boulder dash Posted August 6, 2019 Report Share Posted August 6, 2019 I was able to get out to a old patch over the weekend. The problem is it's so dangerously hot during the day. I made it out there close to dark and the humidity was really high but the heat of the day had subsided. Once dark had rolled around the bugs were in full swing as well as a extremely active thunder storm just a few miles away... Dispite those night challenges I was able to find 7 small nuggets and a few fines while bugs dive bombed my eyes.. First thing in the morning I headed back out to the patch before the excessive heat set in.. As soon as the sun came out I was drenched in sweat.. Literally my shirt was completely wet.. I drank over a gallon of water over a 3 HR period and lost it all to sweat. I was raking rocks and trimming bushes. Dispite these challenges I still found 5 more small ones by 10am . I do not recommend heading out this time of year unless you have experience in doing so. 4 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
