Welp.

The itch got too great and Dad and I decided to go out today.

There has been a lot of storm activity in the last few weeks in this area and I have found gold in this wash before.

We got there by 6 am and to our dismay, the wash still looked the same...just wet. :(

Wasnt too bad for the first few hours but then it got steamy!

Hit the wash with my big coil hoping I had missed a nug or two down deep. Noop...Did some patch hunting on the sides of the hill where I think the vein that was in the creek may have run up....noop.

We moved on to another wash in the area and came up empty on that one too. Thought I had one with a nice mellow sound in the bedrock but it was a bullet fragment. Dern it.

We did some exploring for new areas and then pulled out around noon.

When your dripping 3 and 4 drops of sweat at a time....its time to go home to the A/C!!!

Least we got out. :)

Getting out prospecting is better than sitting at home!

I'm sure more have been found. I only hunted them for a couple days right after the fall. It was sure fun and I got to meet quite a few nice people, some of them forum members. Would have been nice to meet you out there as well! I heard the sonic boom loud and clear. It sounded like dynamite.
