  1. I have some of his books, and yes he was a real treasure as an author and as a person.
  2. Doc you don't jump into things with one foot, I gotta hand that to you.
  3. Your online stealth is much appreciated, thanks for looking out for me...
  4. Dear Uncle Roy, my name is not Martin lol…hope all is well.
  5. I live in southern California. The nearest desert area that is open for detecting is a 285 mile round trip and I have gone there for almost 15 years on and off. It’s not a place where big gold is found, in fact it’s known for very small gold. What it also has is tons of hot rocks and weird mineralization so it's a great area for sharpening your skills if you are interested in that sort of thing, and I am. During this insane time we are all sharing I am occasionally able to get out and spend a day detecting while honing my social distancing skills. I never see anyone except the quad riders
  6. Another thing I didn't know: This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.
  7. Hope this is informative:( I have edited this because I inadvertently included some unproven statements…apologies) From a member of the Stanford Hospital Board. This is their feedback (for now) on Corona virus: The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS -- 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the sun. 4. If
  8. (It must be a nice problem to have Rob) The SteelPhase is good as many of us have said and if you are hard of hearing, it's even better. Hope you all have Happy Holidays.
  9. Very inspirational Walker, hope it keeps going.
  10. Hi Fred, So understanding that we are all different, I have found that using Filter #1 and Mode #2 (which is best for stereo headphones), that the signal's I get are "brighter" and "crisper" from the Steel Phase than what I was using before. What I do is tune the 7000 without the Steel Phase turned on. After the GPZ is tuned I turn the unit on, turn up it's volume pretty high (8), but then make sure my threshold at that volume is comfortable and just audible enough where I hear it's variations but it's not going to give me noise fatigue. Where I usually hunt has very small gold. You have
  11. Rob how fun it is to hear that your daughter accompanied you. True gold there. I have to say that I have never seen anyone get more good-sized gold over these last ten years than you. Good hunting.
  12. I'll jump in here to agree with Rob. The Steel Phase is the best enhancer/booster I have ever used. It is pretty much apparent the minute you turn it on and use it. I used a B&Z for years, it's a great booster as well but right now I have it as a back-up; my first choice is Steel Phase.
