Hey Tortuga,

  Yes, still trying to figure out a good date this coming Fall.  I have a lot of guys interested, so it's just a matter of picking a date that don't interfere with other outings or events.

I took time off last year from work around Halloween to camp and detect around the Weaver mountains.

It was still extremely hot that time of year! I wore a t-shirt around the campfire all night and I had all the flaps on the tent open.

If this year is anything like the last, November might be a good month to consider doing it.

I was off work again last November to camp and detect and the weather was a lot nicer.

Just a suggestion here....

I would suggest sometime in Jan.

Nov. has an outing at Jackass flats and Thanksgiving.

Dec. Small get together at the Q and Christmas.

Feb. Outing at Jackass flats.

Anytime before or after those dates will be warm, as Tortuga said.

Yeah January is a great month in Arizona.

Couple holidays in there too that some of us can get off work for.

Just to let you know, the Quartzite Metal Detector Club has their Big Hunt on the 3rd Saturday in January. A group of us travel the 650 miles every year to attend the hunt. If your outing was either the weekend before or after that would work out good for us as we usually spend 2 to 3 weeks in Arizona. Location wouldn't matter much because we will already be in the Quartzite area so a little more travel won't matter.

Is this going to happen Rob, and if so would you like me to mention it on my forum? If so would need a few details to point to.

 

Hope all is well with you and the family!

Hello All,

   I haven't really done anything as far as outing, but we might have obtained permission on a large section of land in a proven goldfield to have an outing.  Looking for advice on setting up an outing for anyone to show up and learn and talk with others in this great hobby.  

Advice on duration, food required and other events would be appreciated.  I really want to make it great and where everyone will learn and benefit from the outing.  

Thanks in advance! 

So being a southern AZ guy we have 7800 acres of BLM land in a proven Placer Greaterville there is a 50/50 area 50 % being BLM and 50% being cattle grazing and ranching that is open.  Some of this ground down low has never had a detector on it. Being BLM land there is a bunch of open areas to camping and RV set up. from there you would need a decent high clearance vehicle. You can always go as a guest or pay The local Club $30 to join and hit their 5 claims.  This is easy let me know if I can help

You do know the difference from BLM land and Forest Service land right?

Hey Guys,

   Thanks for asking.  What I can tell you is that there is something that I find exciting getting ready to happen.  I along with another will make an announcement about some things we are going to be doing, along with at least one outing yearly.  More to come very soon ..... :D

Planning and preparation is the best thing you can do, but sometimes the plan A is not enough for the situation so better to have a backup plan which is what we called the plan B. I agree with all the suggestions of our members here

Always expect the unexpected. Think advance for the worst case scenario that may occur during your outing. Good luck and have a nice outing,

Hey Guys,

   We just might plan on January 2018.   I'm working with another person, so we are trying to get it all coordinated so we can place a date out there for everyone to plan for.

Have you decided on a date and location for your outing yet? May include your outing in our vacation plans if the timing works out.
