Those are great videos, done from the first faint signal, to showing what can happen when you perform your search correctly.
I think all of us wonder how many of those faint signals we have swung our coils over, and passed them off as ground noise of some sort, salts from the critters, have actually been gold.
It may be that up there in the great computer "cloud" up there somewhere, there is a tally sheet for each of us, and when we cross over to the other side, we can see what could have been, in many ways.
I still am glad in an odd kind of way that I dug up that very faint signal, which, after digging what I would guess would be no less than 3 feet, to find a very nice galvanized pipe fitting. The downside to that is that I had to put all that dirt back in the hole, then try to move on. Had I not dug at that signal, I still would have been wondering just what I walked away from...
I noted the pick you used in the video, appears to be a "wingless walco", a mod that I had to do to my "serial killer walco" to cut down on the weight.
