Found these little guys today. 1.1 grams of California gold. The power of these machines are incredible.

Hey Retorted,

No doubt the Minelab PI's are the "Cat's Meow!" Great looking nuggets. Hope to see more in the near future.

Wishing you much more luck,

Hey Retorted,

I have to agree with you. I look forward to the weekend and getting out. That being said, I'm still recovering from a broken wrist, so I've been going stir-crazy the last month or so.

Sorry to hear that Rob.
A broken wrist is a MD'ers worst nightmare.
Just think , all that gold you haven't found is still waiting for you.
Hopefully your bones will mend before it gets too hot.

Good luck

Thanks NK,
I'll remember that. Brand new to the minelab pi machines, thought this would be the right category to rave on em.
Went out today and got skunked. Dug a lot of deep holes only to find lead and iron.
Oh well. There's always next time.

Thanks for your service to the people of the USA. My old man is a vet.
Can't thank you guys enough.

Take care

I assume we're talking about the 5000 rather than my punny sd2200v2. Most of you are probably going to say I need to save my pennies, nickles, and dimes, but that's difficult to do in this economy. Hey Rob, what could I get for a trade in? Or should I say a trade up? I'm sorry about you wrist. Broke my years ago, and it hurts till this day.
