 cal. and is a rimfire with two hammer hits on it 180 deg. apart. It has a H stamped on it from the inside. The other thing is also 40 cal but is pretty small and I cant see it flying through the air very well. Anyone know what these items are. Im thinking the casing is from Wyatt Erp or Billy the kid. I may be wrong though. Really awesome weather out there. Go detecting! Tom H.

  14. Man, congrats Rob! Your in a good spot for sure. Hope you get more out of it. What did you ever do with that quartz/gold you found? Shep is getting some nice slabs out of his. Tom H.
  15. Hey all: Welp, got out today with Dad, and Luke. It was a bit cool in the morning but once the sun got into the wash I was peeled down to a shirt. Hit some washes up at LSD. Cleaned up a lot of garbage I found a 22 short that has been up there so long the bullet was almost gone from corrosion. I love picking in the ground for live 22 rounds Hit a wash and was pulling more garbage out of it. Tin, boot tacks, the general junk. Im getting weary and start heading down the wash to the truck and I get another signal. Great, sounds like that last piece of tin. I walk away still swinging listening for the sweet sound. About 5 feet away a little voice in my head says to go back and dig it what if it is a nugget. I look at the boot scrape...ok...Ill dig it. Get down six inches in all the sand and its out. Yup, got to be tin, its not in the bedrock....however deep that is? In the scoop and DOH!!! Its a hunk of yellow! 2.8 grams. I almost walked away from it. Lesson learnt Got a lot more trash out of that area after that. Great day out and the Good Lord blessed us with some gold. Tom H.
