THE HUNT FOR WILD GOLD
That Reminds me of a detecting expedition in northern California. Two buddies and I headed out to a claim where we had received permission to prospect.One of my companions was letting me stay in his son's cabin, soit seemed onlyfairI help him
findsome local gold in his own country. The winter before, he had picked up his first nugget onmy Arizona claim and now was hopelesslyhooked. You doubtless have witnessed the transformation of a perfectly saneindividual into araoffer goldhound.Such was the case now for he was hard-bitten by 'the bug'. After arriving at the claim, setting up camp, and unpacking our equipment,Iforthwith discover I'm without a metal detector. It seems my trusty G.B.decided this was the perfect time to go on the fritz. I know how dim-witted it is not to have a backup machine, but hardscrabble miners can't always spare the cash for expensive equipment. Armed with new topo knowledge I had passed onand withall competition nullified, my buddy immediately setout in hot pursuit and within 20 minutes walkeddown to my 'rocker box' station rattling major clunkers in
a pill bottle. One of those beauties was 24 penny, theother weighed 7.5. To their eternalcredit, both the other guys in ourparty took turns lending me theirdetectors, so,I still managed to score about a 1/4 oz of nice flakesthat weekend. One of many great experiences shared with friends in the hunt for wild gold.
