matt Posted February 15, 2010 Report Share Posted February 15, 2010 Unfortunately, my brother and his family had to put down their dog yesterday morning unexpectedly. To get away from the house, they came to visit my folks and my family. With everybody in tears, I decided to take them out for some gold today. Luck would be on our side because I have been working a small patch. My brother and my dad were using the GMT and I was using my 4500. We were able to get 3 nuggets, all just over a pennyweight. Their sadness turned to happiness as they each dug the nuggets by themselves after I found them with the 4500. What a pleasure it was to see them smiling as they saw the glint of gold after breaking up a dirt clod. The kids did not want to leave. Even the square nails were a treasure. I have never seen anybody get excited about digging a bullet, but that bullet could have killed somebody back in the 1800â€™s! Although I did not come home with a nugget, I came home with more happiness than any nugget could have brought to me. We will have some more competition in the gold fields in a few years! Their smiles say it all. Take care.Cheers,Matt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
