'The West Australian Adventure'
Posted 24 November 2011 - 12:56 PM
This is my way of saying thank you to a couple of 'Swell Guys' (Fair Dinkum Blokes in Aussie lingo (talk) ). I've not had much of an opportunity to talk with Chris and Steve since returning home but would like to publicly say it was an absolute honor to have a couple of American icons in my camp sharing an evening meal with me.
As most seasoned electronic prospectors know, the art of being successful with a metal detector is in your mental attitude, even after a full month of laying on the hard Aussie ground dealing with a million flies, missing their families and friends and putting up with my cooking, they not once lost their enthusiasm for the Adventure.
Chris and Steve you are both welcome back in my bush camp any time..... I hope my latest endeavors at editing the video footage I obtained on our trip does the experience we shared together justice.

Thanks JP for the birthday gift. I get a year older on Dec 25th. Off to Hawaii tonight to enjoy the b-day on the beach with my wife and daughter. Merry Christmas!

Steve, happy birthday, have a great time in the islands. I've never met you but have a friend in Chris Ralph, maybe when your down in the Reno area again maybe I can get together with you two for a hunt.
Take care, Wes

Dang I have to go back!!!! Some good lessons in that segment and well done! I see Steve was perfecting the Ozzie Salute...did you teach them to detect into the wind? That suggestion gave me some relief from your national mascot...the bush fly!

Thank you for taking the time to put it up and allowing us to share some of your fun.
Always educational as well.

The videos are great, I just watched the third installment. Looks like all had a great time, I am very envious. One of these days I might make a trip there.
Take care, Wes.

That is a great example of, as you suggest, using multiple timings on good ground.
The video was great to watch and fun to listen to.
