I got one like that once. It was stuck to a boulder that someone undermined and they went past it. I put my GB Pro into the hole and while going down I was drawn to the nugget stuck in some dirt on the boulder. Easiest nug I ever found.
Yeah Chris, young Tom is in the over fifty club also but I'll let him lament about his aches and pains himself. We have a great partnership, He usually finds the gold and I dig it up. The 5000 really outshines the GB Pro but I can't carry that weight all day and climb hills too. When I stop having fun I'll give it up but until then look for me in the next wash.
I got into chasing the yeller in the nineteen seventy's and have been off and on ever since. I'm over eighty now and have slowed a bit but still manage to get out into the hills with my son Tom. He watches over me so that I don't get into too much trouble and I pop out a nugget or two every once in a while. The greatest thing that I found is the comradere and downright good fellowship of the folks in the forums. I look forward to the rendezvous and camp outs throughout the year put on by different groups. I've missed a step or two since my five way bypass but slower is the way to go with a Gold Bug Pro.
