New Mexico - the hard way


Recommended Posts

Trying to find a spot you guys haven't hammered ;)

Took hours on this dirt road - broke out the GMT for a bit on the NM side in a wash - Here's what the bedrock looked like:

CLICK HERE and there's a few other pics.

No signals except a few rusty items. Dug down a bit and didn't have black sand on the magnet.

Didn't see quartz.

Brief video from top of pass- very windy CLICK HERE

Only other traffic was Border Patrol; they didn't stop me this time- maybe I'm in the database as a kool kat B)

Just got to Las Cruces. Looking to get brakes on the truck, then maybe hit the Organ Mountains - some say there's treasure there.

Man you sure get around Kelly,

When you get back up this way give me a call and we'll go out and do it again, it will be warm enough to spend a few days out. I got a few more pieces out of the area we were working and figure theres more there.

Ya, Dave- got too cold & windy up that way so I bailed to AZ again. I look forward to hunting with you.

BBoy- Coming out of that spot I kinda regretted going in (not the first time- I think the crunching was tree branches and not the suspension :D )

Homefire- I was almost in Deming today; tried to go to the volcanoes from the south but sand got too thick so I quick back-upped to not get stuck. Did a little beepin the east side of Potrillos TODAY'S JUNK

I'll send you my number. Overnighting in El Paso but itinerary is open.

I just clicked through all 103-photos Kelly. All I can say is - I wish I could spend three-months with you exploring and traveling. Thank you for letting me tag along through your eyes! - Terry

Sorry I missed ya, f0ol.

I mainly surveyed (goofed around) on the quad and did only a little detecting, so nothing valuable found.

Did you meet the Ohio guys camping near If I Can? I chatted with them a bit. They're running a wet operation.

Now I'm in Alamogordo. Got new brakes on the truck cha-ching $$$ and with diesel prices am traveling a little slower.

Good luck out there! :)

hey Frank,

I dug out the Lil Yeller for awhile yesterday!

I was pretty wore out from playing billy goat on a mountainside in Greaterville, so figured a little sit-down time was in order.

Ran a few shovelfuls thru.

Today at motel I set up in tub and had forgotten how to pan :o

no yeller from that lil bit o dirt, but the dry washer is still working fine after banging around in the back of the truck. Have some seal replacement tape but still haven't needed it.

Good product! :)
