The "'big' green monster." Gosh I can no longer lift the box. Nor can I swing it as a pole mount... We are referring to a World War ll/Korean era SCR-625 Military Anti-tank mine detector with batteries and tubes...
A lot of "bad" has happened to me since the last Rendezvous... I now have osteoarthitis bad. Wheelchair. Right hip gone. But I'm not complaining ; just explaining. I have had 81 great years of living and detecting for coins, gold and even meteorites; all of which I have sold including my collection of Model T Fords, 1954 Chevy Belaire, my truck and camper, dredge, and dry-washers, including several metal detectors as I have not wanted to become burdened with them.
Jerry, keep this post going... The West Coasters Rendezvous is awesome and one of the largest and best events still being held. More later... Jim

I have never missed a West Coasters Rendevous. I believe this is their 26th? Their first one was at Follows Camp. I will likely go to the Rendevous, but it will be tough as there is no wheelchair handicapped there (as far as I know); not even even in the full hookup camping area where you will be. And the gravel roadway and grass is very hard... impossible for me to use my wheelchair... If there were a concrete walkway I could zip along fast. If I struggle with my walker I would not be able to glide it, but would need to lift off the ground each step...
Jerry I'm not complaining, just explaining the delema of those who are wheelchair bound. But I think I could pull up along the grass, but tight with my wheels on the gravel near the meeting place, making sure I do not block the gravel roadway and hang up my handicap placard along with day pass and not be hasseled by the parking enforcer...
All of the above paragraphs are off topic, but to explain the delema of those who handicapped (especially wheelchair bound) as I have found to be in areas such as this over the past year.
Now Jerry back to the subject of the Rendezvous... Rancho Jurupa Park has been greatly updated and modernized over the past three years. Can you post(?) some of the facilities, such as the cabins and information for non-local folks such as you so they may become intersted and come.
As I haven't been able to make a West Coasters meeting for about six months and out of their loop; for starters, it would be great if the Rendezvous flyer could be posted on this forum... also such as your experience in getting a weekend camping spot at the park and also signing-up for the 2012 Rendezvous. More later... jim

members of the Westcoasters have all banded together to make the Rendezvous great events. With this said
their hunt will likely be, as in the past, one of the best.

If you are in the silver hunt, may your search coil be "like a dowsing rod" and guide you over a nice silver coin.... Jim Straight
